This is week 2 for the $100 Room Challenge. This is a challenge where a group of bloggers makeover a room in their home and they have to spend less than $100.

I thought my powder room would be the best room for this challenge because I have not update it in several years.
This is the before picture, and I believe painting the vanity white really brightens and updates this bathroom.
I primed the vanity with two coats of primer, and I lightly sanded the vanity in between coats with a sanding block. I painted the vanity with a good coat of white gloss paint that I always keep on hand.
When I was at a conference last year, I was given a sheet of aluminum from MD Building Products. I have been waiting on the perfect project to use it on. I have been updating my home using metallics and I wanted to bring some silver into this powder room. I cut my tin very easily with tin snips but you can use any metal cutters. I was given the sheet free but if I had purchased the sheet, it would have cost me $10 using a Michael’s coupon.
I measured the center of my drawers and cut out the rectangle shaped pieces. I placed it on to my drawer and I stuck the drawer pull screw through the aluminum sheet.
I added a few dots of glue so that the aluminum sheet would stay in place.
I placed the original knobs back on the vanity. I really think that the aluminum sheet makes the vanity look expensive even though it did not cost me anything. Even if I had purchased the aluminum sheet, it would have only cost me $10.
It is amazing how creative you can be when you have a very small budget. I am as pleased with this Bathroom Vanity Makeover as I would be if it was purchased brand new. No, I am more pleased than if I had purchased it brand new because this makeover has saved my family money that can be used elsewhere. Don’t forget to check out the other blogger’s rooms!
