It is reveal day and I am so excited to show you my $100 Room Challenge-Laundry Room! I want to thank Erin from Lemon’s, Lavender, and Laundry for creating this challenge. We have to makeover a room and we can not spend more than $100 for this challenge. I spent $36!
Let’s look at my laundry room before.
Now, let’s look at the before and after side-by-side.
I love doing laundry in there now. That’s a lie but I do enjoy walking in my laundry room now. The best thing about this makeover is that it I spent under $40 because I did everything with paint and I am going to tell you how much it will cost to do these projects yourself and it is under $50. You can do these projects even if you are not gifted in art. Visit the blog post to see how.
DIYers always have a fabulous paint stash which is usually from leftover projects.
The first thing I did was paint the cabinets with leftover paint that I used on my kitchen cabinets. Total spent $0
I needed a backsplash but I did not want to spend any money so I did a Faux Marble Subway Backsplash and you can visit the post for the tutorial, supplies, and to see how I reused items that I had in the room. Total spent $0. It will cost around $8 plus a piece of scrap board to do this project if you have to purchase supplies.
Visit Faux Shiplap Wall for the tutorial and supplies. $0. It will cost $3 to do this project if you need to purchase the supplies.
The floor is where I spent my money. The natural stone tile floor is over 10 years old and it needed updating. I have seen so many beautiful painted floors using stencils but I wanted to do something very different and I did not want to purchase a stencil. I have seen Better Homes and Gardens share how to paint buffalo plaid on a floor and I thought that it would be a fun project. Visit my How I painted Buffalo Check Floors to see the very important tips if you want to do this project yourself.
I purchased Glidden Gripper Primer $10. I purchased Valspar Porch Paint in a dark blue and white for $13 each. You need four colors so I mixed the dark blue and white to make two of the colors. Total spent $36.
I love how thick the porch paint is and it dries almost immediately. I have never painted with anything like it and I feel like this will hold up well. I will update soon.

If I would have had to purchase all of the supplies, it would have cost me $47 plus the cost of paint for the cabinets.
