You know what the best part is? My powder room smells like a brand new house with the fresh wood and fresh paint. I really worked hard on this room using power tools and doing a lot of painting but by far, the hardest part of this makeover was trying to get photos of a tiny powder room with no natural light! I see some new photography equipment on my wish list for Mother’s Day.
This powder room had been neglected for years. When I first heard of this challenge, I knew which room I would do. I think a powder room is very challenging to decorate but I really wanted this room to be pretty for my guest. I ended up spending $55 dollars total for this makeover. I used things that I already had but I am going to add in all the cost even though I shopped my home and used items I got for free to show you that you can makeover a room for under $100. I will break the cost down at the bottom of this post.
The first thing I did was paint the vanity white. You can see more about the vanity makeover.
I always have white paint left over from projects. I like to keep leftover paint in mason jars and I write what it is on the lid.
I cut and glued aluminum sheets that I got in a swag bag from a DIY conference to the drawers of the vanity to make the vanity stand out and look more high-end. I used the same drawer pulls that was on the vanity.
I spray painted the bottom section of the basket that was already in the bathroom to dress it up.
I spray painted the light fixture and all the hardware with silver metallic paint. Don’t ever worry about spray painted hardware because it is easy to remove the paint using the slow cooker method. Search for it on Pinterest if you ever need to remove paint from hardware. It works!
We purchased wood at Lowes for $40 to make the board and batten wall. I really think this will make the powder room unique and gorgeous. You can see more of the board and batten here.
I painted the boards with 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint. I had the primer and the paint was $15 for a quart of Benjamin Moore “White Dove”.
I painted my original mirror Silver using the Metallic paint from DecoArt. This color of this paint is a beautiful light silver which I love.
I purchased this rug for $1.95 and a second hand store that gets rugs with flaws. You can barely tell the far edge has a flaw. I always buy my small floor rugs from this place because I like to change my rugs as soon as they start looking dirty and worn.
I purchased the deer head from Hobby Lobby and I have had it for about 2 years. I took it from my living room because I thought it would be perfect in here. I always shop my house or shop my garage first.
I needed something else for over the toilet so I went out to my garage to see if I could make something.
I found this doily and picture old picture frame so I glued the doily to the frame with my glue gun.
I added a thrifted vase of flowers from my garage and I think it looks perfect. I spent $55 but if you had to purchase the items that I already had or that I had given to me the total would be $77
Wood for board and batten $40
Aluminum Sheet from Michaels $10
Benjamin Moore quart of White Dove paint $15
1 quart of primer $8.50
I do not remember how much I paid for the deer head because it was purchased over 2 years ago.
Total Cost $77.00
