Welcome back to the second week of the $100 Room Challenge where I am doing a laundry room makeover without spending over $100. This is my third time to participate in this challenge and I believe that this is going to be my favorite room yet.
This challenge has been created by Erin from Lemons, Laundry, and Lavender and it is a challenge that is done twice a year where you must totally transform a room without spending more than $100. This is my favorite kind of room makeover because I am a strong believer in creating a home that you love without going into debt. It would not be worth it to cause a financial struggle in your life. But the good news is that you can create a beautiful home without financial stress and the girls in this challenge are going to show you how.
This is my laundry room before I started working on the makeover. I love the look of open shelves in a laundry room but I love the storage that these cabinets provide too much to take them down. I have always loved to cook so the cabinets are perfect to store all my small cooking appliances that are not used every day.
I gave my old laundry room a really good cleaning before I started. The cabinets had to be cleaned well before painting. This room is where we enter the house from the garage so the tile floors really needed to be cleaned. I removed all of the cabinet doors so that I could take them outside and paint them.
Why did they put these awkward little shelves in lower cabinets in the 80’s and 90’s? They keep you from storing large items in your cabinets and what are you going to put on them anyway?
What is even worse is why have I been in the house 16 years and not removed them until now?
I did not take pictures of me spray painting the cabinets because of the weather but this is a picture of how I painted my kitchen cabinet doors the same way with a Homeright sprayer and spray tent. The tent is wonderful because it keeps debris from getting on your wet paint.
I sprayed the doors but I always roll the cabinet bases. I played around with a roll of removable wallpaper that I picked up at the thrift store but I did not like this look so I took it off. I have a new idea for a diy backsplash and I am so excited about it. I have already started and it looks so good. I can’t wait to show you all.
