This is the $100 Room Challenge Week 4. This is a challenge where a group of bloggers committed to makeover a room while not spending more than $100. I am so thankful to Erin from Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry for putting this together because this is my kind of challenge. The great thing is that we have 5 weeks in March so we didn’t have to push ourselves so hard this week. I have two more blogger challenges going live this week so I took it easy on my powder room.
This is a bad cell phone photo but the bath before the makeover is dark and needs some TLC.
I have painted the powder room vanity bright white. The color is “Dove White” from Benjamin Moore. I cut and added a DM aluminum metal sheet to the front of the drawers. You can view the tutorial here.
This light fixture was in the house when we purchased our home but it was brass gold. I had spray painted it black many years ago and now I am going to paint it metallic silver. I am also going to spray painted the towel holder and the toilet paper holder metallic silver
We purchased the wood for our board and batten walls last week. I had planned on putting the boards up by myself but my husband started on the bathroom before I had a chance so I just rolled with it and let him do it all. Before I knew it, he had installed all the boards.
I patched the nail holes in the boards with wood putty and sanded the boards with a 120 sanding block.
He caulked the gaps between the boards and the walls so that it would look cleaner, and I sanded and painted over the caulk.
The boards are ready to be primed and painted which I plan on doing this weekend. I will post a tutorial of all the supplies we used and step by step photos when we complete the board and batten walls. I will paint the boards and the walls from the board and below Dove White this week. Be sure and check out the other bloggers progress.
