I am sharing my bathroom vanity makeover that I did for the $100 Room Challenge. Add crafting aluminum sheets to your vanity drawers to update your vanity. This project is easy and inexpensive.
This is a bi-yearly challenge where a group of bloggers makeover a room in their home and they have to spend less than $100. I love this challenge because you have to get very creative in order to stay under budget. This is my first time participating in the $100 Room Challenge and I have participated in it 6 times now.

I thought my powder room would be the best room for this challenge because I have not updated it in several years.
This is the before picture, and I believe painting the vanity white really brightens and updates this bathroom.
This project is so quick and easy to do. It only took me a few minutes to add the metal crafting aluminum onto the drawers.
When I was at a conference last year, I was given a sheet of aluminum from MD Building Products and waiting on the perfect project to use it on. I cut my tin very easily with tin snips but you can use any metal cutters.
Measure the center of the drawers and cut out the rectangle-shaped pieces. I placed it onto my drawer and I stuck the drawer pull screw through the aluminum sheet.
Add a few dots of glue so that the aluminum sheet will stay in place.
Place the 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!
