I am participating in the $100 Room Challenge again and I am going to attempt a Jack and Jill Bathroom Makeover for under $100. The $100 Room Challenge is a bi-yearly challenge created by Erin from Lemon’s, Lavender, and Laundry. A group of bloggers are challenged to makeover a room in their home but can not spend more than $100. We have one month to work with weekly updates on our blogs. When you calculate how much a can of paint is, you can see that you have to get creative to make it happen. You must do your own projects, shop your home, and thrift store shop.
Before we begin, I will show you a quick look at the past rooms that I have made over for the challenge.
Lake House Bedroom
These three rooms were completely transformed and I did not have to spend much money at all to help create a home that I love.
Current room for the challenge.
Our home was built in 1993 and we purchased our home in 2003. This is a Jack and Jill bath. A Jack and Jill bath is located between two bedrooms. It has a vanity area from each bedroom and a shared tub and toilet area.
I’m feeling that this is going to be my most challenging room to date. We recently realized that the toilet has been leaking for a little while. It is cultured marble and it is very outdated. It has to go. The carpet is old so it needs to be removed also. I believe that the flooring is going to take my entire budget. I will be replacing the floor in all three areas but I will probably only going to be able to use the area with the vanity in the challenge. If the budget allows, I will add the tub area. So instead of a Jack and Jill bathroom makeover, this will be a Jill makeover. Maybe a miracle will happen and I can afford to do Jack’s side of the bath too.
I will be removing the huge mirror and update the cabinet hardware. The cabinets will be painted a dark moody gray. I will add a stunning mirror that I found months ago and had nowhere to use it. The light fixture will be repainted.
As you can see, this side of the bathroom is not used and probably not be included in the makeover.
Let’s do this! Let’s see if I can do a Jack and Jill Budget Makeover and only spend money on the flooring. Check out my weekly post to see my progress.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
I was wondering what a Jack and Jill bathroom was. You do have your work cut out for you. Am looking forward to seeing how you update this space and see whether or not it becomes a space you will be using.

I am anxious to see what you will do with the bathroom. It has great bones and will make into a gorgeous bathroom. Can’t wait to see all your work.
Sherry, I had so much fun making over our guest bath last year and it was so worth the $100 and sweat equity. After seeing all your other makeovers I know your Jack & Jill bath will be gorgeous.

YAY!!! I’m so happy to see you participating again! Every room you have done has been absolutely incredible. I am so excited to see what you do in here. Flooring can be so expensive so want to see how you work it into the budget.
I love a Jack & Jill bathroom! I cant wait to see what you come up with!

I can’t wait to see how you update this bathroom, Sherry. Your other $100 makeovers have been amazing, so we know you’re up for the challenge!
