It is week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge and I am working on the Jack and Jill Bathroom Makeover. The $100 Room Challenge is where a group of bloggers makeover a room in four weeks and can not spend more than $100.
I am working on a neglected Jack and Jill Bathroom and since the budget is under $100, I will only do one side for now. This will be the “Jill” bathroom makeover.
This room’s makeover will be different than any room that I have done for one of these challenges. The problem is that the floor has to be replaced. I can’t repaint or stencil the floor, I have to replace the cultured marble floor. It is outdated (1993) and it is in bad condition. There are three rooms here. Two vanity areas with a tub and toilet in between. I have spent a little under $200 for all of the flooring materials including tile, cement board, mortar, and screws. I think I have over-purchased so hopefully, I will be able to return some material that is not used. If I third the price for the three rooms, I will have spent under $100 for the “Jill” bath.
Since I am unsure of the flooring budget, I will spend $0 on the rest of the bath. This means use paint I already have and decor that I already have. Challenge accepted!
After removing the light fixture, I used gold metallic spray paint to transform the lighting.
I removed the drawer pulls from the cabinet and soaked off all of the previous spray paint from the hardware. These will be spray painted with gold metallic paint.
The large mirror made the geometric wallpaper overpowering in the room. I will work on the wallpaper next week but for now, the mirror needs to be removed. I thought I might have to break the mirror to remove it but thanks to YouTube, I discovered that the mirror can be removed easily using wood shims. Using a hammer, the shims will separate the mirror from the wall. Tutorial coming soon!
Using an orbital sander worked best to remove the glue from the wall. I also painted the vanity a beautiful color that I will show next week.
The floor should be replaced next week. We have two more weeks to work on the Jack and Jill Bathroom Makeover. Check out all of the other blogger’s progress below.

Great tip on the mirror removal! I have a mirror that I have to remove in my powder bath and I have been putting it off because of the mess. Can’t wait to try this now!
It’s coming along! Can’t wait to see the vanity color and the new floors!
Isn’t it funny how we can find how to do just about anything on YouTube?! Great job saving the mirror. I need new flooring for my Studio Cottage / She Shed too but it will have to wait for another time. This is going to be so lovely when you get it done and a great update!

Removing that giant mirror is going to make such a difference! Can’t wait to see what color you painted the vanity

I’m so interested in following your project because I’m also renovating a jack and Jill bathroom. Great tip on how to remove the big mirror. I have the same giant mirror!
