Our master bedroom has a powder room. A sad, sad little powder room.
It’s actually possibly one of the weirdest powder rooms ever designed…but more on that next month when we remodel the main bathroom.
As with the rest of the house, it hasn’t really been updated since it was built in 1961. We would really like to a big overhaul with a new vanity, but that’s not in the budget (monetarily or time-wise) at the moment.
For some context (and mostly to start this post with a non-hideous photo), here’s our bedroom, and the powder room is that door in the corner:
This is the view from our bedroom. 😨
So we’re going to make it pretty, but try to do it fast and cheap. And to keep me motivated to stay on track, I’m joining the $100 Room Challenge.
It’s a challenge Erin created for herself to makeover rooms in her house with a budget of $100 and a time limit of one month, then she opened it up for others to join in and do it together. It’s pretty fun to see what can be done with so little money.
So what’s the plan?
Good question…I really don’t have a concrete plan yet. But I did have insomnia last night, so I spent several hours thinking up a bunch of brilliant ideas (that are probably all actually pretty bad now that I’m fully awake).
Here is the inspiration I’ve been gathering on Pinterest since we moved in:
Anyway…probably/hopefully will accomplish:
- Sanding and refinishing the vanity
- Changing vanity hardware
- Contact paper over the countertops
- New mirror
- New lighting
- New flooring
All that for $100 seems pretty unlikely at the moment, but I’m going to see how far I can get!
Here is what the other ladies are doing for the challenge: (and a link to join us if you want!)
