Welcome to Week 2 of the $100 Room Challenge! Kristen is making over her laundry room for the month of January with only $100 as the budget! If you missed the first post where we shared inspirational photos and the (very long) to-do list you can visit it by clicking below.
Week 1 / Week 2 (you are here) / Week 3 / Week 4 / Week 5
Unfortunately we don’t have a ton of progress to show you this week. We had a bit of a family crisis a few days ago concerning Kristen’s grandma (Vicki’s mom) and it has been rough. If you would like to send some prayers our way for our family, they would be greatly appreciated 🙂
But we did get started on painting the cabinets above the washer and dryer. We have painted cabinets multiple times in the past and knew exactly what to do.
The doors and the corresponding hardware was taken off the cabinet frame first. We already had primer on hand so no budget was used for that. We got the frames primed and started on the wall where the shiplap will be.
We also have white paint leftover from Kristen’s Kitchen Makeover which is absolutely perfect! Again, no budget needed for paint and it will perfectly match the kitchen cabinets!
(If you need tips on how to paint cabinets see our post HERE)
Kristen and her husband did get some time to run and get all the building materials that is needed for the makeover. And whoa! They didn’t really have a penny to spare! Luckily Menards was running their 11% rebate when we went, so we were able to save a little bit and stay in budget!
We are hoping to get to more of the makeover for next week, we still have a lot to do! But we will see how it goes. Thank you for being patient with us on this one everyone!
Good news though – I have a plan for the utility sink! (And it’s going to be pretty cool!) More to come on that later 😉
