$100 Room Challenge: Week 1 – Bathroom on a Budget

We’ve been slowly moving along on our progress at The Country House since fall.  With all of the holidays, birthdays, etc., it has been hard to get a lot done, but we’ve made a little dent in the dining room, which I will be sharing soon. However, today I wanted to share our newest plans with you for our bathroom! I’m all about saving money, so this will be a bathroom on a budget!

And as you may have guessed from the title and graphic above, this bathroom makeover with also be part of the $100 Room Challenge. I’m so excited to be joining my friend Erin from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry who is the brains behind this challenge. (Thanks, Erin for the invitation!) The gist of the challenge is pretty simple: makeover a room for only $100 in only 4 weeks.  Click over to Erin’s blog for more detailed info.

Behold, THE bathroom!

That’s right. There is currently only ONE in our home.

In its current state, our bathroom is blah and boring.

We are not huge fans of the cherry colored stain on the doors and vanity.

The flooring is pretty UGH too.

The thrown itself is tucked back behind the tub/shower and even though you can not tell from this photo, it is kind of a black hole back there.  (The only lights in the room are above the sink.)

So, as you can see, we have a ton that we need to do in here to bring things up to date and to mesh with our personal style.

Below is the mood board that I whipped up for this challenge. If we were to buy all of these items, we would go way over our $100 budget! The paint alone will probably knock out 1/3 of that amount! However, we are a crafty/thrifty family and are going to get pretty creative with this makeover. Wish us luck!
