Today is the big reveal for my farmhouse laundry room makeover! For the last 4 weeks I have been working on giving my laundry room a much needed makeover and only spending $100 to complete it! Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry has been hosting the $100 room challenge this month and I’m so excited to have joined. My laundry room is looking sooo much better now that I’ve given it a makeover!
Thank you to Cutting Edge Stencils for providing a stencil for my makeover!

First let’s take a look at how my laundry room looked when I first started. It was a blank slate with no color, style, or decor. It looked so bland!

Let’s take a look at some more after shots! I’m so excited for this transformation!
First I started this makeover by painting my accent wall white (Snowbound by Sherwin Williams), then stenciled the wall with my stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils to achieve the look of tile. Then I added some DIY shelves by installing some brackets (with the help of my husband), and screwing them into my wood shelves that I stained with my favorite natural stain.
I also spray painted some dollar store bins, made a couple of DIY wood signs using some leftover materials and this transfer technique, and hung up some metal hooks and a mirror over the sink. I love how the mirror has panels that make it look like a window above the sink. A few months ago I found it on clearance at Hobby Lobby and just had to have it!
I added a laundry hamper from my daughter’s room, and some baskets and decor from other rooms in my home. A great way to change things up on a budget is to shop from other rooms in your house!
