Welcome to our September challenge! This month we’ve taken on (once again) the $100 Room Makeover! All it takes is $100, and one room needing an overhaul, update, refresh, restyle, or makeover. Just a few months ago I showed you my $100 laundry closet makeover. This month I’m doing a bathroom makeover on the “world’s smallest bathroom”! Our downstairs guest bathroom, or powder room, is only 30″ across. I can stand in this room and touch both walls with my elbows! You’ve probably seen a lot of the work we’ve done already in this room (Scroll down to find links if you haven’t.) but here’s what it looked like when I started this step:

$100 Bathroom Makeover
We just finished a remodel and I didn’t include that in the total… although it was pretty cheap, it wasn’t under $100. So I started with a blank slate. A tiny gray and white room. I specifically chose the colors so that I could switch out decor as seasons, or my moods changed. I showed you the painting process and what paint I used for last month’s challenge.
This month I decided to style it with some of my favorite farmhouse style pieces and just a little touch of fall color.
Decor Around the Sink
We made a trip to Ikea for some faux plants, galvanized pots, and candles to use this fall. And here’s the hand sanitizer I updated last week.
I’m kinda liking turquoise, teal, and aqua in my fall decorating this year! One of my bathroom budget tips is to use kitchen towels for guest room hand towels. Kitchen towels are always so much cheaper!
I can’t tell you how impressed I am with this sink paint. Did you see how I painted it?
Decor on the Back of the Toilet
On the back of the toilet, I added a white farmhouse pitcher, also from Ikea. It’s filled with wheat leftover from Jordann’s wedding centerpieces. I’ve been saving all the dried florals and grasses and using them every fall.
I’ve had the cheese box for a while. I think I got it at Room With a Past. I filled it with some things our guests might need in a bathroom. The California board was something I was just practicing on when I made this earring holder for Walnut Hollow. I liked the board so much I’ve been displaying it in different places around my house.
I’ve been wanting a tobacco basket for a long time so when I saw it on sale at Hobby Lobby I snatched it up! The cotton wreath came from Hobby Lobby, too. Part of their fall decor for 40% off!
Here’s the “whole” room. It’s a really hard room to take a picture of without seeing me. Got any photography suggestions for me?
And I may eventually put something on that long(er) wall. What do you think?
What I Used for This Bathroom Makeover
Here’s the rundown on the prices:
- tobacco basket, Hobby Lobby, $17.99
- cotton wreath, Hobby Lobby, $5.99
- cheese box, vintage, $8.00
