I turned my 90s small bathroom into a modern masterpiece for $100! This post will show you the before and afters of my small bathroom makeover final reveal.
The time has come!
Week 4 and the final reveal of the $100 Room Challenge is here!
Phase 1 of my small bathroom makeover was everything I hoped it would be and more.
I feel so much better about allowing people to use this main floor powder room now that it fits the vibe of the rest of my house.
Don't forget to check out before I show you all the angles, let me take you through a few before shots one more time for the full effect!

It's crazy to me that I let this small bathroom be this ugly for 4 whole years!
Looking at it now, I think I didn't realize how bad it actually was. I guess it's true what they say, you never know what you have until its gone… and I think the gone part is looking pretty good about now.
Check out the new and improved version!
Isn't it such a change?
I'm totally obsessed.
Between the stencil and the paint color, it was well worth the effort.
I have included my source list and links to all the DIY projects including the DIY shelves and my tips for stenciling your bathroom below.
Cost Breakdown for $100 Room Challenge
- $19.69 Paint (I already had the green paint, this was for the Mindful Gray behind the stencil)
- $9.12 Wood for Shelves (Made 4 shelves, but I only needed 2)
- $4.97 Foam paint roller for stencil
- $11.08 L Shelf Brackets (4 total – 2 per shelf)
- $2.30 Screws to Connect Brackets to Shelves
- $52.54 Large Stencil (the stencil comes in small and medium for a much lower cost)
- Items I already had
- Frog Tape
- Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray
- Stain for the Shelves
- Green Paint for Stencil
- Seal Spray for Shelves
- Wall Anchors to Attach Shelves
- Paint Tray
- Small Paint Brushes
- Laser Level
- Decor for Shelves
For a Grand Total of $99.70… Now that's taking the $100 budget seriously. I literally laughed out loud when I tallied up all my expenditures. I will say that it is great to have spare DIY materials lying around the house.
What's Next for this Room
The next phase of this room is going to include a 9-Grid set of acrylic frames with black and white pictures of golf courses we've played as well as a new, more modern mirror.
This is the one I've been eyeing: (affilate link) Modern Mirror from Amazon.
I would have added this in for the $100 room challenge, but it would have busted my budget by a lot.
So I will by saving up over the next few weeks to full finish this room to my liking.
I would love to know what you think on Phase 1!
Please leave a comment below and be sure to follow me on Instagram to get all the behind the scenes updates in my stories.
My next big project will be our bonus room for the one room challenge starting up next week.
I'm feeling energized now, but back to back projects has never been done by me.
Because my bathroom makeover only cost $100, I was able to slip in another project!
The joys of budgeting!
UPDATE: Phase 2 of the Powder Room Makeover is complete.
