$100 Room Challenge: Linen Closet Reveal
CHECK OUT OUR COMPLETED LINEN CLOSET RENOVATION. FEATURING DIY SHELVES, HOOKS, & BUDGET SAVVY STORAGE SOLUTIONS.
New linen closet, who dis? Y ‘all its complete, like for real, we are ready to show you our linen
Erin from Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry started this challenge a couple of years ago (you can read more about that here). Basically, a bunch of very talented bloggers gets together to take on renovating a space for $100 or less! We have 1 month to complete the challenge & the hope is to have a swoon-worthy room at the end, all while staying within budget.
This last week was a bit of a scramble as we worked on buying/reusing some thrifty storage solutions & also making tags for each of the bins. I went through 2 different types of DIY tags before I found “the ones.” Now that everything is buttoned up we are ready to share our linen closet reveal!
First lets remember what we were working with:
Yepp I should have been embarrassed to show y’all that terrible before photo but that’s real life. This closet was a drop zone for luggage, blankets, sheets & everything in between!
In week 1 I shared my mood board with y’all for the linen closet. It was filled with my hopes & dreams for the space.
The first thing we did in week 2 was decluttered the space & get rid of unused items. Next, we took down those builder-grade wire shelves & painted the whole closet with leftover Pure White paint by SW. It’s my go-to paint for making
Week 3 was the week all the shelving went up. This tutorial for shelving is the easiest & cheapest way to add built in shelving to any space. I love the way these shelves look & all the extra storage they provide.
In order to utilize the space on the longer wall, I added a row of hooks. Plus I shared a simple trick for how I hang everything in the house on our
And Now The Big Reveal
It feels like a completely different space! I love how much extra storage these DIY shelving provide & how neat & organized all my bins are. The tags are simple but I think they will make it so much easier to find what we are looking for.
I found these hooks at Hobby Lobby for 50% off & I knew they would put that awkward wall to good use!
Now the question you have all been waiting for, did I stay in budget?! Let me just preface this budget breakdown by saying if I didn’t have a lot of supplies already on hand I definitely would have went over. So my paint & scrap wood hoarding did come in handy. But, even if I had no supplies, this makeover could still be done on the budget savvy side!
Paint – (Pure White by Sherwin Williams) – Leftover $0
Linen Baskets – TJ Max – 2 x $7 = $14 (Similar)
Gray Woven Basket – TJ – $7 (Similar)
Grand Total = $82!
I did it yall! In all honesty I was biting my nails towards the end because I was sure I went over. If you didn’t have a scrap wood pile like mine or left over paint you probably would have been closer to spending $150. That is still not a bad price for some custom shelving & beautiful organization!
I want to thank Erin from Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry for hosting this amazing challenge! This linen closet would probably have been put off if not for the extra motivation. This really was so fun & I couldn’t be happier with the end result. If yall have any questions about the project feel free to comment below or email us! We love to hear from you!
