I just love the last Wednesday of the month because it marks another completed space… done for $100 or less. As you may recall, during the month of February, I have been working on a coat closet makeover for the $100 Room Challenge. While it didn’t need anything major, I did have a few goals in mind…
Before we start, let’s go back to the before shot.
Goals For This Coat Closet Makeover
Goal 1: Update the Boot Tray
In week 2 of this challenge, I shared my updated boot tray, which was simply the addition of river rocks a boot tray we already had. An easy project that took about 30 seconds.
Goal 2: Create Coordinated Coat Closet Storage
Last week I shared how I turned some blue Dollar Tree bins into faux metal bins which helped create the cohesive storage I was looking for.
Goal 3: Paint the Coat Closet
Goal 4: Cover the Wire Shelving With A Wood Overlay
We did another wood overlay for the wire shelving. At first, I thought I’d go with a white overlay because the wire shelving had a piece for hanging coats that couldn’t be covered (and it was white), but the truth is I love the look of stained wood, so I spray painted the wire shelving with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, and then we created the wood overlay to go on top. Unlike the overlay we made for the laundry room, we couldn’t use cedar fence posts because they are too short. We instead bought two 8′ x 8″ x1″ common boards. The remainder of the process was the same.
Goal 5: A Place to Hang My Purse
The last thing I wanted was a place to hang my purse, and I found this knob at Hobby Lobby. Perfect.
With all goals accomplished, here is the coat closet.
One other thing I bought was black hangers. The white ones that were originally in here looked weird with all the dark metal and shelf.
I almost feel like the closet is too empty now, but I’m sure we’ll find things to fill it with time.
Last week I had spent a total of $22.76. Here are the final costs.
Wood Shelf Overlay: $8.86
- 8′ x 8″ x 1″ Common Boards x2: $8.86 ($4.43 each)
- Stain: Free (I already had it)
- All Other Supplies: Free (I already had them)
- Paint: Free (I already had it)
- Painting Supplies: $5.63 (I had everything I needed except I ran out of painting tape)
Hook for My Purse: $5.99 (On sale at 50% off)
Black Hangers: $2.99 for a pack of 18
Total Cost: $46.23. That is $53.77 under budget!!!
Best I’ve ever done. I should totally take myself out to lunch 🙂
