$100 Room Challenge Week 3: Best Rugs Under $100

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

It's that time again... $100 Room Challenge update day! If you are just tuning in you can catch up on Week 1 and Week 2 here. When I have done this challenge in the past it has been a lot easier to bring you helpful updates every week because I was working on so many DIY projects. This time, I was thrown off by the need for a new large area rug so most of my budget was spent there. I have been lucky that in all of my other $100 Room Makeovers I have not run into an issue such as this, causing me to blow my budget. So, while I thought about dropping out of the challenge, I also realized that sometimes these things happen in budget makeovers. When I realized I was going to need a new large area rug (8' by 10') I did do a lot of research to find the best resources to purchase large area rugs at my price point. So, this week I am bringing you a list of my favorite area rugs under $100.

DIY Land of Nod Inspired Storage Bins

Wednesday, January 10, 2018


I am always looking for things to DIY for a fraction of the cost. When I saw these storage bins from Land of Nod I knew that they would be the perfect first DIY project to tackle for my sons playroom for Week 2 of the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge!

$100 Room Challenge Week 2: 50 Shades of Greige


I'm sure the title of this post has been way overused in the last several years but it's just such a good pun! I wish I had more to bring you this week but the truth is that I had a pretty busy week/week-end and was not able to accomplish as much as I was hoping before this week's update of the $100 Room Challenge. I plan to make up for it this weekend though!

DIY Casa Beads (+Jute Tassels)

Saturday, December 16, 2017


If you're like me then you spend way too many hours a day scrolling through Instagram. You may even make a small purchase or two with the perfect photo in mind to add to your collection of squares. When these casa beads started to pop up everywhere I was a little confused at what they were and what their purpose was and I tried my hardest not to want them. Well, yesterday, I gave in and made a mini version! Haha. What's that saying... If you can't beat em', join em'?

DIY Rustic Holiday Buckets

Sunday, December 3, 2017


Everything new is old again! Maybe that's not how the original saying goes but it fits with today's DIY project! When I saw these rustic holiday buckets pop up all over Instagram I instantly fell in love and wanted them to add to this year's porch to tie in with my rustic theme (full reveal coming soon). Then I saw the $80 price tag and my jaw literally dropped. In years past, I may have closed my eyes and hit order and then tell the delivery person to hide the package from my husband, but this year spending over $100 on rustic buckets just wasn't in the SAHM budget. So, I set out to DIY these!
