$100 Room Challenge: Office Reveal!

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Welcome to REVEAL week for the $100 Room Challenge hosted by Erin at Lemons, Lavender & Laundry! I am so excited to share my new office with you! I will admit that I was skeptical about giving up my dining room for an office for a few reasons but mostly that I am terrible with change. I can now say this was one of the best decisions I have made in this house! Not only do we actually use this space now but my home just feels more lived in and just more R&R.

New Year New Room Refresh: Playroom Reveal!

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

I think this was the most fun I have ever had doing a room makeover! I am not sure if it was the fun of putting together a child's playroom or the simplistic nature of the design but watching this room come together was such a treat!

$100 Room Challenge Week 4: DIY Old School Covered Books

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Welcome to Week 4 of the $100 Room Challenge hosted by Erin at Lemons, Lavender & Laundry. In Week 1, I presented my plan for this makeover. In Week 2, I rounded up my favorite greige paint colors and last week I shared the best area rugs under $100. If you are unfamiliar with this challenge, those participating have one month to make over one room for less than $100. This week I have been working on the finishing touches for my dining room turned office makeover by styling these ladder shelves I stole from our living room. As you know, most of my budget went to paint and a new rug so I had to get creative with the decor I am using in this space!

DIY Oversized Chalkboard

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

I am so excited to share this week's project for the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge! If you've been following along then you know we are turning our old office into a playroom. In Week 1, I shared my vision for this room. In Week 2, I shared how I created these Land of Nod inspired storage bins. This week, I am bringing you another fun DIY project- an oversized chalkboard! What playroom couldn't use a fun chalkboard for your littles to create on?!

$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!
