$100 Room Challenge: Master Bedroom Reveal

Wednesday, January 30, 2019


I am so excited to share this $100 Room Challenge bedroom reveal! I have been feeling the itch to update our bedroom for some time now as we've had most of the furniture in this space since we moved into our first apartment together (my dresser was actually a gift for my 16th birthday... so we're talking 15 years!).

If you are just tuning in you can catch up below!





When it comes to makeovers- I like them cheap- which is why I love the $100 Room Challenge! Don't get me wrong- sometimes you need to spend some money on makeovers/renovations in order to do them right but I really felt that I could update this space without having to spend too much!

My entire goal for this makeover was to make the space feel brighter. At one point I bought a lot of dark wood furniture pieces because it was 'safe' but over the years I've realized that neutral, bright white spaces are my jam.

Let's take a look back at this months makeover. In Week 1, I shared my 'Mood Board' for this space. In Week 2, I showed you a simple and cheap way to update your window treatments with bamboo shades. In Week 3, I transformed our Ikea Hemnes nightstands with paint. In Week 4, I showed you how I made our Drop Cloth Tufted Headboard! And this week is the REVEAL!

Before we dive into the reveal let's take a look back at how our master bedroom looked before...



The space felt dark and dated.

Now this space is light, bright and airy- full of texture! Exactly what I was going for!





I love how much texture these bamboo shades add to our dormer windows.


I knew I wanted to switch out the artwork above our bed and lately I've really been into basket walls. I found these baskets for a total of $6 at GoodWill (I went on a day when certain purchases were 1/2 off)!


I changed things up by overlapping the baskets. I love that this makes it look like one large art piece instead of a lot of baskets.



One of my favorite parts of this makeover was making this Tufted Drop Cloth Headboard! It was an easy, cheap update but had a major impact.



One of the biggest tips I have learned when decorating my home is to buy statement pieces in neutral colors so that it is easy to change up other decor as your tastes change! A perfect example is our white bedding- I love that as the seasons change I can simply switch out a throw pillow or wall art to match. Or, in this case, change out the rest of the room and it still matches 😆!


And a simple update to our window treatments made a major impact.



On the other side of the room we switched out our dark wooden dresser for this lighter one that we've been keeping in our guest room.


I found this dresser on the side of the road last year and gave it a major facelift with some paint!


I just love the texture these new blinds add to this little nook.



The last thing I did was add these sconces that I found on Marketplace above our TV. I have never known what to do with this large blank wall and TV walls can be so hard to decorate around. I love the touch of charm these lights add. (To be completely honest, I was NOT planning on purchasing lights for these- I simply wanted to add them as decor- but I did recently purchase some puck lights that were a bit of a splurge in order to actually have light if we wanted it. This was NOT part of the plan for these so I am not going to include them in my final budget but I did want to note it.)


I honestly cannot believe how different this space looks and feels! The new bamboo shades, painted side tables and drop cloth tufted headboard all had a major impact!



Let's take a look at our updated To-Do list/Budget:
I did happen to go a bit over budget a smidgen but if you remember there were places I could have saved a couple bucks but didn't based on convenience- every penny counts! I still cannot believe all that I was able to accomplish for $112! This space so desperately needed some attention and it was so fun to make these budget updates and completely transform this space!


Be sure to check out all of the reveals in the $100 Room Challenge below! These bloggers have been working so hard this month! I'm so excited to see what everyone has been working on!




As always, Thank you for visiting R&R at home!
