It’s week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge. I can’t believe how fast it’s flying by! I got a lot done this week, although it may not look like it. A lot of tiny, behind the scenes stuff that you have to do, but really doesn’t show up that much.
A month or so ago I was at a clients home and she asked if I wanted an old chandelier.
Why, yes I did!
I love old chandeliers.
Can you say Granny chic?
I took this one home and cleaned it up, not really sure what I was going to do with it.
Until a few weeks ago.
The Hubs graciously hung the chandelier in the guest bedroom for me this past week.
I LOVE it!
So much better than the old beige ceiling fan.
I found new curtains.
Not exactly what I wanted, but they are cute, I couldn’t beat the price and my oldest son who is the one usually staying in this room loves them.
I found an old black curtain rod hanging out in the guest room closet and decided to use it.
I sprayed it Rust-0-leum metallic gold and the curtains were ready to be hung.
The package said that the curtains were 95 inches long.
I used that measurement to determine the height of the rod.
However, once I hung the curtains they were not the same length all the way across and they were too long.
So I left them hanging, turned them up and pinned them the correct length.
Then hand sewed them.
So glad that’s done!
I couldn’t find artwork for the bedroom that I loved, so decided to paint my own.
This is my inspiration piece.
It would have been perfect except it’s got a black background, which won’t work in my room.
And it says “Gather”.
Not really for a guest room.
Cute, but I’m changing it up a bit to go with my room.
I’m not even close to being finished, but I did get started on it.
I have also started on a updating a few other accessories for the room, but still have a way to go to finish them up.
So how much have I spent so far?
This week’s total:
I bought curtains for $7.25 each, gold metallic spray paint, and a faux plant for $28.49.
Combined with last weeks expenditures I have spent a total of : $59.18.
Which I feel like isn’t too bad.
I still have to make up my mind about what color I’m going to paint the dresser and nightstands.
Finish up the accessories and pull it all together in the next 2 weeks.
So that’s it for week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge, if you missed week 1 or week 2 you can see those here:
