It’s Reveal Day! Week 5. This has been one crazy month of painting, painting ,more painting, sewing and did I mention painting? I was painting until this past Monday, but I am so thankful to be done and sharing the $100 Room Challenge Reveal with you!
A quick thanks to Erin of Lemons, Lavender and Laundry for hosting this challenge. It’s such a great way to get a room makeover done in one month, for $100 or less.
Goals for the Guestroom
This is the “before” room.
Not bad, just a lot of beige and it needed to be pulled together.
My goal was to add color and make it feel more like a room a guest would be happy to spend some time in.
Week two was when all the painting started.
We started with the ceiling and finished up with the walls.
Week 3 we added a new/old chandelier that had been gifted to me.
New curtains were hung and I started painting the artwork.
Lamps, curtain rods and accessories were all painted.
Week 4 we added a focal wall!
I am so glad that we did.
It’s subtle, but oh what a change it made!
We started painting the nightstands.
And this is where I finished!
Remember I said that I painted, a lot?
I painted just about everything in this room except the bed and the chair.
Nightstand, dresser, mirror, lamps, curtain rod, accessories, the walls, the ceiling and the art work.
It makes me tired just thinking about it.
I have to say that this room took me WAY out of my comfort zone with the color.
I wanted to leave everything white.
However, the room begged me for color.
And boy, did it get it!
Want to know a secret?
I’m not even a big fan of green!
How weird is that?
But, when it came time to paint this was just the color that was right.
For years we called this bedroom the pink flamingo room, so there was a ton of pink with the navy.
Hot pink and navy are my two favorite colors!
While this isn’t a very big room, now it sure lives big.
A friend told me that it was no longer one big beige room, now it was a happy room.
Who wouldn’t want guests to stay in a room that makes them happy?
So how did I do on budget?
I’m so relieved to say that I did great.
I spent a grand total of $89.58.
Bender Board: $24.75
Which left me with $10.42.
One last look at the new guest room.
It makes me happy, so I’m calling this $100 Room Challenge Reveal a success!
Now, please join me in visiting all the other participants.
I can’t wait to see their reveals!
