Welcome to week 4 of the $100 Room Challenge. I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since we started the challenge! If I had to name last week it would be Guest Bedroom Focal Wall. Why? Well, we will get to that in a minute.
If you missed any of the previous $100 Room challenge weeks, you can see them here:
The past few days have been rainy.
Which has made it hard to take photos and paint!
My plan for the week was to paint the dresser and nightstands and finish up the artwork and accessories.
But, every time I walked into the guest room I kept thinking that the room still needed something more.
And then it hit me, I needed a focal wall.
After a little research, I thought that a focal wall featuring wooden strips would be perfect.
The design could be kept simple, as this is a small room, and it would keep the cost low.
I decided to go with 2 foot squares that were sectioned off with strips of bender board.
Bender board allowed us to put it right on the wall without having to remove the moldings.
The Hubs looked at the design, measured, cut the boards and had them up on the wall in less than 2 hours.
Once the bender board was upon on the wall, it was time to caulk and paint.
Honestly, I was shocked at how easy that turned out to be.
This entire wall took a half a day to install and paint.
We used 9 – 8 foot x 3 3/4″ x 1/4″ boards at $2.75 each.
Next, I started painting the nightstands.
Honestly, I went WAY out of my comfort zone here.
Instead of leaving them white, I painted them a bright emerald green.
So far my sister and my BFF are loving it, but I’m reserving my elation until I see the dresser completed and everything is put together.
The wall sconces are installed, however still need to add my CordMates to hide the lamp wall cords.
Finally, my guest bedroom focal wall is perfect!
This next week is going to be a busy one for sure.
I may be working down to the finish line!
So how much have I spent?
This week I spent $24.75.
Which leaves me with a grand total of $10.57 to finish up the rest of the room.
Wish me luck!
Now, I hope that you will join me in visiting all the other $100 Room Challenge participants!
