Welcome back to Week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge-Guest bedroom makeover.
The $100 Room Challenge
The $100 Room Challenge is a bi-yearly challenge that is created by Erin from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry. A group of bloggers have to completely transform a room but must not spend more than $100. This small budget demands creativity, DIY projects, and bargain shopping.
I got a lot of work done this week. The room that I am making over is at our lake house. The house is about a 45-minute drive from where I live. So far, I have worked a total of 5 separate days at the house.
Inspiration for Guest Bedroom
I love vintage pieces and I am going for a vintage look for this room.

Painted the bed black.
I would love to have a new bed and I thought about looking for one at the Thrift Store. After looking at this bed, I knew I could save budget money by painting the existing bed. I am so glad that I did.
First, I want to tell you that the floors in the lake house are stained concrete floors. I get questions about the floors. There is a tutorial for the floors here.
I tried Fusion Mineral Paint for the first time and I am very impressed with it. You do not have to use a topcoat with this paint. The coverage is amazing.
Pillows were made for the bed.
While thrifting, I found an old valance and the material will be perfect for the look that I am going for. I also used some thrifted material for pillows. You can see the tutorial for the pillows in this post.
Since I need some old vintage pieces to style the room, I used Rub and Buff on a thrifted clock.
Purchased an old Table
The old table came from a Thrift Store. I thought I would probably have to paint the table because of the damage. My table cleaned up beautifully and I didn’t have to paint it. It is gorgeous but you have to wait until next week to see it styled.
I am working on a wall treatment this week and finishing styling the room.
The chair was finished this week. Check back next week to see the final room reveal.

Ooh it’s looking so good in here! I love that Rub’n Buffed clock, and how you painted the headboard black. Can’t wait to see everything together!
Looking great! The valance to pillow is genius.
I am so impressed at how little money you spent! The table is so pretty, I can’t wait to see it styled. It’s going to be a wonderful room.
You have gotten so much done! I have heard great things about the Fusion paint but haven’t tried it myself yet. The bed looks awesome black.
The bed turned out amazing! Love the black with the vintage-looking linens. This room is going to be so cozy, can’t wait!
