Welcome back for the $100 Room Challenge reveal. I completed a $100 vintage inspired 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.
A few years ago, we purchased a major fixer-upper on a lake 40 minutes from our house. The house had not been lived in for a couple of years. It was in such bad condition that everyone who saw the inspection walked away. Let’s just say that this home was definitely in our price range. It was priced less than what the lot was worth. The home is on a beautiful level lot in a beautiful neighborhood. Our lake house was built in the 1960s and was originally a tiny fish camp. An older couple that we bought the house from did all the renovations themselves. Our walls are not straight, the ceilings are a little unlevel, but hey, it’s on a lake!
We first made the house livable with new sheetrock, plumbing, electrical, and other basic renovations. I am slowly decorating the home like I want it to be. The room that I am making over is the guest bedroom and it has become a room where we throw everything that we are not using.
I want to make the room functional and beautiful. Here is my inspiration.
Lately, I have been drawn to rooms with vintage items, antique furniture, and old art.
Add velvet textures in beautiful colors.
Find vintage art
Purchase side tables
Recover existing chair
The floors in the lake house are stained concrete. Tutorial for stained concrete here.
My first thought is to purchase a bed from a Thrift Store. The more I look at the white bed, I knew I can save budget money by repainting it. I am so glad that I did. Paint $24.
So I recovered a chair with a fur blanket that I already had. You can see the tutorial for the Recovered Chair. Total $0
The art above the bed has been moved around from room to room. I love that it is a picture of a house by a lake.
The sconces were found at a Thrift Store several months ago. I came across the adorable shades last week. Total for sconces $10. 2 thrifted side tables $30. A thrifted clock for $3 was painted for the table. I styled the table with books and items that I already owned.
The chenille bedspread was a thrift store find many years ago. We love the way the chenille feels when you cover up with it.
The brown pillows are made with thrifted material that I already had. A no-sew green velvet pillow was made with a thrifted valance and fabric glue. You can see the tutorial for the pillow here.
I painted the existing curtain rod black. The curtains were found at the Thrift Store for $3. I had the vintage art in my garage for several years.
I found the vintage art at a Thrift Store and I painted a landscape. The beautiful gold frame has been in my attic for years.
