So, I have decided to again join my friend, Erin, from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry for her $100 Room Challenge. I’ve tackled this challenge once before when we gave our bathroom an overhaul on a budget. This time, we are attempting to revamp our bedroom using the same small budget, but hopefully making a big impact. We’re also working against time since I’m joining up at the end of week 2. EEK!
Here is my long term plan for our Modern Farmhouse Master Bedroom.
Now, of course, a full room makeover could end up costing us quite a bit of money. (Way over the $100 limit!) Especially if we purchased all of the items in the mood board above. So we are going to have to pick and choose which items to purchase, which projects can be DIYed, and what will have to wait until a later date.
Doesn’t our bedroom look kind of meh?
Yes, of course, everything consists of neutral colors, but each side of the room is the polar opposite of the other with bright whites/creams at one end and a black hole on the other.
I don’t know about you, but it seems like our bedroom is always put to the bottom of the list when we are working on projects, storage, and cleaning. Seriously, it is the place where stuff comes to die, especially when we are trying to speed clean before company! So we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to spruce things up just for the Mr. and Mrs.!
So what exactly are we going to focus on to dress up this space and make it a bit more cohesive? Well, here is the checklist:
- Buy/Replace the lamps
- DIY a headboard for the bed
- Add a few accessories to each side table
- Put on the bed skirt that we’ve been too lazy/busy to add
- Iron the duvet cover (also laziness)
- Paint the doors/frames (window frames are already painted
- Relocate the TV
- Accessorize the dresser
- Paint the dresser
Wowza! That is quite the list and we only have a little over 2 weeks to complete it! I bet you are wondering how we are going to pull this off with only $100. Well, to be honest, our budget will probably be eaten up by the purchase of lamps. Then we will have to shop our home for accessories, DIY a headboard, and use paint we already own to makeover the doors/dresser. Wish us luck!!!
