Room Reveal ($100 Room Challenge)

When you are in the midst of life and crazy projects, the time seems to slip away entirely too quickly.  I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in the $100 Room Challenge this past month. It is nice to finally be back at sharing little pieces of our life as we tackle minor projects throughout our home. If you haven't followed along the whole month, you can see how our room began the transformation here
BEFORE...


AFTER.... 
  • painting the walls
  • painting the doors 
  • hanging faux brick behind the bed
  • texturing the brick wall
  • finding a few matching decor for above the nightstands
  • Cleaning out and reorganizing the closet
  • Finding a cool curtain rod and rehanging curtains
  • and re-Decorating
I LOVE the black doors! I actually painted all 3 doors in this hallway black and it changed the entire look of the back entryway. I shopped our home and replaced the brown anise seed wreath with the cotton wreath to allow a bit of a pop against the dark door. The chalkboard is made from several pieces of thin old oak that my husband had leftover from my pantry barn door. And, yes, since we are officially into pumpkin season, I had to scatter a bit of Fall decor into the room. 😍
The white walls certainly aid in the brightness and clean look to the room now. I feel bright and cheerful every time I step foot in here now. My dresser has definitely seen better days, but it holds a bit of sentimental value and definite fun memories in the thrift shopping world. I hung the pallet piece and moved our picture to this spot. I used an old jute rug to cover the top of the dresser to give it some texture. The rusty tool box holds my bracelets and the fake phone was moved from another area in the room.

The faux brick wall was my favorite project in this makeover. What a completely different look. I used the same huge wall piece that I had before, because I love it! I wanted two smaller matching pieces for above the nightstands, so I shopped the house and found these two window boxes. I found them a few months back at an antique store for 50 cents each. The greenery was in my decor stash.

Eventually I'd love to find 2 pretty new industrial looking lamps to go on our nightstands, but budget didn't allow this go around. And, I figured I needed to leave those on my Christmas wish list.

I found an old, cool curtain rod in our garage that we had moved here from our old house. Thankfully I had the hardware in my stash so I didn't have to spend any money on this minor project. I already had oil rub bronze spray paint, so gave it a quick coat to make it look like new.


Our closet needed a bit of cleaning up too, but a few minor changes made it an easy fix. It serves as our Christmas present, gun accessories, and hunting paraphernalia storage too, because I hate stuff under the beds. I moved the little shelf for my shoes into the right side and it fit perfectly.
