Many times I am scrolling through Pinterest, or flipping through a magazine, and see absolutely gorgeous photos of kitchens, bedrooms, and pantries. I look longingly at these images knowing I don’t have hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to spend renovating my home to create these looks for myself… nor do I have a professional photographer and a team of designers 🙂
Then one day it hit me…
I might not be able to afford my dream kitchen, but I can certainly make the spaces around my home better; not “magazine-photo-shoot-ready”, but more organized and brighter/happier. I would need to get creative, and spend money wisely, but I thought about all the things I could do for a mere $100, and I started to get excited…
I decided to start a series…
In September 2015, I decided to share this journey, and the $100 Room Challenge was born. Beginning the first Wednesday of each month, I give myself 1 month and $100 to make-over a space in my home. My hope is that you will find some inspiration, and realize that, even if you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend, you can still create a beautiful space.
Wanna Join The $100 Room Challenge?
If you are a blogger, and think this would be a fun challenge to take on, I would love to see if we could collaborate in some way. If you are interested, please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to try this challenge for yourself, I would LOVE to see what you come up with. Please email me your before and after pictures at email@example.com or use the hashtag #100RoomChallenge on Twitter or Instagram.

Currently Working On:
The month of January is pretty fun for this $100 Room Challenge. It’s not just me working on a space for $100; I decided to bring along some friends to join me. Clicking on the image below will take you to the first post for this month’s $100 Room Challenge, and at the bottom are links so you can see how others use $100 to transform their own spaces.
Here are the spaces I have completed. Click on the image and it will take you to the reveal:
