How The Challenge Started…
I used to scroll through Pinterest, or flip through magazines, and see absolutely gorgeous photos of kitchens, bedrooms, and pantries. I’d look longingly at these images knowing I didn’t have hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to spend renovating my home to create these looks for myself… nor did 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 more “me”. 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 gave 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.
Growth Beyond Measure
As of September 2017, two years after this challenge started, there have been 80 makeovers done with a budget of $100 or less:
- 25 Bathrooms
- 15 Bedrooms
- 8 Hallways/Entries
- 7 Closets
- 6 Laundry Rooms
- 5 Dining Rooms
- 4 Craft Rooms
- 4 Living Rooms
- 2 Family Rooms
- 2 Pantries
- and 2 Sunrooms/Porches
