Refreshing the Carport Pit for $50

Last fall I participated in my second $100 Room Challenge where I renovated our carport. For some reason our driveway  has a square piece of uncovered ground right next to a downspout. Before the complete landscaping renovation it was overrun with weeds and thorns. But I still didn't get a few things right the first go around so I wanted to give it a refresh. If you've been following along with my InstaStories you've seen all the behind the scenes during this project. If you missed it, you can catch them all on my highlighted "Carport" stories.

Disguising the Guest Room Shoe Rack with Paint

The guest room doubles as my closet and vanity. We have small closets and having a dedicated desk where I can get ready is really helpful. The downside is I also have to store all my shoes on an ugly pre-fab shoe rack in there.

Installing Feet on the Couch

Thanks for welcoming me back from my blogging (and social media) hiatus, it's amazing what some time off to focus on yourself can do.

I'm 99% sure everyone has those tiny tasks you just can't seem to take the time out of your day to do it. It's not that it would cost a fortune or even take that much time, but it just sits there and sits there, un-tackled. For us, that was the replacement feet for our love seat. When the couch got moved from Atlanta to this house the feet got lost and we have lived with it sitting right on the floor for 2. YEARS. You might not think couch feet would make that big of a difference both sitting on it or looking at it - but it does.

Phew! That's how I feel after 6 weeks of procrastination and spring through the last 7 days. The One Room Challenge has come to an end for the guest room makeover.

BUT we got it done and Auston can barely peel me out of this space.  If this is your first time here, you can check the past 5 weeks posts below (Week 1 is really the best).

One Room Challenge | Week 5: Vertical Board & Batten

Reveals out the wazoo this month! Between last week's closet reveal, this week's playroom reveal, and next week's One Room Challenge reveal, I am going to be having some celebratory drinks after it's all over. It's week 5 and crunch time! Everyone is wrapping up their spaces and per my M.O. I still have large chunks to complete and shopping to do.

You can visit all the One Room Challenge guest room posts below. This space has already come so far and this next week is going to be fun.

Low-Budget Kids Playroom Makeover

Last week we revealed the closet makeover we tackled in 24 hours, and you guys were so encouraging. It was our first spring makeover and our first time renovating someone else's space. I started planning the space #2 for our Spring Makeovers as soon as I saw the before picture back in February! This kid's playroom was just begging to be transformed into a space for this baby girl where she could grow and foster her imagination. It also gave me an excuse to play with using colors, since I tend to be drawn more towards neutrals. Although, I still chose white walls as the perfect canvas to display toys, books, and can grow with her. With a $150 budget goal, we started to get to work!

New Farm Table for the Dining Room

We hardly eat at our dining room table. We're either on different lunch hours or just plop in front of the tv for dinner to watch the Office. Partly because it's just us two, but mostly because the table is usually covered with stuff. And since it is so small, it doesn't take much to  cover it up! But this weekend, we moved in a big, beautiful farm table.
