$100 Room Challenge | Week 3: Empty Closet (and I Picked a Paint!)

Not much happened this weekend for the $100 Room Challenge. I was able to clean out all the tools and supplies, which is way more than I thought it would be, and find some paint to use on the walls. Let's jump in to the extremely short and unsatisfying post.

January Cure | Week 2

I'll be honest, week 2 of the January Cure was harder than the first week. I don't know if it was because there were 5 days instead of 2 or if the tasks were a little more intensive. But sitting here on Sunday night, I am so glad I did it. My living room is clean, my closet feels better, and my kitchen is ready to take on the week.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 2: The Plans

Week 2 during almost any challenge for me is planning week and this week of the $100 Room Challenge is no different. I've never built anything specifically for tools so I have been brainstorimg and dreaming all week long about what my dream tool closet would look like. Some of those ideas were outrageous for the actual space, but I did come out with a few good ones. If you're not familiar with the $100 Room Challenge, be sure to check out Erin's website.

January Cure | Week 1

January is usually just another month to me. I've never been the one to make new year's resolutions or go on some crazy diet, but this year apparently I feel like putting in more effort. I'm participating in the $100 Room Challenge again (check out our tool closet I'm tackling), Auston are getting up early (instead of going in the evening) to work out, and to top it all off me I'm doing Apartment Therapy's January Cure Challenge.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 1: The Befores

Whew! It's officially 2019. For me January means another $100 Room Challenge. Another month to transform a space for only $100. You already know my love for this challenge and giant admiration for its creator Erin Meyer. So far I've used this challenge to re-do our full bathroom (my favorite room in the house), the hall closet, and the half bath.

This go around I'm taking on our tool closet. It's right across from our full bathroom and you see it as you walk in.  I used to have it completely organized, but lately, as I have accumulated more stuff, it has become an absolute tornado.

One Room Challenge | Week 6: The Master Bedroom Reveal

I hope everyone had a fun and productive One Room Challenge this round! I started out with no direction, made a mood board, and went almost the complete opposite way. It was a big learning experience for me and again I found myself being thankful for such an encouraging community. 6 weeks of crazy running around and making long drives to get products, but sitting in my bed writing this post makes it all worth it. Without further ado, head straight to the good stuff.

One Room Challenge | Week 5: Final Paint Color

Week 5 of the One Room Challenge was a good one. I took a break from social media and man was it refreshing. Last week I was stumped on the paint color for our master walls since I thought I was going to go dark until I actually had dark walls and hated them. Last Thursday the rug finally came in and eased my mind a little. It was so much lighter in person than on AllModern and I could hold it up to all my new swatches to see how they would compliment each other. I painted few dozen mid tone grays, a few lighter grays and didn't love any of them. I sat down to think hard about what color would make the rug and the headboard the stars of the show. It hit me like a ton of bricks - the Spring Makeover Kid's Playroom
