$100 Room Challenge | Week 5: Tool Closet Reveal

This reveal is probably, most likely more satisfying to me than it is to you. After living with a mess for 2 years, I finally have a space I can work from with a clear mind. Don't get me wrong though, I'm still one of those people that can tell you where every single thing is in that mess - but it was not conducive to spurring on my creative juices. If you're this far in and have no idea what I'm talking about, head on over to Erin's site about why she created the $100 Room Challenge. I hate writing intros as much as you hate reading them, so let's do this.

$100 Room Challenge | Week 4: The Shelves are Built!

I know most people I come across hate painting. I absolutely love it. All the prep work, the dry time, I love it all. I love the feeling that I can go to the store and get a $30 can of paint that will completely change a space. To top it off, I didn't have to spend $1 on this paint job. I used the leftover paint from our master bedroom remodel, a custom mix of Behr's Snow Fall.

January Cure | Week 3

I had a three day weekend this week, and an extra long weekend means extra projects to fit into the schedule.This week of the January Cure was filled with cleaning and checking off those small tasks that always get put off.  It's only 3/4th's of the way through the month and I feel like I've already done a million projects - will I be burned out by the end? I guess we'll find out.

$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.
