$100 Room Challenge | Week 1: The Shed Interior Befores

Wait, is it September already? It seems like January was simultaneously yesterday and 10 years ago. I'm not sure if the time warp is because of being first time parents or from all the craziness going on in the world right now. Either way, I need a outlet to focus my creative juices on. The $100 Room Challenge fall round came at the perfect time. Last year I focused on the exterior of the backyard shed, because I was 6 weeks pregnant I didn't get to the interior so I'm taking it on this year!

Woah back up, what is the $100RC? Basically we have $100 and one month to transform an entire space. Erin from Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry created the challenge in September 2015, meaning this is the 5th anniversary! My very first challenge was in July 2017 and I've participated ever since then (dang that's 7 times!), that's how much I love this group.

Flash back to three years ago when we moved in and this backyard shed scene was very different. It was covered in garbage and inches of sand and leaves and we hadn't cut down the two massive trees that were blocking all of the sun.

Inside it is just basic plywood. Randomly spaced nails line the back wall and there are two small shelves on either side. Surprisingly the electrical still works! 

My plan is to go fully white! Since it is such a small and dingy space I'd like to brighten it up and add lots of storage. Initially my thought is to add a pegboard along the back wall to accommodate all of our yard tools and hanging things.

I've gotten a white interior inspiration from this picture and this one. One is a little warmer than the other so I do have to decide on the undertone I want to go with.


This pegboard gave me some inspiration to do a whole wall and this one has some shelf inspo. The common theme is to make an airy and organized space to store all our stuff. 


This September we have 5 Wednesdays so we get an extra week to work! This next week I plan to clean everything out and prep it for paint. Just by glancing around I can see a majority of work will be getting the one thousand nails out, but I think I can get that done in one nap.

Wish us luck! And be sure to follow me on Instagram, I share a majority of my daily progress in my Stories. Below you can catch all the other participants, the list grows every year!
