$100 Challenge: Hallway Makeover Final Reveal

Hello and welcome to the finale of the $100 Room Challenge! We have been making over our hallway in only 1 month for only $100 and I am so excited to reveal the results to you today.

Week 1: the design plan

Week 2: how to save $$$ on house paint

Bonus: our beadboard ceilings

Week 3: iron balusters 

$100 Challenge: Hallway Makeover Final Reveal

I am so pleased with how it turned out, and I feel really embarrassed that we left this space incomplete for so long. I love this link up because it is such a reminder that it doesn’t take a ton of money or a lot of time to make a big impact on your home.

Also, you might notice that I did not do the DIY bubble chandelier. We ran out of budget. I actually have 15 small plastic, 1 large glass, and 24 small glass ornaments on hand (from back last Christmas when I got the idea to make and sell ornaments… on December 15th) but I felt rather cheat-y using quite so much stuff that I already have on hand. I really wanted this to be a realistic budget makeover. So, stay tuned and maybe the bubble chandelier will come at you at a later date.

I can reiterate that the only reason that we were able to stay under the $100 budget was by buying in bulk always and having a lot of things – mostly paint, stain, sealant, and things like nails, on hand already.
