Hey guys, so we’re making slow progress in the $100 Room Challenge- specifically, I finally figured out the closet design plans 🙌

So a big part of the plans is to stay within budget by using as many leftover paints and supplies as possible, so I knew I’d be using mostly white, pink, and blues, since that’s what I’ve used lately. I settled on pink (Ballet Slipper by Valspar) for the trim, a dark blue (Deep Twilight Blue, Valspar) for the ceiling, and The Perfect White (Valspar) for the walls. I’m also going to use Schoolboy Blue for the doors (the same blue that is on the dresser).
Here’s how the Ballet Slipper and Deep Twilight Blue look in our living room ceiling and walls:
I’ve also decided to paint the shoe shelf white, and- remember the pink buffalo check fabric I used in the mudroom?
I’m going to line the back of the shelf with what I have left of that fabric. It’s going to be so.stinkin’.cute.
I’ve also figured out what to do with the wire shelves, and I’m hoping to get that taken care of this weekend…maybe?
Here’s the latest layout:
Also, I’m going to paint really thin stripes on the globes on the lights. It should provide a cute little punch in this space!
All that I got done this week, besides finalize the plans, was painting the pink trim. That paint had only been stored for a couple of months, but holy cow did the fumes overwhelm me! I could only stand being in the closet for an hour or so, and haven’t really been able to go back in there since I painted it. Those fumes were more like epoxy fumes. It was awful.
So now I’m a little bit behind, but it’s okay. Here’s what left to do:
Repair and paint dressers
- Paint walls, ceilings, and
- Buy matching hangers
Add a shelf above the dresser on my side of the closet.Not needed anymore with the change in design! Move linens to the closet in my oldest son’s room(which means I have to tackle that closet as well). I’ve moved the linens but still need to tackle his closet.
- Update the lighting
- Cover the wire shelves (I have an idea for this)
- Organize my jewelry
- Do something to make this space pretty
- paint shoe shelf and line back with fabric
Yikes, I guess I only marked one thing off and added a couple 🤦♀️ But on the plus side, I still have my entire $100 budget left!
Two more weeks to go!
