Hey friends! It’s time for the $100 Room Challenge Reveal! Over the course of this month I joined a bunch of bloggers to makeover spaces for $100 or less. I decided to makeover our daughter’s walk in closet into a bright and fun modern girls closet. Here is where we started:
It’s embarrassing. Total disaster. She had a beautiful bedroom and a totally junky closet. I started by just removing all the clothes that were too big and too small. Relocating things like my scrapbook collection (why was this here anyways?!?) and painting the walls. Because I only had $100 to work with it was TIGHT.
To replace the individual light bulb I found this Crystal Light on an Amazon Warehouse Deal for $21 and spray painted it gold. I feel like it adds just the right amount of girly glam.
The wallpaper is just cutout remnants from when I wallpapered her bedroom.I added a larger more functional mirror, eating up $14 of my small budget. It’s worth it though watching her check herself out in it daily! I also added these Brass Hooks from Target, giving her a place to hang her bags and towel.
Using some clothespins, epoxy, and a piece of scrap wood I created this headband organizer for less than $2. I love that now we can see all of her headbands on display.
The little shelf is just an Ikea Spice rack that I had on hand. I didn’t use the bar that’s supposed to go across the front so that I could fit her lotion and hair products up here. These are used daily so it’s nice to have easy access.The new dresser is the real show stopper in here. I shared an entire post about it here. It was a $30 thrifted score that I painted with Amy Howard One Step Paint. I also spent $12 on some new drawer pulls for the dresser.
By removing some of the extra shelves this also gave us a space to store her dollhouse up and off the floor. This frequently gets brought out into her room to play with, but fits nicely here at the end of the day.
I wanted to buy these bright blue bins for storage, but they were out of my budget and ended up being too tall for the top shelf. Instead I just used these green baskets that I had on hand.
I’m so sorry for the terrible grainy photos. It turns out that photographing a small dark space is a real feat! Between trying to get a decent angle and enough light it was a real struggle!
When you count the $13 that I spent on her closet knob, I ended up spending $108 on this makeover. Honestly I’m impressed that I was able to stay so close to the budget! By having the pink paint, wallpaper remnants, and gold spray paint on hand I was able to save quite a bit. I love that now her closet fits with the rest of her bedroom!
Just for good measure, here is a reminder of the pathetic “before” and bright and fun “after”.
