ONE ROOM CHALLENGE, WEEK TWO – MY PLAN AND BUDGET

Here is the plan, y’all:

Per the advice of the amazing Sunny Goode (see post here), I am using Benjamin Moore Fanfare in the bedroom on the walls AND ceiling.  I am going to use that simple Target desk above as my vanity (I like that I can repurpose it later as a true desk or console and it’s not a “vanity only” purchase).  I would love a fun vanity stool.  I may try to save myself some pennies and find one at a thrift store to repurpose.  I am going to bring some texture to the room with the seagrass rug and the sheepskin hides on either side of the bed and the woven shades on the windows.  I love the simplicity of the white panels.  I have considered trying an ink block stamping in silver or gold to fancy them up, kind of like this:

I am going to try my best to use what I have to complete this makeover.  We bought the paint a while back, and I have white bedding.  I am going to repurpose some lamps, mirrors and frames and attempt some DIY art.  Here is my wish list and budget for new purchases:

  1. Target Hamilton Desk.  $129.99
  2. 9×12 Seagrass Rug. ~$300
  3. One more 2×3 sheepskin rug. ~$30, but going to stalk HomeGoods for a $19.99 one like the one we already have.
  4.  Vanity Stool.  $179 (but hoping to DIY or repurpose)
  5. 2 Bamboo Roll Up Shades.  $55 x 2 = $110
  6. 2 White Panel Curtains.  $50 x 2 = $100

TOTAL BUDGET: ~$850 

Below is the latest progress — it’s not much, but can you see it?  Matt fixed a big crack down the middle of the ceiling in preparation for paint.  This is happening, people!

What do you think of the plan?  Can I do it for $850?
