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