$100 ROOM CHALLENGE - MY LIVING ROOM REVEAL!

$100 Room Challenge Living Room Before and After | www.sprinkledwithcolor.com

The living room is now finished!  I spent basically all my budget from the $100 Room Challenge on a couch which I was lucky enough to find on Craigslist.  It was actually listed for $100 but I was able to negotiate ten dollars off and used that money to rent a pickup truck from Home Depot (which was actually twenty dollars so I am ten dollars over budget - oops!) to carry my new find home.

The rest of the room is furnished from the rest of my home.   We were lucky to start with a blank space since we just moved into this house, which always makes it nice when designing a new room.

My favorite part of the challenge was filling in the space on the shelves.  Finding ways to keep the items balanced and simple was definitely a challenge.  I posted some tips in my previous post on styling bookshelves.

Am I crazy to think about the next phase to update the room???  I would love to put a rug in to soften up the room and replace the artwork over the mantel with a mirror.  the blank wall behind the piano could also benefit with artwork as well.   One can always dream right =)?  But overall, I am very happy with how the room turned out!

Here is one last before and after of the room.

  2. Wow, it looks so inviting now! I know what you mean about immediately starting to think about the next phase of a project, even as you're finishing the first phase. Love the bookshelf styling, and now I'm having piano envy...
