I introduced you to the concept of the $100 room challenge a couple weeks ago. You can read all about my project room here, (LINK) and see all the bland before pictures. This week in bringing it all together, I had to get creative! I was out of money but still needed to tackle artwork and other decor elements.
A search around my home and some switching up of furniture completed this space right on time!
You may remember this space has 3 doorways and the entrance, so it opens up right to the rest of the home with only corner nooks for tables and lighting.
To the right of the front door, I have my thrifted chair which I reupholstered (LINK) and some hooks which were already there. This is the perfect spot to put on shoes or hang a purse or coat. Above the chair, I hung 2 vintage pieces of art which I pulled one from the kitchen and one from my family room.
To the left of the front door, I placed my fiddle leaf fig tree which fills up the corner nicely. Above it, I hung three vintage plates which are part of vintage dish sets I own. To the right of those, a couple more hooks for hanging coats/ purses.
Following around the left to the next corner, I moved a round vintage table from my front room to fill the corner and put four pieces of chinoiserie from my growing collection on display.
A vintage brass mirror I snagged from my dining room hangs above the table and gives you a place to quickly check hair or makeup as you're heading out the door.
In the last corner, I kept the same green table. You can see how I updated this one many years ago, by clicking on this post here (LINK). On top, is a thrifted lamp I had stored in the basement along with several decor pieces and a letter holder for outgoing mail. Above it, I displayed pieces of art which I grabbed from a gallery wall in another room.
The stenciled wall treatment (LINK) and the new rug (LINK), both add the style touches I wanted to create a unique and welcoming space. I now feel like my entryway is it's own room and not just an extension of the other spaces.
This was such a fun makeover! I loved the challenge of creating a space on a budget. It really forced me to consider carefully the choices I made and repurpose a whole lot of what I already had!
