$100 Room Makeover Challenge

My update is coming at you kind of late because I keep running into road blocks and creative indecision with the space. I started with such a clear vision and now that we’re nearing the end I’m having decision remorse. I’ve never constrained myself to a budget before. I’m actually struggling.

Mirror was taken from another room, lumber is for a DIY console table to add weight and warmth to the end of the hallway.

Both ends are now lit but the lights don't match and I don't love them in this space.

I’m wondering if using this planter basket as a lampshade will give me the feel I’m after.

What have I actually done?

I’ve patched the walls and touched up the white paint. I thought I’d be happy with this since I loved the way the refreshed white paint in the living room turned out. I was wrong. I don’t love it. But I’m not sure I have the time nor budget to do anything about it.

I stole the mirror from my bathroom. The bathroom has loads of good vibes already and I needed to steal a bit of that for this space.

I changed out the light fixture for the rattan one that was in my bedroom. But again, I’m not sure I love it.

Do I love anything yet?

No. I don’t know what is wrong with me 😯

What am I going to do about it?

Keep my fingers crossed. I still need to paint the doors and I hope that brings a more polished and finished vibe to the space.

I also need to pick up an additional piece of lumber to get the console put together and then I’ll paint it. Having a piece of furniture in the space should help bring warmth.

Also, need to get the mirror hung but I want to wait until the console is up so I can make sure it’s hung at an aesthetically pleasing height.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed on my lighting situation for now. Maybe something will pop up last minute. A girl can hope!
