Basement Guestroom Update | $100 Room Challenge Week 3

Progress has been made and very little money has been spent. Both are key for this $100 Room Challenge given that the Reveal is next week already! If you’re popping in today for the first time, then I’ll tell you that I decided to jump in and give our Basement Guestroom a quick and inexpensive makeover this month. The space is one of those rooms in the house that was clean and livable, but was pretty boring and not all that “guest-worthy” if you know what I mean! Come take a look and see my Basement Guestroom Update for Week 3 of the $100 Room Challenge!

My apologies, but I’m only going to give you a few teasers…

The dresser is fully painted with new knobs on!

And I decided to go big and hang a bold and fun gallery wall around the TV and dresser!

The land of Etsy is a land that I keep getting sucked into, but have found some of the coolest printable art while in it! I’ll be sharing the pieces that I end up putting on the wall next week, because, well, I’ve already switched out a couple since taking these pictures. Plus you’ll notice a few frames are empty! I’ll share the digital art prints with you next week once my indecisiveness has subsided 😉
