I know, I know…I’m crazy town for doing two makeovers at once, but what is a new year for? Challenge accepted! In addition to working on my chinoiserie office, I’m also taking on the $100 Room Makeover Challenge hosted by Lemons, Lavender & Laundry.
I participated in this challenge last year when we were still in our apartment, and I did our dining space. People loved the outcome, and to this day it is still one of my fave makeovers I’ve ever done.
This year, I’ve decided to work on our dining space again because it has been severely neglected since we moved in back in September 2017. And after Christmas, it looked really sad.
My darling husband bought me a gorgeous bird botanical art print from HomeGoods for Christmas, so I’m using that as the inspiration for my $100 room makeover. The gold frame is so beautiful, and I really wanted a botanical vibe in this space.
Here’s the view from the living room as of yesterday. One ghost chair is in my office since I still haven’t chosen a proper office chair.
That stool is a thrift store find that I want to upcycle by reupholstering the seat and painting the legs.
And you’ll likely notice I only have sheers in the space right now rather than the black and white striped curtains I wrote about awhile ago…well… Pee Wee peed on one, we tried to get it cleaned, the panel shrunk, so here we are.
I have a lot of bare walls and floor to work with, plus I have a ton of decor already, so I plan to “shop my house” and make some thrifty purchases to add some style and warmth to the space.
Here’s the plan:

My To-Do List for the $100 Room Makeover Challenge:
- Dig out a rug from storage to use in the space
- Buy fabric to reupholster the ottoman and use spray paint I have for the legs
- Print free audubon prints and use some frames I have on hand to create a gallery wall
- Buy a replacement curtain panel
- Add in some plants
- Set a gorgeous table
- Add in a few throw pillows to the small love seat bench area
This makeover likely won’t be super dramatic, but I do hope to add some pizazz to the space, and if nothing else, it won’t look so bare.
