$100 Room Challenge: Linen Closet Makeover Week 1
Welcome yall to our first $100 Room Challenge! If you have followed along this little blog for anytime at all you know we love a good room renovation challenge over here at the Southern Yankee DIY house. So when I heard about Erin’s $100 Room Challenge I was super excited!
Erin from Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry started this challenge a couple of years ago (you can read more about that here). Basically a bunch of very talented bloggers get together to take on renovating a space for $100 or less! We have 1 month to complete the challenge & the hope is to have a swoon worthy room at the end, all while staying in budget.
Her linen closet makeover is so pretty & organized! I am hoping to accomplish the same organized look in our disaster of a closet!
Here is what we are working with:
Yes it is a disaster & I should be embarresed to show yall but I’m not because this is real life. I wanted to take on this little closet as part of my January deep clean project anyways, so this is perfect timing!
- Paint the closet- I’m thinking about using Sherwin Williams Pure White to give the space a bright & clean look, plus I have some left over from another project so I mine as well use what I got
- Add custom shelving- I am going to add some shelving similar to what I added during my coat closet makeover
- Find budget savvy storage containers & bins for all the linens- This is probably where the majority of my budget will be spent
- Add custom labels to my storage bins- I recently got a Cricut for my birthday so if it can be labeled it will be labeled because I am obsessed
So that’s the plan! Now all that’s left is to complete the project by the end of January under a $100 budget… no sweat! Nothing like a little extra pressure to help you get motivated to complete a project!
