For the $100 Room Challenge, see the transformation of a tween’s bedroom with the addition of a reading nook, a nice desk area, and a beautiful headboard and much more!
This is my second time in the $100 Room Challenge. This is a challenge initiated by Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry where everyone has to complete the renovation of a room, in 1 month and investing a maximum of $100.
Note here that $100 is written with a dollar sign in front of the 100. 😛 Which means that for me, the poor Canadian girl, it will be 125 $ !! I could always try to make it with 100 $ CAD, but the experience of the last challenge, when I updated my bathroom, showed that I didn’t have too much money by making the conversion !!!
If you want to skip ahead :
My daughter’s room
We moved into this house 2 years ago and I never completely finished her room. You surely know how you can easily be overwhelmed by the events when you move into a new house!!
My daughter still loves the colours of her room and wants to keep her bedspread.
Here is the existing layout of the furniture in the room.
The identified problems
The headboard lacks interest and is missing a focal point. I’ve been wanting to fix it for a long time, but never got to it. And what about the pendant lamp … I’ll have to see if I have time and budget left!
Her desk is huge, but that doesn’t mean there’s room on it. Looks like the more space we have, the more piles we make !!
There is organizing to do, that’s for sure. Particularly in all these small storage cubes.
And what about this corner? Another good place to stack piles!!
Lots of organizing to do!
I think this is the most organized corner!!!
After looking at different possibilities, I opted for this room layout:
With this layout, I’ll be able to:
- Create a smaller work area, but with an efficient and practical storage wall;
- Make a reading nook near the window;
- Decorate the wall above the headboard.

- Week 1: Organizing, decluttering, rearranging furniture (cutting the work table) and beginning construction of the reading nook;
- Week 2: Complete the construction of the corner nook and painting;
- Week 3: Make the office corner and the wall above the headboard;
- Week 4: Reveal!
There will probably be plenty of small projects published along the way that will serve as storage and decoration in the room. This will be a busy month (especially if you’ve seen my “About me” page, you know I also have a full-time job!)
If you like it, don’t forget to Pin it and follow along for the rest of the month!
