I think a lot of us feel like we can’t have a beautiful home that we love because there just isn’t enough money. I know I have definitely felt that way plenty of times. And in all honesty, having an endless budget to spend on decorating your home probably would make things much faster and easier.
But that doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money to create a fabulous space for you and your family.
Over the last few years, I’ve discovered just how far a tiny budget can go. And not only that, I’ve realized that a lot of times having less money to spend makes me get way more creative and I love the finished space so, so much more than if I just bought all the things I wanted from HomeGoods!
I can’t think of any better way to celebrate how fabulous a space can be on a tiny budget than to share some of my favorite $100 room makeovers from fellow bloggers. Erin from the blog Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry came up with the idea of the $100 room challenge.
It is a challenge to make over one space in your home in only one month with a $100 budget. It’s a crazy tough challenge but, oh my goodness, people get so creative and some of the transformations are incredible!
I’ve tackled 4 $100 room challenges myself: our main bathroom, our small master bathroom, our family room, and our basement gym.
And below you’ll find my absolute favorite makeovers from some of the other bloggers who participated in the challenge this time around. You can find lots more info including before pictures, budget breakdowns, and DIY tutorials at the links below each picture. Enjoy!

I want to know how can I set my home it’s very messy n I’m tired of making it clean n perfect home me n husband fight daily on the messy house n now I surrender
First, let me say my home is definitely not always clean either. I have three kids and on a normal day, there are lots of messes. My husband and I have our fair share of fights over house cleaning as well so I can relate. What has helped us is sitting down and deciding which cleaning jobs we will each be in charge of. Then we are each responsible for our own jobs and not nagging one another all the time. He does dishes, I do laundry, etc. I also really like the Busy Budgeter’s method for getting your house under control if you don’t love cleaning and organizing. She talks about it here and also has a free guide there that might help: https://www.busybudgeter.com/simple-home-management-system-less-time-better-results/ Good luck!
