$100 room challenge update–painted furniture + painted trim + lots of tidying

Just a quick update on the $100 room challenge…   So we are at week 2 and this week my my nieces, little girl and I went through all the drawers/shelves/toys/closet and purged and reorganized.  Felt so good to throw away several bags of trash and have a huge bin for Goodwill and a few things to sell at a future yard sale.  So here’s what the room looked like after purging (or is “tidying” the word to use now??) 🙂

And then I tackled painting all the trim, the attic doors, stair railing and trim  – this door looks so much better now that it’s painted white!  Seriously made a huge difference in way room looks.  I just used my trim paint which is Behr Polar Bear in semi-gloss.

I also touched up paint on all the furniture and did a clear coat on them.  I get so impatient with giving a piece a makeover and when it’s done I want to rush to put in the room that sometimes I skip the clear coat and then regret that several months later.  So I touched up the chalk paint on this desk and then did a clear coat on the whole thing.

Also touched up paint on this dresser – the top was horrible!  And then did a clear coat on the whole thing – I only use polycrylic on white painted furniture so it won’t yellow over time.

So lots of painting happened this past week!  Next on the agenda is the 18 inch dollhouse dilemma.  If you watch my Instagram stories you may have caught a hint of what I plan on doing to solve that situation.  I am super excited to get to work on it and show you!  Make sure to check Instagram stories this weekend because I am hoping the rain will hold off and I can get a lot accomplished on and I will take you along with me on the process!

Total cost – still $0 – had all paint and clear coat on hand
