Great Idea from My Reader

I was given a great idea from one of my readers, Mikelle at http://maumanwilliams.blogspot.com/, to challenge my readers to the same challenge I have made for myself. Remake a room in your home for $200.00 or less. Are you up for the challenge?!? So here are the rules I gave myself. Remake one room in your home. You may purchase anything for the room, not to exceed $200.00 total. You may use anything you already own in your home (as long as you aren’t making the room you take it from ugly, because that would defeat the point – DON’T CHEAT, HONOR CODE). So those are your rules too. Send me your pics and explain your process, by August 24th. I will choose my pics for top three “before and afters”. Then we will put it to a vote. Who will be the winner? It is anyone’s game. Good luck, and let the creativity begin!

    What a cool idea! I would like to participate- I’m nervous though! All the rooms in my house are out of control with kids stuff… Maybe do a small room? Like the bathroom? Would that count??

      Totally!! The bathroom would totally count. I love a bathroom redo!

    This is a really good idea! I am working on several rooms right now – I need to pick one and finish it so I can enter!
