I can’t believe I’m actually writing this post. Up until about 48 hours ago, I thought I’d be writing a big, sad apology for not completing my craft and sewing space makeover in time. But hey look! Thanks to some major butt-kicking (and a whole lot of help from my amazing family), the craft and sewing area is DONE like dinner. Proof positive that DIY home decor (even on a $100 budget) is the BEST kind of decor.
If you’ve been following along since week 1 of the challenge… well, you’re awesome! Thank you so much for seeing it through to the end with me. I am absolutely THRILLED with how this space has turned out and I cannot wait to show you all the pretty pretty details. If you missed a few posts along the way, you can catch up on week 2 here and week 3 here!
Drum roll, please! *brrrrrrrrrr…………………………………* (Bonus points if you made the sound out loud. One MILLION points if you did an air drum roll.)

I had every intention of showing you an almost-finished craft & sewing space this week. I really did! The spirit was willing, but the procrastination was stronger. “Sarah: you titled this post ‘Progress’!” Well, the answer is that I actually did make progress in my $100 craft & sewing room makeover this week; it just all happened in the last 24 hours.
We’ve been enjoying the most wonderful week-long visit from two extremely dear friends, so I’ve been completely distracted by that. I won’t apologize, though, because no blog project is more important than spending time with the people you love! I will say that I need to light a fire under myself in the coming days, though. 🙂
If you’re just catching up, I’ve been making over my craft & sewing space on a $100 budget as part of the $100 Room Challenge, hosted by Erin at Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry. Erin has gathered up a wonderfully talented and resourceful group of bloggers to participate in the challenge: be sure to check out everyone’s week 3 progress at the end of this post! You can catch up on my Week 1 and Week 2 posts, as well.
So here’s what I accomplished in between socializing, drinking coffee, laughing so hard my sides hurt, taking care of two super-cute babies, and cooking delicious food…

Lists have been written and re-written. Mounds and mounds of paper and ribbon and fabric and paint have been sorted. Bins have been emptied and re-filled. Pinterest has been surfed. Plans have been made! My craft & sewing room makeover has begun in earnest as part of the $100 Room Challenge, and I am so excited to share my progress with you.
When we left off last week, I had shared the gory “BEFORE” details with you and filled you in on my general inspiration (Mexican folk art; bright colours; navy, fuschia, goldenrod palette; lots and lots of storage). I also introduced you to the $100 Room Challenge itself: a month-long decorating challenge hosted by Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry

As you no doubt gathered from the title of this post, I have $100 to work with for this space, so a lot of what I’m doing involves shopping my supplies (or my parents’ supplies!), rather than buying new. The paint is left over from our Harry Potter nursery, the furniture is all stuff we already own, and I am shopping our house for art.
