Upcoming Challenge | New Year, New Style ~ Decorating on a Budget.

I’m excited to announce that I will be working on a new blogger challenge called New Year, New Style: Decorating on a Budget. I’ve been challenged to pick a room or space in my home and give it a whole new look using just $150. After contemplating it for a day, my husband and I decided that we would use the $150 to redecorate my daughter’s room.

Ever since we’ve been married, we’ve lived in apartments. For what we have paid in rent, we sure do not get a lot of space, and I think other apartment living couples or families will certainly relate. Currently we’re living in a 3-bedroom townhouse and though it has more space than the past two apartments we’ve lived in, we have to get creative on how to store what we own.

Having a child increases all of the things that we have in our home. Birthday gifts and Christmas presents always bring in a flood of new toys and clothes for Zoe, which have now taken up space in every room in our town house. Our next move will be more permanent and hopefully into a house, where we’ll have more room and a larger budget to use for decorating and organizing.

But in the mean time, we are going to make use of the space that we have, and make a safer and more enjoyable room for our daughter to play in and sleep in.

Thank you to Apartment Guide for this incredible opportunity, and for providing all the teaching tools that anyone can use to decorate small spaces on even the tiniest of budgets.
