from hoarder to gallery wall week 3 update $100 room challenge

It’s awesome how a challenge totally inspires me.  I have gone from hoarder to gallery wall I love all due to, the $100 room challenge.  I’m doing my entry hallway {week 1 & 2 update} and I told you all how I decided to turn the nook under the stairs.  To my crafty closet.  I added some thrifty drapes for the amaze balls price of $10.  So with still $90 to spend I thought how am I going to make this hallway more interesting.

Well at the same time I’ve been working with another group on FB called crafty destash.  Which wants you to use what you already have.  Well when I looked threw the remains for my craft room.  My additions to frames was glaring back at me.  Do something they whispered kinda loudly!


from hoarder to gallery wall

Can you believe it?  It is very me.  It’s bit’s and pieces left over from previous projects.  All pulled together now into what I think to be a glorious gallery wall.  I loved all the memories of each project that came flying back to me while putting this wall together.  I love seeing the potential I once saw in these frames come to life.

Let me show you some more.


The only investment on this side of the wall I made was the door hole cover.  I paid $1.98 for it.  I really really wanted to add some glittery red lips to this wall which I am on the look out for.  Funny how when your not looking for something you see it every where.  When you decide you want it you can’t find it no where.

I love how the little pallets project came together and you can see more details on it in my crafty destash frames post.  Be sure and check it out.  It’s really where I got the idea for this gallery wall.  The fact I got to use it for this $100 room challenge is double win.  Like the universe is working with me.  😉

I had used Modern Masters last year to paint my front door.  Love how it’s holding up.

Oops just realized that little flower in the candle holder over the mine sign was 99 cent purchase for this wall.  That brings to total spent $2.97.  Adding in the $10 curtains from last week that leaves me with $87 to spend.

It totally screamed to me at the store.  I belong to you.

Come back next week see how this all ends up.  Last major challenge the floor.

    This is the kind of gallery wall that visitors will stand and gaze at for a long time and always remember your home. The wall is very cool Anj.

    Amazing. That’s the best hoarding I’ve ever seen. And I’m glad you made it so that it is very you. With so many copycat rooms out there, it is refreshing to see your wonderful personality shining through. Great job.
