For week 4 of the $100 Room Challenge, I found the perfect new white bedding to help me pull this guest room makeover together!
Hey friends! Week 4 of the $100 Room Challenge got away from me to quickly! As you probably know by now, I am working on a guest bedroom makeover. And I am happy to announce that we had our first official guest stay in our new guest room over the past weekend, and she loved it! But having her here for the weekend put me behind on getting this blog post written, so I am posting two days late. and I can’t believe that next Wednesday it will already be time for the big reveal of this room. Today, I wanted to share our new white bedding that I chose for this room.
What’s The $100 Room Challenge?
Let me start by thanking Erin over at Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry for being our lovely host, and this whole challenge was her brain child. If you are new to the $100 Room Challenge you can read more about it here. But the basic premise for the challenge is this: you get one month, and $100, to completely makeover one space in your home. I know what you may be thinking… $100 is not a lot of money. Just wait. What you can do with $100 (and a little creativity) will absolutely blow your mind. And if you don’t believe me, just follow along, and click through and see what the other participants are doing for this challenge, and you will see so many great things happening with just a $100 budget. This is my third time joining the challenge, and I am always so glad I did in the end!

New White Bedding
I wanted to stay in the white family for the walls, the curtains, and the bedding. I even painted an old vintage steamer trunk white for this space. I happened to find my bedding at HomeGoods, but I found one that looks exactly like it on Amazon for you, just in case you are in the market for bedding that has this same look. I absolutely love this bedding! I love the double layers of white ruffles around the edges of the comforter and the pillow cases. And I also love that it has a shabby chic look and is sort of wrinkly looking.
I brought in this little Llama pillow to add to the look, but truth be told, I stole it from my daughter’s bed because I thought it looked cute here. Well, let’s just say I borrowed it, not stole it, Ha! But I do have to give it back to her eventually. I found this Llama pillow at Hobby Lobby. And I love the cute pom poms on the corners.
Adding Layers to Your Bedding
I thought it might be helpful for me to explain how I achieved this look with the bedding. I layered on some vintage and thrifted items that I already had to get this look. I started with some fresh white sheets, which I already owned. Then I added a pale pink ruffled quilt that I had thrifted from Goodwill years ago. On top of that, I added a vintage chenille bedspread that belonged to my husband’s grandmother and was passed down to us. I wanted to use the chenille bedspread because it has pretty white fringe all along the bottom, and I thought that would add another special little touch to the look of the bed when it is all made up.I folded down the chenille bedspread so that the quilt is still visible, because I wanted to bring that pale pink color to the space.
There are 4 full size pillows on the bed. The two in the back are just covered with white pillow cases that match the sheets, and then the two on top are the shams that came with the bedding. The small white ruffle pillow also came with the bedding. ON top of it all, I added the comforter and just folded it down at the bottom so that it looks nice and puffy. I love the puffy look on bedding, it just seems so cozy to me!
In the photo below, you can see some of the fringe peeking out at the bottom of the bed. That goes along the side as well, and I just thought it added a pretty and feminine touch to the bed. I talked about this in the week one post, but this bed has belonged to my daughter since she was three years old, and that and the dresser and nightstand were all handmade especially for her in Amish Country (Sugar Creek, Ohio).
There were several dings and scratches in this furniture from years of use, and I even found a spot on one of the bed posts where she had carved her name into it as a small girl. So I used a minwax stain marker in the color cherry to fill in the scratches so they are now barely visible to the naked eye, and what an improvement it was for very little effort! this marker is something I already had on hand and was brought with me when we moved. It sure came in handy for this furniture!
I can’t wait to share the full reveal of this guest bedroom next week! I hope you will come back and visit to see the final space. It turned out exactly the way I envisioned it, so stay tuned next Wednesday for the big reveal!
To Do List for Guest Bedroom Makeover:
paint walls Paint closet and bedroom doors paint baseboards and trim hang curtains
add a rug from another room
make over vintage trunk add new bedding
update ceiling light
add accessories, decor, and wall art that we already have
My Budget For The Guest Bedroom Makeover So Far
Wall Paint- Valspar Bistro White: $28.98
Door Paint- left over from kitchen island: $0
Trim Paint- left over from breakfast room: $0
Bun feet for trunk- $12.85
Chalk Paint and Clear Wax: $0 (I already owned this from another project)
New Bedding- $39.99
Right now I am sitting pretty with $81.82 of my budget already spent. I decided to ditch hanging shelves because I won’t make it within my budget, but that is something we can add at a later time, and it doesn’t take away from the room in my opinion.
