Do you love vintage rugs as much as I do? I dreamed of a vintage rug for this space but I could not find one that I could afford or that I was willing to put in the hallway to be stomped on 100 plus times a day. But I found the next best thing with this Vintage Inspired Tribal Hallway Runner and then I had a 5 second party. Finding a runner is not the easiest task. There were so many rugs that I liked that just didn’t come in a runner size and if they did I didn’t like the pattern as a runner. Some were just too flimsy to hold up to traffic and vacuuming and others were just too expensive. This ONE from NULOOM is not only affordable but it is so practical and in my humble opinion the pattern is perfect as a runner. I finished something else in here that is making me have my own mini dance parties. You can see the corner of it in this photo.

I have been waiting to show you my new TRIBAL HALLWAY RUNNER but life got the better of me last week. The whole family was home sick and as you can imagine I was swimming in a sea of tea and tissues.
All is well now and so I finally got a chance to sit down to write this post for the final week of the $1oo Room Challenge. To see why I chose to work on my hallway again and get a glimpse of the before pics click HERE Like I have said before I love this challenge because it keeps me motivated and pushes me to be creative because $100 goes quick!! A big thank you to Erin of LEMONS LAVENDER & LAUNDRY for hosting it!! It was really nice to finish a couple of projects that had been on my list for so long. I covered the counter top with MARBLE CONTACT PAPER and then made a FAMILY COMMAND CENTER which you can see a little of below. I was desperate for organization and it feels so good to have a place for everything. I called it a command center and Apartment Therapy called it a landing strip. I thought that was a pretty accurate description, a place for all the junk to land.
This hallway is 100 times better and it didn’t cost a lot of money. I got my DIY on and used what I had on hand.
My favorite project was turning this old TV cart that I already had into a small dog bed. What do you think? Isn’t it fun?
It is like night and day from the tacky plastic crate that has been living in this corner.
So now I can look at a styled table instead of this.
It never felt put together with that eyesore in here.
The size of the TV cart is just perfect for a small dog and it fits a standard size bed pillow and sham. I spent nothing making it because I already had everything.
As an added bonus Willow loves her new bed just as much as I do!
I shared a picture on INSTAGRAM STORIES of me laying on the floor to get this picture. I felt ridiculous. The things we do for a photo.
You might be wondering how much I spent.
I promised to stay within the original budget for this hallway project that I started in July 2017.
I was able to sell an old piece of furniture so that I could get a little more cash to work with. Again I used a lot of what I had on hand.
Sold old furniture..$50
2 Ribba frames…$10
Tribal hallway runner rug …$60 (sponsored)
1 Yard black linen fabric…$10
Contact paper and tools…$15
Grand total: $154
Not bad for all that we did in this little space. It makes me smile and dance everytime I walk through it.
Thanks again for hanging out with me while I transformed this drab cluttered hallway into something that makes me so happy.
I am so anxious to see what all the other participants accomplished with $100 and elbow grease. Aren’t you?
