We're Here To Help You Succeed
Do you have one of THOSE rooms? You know the one that everyone loves but nobody knows what to do with? A room that is in need of a new paint job, a declutter or an overall new look? We all do! The challenge is to focus across 3 weekends (or weeks if you have the time) and get that room DONE, all for under $200. Or even better challenge yourself to spend less, or nothing!
Our Real Room Renovation challenge is designed to help you get motivated to finish the room, no matter what needs doing. It is about doing it in a sustainable & affordable way. It will help guide you along the way, with support from our community and advice on your room plans to make sure it is all your own style and a room you can spend time in happily. Function of the space will be key.
The goal is to do what is needed - it may be a simple declutter and swapping out some furniture from another room. Or it may be about a paint job and finding a new piece at the op shop. The goal is to reuse, rearrange, upcycle, and use vintage and secondhand pieces. You will buy only vintage, fair trade or locally made items for the renovation and we will recommend healthy options for paints, and other finishes you may need.
join the real room renovators!
Have you always been a room renovator like me? As a child and teen I would constantly rearrange my bedroom, create zones and reuse what I had. Op shop and secondhand trips with my parents were a joy. Today, as a long term rearranger, a stylist and designer (and big lover of faffing!) I often create an entirely new look in a weekend - with a simple process that includes decluttering, rearranging and adding some key pieces from secondhand shops, op shops, roadside finds and local makers. In this challenge you will follow this process and be challenged to create a new look in one room in your house, across 3 weeks, under $200. It is not about a particular look or style but about creating a room you love, with what you have already, a bit of elbow grease and some small tweaks that can make a big impact.
