Another Wednesday, another giveaway ($150 to Pottery Barn Kids) and this one is extra special because it involves a design challenge and some new blogger friends!

You guys all know how much I love and how easy they make it to stay organized and on budget for just about anything so I couldn’t turndown this fun challenge. A group of us were asked to create a design board for a child’s room (any age). We had to include everything from furniture and bedding to a reading nook for under $2,500. I chose the boys (Espen – 9 and Griffin – 4) shared room and had way too much fun picking things out. Even better, I included a few things that are already in their room and managed to come in well under budget! Fingers crossed I’ll be able to put my summing to good use and redecorate their digs in real life, soon.

Here’s a peek at my inspiration and board:
