I just want to send a huge virtual hug to all of my readers. Thank you for all of your amazing support. I’m so happy to read that everyone loved the room.
Danay arrived safely and I’m sorry to say I wasn’t able to get a reaction shot. It was only me and her at the house so no one was in the room to get the money shot.
So now that you got to see the after shot I’m going to break it down for you.
Since the main offense in the room was the furniture that needed to go. (Don’t worry Mom moved it down to the basement apt so overnight guests can still enjoy it :) )
Go to place for chic and cheap furniture was IKEA. Plus it was cash and carry which was key on our short time frame.
I decided to go with the Malm 6 drawer dresser in black brown, because it went nicely with the trim in the room and was large enough to hold the TV plus the $179.99 price tag didn’t hurt.
The baskets were a set from Burlington Coat Factory and only $8. They will house her hair and make-up products.
The candles were extras from another room therefore FREE.
Artwork above the TV was also free. I had two prints that I purchased from a thrift store a while back for their frame. I never used it so again it was just wasting space in my closet.
I popped out the artwork and glass. Added some rolled cork board I had in my craft closet. I also found some vintage Holland and Sherry in the craft closet from a thrift store and spray glue. Voila now she can pin whatever artwork she wants and switch it out when she so chooses.
The matching night stands were way to small and the 3 drawer chest in Malm was a bit too large and pricey for my budget at 79.99.
Enter the Kullen 3 drawer dresser at 39.99 it was the perfect fit for the room and my budget.
The lamps were extras that were originally in my home and then moved to my parents basement apt. They were pretty much collecting dust. So I snagged them for the redo and purchased new shades at Target. At $24.99 each it was a little high for my budget, but they were really key to the design so I picked them up.
Bedding actually remained the same. It wasn’t done on purpose, but it worked. The original toss pillows got moved to the basement apt and I grabbed the red ones that were hanging out down there from an old re-do. So bedding was totally FREE!
I did a lot of shopping around the house, which is key in a budget remodel. I tend to save a lot of the things from old projects or since I’m constantly re-decorating I have lots just sitting in closets.
The headboard has to be my favorite part of the room.
I’m going to do a how to post next week, but for the budget here is the breakdown.
It’s 3 separate pieces of MDF that were about $5 each so my Home Depot total was $15.
The batting was $10 at JOANN’s.
The fabric was also a score from my JOANN’s and came in at 6.99 a yard. I used 2, which made my fabric total: $14.
The mirror above the bed was from Michaels. It was part of their Christmas section, which is out already. It was 69.99, but I had a 40% off coupon so it came in at $42.
The artwork was taken from an old calendar my sister had. So that part was free.
The frames were another purchase from Michaels. They were $6 each and the mats were $1.99.
Artwork total: $32
The chair came from one of my favorite thrift stores. I’m friendly with the manager and once I told her what I was doing with the chair I got it for FREE!
I bought 4 yards of burlap at Walmart. At $2.49 it came up to $10. I used that to cover the seat. I also purchased 2 cans of spraypaint at Walmart ($2.50 x 2)
The window treatments were a neutral shade and a somewhat recent purchase so they stayed. The finials were swapped out with another pair my mother had in the house.
On this side of the room there is another dresser. It was in the basement apt. It was actually left in the home when my parents bought this house and has been painted many, many times. So it just got a fresh coat in a putty beige. The paint came from a prior craft project I had done, which I got for $1 in the Opps paint section of Home Depot. (It was a quart)
The remaining burlap was used here as well. I used two old corkboards that my mom was no longer using. The large board simply got 2 layers of burlap and then simple clear push pins ($2 @ staples) were used to hang the jewelry.
Cork board number 2 was covered in extra burlap from the headboard project, wrapped in burlap and then to give the look of nail head trim I used white tacks (88 cents per package x 3) from Walmart.
The artwork piece was from Target and in the clearence section for $5.
The lamp was another find from the basement and Daniela owned the small mirror. (There is also a long mirror behind the front door so that Danay can give herself a once over before heading out the door)
The remaining accessories such as the red/orange tray and the glass canisters came from Target and Michaels. I needed something to fill the canisters with and I was running out of time and $ so the candy aisle come to the rescue. The large one is filled with toostie rolls and the small one with peanut M&Ms. Since I wanted it to go with my color scheme I took time this morning to pick out all the blue and green M&Ms. Nutty maybe, but it needed to get done. Total for extras: $41.
Oh I just realized that I must have missed a couple things in my original add up and I came in at $497.
Wow that was a long post. I hope I explained everything and if you have any more question feel free to email!
