Ok, so, everything went out of this room except for the mattress set. The walls are a soft green, even though it's difficult to tell that from the picture. The paint color and the carpet both stayed the same.
So, here is the budget savvy makeover. The lighting is tough in this room so I took pictures of parts of the room, rather than the whole thing, trying to control the glare from the window.
I found this tone on tone cream fabric with a coral motif. The coral has a sheen to it... so pretty!
Now, the other side of the room,
Then there is the table. Also a thrift store find. That's actually a 2 seater dinette type table, but there was enough room beside the bed; I thought it would make a perfect bedside table. It was brown and scratched up, but, I liked the shape. I sanded it down, sprayed it with several cans of Valspar spray paint, then gold leafed the edge (Rub n' Buff) and called it a day. I'll post the before and after pics of these projects in the next couple of days.
Then there's the headboard...whew... so many projects in this room!
I upholstered this queen size headboard. I found an inexpensive wood headboard on Craigslist, then added padding, fabric, and finished it off with cord trim. That "how to" will be posted soon too. I added a little gold sequined throw pillow for fun.
Here's what I added:
1 mirrored chest (bedside)
1 dinette table (bedside)
2 new lamps
114" custom curtain panels in a super nice fabric
upholstered queen headboard
2 throw pillows
(foam, paint, headboard fabric, and other materials)
Anyone care to venture a guess on how much my budget was??? Now don't go crazy and say something like $100 bucks or anything. I mean my budget was small but it wasn't that small! : )
