First off let me just say how WOWED I was by all of the entries. There were all so incredibly beautiful and creative and certainly took a lot of time to make..so great job girls! Second…THANK YOU for voting for my project! It was certainly a work of love..can’t thank you enough.:)
Wow..what a whirlwind makeover.
Take a look at the pictures..enjoy some of the details, and then if you have ANY questions or want to see a tutorial of something, let me know in the comments!
A quick reminder of the money breakdown..I did all 4 big projects for just under $70:
I was completely inspired by a duvet cover I saw at Urban Outfitters that rang in at $198. Not in my budget, but a $28 sheet set and $6 worth of sheets, tablecloths, and bed skirts from the thrift store and voila, I had a fun and fashionable duvet cover. I used my left over ruffles and hand stitched them to my previous bed skirt. I bought $8 worth of clothes and turned them into fun pillows for my bed and then with 4 shutters that cost just $5, I made a beautiful new headboard. After strolling through the dollar store and finding a braided wooden wreath and fake birds, I took a book from the thrift store and wrapped it and made some sweet hand cut flowers for the wreath. I spray painted the bird and it completed the look!
What started as a BLAH bedroom turned into one sweet abode to be in with a lot of work and a little money.
I love this shot of the headboard. It was really so simple to make, but makes a big impact in the room.
Here was the inspiration for the duvet cover:
Urban Outfitters..$198. yikes.
