Before and After: My Favorite Room

I know I’ve posted bits and pieces of this before, but the CSI Project is having a Before and After party, so I decided to put it all together.

Visit thecsiproject.com

Our bedroom before:  messy, neglected, frumpy, yuck.



After:  paint, new lamps (JC Penney-$50 each), new bedding (duvet cover $60, 2 Ikea velvet pillows $15 each), new nightstands ($10 and $46).


Ikea curtain rod ($20), and curtains ($10):


Garage sale plates: $3 for set of 4


Total makeover (not including paint): approximately $280.


Having a bedroom we love:  priceless!
