It’s done . . . and we LOVE it!
The Grand Total for the paneled wall was:
$49.00, not including paint because we already had the paint in the garage from the builders
But seriously, $49.00! That was the molding at 46 cents a foot, and 2 tubes of construction adhesive.
$49.00 took us from:
This was hands down the most impact I’ve ever achieved for $49.00
Another inexpensive huge impact part of the bedroom would be our New BED!!! $90 off Craigslist (including the slats :). Actually the bed cost us -$60 We sold our old bed for $150 on craigslist and picked this one up the same day. I LOVED the simple, sort of farmhouse inspired look. If your looking for an inexpensive bed with a farmhouse look I couldn’t recommend this one enough, WE LOVE IT! It’s from IKEA it’s their Lillesand Bed, and it’s super affordable @ $149.00 for a Queen.
For the Window treatments I wanted to add a little texture, so woven grass roman blinds would be perfect, and VERY well priced. Our windows are fairly standard up stairs so finding blinds was easy. We found these woven grass Romans from Walmart for $20 each. I added white Ikea Lenda curtains at @$29.99 a pair. I cut the tab tops off of them and used clip on curtain rings (my new favorite item). We bought $6.99 curtain rods from JYSK.
The quilt on the end of the bed was made by me, it’s the first quilt I ever made!! I used our old top sheet from our old sheet (the organic ones from Target). The squares were made from mostly reused pieces of fabric from around the house, I think the total cost for the quilt was under $10 I’ll have a quilt tutorial coming up soon, I’m no master quilter but I’ll share what I’ve learned
I also snuck in a picture of our new alarm clock. It’s a Sunrise Alarm Clock with Nature sounds. There’s nothing I hate more then a Loud Beep Beep Beep in the morning, so we thought we’d try a sunrise alarm clock. 30 minutes before your alarm goes off the clock lights up gradually, and if that doesn’t wake you up it’s alarm is sounds of nature, you can pick chirping birds (our personal favorite) or a babbling brook (get ready to be late for work if you pick that one), I think there’s a ribbiting frogs setting but that seems more like a good night setting??? The theory behind them is that it gives your body a more natural awakening.
Lee likes it, he says the chirping birds are a nice way to wake up, but the light doesn’t do that much for him. Me . . . I could sleep through anything, so it doesn’t really matter too me, Lee wakes me up. Or Max, nothing like stinky dog breath in your face to wake you up!
So there’s part 1 of our master bedroom, we need a chair in the corner, some organization in the closets, eventually a fireplace!!! . . . eventually! But Part 2 should be coming soon, we’re adding hooks and artwork and a chandelier, some closet organizers, the works
Thanks for reading! Hope you all had a Fabulous Mother’s Day!
