Have you ever wanted to redecorate a room in your house but didn’t want to spend a lot of money? I did just that this week. The bedroom was decorated under $100 by shopping my house and the Old Lake George shop.
The starting point for the room was the bed. I have had a down comforter, bedskirt and shams sitting at the dry cleaners after purchasing them from an estate sale. The 3 items were only $60, for a king size set.
I picked up the comforter set this week and as I was lying in bed that night redecorating the room, please tell me that that is how you fall asleep also, 🙂 , I remembered that I had the perfect curtain fabric.
Last winter when I visited my parents in Texas, one of my Mom’s quilter friends was in the process of downsizing her fabrics.
She had yards upon yards of two particular fabrics that she had intended to make a quilt from, but she changed her mind. My Mom acquired the fabric and used a little bit of it to back a quilt she was making but there was still a lot of fabric left.
I mean, a lot of leftover fabric.
Here are those fabrics all together on top of the comforter and some added sparkle for affect.
Everything is very neutral and goldish. They are tricky to photograph but you’ll get the picture.
No, literally I will show you pictures in a sec.
First lets look at the previous curtains.
Total side story: When I was sewing the curtains, I called my Dad about something. The conversation got around to him asking me what I was doing that day. I shared with him that I was making new curtains.
New curtains? Didn’t you just make curtains? was his response.
Wade, Dad I did. But…never mind. 🙂
Where was I going with this? Oh, right.
After completing and hanging the NEW CURTAINS, (eye roll), I moved the pillows that I showed you yesterday on the loveseat to the bed. I thought they looked even better on the bed.
From the last time I shared these pictures, so many of you were interested in the pillows.
Here is the way to order them for your home.
And now some before and after photos:
And one more close up….
Simple easy changes.
