One of my passions is decorating!!! Camille (one of my best friends and running partner) loves it just as much as me. When I say decorating-- I mean "Thrift Store" Decorating, scrappy, repurpose, use what you have, make it work, and make it beautiful on a budget!!
We talked our friend Brooke into letting us do her Master Bedroom. Camille started a pin board on pinterest and had Brooke pin the things she loved. After browsing her pinboard we chose the color scheme of NAVY and CORAL.
This was her inpiration pic from Censational Girl blog.
BEFORE---her husbands (Mike) only request was to keep the waterbed! I took a look at it and figured we could make it work. I could make it look like a platform bed, and more modern. I figured we could turn the headboard around to update it and lose all the cubbies, mirror and sconces.
BEFORE---too short of curtains, and not so cute valances---sorry Brooke. I also wanted to eliminate the home gym in the corner---it was time for a "Big Girl" room.
I also slipcovered the lamp shades in a blue diamond fabric. The duvet is from Overstock.com--King size was $80--beats buying the fabric and sewing it myself! A king size Duvet requires a minimum of 6 yds per side....12 yds total.
PROCESS---Hit the local Thrift Store without Brooke---Spent $65 on 2 chairs, 4 lamps, card table, magazine basket, and some trinket accessories... Camille and I were on a HIGH----All the while Brookes husband is texting us joking....saying we won't be reimbursed for junk! We told him it was all FABULOUS JUNK!!!
Total we spent $550 and that included down comforter, sheets, duvet, paint, light fixtures, two dressers, two end tables, curtains, curtain rods, spray paint, accessories, 2 chairs, 3 pillows, 4 lamps, and rug....One mans junk is another mans treasure!
