Every piece is something that I picked up at an auction, estate sale or such.
Let me start off by showing you the before -
The nightstands we had stashed. I had just added a little color to the drawers to give me a little something.
I never cared for the dresser under our TV. It didn't give the room to walk through that I was looking for.
The couch is part of our sectional that is pretty old. I wanted to make room in our common area & so we had moved it into our room. In the above picture, I wasn't fond of where the couch sat...it felt out of place. And, we NEVER used it.
|See the thing right on the left side sticking out..you can see the crown. That is the big armoire I moved out (ok well the guys moved it)|
And..then it looked like this in my attempt to make it cozier. I wasn't ready yet to paint anything for our room.
Not much of a change except my quilt and some pillows. Again I love our room, it is my quiet place to unwind at the end of the day. But, it still wasn't feeling all there yet!
I removed the dresser, turned the top of a cabinet hutch into a TV Stand. I replaced the nightstands with different pieces I picked up and painted. I moved the couch to a better spot, added a couple of stools, a couple of old chippy windows, added some painted weathered wood planks to our headboard...and I have a budget friendly makeover.
Now for the AFTER....
Pictures don't quite do this space justice. It feels good, cozy, warm, comfortable and a place that at the end of the day I can unwind.
See where the couch is now? You can sit to watch TV (without straining to see), read a book, or relax and enjoy the beautiful view.
We do have other pillows but then you wouldn't have been able to see the headboard. I love pillows...lots of pillows!!! But, I really wanted to show the headboard..
The cost to do this -
TV Cabinet (top of hutch) $25
My table (bottom of hutch) $25
Hubby table (oak dresser) $50
Planks for the headboard I had everything
Teal stool $2.50
Coffee Grain Sack stool $10 (target on clearance)
Grain sack $5 (used to cover stool & on TV Cabinet)
Old chippy windows - FREE :)
Everything else I had either already in the room or around the house including my $5.00 headboard you can read about soon.
Total cost - $117.50
The before & after...once more.
I hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you. It's the little things in life. As my husband said to me during this change "you like keep things fresh"!! Smart man :)
Ahh...tomorrow is Friday and I am off to an estate sale & then to our village wide yard sale all day Saturday!!!
