Our daughter, Nicole, moved to San Diego, yeah I know, rough life, lol, at least for the summer. She will be back for 2 months for 2 classes SEptember-Oct, and then who knows, ha! But in the mean time, I decided to redecorate her room, I love it, and she loves it, thank goodness!! I used many ideas that I have found on various blogs to make this room pretty, and on a very very small budget. Of course I totally didnt think to take a before pic.
Some shells from our Florida vacation last summer
This was an ugly garage sale chair with a pink satin seat cover. HA, not any more!
I saw a similar wall art on Craftberry Bush's site I like hers better, but for a first attempt, i was pretty happy with mine. One of the boards cracked when i was assembling, but since it was supposed to look warn and aged, i kept it.
Big Lots had a basket of starfish for $6 I separated it out to use in this room
My inspiration picture, from where else, HOME GOODS!!
I painted a goodwill find candlestick, and framed a piece of the chair fabric for a cheap piece of art, I had the frame.
I dumpster dived to grab these two great chippy windows, which my husband told me I really should sand and paint, WHAT, the chippy look is so in I said, and he said, shaking his head, whatever, ha! The little bedside table was another thrift store find. The pillows are from my favorite retail store, Home Goods!
The wicker chair was a castoff from my sister, and the little desk was a flea market find.
And Here she is in all her glory. The pretty chandy was an overstock find, i love it!!
So, what do you think?? I love it, and really thank so many blogs for the wonderful inspiration I get everyday from so many many talented ladies. I am not going to try to link up to some parties, but never having done it, we'll see if that happens, lol!
