A Simple Spare Bedroom ~ Before/After On a Budget of $0.00





Hey Friends!

Well I have been a busy girl these past few days.
My daughter graduates the 3rd of June...
and with that comes those looooong put
off projects...that now become a MUST!

Because my family does NOT live close
they will be coming into town...
and that means
 I badly have needed to get downstairs and whip the
 basement spare bedroom into some type of shape.

This room was originally my
Craft Room when we finished the basement over
6 years ago.
But...I just needed fresh light coming in from
windows to create and decided to take over one of our
*other* spare bedrooms instead.

So... 2 years ago this became a dumping room
of which I opened the door and
closed it REAAAAAAL quick!
So you can see with this series of Pix
what shape is was in Before...

I am almost embarrassed to even show these...
but I wanted ya to know I am for real! lol

See? I wasn't kidding was I?

I did this room on a budget of $0.00...or
I shopped my home and
used some creative juices.
Now, its probably NOT magazine
worthy, but it will do for now and
hopefully at least will provide a nice
comfy bed to sleep in.

Now the AFTER Pixs...not bad, huh?
I went for a vintage cottagy look...mixing/matching
some pieces I have had scattered.
I used some of my favorite vintage prints from my
computer and printed them on cardstock...whaaalaaa!
Do ya see some painted pieces around the room...they were some of my
first pieces I painted..I cringe to see them but
then again a great reminder of where I have been
and how far I have come...
I have a small collection of child sized chairs
which I used for some of my sweet bunnies
and dolls.
Tea for 2!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I just love this room!! Can you tell me how you attached the lace fabric to the ceiling? I just love old type trays, too. I've got Bree's that Daddy painted white for her and he lined it in green/white gingham for her nursery when she was born. I must dig it out and rehang it!! I also have such a thing for little chairs and benches ~ yours are adorable! Bravo!! Things are looking GREAT, dear friend!

Love,
