Thank you for all of your very kind comments regarding my bedroom makeover.
Some of you wondered about what it looked like "before".
So here goes.
A reminder of what it looks like now:
This is how our room looked, it was nice enough, but the pink was not working for us.
And the ten year old knotty pine headboard left me "pining" for a change.
Our curb-side find chest of drawers, minus the drawer pulls, in brass.
I painted the drawer pulls white.
The whole room.
I've kept the vintage chenille bedspread, and I made the white pillow slips as well as the checked slips and the monogrammed pillow. It was all made from fabric that I already had.
The only purchases made were with an Ikea gift card from my son and daughter-in-law.
The checked comforter at the end of the bed was $13.99, the single linen curtain panel was $2.00 and the shears were $15.99.
The paint was a quart of mis-tint grey that cost $7.50.
And I'm really happy with it.
I'm joining Dawn for her Budget Decorating Party.
Have a wonderful week!
In black and white!
