Our room has been decorated the same for about two years & I was getting tired of it! However, I didn't want to spend the money re-decorating it so I decided to just leave it. But one day I was at Marshalls (on of my fave places) and fell in L.O.V.E. with some bedding that they had. I told myself that I didn't need it & left the store. But I kept thinking about it! I decided that if I wanted it that bad, then I should get it. So, the next day I went to Marshalls hoping that they still had it & they did! So, I happily bought it but soon realized that I would have to change a lot of things in my room to match the new bedding. I decided to do this as cheaply as possible and used a lot of things that I already had. I spent under $200 for everything including the bedding, curtains (cheap ones also from Marshalls that I am not thrilled with, but they will work for now) a lampshade, 3 picture frames, paint and glass knobs I had to have for my dresser that I got on clearance for $6!
We don't have a bedroom suit, so I previously painted our furniture to give it a more cohesive look. I am hoping to get new bedroom furniture in our next house, but what we have will do for now.
You will notice in the pics that our bed is flanked by two doors (the master bath & walk-in closet doors.) This doesn't leave a lot of options for furniture arrangement in addition to the fact that our room is pretty small, so I left everything where it was.
Well, enough of me jabbering away. Here are some before & after pics!

After! (first, some teasers) *wink*
bedroom art ;) I grabbed some shells that we found at the beach & snapped a few pics of them for some cheap art work!
It was not the original plan, but the style turned 'beachy.' I like it!
I painted this shelf & frames to give it a distressed look.
I love pillows! There are a total of 10 on the bed including the ones we actually sleep on ;) Takes me forever to make the bed! :p
My glass knobs that I love!
I had to keep my monogram, so I painted it with a somewhat distressed look to match the room & hung it in another spot.
I love this bed!
Well there you have it, blog readers, our newly decorated room. I hope I can be happy with this decór till we move! ;)
I'm liking up to a GREAT blog party!
