This month I mentioned that we were in the process of re-doing my daughter’s bedroom. I like to do things as frugal as possible, so I mentioned that when I decorate, I usually start with an inspiration piece, and then add other inexpensive pieces slowly until I have enough items to start putting the room together.
Here is the inspiration piece for my daughter’s new room. We found this comforter on clearance at Target, it was 75% off, and it only cost us $14.98 for the comforter, sham, bed skirt and sheet set. SCORE!!! Her two favorite colors are the purple and the aqua, so we decided to accent the room in those 2 colors.
The comforter came in this fabric bag, so I plan on making some throw pillows out of it. DOUBLE SCORE!! We picked up the Valance and Curtains at 75% off.
We plan on adding a desk to her room, so I picked up the wastebasket and the cup, both of which were found in the Bath Department. We plan on using the cup as a pencil holder on her desk. Both items were 75% off! I picked up the frame all the way back in November, it was actually part of the Halloween clearance. I picked this one up at 90% off!!
Our most recent purchase was the purple lamp, again at 75% off. Are you starting to see a theme here?
Here is the cost breakdown of her room thus far:
Comforter/Sheet set 14.98
(2) Valance 2.48
(2) Curtains 1.24
Pencil holder (cup) 2.24
Total Spent = $34.37 (retail = $140.91)
Next up: I will show you what we are doing to change clearance artwork and frames into something new to match her room. Can’t wait to show you!
