I can't believe it!
Stephanie's room is finished. We finished early!
So here's how the rest of the room went down....btw, I apologize for the quality of pictures. I unfortunately forgot my real camera, so my phone's camera is all we had.
Day 3 was NOT successful. I went to IKEA (aka: The 8th wonder of the world) and found NOTHING. I was so bummed. It just was not my day.
Day 4 proved to be much more successful.
I can't wait to break this budget down for you, you are going to be amazed.
This lamp began all my inspiration for the accessories for the room:
I know...I Love it to. And SO did Stephanie, that's what was important. It was a splurge for our budget...$40, but we made up for it elsewhere.
That's Cindy's husband, Mike. He was so great to do all our spray painting for us! Thanks Mike!
Ok...so are you ready? Let's start with before:
So...what do you think? There are still a few touches that need to happen, like baskets put back into the cubs and a small chair for that table, but we'll talk about that in a second.
Ready to break this budget down now...because that's what it's all about...right? [smile]
Let's start with the most expensive area in the room:
Chairs (the BIGGEST splurge in the room): $300 ish (From Tuesday Morning)
Table: FREE (we shopped Steph's foyer, which she planned on getting rid of this anyway)
Curtains: $50 (A little more than I had hoped for but they are lined-silk panels so it was a deal!) (Also from Tuesday Morning)
Total: $419 (Wow...like the whole budget. But wait!)
Area 2 (this is the kids coloring table, we still need to find a small chair for right here but that can come later)
Table: $10! (Consignment store) Yes, $10, that was a steal too! It's super cute too, I wish I had a closer picture of it, it's got a farm-style finish on it.
Lamp: $10 (Family Dollar...yes, they have GREAT stuff there)
Crayon holder: $1.00 (Salvation Army- 1/2 price day!)
Super Cute airplane wood picture: $1.50 (Salvation Army 1/2 price day)
Frames: FREE, Steph already had
Inspirational quotes in the frames: FREE
Area total: $22.50
Area 3: (so sorry for the quality of this picture!)
Cube: FREE, already had
Spray paint: $20
Pictures: $10 a piece! (Family dollar)
Cute Plaque above pic #2: $1 (on clearance, family dollar)
And the only other thing we bought for the room was the rug: $37
And the grand total for the entire room was: $472! (ish...I didn't include tax)
Ok, so who's next? [smile]
