Last week, I put my decorating obsession to good use and gave my parents’ master bedroom a complete makeover. My mom’s initial complaint about her bedroom was the paint color of the walls and the ceiling. The drab yellow definitely had to go. My main concern was its wasted space; the large room felt empty despite the king-size bed and the giant dresser.
We quickly got to work. I ordered all the new furniture and accessories online. My mom and I painted the walls and ceiling. Scott channeled Chico again and installed the lighting fixture. The result? Pretty damn good! The room went through a complete transformation.
Notice the yucky yellow paint and un-coziness.
So much more cozy, elegant, and calming! And totally affordable! Check out the expenditures below.
Paint: $80 (1 gallon for accent wall, 1 gallon for the other walls, 1 gallon for ceiling)
Chair & Ottoman set: $335
Rug 5′x8′: $134 (50% Off for Mother’s Day!)
Console Table: $230
2 Table Lamps: $180
Pendant Lamp: $114
4 Curtain Panels: $60 (I’m pissed because these look exactly like my West Elm silk ones but cost a fraction of the price I paid.)
Framed illustration over the chair: $40 from HomeGoods
Wall frames and mattes: $80 from Aaron Brothers with 30% off coupon (I shot and printed the photos myself)
Accent pillow: $12 from Target
Total Cost: $1448
Not bad considering we did everything in a week. Thanks, Internet! Couldn’t have done it without you and your sweet deals!
