I know, I know I’ve been promising it for weeks! I’m actually not completely done. I have some projects that I’d like to tackle in this room, but for now, it’s done. We’ll call this temporarily complete. There’s always more projects, right?
I’m going to do a source list as well, but it’s really not going to be very helpful since this room was furnished with free or very cheap furniture and projects.
This room was actually in pretty good shape for me. I did very little painting in this room. It was all projects, which was fun but time consuming. The only painting I did was touch up the baseboards and wall that needed it.
GROSS! Sorry for the bad picture… I had to zoom in from the one above.

Here was my inspiration picture:
It ended up looking nothing like this, but I still love it. The original cost for the room in this picture is around $3700 (their fabric was $130/yd!!!)
My Final Cost: $400ish
10% of the cost! How’s that cheap?
Bed Skirt: I have a ton of this fabric left over, so I thought I’d make a bedskirt to go around the day bed.
Rug: I’d love a rug to go under the coffee table area. The tile can get super cold (and it’s not even winter yet). It would be nice to have a warm vaporizer for my kid.
Those will get done eventually. The bed skirt will basically be free since I’ve already included the cost of that materials in the room.
What do you think? I love this room and I LOVE that I finished it just in time for fall. I’ve already spent a few hours curled up on the bed or the chaise with a book and that throw. John sits out here with a cup of coffee in the mornings to do his bible study. It’s such a peaceful and happy room.
It is also important to add a fence in your property. They increase the value of the property. They keep us and our belongings safe. Fences come in many colors and types so they can improve curb appeal to your home. If you are considering installing a fence, hire the best fence services.
