{ Olivia's Room Redo }

Hey guys!! I'm so excited to be sharing this little on a budget room makeover with you!  I wanted to get the post up sooner ,but our internet was down :/ ! So today I'm sharing with you how I redid my sisters bedroom for under $85 !! She had an eclectic mix of some of her favorite items , bohemian goods & her lovely artwork mixed in with light orange walls. We decided to use  IKEA as our place to buy the goods she needed like curtains, decorative pillows, & a few accessories! She explained she wanted a 'Granny Chic' type of style bedroom ,so what better place then IKEA for some lacey pots, flower pillows etc..


BEFORE

 


  

All five of the pillows are from @IKEA! The white & grey puzzle piece pillows were $1.49 a piece!! 


The sign we made from some wood I had in the basement. In her writing she wrote out what she wanted then we used a Dremel tool to engrave the wood. After we did that I took some white paint on a sponge brush & went with the upward grain of the wood & 'swept' it on.  After that was dry I used some dark wax & applied it to the engraved part of the lettering, then took white & highlighted the letters. The final part of the was to add some cream chalk paint { Annie Sloan in Old Ochre } for the effect I was going for.


The white & stainless storage boxes are also from IKEA, $6.99 /2 ! 


The plush white throw was a whopping $3.99! Side Note : I need one!!!



The dried hydrangeas, dark brown rug & mason jar were all items I had for her room. The sheer gauzey curtains were also purchased at IKEA- $15.00/2 ! The tan grommet curtains I also had! 

Breakdown on the items in the room that were purchased! 

2 lace pots
3 candles
2 packs of curtains
5 pillows
1 throw
4 storage bins 
2 flower inserts

For under $85!!


Have a great week everyone!
