Room Redo

Well I'm really excited to finally have our room the way I want it. I've been spending a lot of time searching for certain things and trying to find great deals. I spent hardly any money on these projects and it was really fun. I picked up the canvases at Michael's quite awhile ago when they were having a great sale and hadn't been able to figure out what I wanted to do with them. I searched tons of blogs trying to find ideas and finally found a blog home show where a lady did a damask design on a wall hanging. Not sure why I didn't think of that before since our bedspread is damask. :) I ended up painting them all the different colors I wanted in our room and had my Aunt Deanna cut out the damask design in vinyl. I just got it finished up yesterday and wanted to hang it up so bad, but we aren't hanging up anything at this house because it's for sale so I used blue tack; it worked like a charm.
I picked up the orange pillow at Target, but added the polka dots with felt. The green pillow I got at Ross and I added the ruffle with leftover fabric from Jacoby's chair my mom and I recovered. For the third pillow I had such a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do, but I finally decided to use some robin-egg blue ric rac I had and make that pillow.
I wanted to add little bits robin-egg blue, orange, red, and green throughout the room, so I wound up my earring yarn into balls and picked up the green alarm clock and orange lantern. There are still a few things I'm planning to do, but I'm finally happy with my room for once. This definitely proves that you redecorate a room for hardly anything.

I think you proved that you can decorate without spending hardly anything....I do not have that talent. Even if I spent a lot it wouldn't look as good as yours. I'm jealous!

I love your canvas wall hangings. They turned out so cool and your pillows are just so fun together. Love the yarn in the jar--I am definitely going to have to steal that idea from you. Way to go on decorating on a budget. You should figure out how much you spent and brag about it because I know you did an awesome job for very little money!
