Okay so on my adventure to redecorate our guest bedroom I thought I would start with small pieces of inspiration. I made this three-tiered vanity tray for less than five bucks!
3 different shaped metal trays from the Dollar Tree
2 different candle sticks from the goodwill
Hot glue gun
It took less than five minutes and I absolutely love it. You can get different sized candle sticks depending on how you want to organize your make-up. When I glued them together I didn’t get them lined up quite right but you can hardly tell!
These would be great in the kitchen to for cupcakes or other h’orderves!
Happy Home Making!
Here is just a tease of what I created for my master bedroom. Along with the white wash headboard, white canopy, chandler, and other touches. I created these from scratch.
An assortment of flowers
4 different size mason jars
Three fragrant candles
Colored ribbon of your choice
All for under 20 dollars, I have created customized decor for our entertainment center/dresser in our master bedroom. You can choose any color scheme or level of frill to fit your desires!
Alright so here is my guest room as it sits right now. We have been here for a year, and I still have not gotten to making this room useful. For inspiration I have carried on the shabby chic motif from my master bedroom. I am setting a 200 dollar budget for myself. Let’s see if I can make it happen. With help from my best friend Caitlin this is what I hope to achieve.
Overall a Paris inspired vanity and wardrobe room. Some must have’s…
A chandler similar to the one in my master
A cocktail bar
A vanity for all my make-up and primping materials
A lounging space to relax
And most of all a wardrobe to display my favorite pieces (including shoes)
Work will begin next week and I am giving myself a month to complete the entire project all under 200 dollars. Do you think I can do it?
Follow the project here with at the minimum once a week updates, plus a few extras along the way :)
My very first DIY project was to overhaul my 11x13 apartment bedroom. I found inspiration from a pile of old pallets advertised on Craigs List. French countryside with a contemporary feel began to jump out at me everywhere I went. After hours of searching “how to build a headboard” I snagged my step-dad and we went to work.
Several 3” and 2” wood screws
We had a VERY rough rendition of my dream headboard. It took some serious elbow grease and 30 grit sandpaper and it was ready to paint. A single pint of semi-gloss white paint applied with an old rag and it was all I had dreamed of!
All for a days worth of work and less than 40 precious dollars.
This is me, a thriving twenty-something creating her life one DIY at a time. Balancing school, and part-time work does not leave much time for creating an oasis of home. Even with limited artistic talent, but a abstract imagination anyone can created their dream home for pennies on the dollar. Here is my attempt. Jouir de.
