I am super excited to have a reason to redo a room
If I could afford to redecorate my house every year or two, I would
I love to decorate
I love the hunt for CHEAP decor
I love learning from others who know what they are doing
I really don't know what I am doing
but I enjoy it!
I am learning to not be so matchy-matchy
To have variety
Recently I have wanted a navy blue room
I had decided whether baby #2 was a boy or girl, the nursery would be navy blue with different accent colors depending on gender
When I decorated Payton's nursery, I stayed with the color the room already was
I also took almost all hand-me-downs and spent under $50 on the whole room that is including the furniture
I am very thankful for hand-me-downs
It was a nice, simple, clean room
But now I get to dream
Then I spotted the orange giraffe throw at Home Goods
So navy and orange....
kinda close to gator colors :)
Then right after we found out it was a boy my friend Mindy showed me a mirror she tried to sell in a garage sale, but got low offers for
It is unique mirror with leather and animal hide
And then the wheels started rolling....
Navy, Orange, White, Classic yet Rustic
Went to home goods and found some unique, cheap decor pieces
The excitement was growing
I text Steve and said I need a European deer mount and some sheds (antlers)
He said he liked where this was going
I found a wall color I loved in Pottery Barn's most recent magazine and went online and found the exact color
I love seeing examples of colors because we all know little swatches don't do much
My budget falls between $100-$150 for the whole room makeover
Thanks to living by a great Home Goods and my DIY desire, I will stay within budget
Here is the picture one more time, my goal is to finish in the next 2 months before the holiday's hit
FYI - this means I also get to decorate Payton's big girl room and that redo will be about $50 for the whole room, I have scored amazing deals. Keep an eye for that room make over very soon!
