Last year for Christmas my husband and I sent the big kids to grandma's house, and in 4 days redecorated 3 rooms (yes, in case you are wondering, I do know that was crazy!)
We gift wrapped the doors - I told you it was the biggest present!
Mydaughter is a diva-princess and she needed a room that better reflected that. We started planning in September and loading things into the storage room. One of the first things I found was this:
vintage gold king-sized headboard
I loved it, I splurged and spent $25.00 on it (remember, I like free much better!)
My mom had some vintage gold fabric that she had been saving for quite a while, and I convinced her to gift it to me :
Next, I took the bed from my son's room and made it over:
Then I tufted it with rhinestone buttons on both sides. Here's what it looked like after:
(btw, the valance was free, thrown away by one of my mom's friends. She rescued it from their trash! It was UGLY purple, I recovered it with a remnant from Hobby Lobby, it was just BARELY big enough!)
chair with new desk from Walmart (eek - we ran out of time, I really wanted a vintage dresser set with a great round mirror, but couldn't find one that was affordable!), we omitted one shelf of the "baker's rack" top and inserted beautiful vintage mirror.
we also spraypainted this yellow shelf
and used it as a TV stand
It was all worth it just to see her face:
