Mini Makeover

I finally did a mini bedroom redo.  I’ve had that headboard on my husband’s to do list for more than 6 months!  I’ll share how he I did it in another post.

Redo cost:    $15.00 headboard (door, trim, paint, wood, L brackets)

$2.00 mirror from thrift store (should I repaint that? I kind of like the color.)

$19.00 duvet cover….more on that later.

$4.00 new red slipcover for bed pillow

= $40.00

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Pin It!

such great value for money!
It looks fabulous I'm just surprised...no quilt on the bed! :-0

Sweet! You are definitely my hero for making such a major impact with such a minor amount of cash.
I think you're right about the color of the mirror; it adds a little punch. Painting it is always an option for when you need a little change in the future.

Very nice! I love the mirror! We have one that is similar... it was a thank you gift for my mother, handwoven by a young lady who was being trained to take over the family business it German. Mom gave it to me a number of years ago and I love it.

How cool. The ornaments are a great idea!

Love it! I love a door converted into a head board. This has also been on my imaginary to do list.

Marie@PoutyPinkPrincess said...

I love everything!

Becky said...

it looks great! I'll definitely be looking for a how to on that headboard. We are getting a new bed and I don't want to spend a fortune on a fancy bed/headboard.

i like the mirror, i don't think i'd redo it.

pioneervalleygirl said...

Looks great - I do love a room re-do, especially on a budget like that.

Cheri said...

Is your hubby like mine...as soon as I do something, he comes in and says "I was gonna do that."? It looks really festive! I agree with KatieQ...paint the mirror later when you're ready for another little change.

Very nice!

That One Girl said...

It's gorgeous!!!!! I can't wait to be able to redo my bedroom!

Katie said...

Beautiful. I love all the bright white, and the ornament balls are great. It's motivating me to do something Christmas-y in my bedroom.

Sarah Craig said...

Very very neat!!

MoeWest said...

Looks great! I love that kind of headboard. I agree, leave the mirror that color. I think the mirror would look good hung so that it has more width.

My grandmother had that mirror! I wanted it when she passed away but she lived in Hawaii and it was too much hassle to try to bring things to the mainland. Now I wish I had!

ferne said...

Can't wait to see how you did the door headboard. I really need one and love the idea!

Sara said...

Love the ornaments above too---looks very pretty altogether:)

Mrs. Doodle said...

(Okay I am an rss reader that usually doesn't comment but I had to on this one:) awesome work!)

Anna said...

VERY cute! love the whole thing! it's very you. :)

Blue Is Bleu said...

Love it!!! I'm in dire need of a headboard... we've been saying we need one for almost 3 yrs lol I love what you did with the door.

Kellie said...

Love the door headboard.... is your bed queen or king? I'd love to do that as well... we have been searching for affordable headboard ideas, we currently have no headboard..... great job!
BTW... today I finished a baby size of your juice boxes pattern using cloud9 "under the sea" fabric... it came out so fab.... I'll email you a pic, you should have a flickr page for those of us who use your patterns.

Darling! IMHO, I would paint the mirror. I think a softer color would fit in better but either way, it's a great addition.

Texana said...

I love headboards made from doors...very cute!

Quilted Cupcake said...

Love this re-do. It's cute and affordable. My 2 favorites. Can't wait to hear about the door project.

Sandi said...

Oh I so want to do this! I had many projects on my list for the warm-ish weather. Now its gone! Boo hoo! Oh darn, gotta stay inside and quilt! :D

alexis said...

I'd repaint the mirror, but not white - bright yellow maybe? And hang it horizontally.

panamamama said...

Love it!
