Bedroom redo photos...

Quite a while back I mentioned that I was redoing a guest room. I have had it all done for quite a while except for hanging some things on the wall....I love it and call it the Zen room. One reason it is Zen for me is the whole room cost just under 80.00. Everything! I got a mismatch paint for 2.50 (regular 29.99 for a gallon.). I went to Ross and found a comforter set for under twenty dollars on clearance and everything else came from a yard sale or I made it.
 I started out with a mattress, foundation and frame and a gold curtain rod and two gold holders....It looked something like this in there......


Then I painted......


I can't remember why I have the chair on the bed, really! I love this green though.



This is the view from the door....On the ceiling it looks like there is paint but it is just a shadow..


I made two art pieces for the room....I found a blank canvas, old wood frame and a bunch of old keys in a baggie. I even found a can of copper spray paint for a quarter.  this is the result. The leather hanging thing is a key holder that some of the keys were hanging on. I just added beads to the bottom.

  
Cute little chair as a nightstand, vintage suitcase and a lamp and shade redo...The owl is the one that Daniel made.


Not a great picture but I have several of these little crates in the room. They were 50 cents a piece.



This print framed I found for two dollars. I really love it in the room.


I had some bright pink curtains that I tried to dye and they came out an obnoxious puce color. I painted, stained and inked this and added texture with thread. I then took a big branch that fell in the yard and tacked it over the fabric and sprayed over it with copper paint.


This was my own idea. I found these little wooden stakes and painted them then inked in the grand kids names and how far away they are. Luke's point up because he is in heaven. My own Baby Angel.



Last of all, a couple ideas from Pinterest. Fabric wrapped pillows (no sewing). and Two sheer curtains instead of a headboard behind the bed. On the bottom layer are quotes that are inspiring that I wrote with a sharpie.

I love how it looks and the kid's like reading them .

That's it, it's a room now. I have redone several and am working on the laundry room now. I will show more later! Happy Fall....xoxox Melinda

Love it!! The green walls are fabulous-they look a touch brighter than my living room walls. And I want your painting! In conclusion--I would be a lingering guest if I had that room.

You are amazing! I wanted to let you know that Viva Las Vegas Stamps just lost one of their creative artists and stated they will be looking soon for a replacement. I think you should hop over and keep an eye out, you would be a wonderful asset to them!

Hi!

I was thinking of you today!

I love the stake idea you shared here.

I'm sad they're all so far away. How are you? How are things?
