A New Bedroom

Phillip was out of town for a few days last week so I was able to work on my bedroom re-do and surprise him with it when he got home.

As a reminder, here is what my bedroom looked like last week...


Here it is today...


Another view...I already had the picture so I put it up instead of the white netting.


The comforter set came with two King size pillow shams. I used one for the bed and I took apart the other one and made nightstand covers.


My writing desk...


A view of the corner window...


I tried to re-decorate frugally and on somewhat of a budget. Here are the new things I got...

-1 King size comforter with shams (our bed is queen but I like the extra length on the sides)
-3 curtain rods
-6 sheer curtain panels
-1 King size pillow
-2 throw pillows
-2 regular pillow cases
-2 lamp shades

All for $1,494.58. Just kidding! ;0) Real total: $125.00.

I am really happy with the new look! A big thank you to Revee who helped me with the colors this past Friday. She suggested using the sage green found in the comforter for the curtains and I think it really softens up the color of the walls.

Thank you for looking at my bedroom makeover!!

The comforter colors make your walls look a different color as well!

Great job Kelli!

It looks great, but you didn't share with us what Phillip thought. :)

What a clever idea to make nightstand covers with the extra sham!

I did a bedroom makeover last week too. I'll post it soon!

Pam said...

Lovely! And I think the sage for the curtains was a great choice!

Kelli said...

Thank you, everyone! Phillip loves the new look and was happy about the total too! I was expecting him to jump up and down with excitment but I think that's just a girl thing. LOL

Penless Thoughts said...

It looks fabulous! I really like the picture replacing the netting. You did a great job. It is kind of like that makeover show where they copy the real expensive room for a lot less cost. That's what you've done. You go girl!

Becky said...

Perfect! Just lovely. What did Philip say when he saw it??

Becky said...

Oh, forgot to say you had my mouth drop open with your first total. I thought you needed to go on tv and have them help you with the decorating on a shoestring or whatever it is. Funny!

Karen said...

Oh, so peaceful looking, Kelli. You have made such a restful retreat for you and your sweetie!

Kelley said...

Absolutely beautiful Kelli!

Myrna said...

Very nice. It looks restful and peaceful--green was just the right touch! I agree on getting the king size for a queen bed. We did that with a queen size bed that is now in our guest room.

Jenn4Him said...

You did a great job. All the colors go so well together.

Julieann:)

Copper's Wife said...

Kelli, it's just lovely!!! It really seems brighter. I like the fact that you were able to keep the budget way down, too. So, did your husband like the change?

Jennifer said...

Great job! and what a wonderful surprise for your husband's return :o)

Anita said...

Oh, your bedroom looks very nice now, hope it will be a big surprise for your hubby!

I have a little surprise for you, I'll send it by e-mail this evening!

Mrs. Pivec said...

Yes, wow! The sage really works in there for you. Fantastic makeover! :)

shekinahhvac said...

Kelli, your room is so pretty. I love it. The comforter is exactly what I am looking for, for my room.
Love it, I bet hubby did too!
Blessings

Jodi said...

Kelli ~ your room looks great! It's a fascinating study in color to me because your comforter looks so different to me than mine simply because of the colors we've surrounded it with. I also agree with Corin - it makes your walls look like a different color than before. Great job on the room at a great price! :o)

Gena said...

Your bedroom looks so warm and inviting. I really need to redo mine, but just can't seem to decide on new colors.

I love seeing pictures of your house. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity.

Sonya said...

Oh my goodness, will you please come to my house and re-do my bedroom for $125?!!!!!

Jada said...

Wow, what a transformation! I love it! Too bad you don't live in PA (or I don't live in TX...LOL) or I'd hire you to redo my bedroom. It needs a redecoration!

Thanks for sharing! Love your blog!

Mama Russell said...

Wowee, looks great! Thanks for sharing the photos. Your hubby sure has one creative wife (something my husband does not have!).

Gloria said...

I think your room before the makeover was already lovely, but the 'after' is even more lovely! I especially love your writing desk, I'm planning to have a writing desk like that when I have my own house next time. =)
