A start on Madi's bedroom makeover

Here is a preview of Madison's bedroom so far. I can't wait to finish it up. My inspiration was from the Pottery Barn website from the "Abby" bedding collection. I live in a rental house so I wasn't allowed to paint the walls so I had to be creative in order to make the room come together. This is a canvas collection from Pottery Barn that I replicated for $35.00 and hours of labor. The collection from Pottery Barn would have cost me $364.00 for the completed set.

The one on the left is from Pottery Barn and the one on the right I painted thanks go Big Lots (Each Canvas was $4.00)

Then I went to Jo-Ann fabrics and ironically when I went in they were closing a couple of their stores and opening one HUGE store on Milwaukee and so they had amazing sales. I got 10 yards of high quality fabric and a lamp for about $50.00. A little bit of love time and creativity I had a brand new beautiful lamp. I found the base of the lamp at Goodwill for $5.00 and it was brand new with tags still on it.

Right now I am refinishing an old ugly dresser that was given to me by my sister. The original dresser was hunter green with a fake wood laminate dresser knobs. I found an idea online where you use mod podge to dress up dresser drawers with fabric (which was purchased at Joanne's) so anyways here is the start of a brand new dresser for Madison.

I would "LOVE" to hear what you think. :D

I love it! I do the same thing. Find things I like and then recreate them for much less. Way to go Stephanie! I love it. So is that your secret? Making her room a big girl room? I am thinking you need to tell us soon! I wanted to talk to you at church. I had to hurry and run home to get the roast out of the oven because we were having some people over. Sundays are so hectic for us anyway.
