A Design On Really A Dime

The guest room is finished and it was definitely done on a shoestring budget...remember I have one college graduate and now one just starting.
The whole redo started with finding this inspiration piece at the flea:

and that lead to painting the mid century dresser a beautiful jade green:

A visit to the hall linen closet, grabbing some leftover lamps from the sale, adding black lamp shades from Target, and last but not least...the estate sale art that was $20 and there my friends is a pretty stylish room on a budget.

Sometimes it just takes one piece to set off a change and it doesn't have to be a large investment. I am a firm believer in reuse, re purpose, and shop at home. Also estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets are a gold mind of one of a kind finds. It takes patience and time but when you find that "it" piece, it is like a light bulb going off in your head or your floor


  1. Amen! Looks good! I love the mirror over the bed too.

  2. Loving it! Is that a stencil on the chest of drawers or was that part of the original design? Very creative!

  3. It looks so good. I want to see in person please :)
