Recently, I was bored. This led to be deciding to paint my nightstands. Originally, they were a light wood from Target, just under $20 a piece. They no longer have the exact color, because I purchased them in 2001.
Thirteen years, and numerous moves, the shelves are still holding up just fine. I was just sick of the color. So HJ and I pulled a gray paint can from the basement, and spent a weekend updating the nightstands.
That was going to be it for the bedroom update, so I have no before pictures of the whole room (what a bad blogger I am). The next week, a family friend offered to give me their queen size sleigh bed. I did not have anything other then a frame/mattress/boxspring, so I took them up on the “free” offer without knowing what it really looked like. I figured if I didn’t like it, I would refinish it.
So glad I did, it is beautiful.
Also, I was at Target last week, and cartwell had an app for 50% bedding, combined with a few other discounts, I scored this comforter for $20. If you have been to my house, you know the dog has a tendency to tear holes in blankets and bedding, so spending money on expensive bedding is not worth it.
If you’re keeping track, that makes both beds in our house FREE.

I was able to give my bedroom a whole new look for $20! I love getting a great new look that doesn’t put a dent in my bank account.
