Vintage find for my bedroom! 

About a year ago my fiancé and I visited a vintage shop in town and I fell in love with this fireplace / mantle piece. I’ve been thinking about it all year ya’ll! 

We decided to go back to the same store over the weekend and what do you know, the mantle was still there! 

How pretty is this thing? We asked the shop for some information on it. The vendor found it in New England, Maine to be exact and was told it was from the 1930’s. This just made my heart flutter a little bit more! 

So we brought it home!!!! Yay!!!!!!! For a hefty price of $250, but so worth it! 

I’ve been pretty anxious all week to get this baby decorated! Finally I had some time to go to a few shops yesterday. I decided I wanted to do a mix of flowers and books! 

  • Vase I got in sale at Bealles Outlet for $5.99
  • Flowers are two bundles from Hobby Lobby, they are 50% off this week, so I got both bundles for $10. 
  • Books I got from Goodwill for a total of $6. I couldn’t find old books so I just took the flaps of these. I settled for a title called The love story and two Nicholas Sparks books! 
  • Black sign on top reads just love, scored this at hobby lobby for $4.99

Im in love! 🌸🌹🏡💕

Small Bathroom Update! Under $100.

image

I’ve been working on this bathroom since we moved in. It’s primarily my son’s bathroom, but also the guest bathroom. It’s super tiny, so I wanted to add some color in there that would pop out. When we moved in, it had a hideous mirror. It was etched around the edges with a floral design, definitely not something I wanted in my son’s bathroom. Or in general, lol.

I found this gem at Lowe’s for around $30.

I also got my shelves at Lowe’s for around $18 a piece. They are 23″ floating shelves. Super easy to install.

image

I mostly got everything else at hobby lobby, on sale of course! That’s just how I roll!

Flowers are a must for me. I have them everywhere. I think they add warmth and color, which are two of my favorite things! These I paid $6.80 for.

My son actually picked this out. He’s the happiest little boy you’d ever meet, even nick named smiley on his baseball team, so it was no suprise that he’d like this. 😊😊 This baby cost my a crazy $1.99. I like mixing the silvers and the golds!

image

My son also picked this out. He calls it a dog, I’m pretty sure it’s a horse, but either way it was a bargain at $6.80 as well!

image

Towels I got at Target actually. I believe I spent around $7 for two hand towels, and two face towels.

image

A basket was the first thing I looked for, as I didn’t want guests to have to dig through my cabinets for toilet paper. This was also on sale at hobby lobby for $7.79. It was only 30% off because it’s a “spring item”.  A little more than I wanted to pay, but the color worked!

image

Last but not least, the framed saying I also grabbed at Hobby Lobby for $12.

image

Overall, my bathroom got a nice upgrade for less than $100. I took a very boring, very plain bathroom and added color, depth, and character. I was a little worried that the shelves were gonna make the room look smaller, but it really did the opposite. I absolutely love the way it turned out, and most importantly so does my son!

Thankful for weekend projects!!!!

I got my shower curtain prior to moving in, I believe I got it at Kohl’s, for probably less than $20 knowing me. 😊

Bedroom Makeover Complete! Budget Friendly nightstand decor at $80!! #bedroomupdate

Bedroom Nightstand Decor
Night stand decor, gray and white theme

Being the impatient person that I am, I started immediately shopping for how to decorate my night stands after finally hanging my bargain mirrors last weekend, which I wrote about earlier in my blog!!! I am super excited how they turned out! I am always shopping for good deals, and was able to match my style and my color scheme at an affordable price. #doublepoints

I found the lamps at my local Ross store for a steal. It is a 24 inch table lamp, silver and crystal  base with a gray shade. How perfect is this? Even better it was only $24.99!

image

Books and flowers are some of my favorite things so I knew I wanted to incorporate them somehow, without breaking the bank or my color scheme. The flower set I found at TJ Maxx for only $6.99! The book boxes are from Hobby Lobby, both discounted 50%, were $7.99 and $9.99. I absolutely had to have the love one when I saw it, being my bedroom, I love to express all things love!

image

I’m obsessed with my finished project, I hope you love it too. Spending just under $80 for a mirror, lamp, book boxes and flowers I feel like I most certainly didn’t break the bank! I feel accomplished and the need to have an adult, decorated bedroom fulfilled!!

Happy Saturday folks, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!!!
