A Big Girl Room

1 Comment

I know everyone has been on the edge of their seats wondering what has progressed in our house during my blogging hiatus. Okay, maybe not, but regardless, even with a newborn, progress has been made!

Not by me, exactly, but the TSH has been hard at work!

Remember this room?

Well, now it looks like this:

I think we only spent about $250. $50ish on paint (Platinum in Clark and Kensington and ceiling white ultra flat paint), less than $50 on joint compound, etc, $40 on rug and mat, $20 on white bedspread, $30 on plywood sheet to use in place of box spring, $25ish on waterproof covers for mattress and pillow. The other stuff came from either her previous room (curtains, pillows, quilt, etc.), our previous room (the dresser), or the previous owners (twin bed and mattress).

It still needs some decor on the walls and furniture such as a bookshelf and chair, but since we mostly live out of the living room all day, I’m not in a rush to get those things. The costume box and stuffed animals up there keep PG quite content. I’m just happy to have nice clean gray walls. And insulation. The insulation we had added to the attic and kneewalls successfully brought her room’s temperature up to that of ours, rather than a consistent 5 degrees below as it had been previously this winter.

Anyone else been doing a bedroom remodel on a budget? Do share.
