That mom of mine, she's a go getter. When she first got here, I mentioned to her that I was thinking of painting my bedroom. The next thing I knew, I had a total bedroom makeover in the works. And what made it even cooler, was that we hunted for bargains and redecorated on a dime!
One Gallon of Paint (in Grandeur Gray): $23.47
Three picture frames for prints I had bought years ago and had never gotten around to framing: $24.00 (on sale at Michael's)
Two bedside tables from Target: $20.00 (Secret: they are really T.V. Trays, but they're solid wood, and they look great.)
One Live Palm from Ikea: $12.00
Two Lamps from Ikea:$24.00
Bed Lifters from Ross: $6.00
If I'm not mistaken, that adds up to $109.47. $109.47 to take my bedroom from this (please note the microscopic lamps, and the old, TINY GREEN bedside tables. Hello)...
Brian's side...Thanks to the help and inspiration of my mom, my room is now Rockin'.
Brian loved it, too, which is even better. Here he is, seeing it for the first time.
And here's my smokin' hot mom, and the teensy weensy paintbrush and one gallon of paint she used to paint the entire room (her choice people, she says it saves paint to do it with a brush and not a roller, and since she did the whole room with one gallon, I'm going to go ahead and agree with her).Thanks, mom. I miss you already.
