. . . . . . .Transformation: Bedroom Oasis

OK, it's time to share another transformation project! :) This was a project that took place over about 4 months. I loved my previous bedroom set, but we got a new bed a while ago and the bedding was too big for the new mattress, so I decided it was time for a transformation project!!

This is my bedroom as it looked a few months ago. The bedding and accessories area all in green and the cedar chest at the foot of the bed is in a purple accent color.

It took me quite a while to find a new bedding set that I liked, I think I bought 4 sets and tried them out on the bed before I found "the one". The best part about it is I got the bedding set (and valances) for a great deal! It was a $500 set, on clearance for $160. A week later, it went on "closeout" and the price dropped to $42 for the 18-piece set! I contacted the company and they refunded the difference! Wow!

I purchased more accent pillows, a throw (blanket) for the bottom of the bed, and got fabric to recover my cedar chest and make a pillow. Then I got a slipcover for my wing-back chair so it matched the new decor. I purchased wall sconces and finished my art framing project, and now....

I have a brand new master bedroom oasis!








The TOTAL project cost me just about $200!! I am thrilled with the results and I still love to relax in my room!
