When my lil' sis told me she would need my help to decorate her room at her NEW HOME my mind went into overdrive. For weeks I scoured stores, yard sales and thrift stores gathering all the little details that I was sure would make the perfect space for her to call her own. So when I was FINALLY able to put together the long anticipated finishing touches, I stood back and beamed. Knowing that my sister loved it just as much as I did, well that was all I had hoped for.

View from the doorway.

$1.50 wall art at Goodwill becomes a jewelry holder.

Another Goodwill "Dollar Day" oils.

Vintage bridesmaid dress from a yard sale for $4.
(That's what we paid for the hanger!)

Brass lamp, perfectly matching yellow shade, AND light bulb $5 from D.I. (Deseret Industries)

2 Tiered table from Alexis' old room with a new paint job.

Dish for jewelry and loose items - Goodwill

I say count birds not sheep. ($1.50 at Goodwill)

I made this headboard from fabric found at, you guessed it, Goodwill ($3.99)...left over batting from a previous project, and $2 worth of wood from Home Depot. That's a total of 6 dollars!

The 2 handstitched floral pictures are from yard sales and I were $1 each.

I filled embroidery hoops (yard sales...for pennies) with fabric from my collection and added 3 plates found at Goodwill. (just over $1 for all three)

My sister found this dresser on KSL (already painted that matching orange!) for only $25!

Alexis and I snagged this Lennon poster at TJMaxx for $29.99.

Chotchkies from yard sales and D.I.

Books from Alexis'/Selina's collection

To add drama I hung a vintage lampshade from the recessed light. (yard sale find for $2.50)

The entire room's color scheme and look was built from this FABULOUS bedding.
(Liberty of London for Target $59.99)

The pink and green pillows were the splurge. (other than the new 32in t.v.)
(Pink - $29.99 & Green - $19.99 both from TJMaxx)

Vintage orange pillow in velvet - $3 from Goodwill.

Yellow sheet set - Ross $24.99
