A few pictures of my spare bedroom all for under $150.00

-Large dresser and night stand that belonged to my parents was repaired and painted black by hubby and me.
-stacking boxes purchased at thrift store for $1.99 for all five.  I added scrapbook paper to the lids  to coordinate with the room.
-small frames with family pictures purchased at yard sales for $.50 each.

-black candles purchased hobby lobby clearance isle $2 each

-sheet music candle that I made with sheet music purchased from thrift store for $1, a candle from Walmart $3, some old ribbon and an antique button. (I copied this idea from Pottery barn catalog)
-sheet music coaster is a leftover ceramic tile and my signature "O" purchased from hobby lobby clearance isle for $.49 tied on with black ribbon.

I love remixing old with new.  The dresser and night stand along with all the old family pictures are very special to me.

 I like copying ideas from catalogs using items I have around the house and I love to sew, so making pillows and curtains is my "therapy."

I hope you enjoyed my spare bedroom redo or as my Granddaughter calls it "HER ROOM."
