I am finally done!!

As with every DIY project it takes some time!! You can go back and follow this journey from beginning to end, with out interruptions if you want. Here are all the links: For me the savings and the beauty totally equal the Happiness Factor! If you're new to Batchelors Way, I do just about everything on extremely small budgets by buying used items and sale items but with out sacrificing taste. Let's start by going back to where the room started. You can go here to read more about where we started and read about the floor plan change. I know nothing too disgusting, but nothing exciting either! Oh take a mental note of the mirror and dresser. There's my ceiling fan. Without further ado let's see how this Master Bedroom turned out!! Ta da! Scroll down through all the pictures and then once you have checked it all out scroll back up and I'll tell how I created this on a budget! Each point has a link for more info! Revamped existing lamps with spray paint. Used mirror I already had.

When I showed you the guest bedroom’s new bedding a couple weeks back, some of you guys asked about the upholstered box spring.

I hadn’t really planned on posting about it because I’ve seen a few other tutorials out there on how to do it. But, since you asked, here is how I made my upholstered box spring. And of course, it’s no-sew. If I don’t have to sew – I don’t! First off, why didn’t I just use a bedskirt? Materials (this was for a full size box spring): -I had two yards of this fabric and had a good bit left over. -Sharp scissors -Staple Gun -Hot Glue Gun -Measuring Tape Step One: Take your mattress off your bed. Step Two: Cut out squares for the corners of your box spring. Step Three: Use a staple gun and staple the fabric to the bottom of the box spring on the corner leaving plenty of fabric to cover the top of the corner. Hot glue the top of the corner piece onto the box spring. Step Four: Now, you are going to cut rectangles to cover the sides of your box spring.

Step Five: Hello, everyone!

This has been a crazy week for me and I finally have a little time to share with you a change we made a couple of weeks ago to my daughter's bedroom. She took some much needed time off work and we have spending some nice time together. Of course, a little shopping had to be included in our mother/daughter time. The truth is we went to Ross looking for a basket and we came out with a cart full of things and no basket. :) Anyway, this is what we found, a beautiful comforter set, that, btw, we were NOT looking for. But it was love at first sight for her and even more when we checked the price.Could not believe our eyes! For $35,00, this set included a very nice and thick queen comforter, bed skirt, two pillow shams and three decorative pillows. The best part was that when we got home, we realized it went perfectly with the color scheme she already had, so nothing accent pieces had to be purchased.

And that is all the changes we made.Total cost of this project was $55.00.
