Frugal Friday – bedroom redo

Number one son went away to college in the fall and I’ve been itching to get in there and spruce his room up. I started but then stopped. After he returned back to school for winter session I got in there and really did some work.  I forgot to take before pics but let’s just say that along with a big brown bed, he had a big brown dresser, big brown curtains and big brown comforters.  The room was dark and boy stinky.  I vacuumed up TOENAILS! ew!!

Ok so you’re grossed out and now you can see the basic tableau, if you will, that I’ve set up for myself. Right now we’re calling this the blue room and I’ve managed to start the room using repurposed items from other rooms. This cost me zero dollars so far.

Here’s the big ol honkin bed so far.  The quilt on the bed was a present from my great Aunt when I got remarried.

The quilt hanging on the hanging thingy was made for me when I was a young teenager by my Great Grandmother.

Mommy Allen, as we called her, was in her 80s when she made these for us “girls”.

The other half of the room is also a work in progress.

I’m trying to figure out how to recover the ugly director’s chair (I don’t sew) and after visiting Ikeahack.com

I’ve gotten some ideas for this Ikea dresser, but I dunno.

Any suggestions?
