$100 Room Challenge: Bedroom Makeover Week 2

- Home Decor
Vintage White Curtains With Floral Embroidery

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I got out of schedule this week. So sorry. I had strong itching on Monday evening and then rashes showed up on both my hands. I thought it was another incident of chronic urticaria, but there was a surprise. It’s hand, foot and mouth disease. I have not slept for 2 nights in a roll and the itching is…oh my! No words for it! I pray that no one gets it from me. These were all the health news. Back to the makeover.
 This week, continuing the low budget room makeover, i changed the curtains and added an eye-catching decoration above our bed. I am excited to say that both of these cost me $0! Yes, $0…My mom had the curtain fabric, but has never used it. I was looking for white curtains, and there you have it! Our sheer white curtains, with white floral emroidery on them. We have floral pattern on our bedspread, also white on white. And my home office chair, i borrowed one form our dining chairs, has also floral upholstery, black and white.

But, the big star of this room is the decoration above the bed. You know those (affiliate link) expandable trellises fences with the artificial ivy, right? Well, i got one a couple of years ago, removed the plastic leaves and used them for decorating one corner of our balcony railing. I did not use a specific pattern, so it would look more real.  But, i did not throw away the fence. It’s been outside, in a corner and now is the time for it’s glory! Above the bed decorating with an expandable trelis fence!

So far, the cost for this low budget room makeover is 28$, for getting the cushions and fabric for the bed. Not bad! Next week i’ll tell you all about the bedroom lighting and our home office!

      Although we do have a big, bold headboard now, there was something missing,because it is one big wall. And that trellis worked!

      Thank you Tracy. We have a big headboard and the size of the trellis, i think, was good for that job.

    YAY for free curtains! They’re beautiful… and that trellis idea was simply brilliant!!! I would have never thought that wasn’t meant to be wall art. Awesome idea! Hope you’re feeling better soon and are able to get some much needed rest.

    That is a unique idea to use a trellis for decor above your bed! You could clip cards or art on it too! The curtains are lovely, I have white curtains all over my house! Thank you for sharing at Sweet Inspiration Zografia, hope your hands feel better!

    Zografia I think the trellis is such a great idea. It gives so much interest and texture to the room. And the curtains are also very pretty and in keeping with the rest of the room. I hope you are feeling better.
