Total Cost to redo Owen's room

$332.50  Not too shabby, eh?  Being able to DIY most of the things in his room and using what I already had on hand, helped keep costs low.

*Frames were already on hand, but I like to purchase them at Michael's (with coupons), Target, or thrift stores.

Did I forget something?  That's so easy to do with my brain.  Just let me know, and I'll fix it.



  1. Girlfriend! That looks great!

  2. Where did you find the handles for the dresser or where they part of the dump find?

    1. I bought the handles long ago on Etsy (can't remember the shop name), but you can easily find them on any French Provincial dresser. I hope that helps!

  3. The little gold whale! I must have one. Great room, love the mirror and the soothing blue/grey mix. Now considering this color scheme for my little guy's room...

  4. Came over from YHL...props to you for this room!! I'm LOVING the shelves and am having trouble finding them on Ms. White's site. Anyway, Owen (I have an Owen too) is a lucky boy and you are quite simply a decorating/crafting inspiration. I've been having a ball looking at past posts. Sorry work, you just got kicked to the curb. :) Thanks for sharing.

    1. Looking at home stuff is always way more fun than work!! Owen is a great name ;) Thanks for the comment love!

  5. Wow! Love the room:)

  6. This is so cute! I love the bunting and the accent wall - great ideas!

    1. Thank you for including that link here in the comment section as well!

    Please post a tutorial for the Marimekko Sunrise art. I love it!

    1. Thank you! I would love to, but I do not feel comfortable sharing that because the work looks really similar to the one in the link. If it were an original design by me, I wouldn't mind sharing a tutorial. I hope you understand.

  9. wow, love the chevron blanket!

  10. Love the You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Gray print...please post details....thanks! room looks amazing!!

  11. Your work is dynamite!

  12. Love this!! How did you accent the lamp shade? Was that ribbon or fabric?

  13. obsessed with the pallet wall!!!!

  14. Are you willing to share how you did the mirror? Or if not the finish since it looks similar to the link, maybe how you framed/hung it? I have a frameless mirror from a dresser that I'm dying to do something with, but I'm scared to try to hang it, even if I end up figuring out how to glue or attach molding around for a frame...

    The room is beautiful!

    Wow! I love everything about this room! I can't stop looking at the photos!! Any chance you remember where you got the fabric for the curtains or is that paint?? Again, L.O.V.E!! :)

    So happy you were featured at YHL so I could find your blog!!

    Ashley :)
