This room has served a variety of uses but most recently it was repository of junk. I had an eye towards making it useful with my last Ikea trip, so I kind of got to do my own Trading Spaces! This room is tough to photograph, it's tiny and the door is in a corner and the closet is next to it, so it's got a little mini hallway of its own that limits the view. After: It's actually brighter than the photos suggest--my camera just didn't like those lamps, I think. Bedding - $100 target Lamps - ~$12 each + $5 shade at Ikea Rug - $29 Ikea Curtains - $28 Wal-mart Curtain Rod - $18 on clearance Lowes Total = $213 Oh, plus... Bed/bedframe - inherited Antique sewing machine table - $20 or $40 at a garage sale I've STILL got the ironing board in there, I have new drapes and curtain rods for my daughter's room and the drapes still need the crap ironed out of them.. fun. Oh, and my pet peeve--previous owners of this house painted over the electrical outlets, so I'm taking the opportunity to switch them out in this room too. So that's another $10 or so into this room.
