Sarah's Bedroom Pt.3 (The Details)

THANK YOU all so much for your sweet comments on my daughter's room makeover!
In case you missed it.... You can find Part One (The Before) here  and Part Two (The Reveal) here.
Today I am sharing all the details of my daughter's bedroom makeover. I've gotten some questions and this post should answer most of them. If you still have any questions after this post feel free to e-mail me! 
Let's start off with the paint color we used....

We used Silver Drop by Behr in a satin finish. The sample looks a little more brown but in person it's a very pretty light gray! I wanted something neutral and clean looking and this color is just perfect!

1. I made these tissue paper poms! They are super duper easy to make! I will probably post a tutorial sometime soon. I am sure you either already know how to make them or you have an idea but it's always nice to follow pictures while you are making them so I will try to get a post together soon!
2. I custom ordered this sign from my friend Pam's etsy shop PB&J Creations. I LOVE IT! I Love all of her creations! I have a couple of her signs around my home :)
3. If you have been following me for sometime now you might recognize the two yellow pillows from the guest room/craft room makeover I posted a while back. The room no longer looks like that now but I reused a lot of the things in that room! The two yellow pillows are from The Lacey Placey and the lumbar pillow is from Marshalls which I found on sale! woo hoo! The sheets are also from Marshalls.
4. I bought this blanket last year at a thrift shop for $5 and later find out it's from IKEA! I wrote a post on this and other finds last year which you can find here. I used this blanket in our guest room for a while and now it is in Sarah's room. You might also recognize this blanket from my birchbox posts! :)

5. I absolutely LOVE paper lanterns! I purchased this one at IKEA for $5 and the pendant light kit was about $12 at Home Depot. It took my husband less than 15 minutes to install this and it makes such a big difference in this room!
6. Finding a rug for this room was a bit crazy! I kept searching online and everything was either too expensive or not right! Finally I decided to try and found this gorgeous rug with the exact colors I needed for this room at a great price! I even got a discount on it and free shipping! :)

7. This pretty lamp is from IKEA. (that's it, no big story! lol)
8. I LOVE this piggy bank! I searched on etsy for custom piggy banks for both my son & daughter and found Pretty Piglets whom you may remember from my giveaway week! Rachel was AWESOME! She matched the colors I asked for perfectly! 
9. This little basket was a garage sale and the little table is a goodwill find from my dad that he painted for my son's nursery. You can find a post about it here.
10. These frames are from IKEA and you can read more about this gallery wall in a post here. 
11. The plant is from IKEA and the milk glass pot I found at a Goodwill for $1.99! 
12. This dresser is also from IKEA. 

13. The pink buckets are from the dollar store and I just added some chalkboard labels on them.
14. This organizer was $9.99 at Marshalls.
15. The laundry hamper is from Ross and was $12.99.
16. I love white curtains! These curtains are from Target but I bought them off of Ebay though they were cheap and new. Cost me only $15 for the pair and that includes shipping!
17. This is actually the RAST nightstand from IKEA that I painted white. I wanted something to set this toy on and that could be used as storage. It was only $14.99! 

18. These bookshelves are actually IKEA spice racks but I found them at a Goodwill for $2.99 each. Everytime I would go to IKEA to look for these they would be sold out so when I found these two at Goodwill I snatched them right away! You can find the post on these here.
19. This basket/trunk is also a Goodwill find! It was $7.99 and it's the perfect size for this little wall. It stores all of my daughter's dolls! The sheep is actually a pillow. We purchased this at Costco and it came with a super soft blanket.
20. The mirrors are from IKEA but I also bought them at a thrift store because they were $1 cheaper and they were new. I painted them white and used them in our guest room before.

Now let's talk money! I was supposed to stick to my $100 budget but I think we went a little over!  
This is only for the things purchased, some of the items we already owned so those don't count. 
(estimating because I can't remember the exact amounts)
Gallon of Paint $30 
Rug $47.59
Lamp $19.99
Lantern $4.99
Pendant Kit $12.99
Piggy Bank $8
Sign $14
Sheets $19.99
Organizer $9.99
Pillow $7
Trunk $7.99
Landry Hamper $12.99
Buckets $3
Nightstand $14.99
Pot $1.99
Frames $21

TOTAL = $236.50

Whoops! We went a little over! lol
Not bad though! Most of the things purchased were either on sale or from Goodwill! :)


  1. Haha I totally shop like you! Although I wish we had a Goodwill around us... For all the things you were able to do in the room, I though you did an awesome job on staying around your budget! Close enough, right? ;)

    1. You could certainly glimpse your eagerness within the paintings you compose. The world wants for even more fervent writers like you who aren't aghast to say how they believe.
