Here are a few pictures to show you how it's coming along.
So far, it's cost me about $170.
- White paint and supplies - $65 (Actual cost is less because we used the paint at my brother's house too)
- Wallpaper, partial roll from a wallpaper store - $10
- Bedding picked up on sale at Zellars after Christmas - $50
- Throw pillows - $30
- Curtains bought for $6.88 each at local market store - $15
I bought the bedding on sale on a whim. It incorporated the purple I wanted to bring into the room, but several other colours, including the existing yellow and green on my walls. I lucked out last weekend, finding the sheer curtains, which matched the bedding perfectly.
All in all, I think my mom is quite happy with how this project is coming along. For myself, it's been a good opportunity to learn some decorating basics (painting panelling and wallpapering), while updating a room in which I've spent the better part of my life so far.
