As I mentioned in this post, I am working with my daughter to spruce up her guest bedroom. It’s a room she just hasn’t had time to tackle and I thought it would be fun to see what we could do for $500.
As you can see we have the basics: a bed, nightstands, lamps.
Lilly and I both like the boho vibe and while this furniture doesn’t necessarily suggest that, I think we can work around it. Since the sleigh bed is pretty traditional I plan to use the bedding and some pillows to bring in the modern feel.
And then as I was contemplating what we would do for art, this blog post regarding inexpensive art popped up in my feed from Emily Henderson. I love her blog; there are so many great pictures and ideas and ideas for decorating on a budget. And she lets her funny personality come through in her writing so it’s just entertaining to read.
I found so much to love in that post but settled on some prints from The Printable Studio. There is a variety of art and we had a hard time deciding on just two prints. But we finally chose these two.
I had already bought frames at Michael’s (40% off) so I knew I needed the size to be 11×14. Roseanne at The Printable Studio was very accommodating and had the files to me within minutes. There is a Fedex Office nearby so I went there for my printing. I selected white cardstock in a matte finish. They turned out great.
Here they are framed in the Michael’s frames. The total cost for both pictures is $65.50. I’m excited to see how they will look in the room.
And I am excited by this new discovery of how easy it is to have great art that is affordable. I have a lot of plans for some new art in my house.
I will have an update on the bedroom makeover later this week so check back here to see the progress.
