Buddy Pass - Price My Space

Some people say the best part of traveling is coming home. So I thought it might be fun to join Nesting Place for a little game! Show us a room in your home and share what you spent on it. Click here to read the rules and link up. Here is my room:

Being newlywed and living in an apartment gives little reason and little budget for making the bedroom look nice. But that doesn't mean I don't try. Here is what it looks like so far. Estimated price $1000.

The biggest chunk of money was the bed. It's really nice!! We went all out on it because well we do spend half our life sleeping on it. The bedding and the curtains were the next highest. I saw the curtains at Z Gallerie shortly after we got married and I HAD to have them. At $50 a panel they were way more then I ever imagined I would pay, but after my third trip to admire them I finally gave in. Money well spend in my book, they are still gorgeous!

I found all of the picture frames at odd and end places and painted them. None of them did I pay more than $5 for. Eventually I want to get more and scatter them across that entire wall.

My second favorite part of this room is 'my corner'. The table was a hand my down from my mother in law. The frog candle holder was a gift from my grandma. I used scrapbooking supplies, that were also a gift, to make the pictures stand out and help tie in the color scheme. I got the lamp at Target for $10. The shade was pink on the bottom which was cute but didn't match. So I pulled out the scrapbook paper again to cover it up. I also applied a rub on phrase that says "Living a Fairy Tale". And the books, one is an old one Hubby had before we got married and the other one was on sale at Borders for $5.

So there's my room. Not perfect or nearly finished but it's got a good start. If you have pictures of your home you'd like to share write a post and link up. Also if you feel like sharing the prices of things be sure to link up at nesting place too!

I am not a world traveler, researcher, writer or photographer. I have never been to most of the places I write about. I basically copy and past the information that people submit to me. All copyright is to remain with the featured blogger.

I can't guarantee that all information is accurate or up to date. As some experiences have happened in the past with some memories and emotions mixed in.

My posts are short and sweet, I can only give you a small glimpse inside the featured place. Knowing there is much more to a place than a few paragraphs, I will write about the same place multiple times if anyone would like to submit their view on it as well.
