One of the easiest and definitely the most frugal way to redecorate a room is to declutter it. I spent the majority of the day on Saturday decluttering and cleaning our bedroom. This meant I needed to work in the closet as well, because some things in the bedroom needed to be moved there. I cleaned underneath all the furniture, except for one that was too heavy for me to move. I plan to clean under it soon.
A white, summer weight blanket helped to lighten up the room. The colors of pink and brown in the room come from the quilt which is the inspiration piece. In the summer we remove the quilt at night, but when Fall comes, all we need to do is pull the quilt up over us.
The vintage chair was in the kitchen, but I think it looks nice here.
The painting on the mantel was inherited by my hubby. It was painted by a deceased family member. The colors in the roses and the frame go with the pink and brown colors in the room. The little white rabbit was made by my hubby's mother who did a lot of ceramics many years ago.
Do you see the painted over crack on the wall. These walls are made of plaster, which is one reason you don't see a lot of pictures and things on the wall. I do think it gives the room character, though.
Inside the fireplace is our wicker, fabric lined laundry basket.
I removed all the "junque" that was on my dresser and made this runner. Then I added the flameless candle, pictures and silk flower arrangement. These things were already in the room, I just rearranged them. Before, I had jewelry, perfume, a basket of nail polish and other assorted clutter on there. It was not attractive and made it hard to dust.
I have been saving this little bird's nest that the wind blew into the yard. Those "eggs" are marbles that I found in the yard too.
I had enough fabric left from making the runner to make the small pillow on the bed.
The Fan may not be pretty, but its a necessity! At least its small and a nice color!
A vase of pink Zinnias and the first Crape Myrtle blossom of the year.
In Flylady style, I am choosing a room and then concentrating on it until its clean, decluttered and decorated. I have a little more to do in the bedroom and the bedroom closet needs a Saturday of work too!
