My Dream Bedroom

Our bedroom has kind of been one of the neglected rooms in our house. I like what I have done with it using what I have, but we haven't really put much money into it. The bed is a $30 metal frame, and I made the tufted headboard for about $60. Our dresser is the same one I have had since I was like 10 years old. Our nightstands are plastic drawers from Wal-Mart, and our Ikea lamps have seen better days. Bedroom furniture is just too expensive and not in our budget right now, BUT that doesn't stop me from dreaming. I put together my dream bedroom on a design board. Here is what I came up with:



The bed is the Hudson Bed from Pottery Barn, and it is, of course, paired with my West Elm Bedding. The Linx Pillow is from Z Gallerie and I have been coveting that fabric for a while now. I want to make a bolster pillow out of it for my bed. The chair is Swoop Upholstered Accent Chair-Gorgeous Pearl from Target. Curtains are also from Target. I have wanted a glass lamp base for years now! Most of them are pretty pricey, for me that is, but Target has a reasonably priced Tear Drop one. I paired it with a fabulous Gold Chevron Lamp Shade, also from Target. (Can you tell I really like Target?) The side table is the Isala Side Table from Ikea. (I also really love the matching Isala Coffee Table.) Then to top off the room I would add a few decorative accents. The Ceramic Books and Faux Coral are from Z Gallerie. So there you have it! That is my dream bedroom. Maybe someday...

Good choices., especially that chair. I love the room you came up with. I love Target too, in there at least once a week.

My husband and I got that bed from PB a few years ago, because it was our favorite after looking forever... totally worth it!! We LOVE it!! And so far it's held up really well... 3 moves later! Love the whole room!

Someday will come for you...and I LOVE Target too. I have to say, just focus piece by piece and you'll get there. Then it isn't such a hit to the budget that we all have these days =)
