So let's get started!
See this little pile of lumber?
That built two beds. Total cost, with hardware? $150.00.
With conditioner, stain, sandpaper and dry cloths? $80.00.
We turned it into two of these beauties:
Are you still with me?
I ordered both J and W's bedding from Overstock.com. Total cost for two sets? $122.00. Shipped. Her bedding was complete - with sheets and pillowcase.
His was only comforter and sham. So I had to buy him some sheets. At Target. On Black Friday. $15.00. Pillows? $7.00. Fuzzy red blanket? $15.00.
Alarm clock on his desk? $7.00. We already had the light, the desk and the chair. Score!
Rug on the floor? $29.00. IKEA! Mattress on the bed? $149 - IKEA!
Dresser? $59.00 - IKEA. Shelves? $39.00 - IKEA.
Total for W's bedroom, including linens? $496.00. LESS THAN $500!!
OK - now J's room. Same deal - lumber, stain, bedding, alarm clock, fuzzy blanket.
Her rug was $49.00 (IKEA) and we also had to buy her desk ($17 - IKEA) and her lamp ($39 - Toys R Us). We already had her dresser. Her shelves were $40.
Total for J? $492.00! Again - less than $500!
So for less than $1,000, we completely outfitted TWO bedrooms. Two mighty stylish bedrooms I might add.
And they are done. Assembled, decorated, cleaned and ready for two kids to come have the best memories possible.
I can barely wait until Friday!
