We all know its the most neglected room in the house right? Yep, been there, done that. Enough already! Time to get this show on the road!

So we painted it originally with this goldish-green colour. Great colour. But there was no plan and the room ended up being this mish-mash of colours, & objects and randomness and it wasn’t working. So… start again! This time, with a plan. Here’s how it worked out:

This was a budget makeover. The plan was to get the best bang for the buck with mostly paint and fabric.

Easy-peasy to make a few pillows by picking up a nice selection of fabrics and pillow filler. If you can sew a straight line, you can successfully make beautiful pillows on a budget!

The entire mood is different. Calm and relaxed come to mind. Not bad for a bedroom.

Easiest. Headboard. Ever. — MDF, foam, cotton baton, creamy vinyl, staple it all together, and mount it, you’re done.

I thought I might have a little more trouble with this window seat. But it turned out to be pretty easy! Buy yourself a piece of good quality foam (mine was 2″), add a layer of cotton baton for some extra softness and to dull the sharp edges of the foam. Then, I sewed the fabric cover by basically creating a fabric tube. One straight seam right down the middle (on the underside of the cushion). Work the cushion fill through your “tube” by snaking it aaaall the way through. Sew up each end nice and pretty, and it’s done!

Oscar is quite happy with his new favourite spot.
