On a Thrifty Thursday, a couple weeks ago I was astounded at Donna of Funky Junk's bedroom makeover using all thrifty finds and a lot of creativity. Donna's bedroom is a cozy comfy dream come true. I thought it deserved a second look!
Donna was so sweet to agree to share her cozy little nest today on Thrifty Thursday.
Donna, please take us on the tour!
A happy surprise. I LOVE the extra colours peeking out on the paint ladder rungs after sanding.
You won't find this bed neat, tidy and symetrical. This bed is about rumpled crumpled comfy bliss.
Random clear jars sitting on an authentic stamped post highlight twinkling tealights.
An old weathered table top becomes the ultimate charming and sturdy bed tray.
An old weathered pedistal table and shabby bench team up with a couple of mirrors in a little nook. More on this part HERE.
Before #2. (sign is in my son's playroom now)
And finally... After.
Confession time. I had NO budget for a new bedroom. But I wanted something shabby white, so I had to dig through my garage to find these things and make them work. Nothing, and I mean, nothing in this room is retail new except for the curtain rod I simply made out of a partially rusty (works for me!!) steel rod. Gate was from the dump. Door was from a burn pile. All else was from thrift stores. Aside from the odd sheet or pillowcase I've been gathering from the thrifts on an ongoing basis, this room was totally created with things I already had on hand.
For today, the new look is unique, casual, elcectic, eccentric even, very me and...
... the cat REALLY likes it. :)
(I'll be sharing some how-to's in December, after my Christmas show)

Thank you Donna, for sharing your private space today at Tales from Bloggeritaville's Thrifty Thursday! I am highly impressed with your "white trashiness"! Your bedroom truly reads as wonderful treasures picked up here and there, and heirlooms handed down from one generation to the next. This is what I love about thrifting. This is a perfect example of repurposing and reusing. Amazing! I am with the cat-the room looks scruptious and I can just imagne plopping in that bed with kitty and coffee! Heaven! Again, my sincere gratitude to you for sharing!!
You can find more of Donna's Funky Junk at her own blog, where creativity abounds.
