Girls Room on a Budget

Hello! :)  How are you doing today?  How was your weekend?  We had an amazing weekend that including apple picking!!  That is one of my favorite things to do EVER!!!  We had a blast.

I showed you a couple recent posts of our house changes and then was inspired to do a whole home tour.

Today, is my daughter, Grace's room!  Her name is in my blog name after all, hehe!

The first room in our house to paint use our daughter's, room.  I always wanted a pink girl's room and so did Grace.  I was even more excited to find the perfect color paint in the "oops" section of Lowes paint department...SCORE!

I am also proud to say that I didn't have to buy even one item at full-price in her whole room.  Actually, it was all second hand or "new" from the Goodwill.

Her room is simple and girly!  I bought this bookshelf 9 years ago from a garage sale and we painted it white.

These baskets are also from a garage sale and are great for storage.

Again, this basket was from a garage sale for a dollar and again... great for storage!

Her American Girl dolls were actually mine when I was a girl.  

I saved a lot of my old things for her.

I just love these Pottery Barn Tins that I bought at a garage sale.  They are the cutest and she loves to keep her little "collectables" in them.

I love all the bedding!  She actually had 2 sets that we rotate.  We pillow and blanket (not used in photo) are Pottery Barn that I got from my neighbor.  She LOVES stuffed animals!  Pillow Pets are the favorite!!!  Her comforter on the bed is also from our neighbor and it is Laura Ashley.

Her shelf (actually a mantel shelf) is from a garage sale for $15 and I placed sweet flowers ($1 each) and some photos of her on it.  (The frame are also from a garage sale.)  

I am not kidding when I said that EVERYTHING was second hand!!  

We got married at 19 and bought this house when we were 23 so didn't have have any money left for furniture and things without using credit.  (We hate credit!!!)

This little dresser was $5 and I painted it white.  The tall standing lamp is Pottery Barn and was $15 from a GS (garage sale).  The other lamp was a gift from my Mom and the frames, baby crib, and chair  were also from garage sales.

Her nightstand was mine as a girl and her bed was my sister's.

I bought this Pottery Barn kitchen set for $30 from a garage sale and the little, white, doll clothes cabinet was from my Grandma. 

Also, her curtain was from a garage sale and rod and holdbacks were from the Goodwill.  She also has Pottery Barn flower rugs that I bought from a garage sale for 50 cents each... I know...CRAZY!

So, there you go!!

You can totally decorate your home without spending a lot of money! 

It takes time to put together a whole room from garage sale shopping and you might not find exactly what you were looking for but I am happy with how it turned out, Grace LOVES, and we saves a whole lotta $$$!!!

Do you shop second hand?  What is the best deal you found?

Have a great day!

Bonnie :)
