She {hearts} Creating Frugal Home Decor

new_0456Being frugal doesn’t exactly make decorating easy, but it can be very rewarding. It just takes some creativity and time.

I’ve known I wanted new bedding for a couple years now, but I never came across anything I loved more than what I already had. Recently though, we took the plunge and purchased a king size mattress/box springs {still saving for the bed frame} but for now, it’s just fine on the floor. So, I had to get new bedding.

I’ve always loved white. It’s a happy clean color. I thought maybe if it’s in the bedroom {and not even remotely close to where the kids eat} we’ll be okay. So far, so good.

 1. my DIY revamped lamps here

2. pillow covers made out of plain white pillow cases using the envelope technique {super easy} here

  • for the leather details on the pillows, I used re-purposed leather {old skirt, thrifted}
  • glued black velcro on the leather, then cut out triangles, and found a ‘stache {clip art} online to use as a stencil
  • sewed the white {opposite} velcro on the pillow, this way, I can wash {and bleach} the pillow cases when needed
  • they don’t look bright white because I covered some dark blue pillows I already had {for now; eventually I’ll get some white pillows… IKEA isn’t as close as it used to be, sigh}

3. coffee filter wreath via none other than Martha Stewart here

4. old used canvas found at thrift store {may have been a painting of a sunset}

  • I painted over it {sorry, artist that painted it back in the 80’s, it was time}
  • then hubby spray painted the numbers/letter using black spray paint, and number stencils found at hardware store {of course your numbers will mean something to you}

5. old frame/chicken wire, stapled on back

I’m sure I’ll get tired of my hipster pillows and add something different to them before too long, but for now I love them!
