My new bedroom

I have been very quite the last couple of days as I have been busy decorating my bedroom.

Here is a picture of how it looked before;

Here is the finished room;

ignore the drawers, they don't go there!

The chest of drawers in it's rightful place;

I don't have a wardrobe yet- mine collapsed after being fixed several times. So in the next couple of weeks that will be rectified and the room won't look quite so spacious.
To do this room makeover I have painted walls and ceiling with white emulsion, cleaned every surface, including shampooing the carpet;
That is the dirty water that has come out of the carpet- gross it was only done a couple of months back as well.

I made the curtains out of material I was given a long time ago and I have used the old curtains as liners to make them thicker so should provide less light in the summer months when I don't want to get up at 4 am thank you Mr Sunshine! and help retain the heat in the winter as this is one of the coldest rooms in the house.

pinning the curtains ready for  sewing.

This is the bit I hate, spacing the rings at the perfect gaps to make the eyelets.

This makeover was done on a teensy budget- £12 for the paint and the new duvet set cost me £5 in the sales. Everything else I had in the house already. So a total of £17 to makeover my bedroom. I love it and can't wait to go to bed now!
