Due to our impending November arrival of our second daughter, we decided to make my sewing room into our 4 year old daughter's bedroom, and the new baby will have her old room. Ally wanted the theme of her new room to be horses, and she wanted it to be blue.
It soon became apparent that this low budget makeover was going to be blowing the budget if I purchased premade bedding so after brainstorming, I decided to make a quilt out of banadanas! It was a very easy and low cost way to get the look we were going for.
To start adding in the horse theme, I took two pictures that I had photographed during one of our trips to Assateague, Maryland and had them blown up into canvases, thanks to a special at ArtsCow. The canvases cost me a total of $16 for the two of them with free shipping.
I was very impressed with the quality of ArtsCow and they do have some great specials and credits. Shipping was a little slow and can be expensive if you don't get a deal on free shipping. They are located in Hong Kong hence slow shipping times. I framed both canvases, one frame I had already, the other I picked up at our local Goodwill for $2.
To carry on the cowgirl theme, I made a "rodeo" sign using a piece of scrapwood my Uncle was throwing out and used a stencil from my Cricut. Quick and easy, just stained the wood, stuck the vinyl stencil to the wood and spray painted it. The white hat was my late grandmother's so it has sentimentle value and the brown hat is one from my daughter's 2nd birthday party. The rack was bought at an antique store a couple years ago.
Total cost spent so far... $76
I still have some things that I want to add such as these bookshelves from Knock Off Wood (waiting for our 90 degree weather to break) and possibly make a new bed if I can get a great deal on wood , a nightstand, pictures and more accesories, but so far I LOVE how it looks!
