As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have been looking for frugal ways of decorating. I decided to take an idea from Pinterest for a little behind-the-bed decoration for our master bedroom. First, I found this old window pane at Vintage Village and cleaned it:
Next, I chose to decorate it with scrapbook paper instead of fabric since it would be cheaper. I just used paint tape to hold it down. Not the prettiest background, but it got the job done:
Here is what our bedroom looked like when I first moved in. The quilt was my old college quilt that was a little small (twin) and a lot girly:
Here’s what our room looks like now:
Voila! I’m still trying to decide if I like the colors I chose, since it seems a little bright, but I can easily change it if I want. In case you’re curious about the rest of the decorations… the quilt at the bottom of the bed was a wedding gift from my mom using childhood dresses (plus a few modern patterns), and the white bedding and pillows are from Pottery Barn. The curtains are from Bed Bath & Beyond and I painted the art in the corner at Wine & Design class. It’s still a little girly (sorry J!) but I love it. :)
If you want to reduce heat & lower the electricity bill at home, installing Maricopa Window Tint is the best solution.
Overall, a very easy DIY project. The best part is it only cost me $17.50, and I bet you can get it cheaper by just finding an old window or a new one from https://www.expertsashwindows.co.uk/ on the side of the road.
