We have a really nice spare bedroom in our home.  It has three windows together that face our backyard. We have some nice large trees in the back which gives it a park-like feel. The room is very bright and airy, especially when the windows are open.

The furniture is not new and I really could not afford any, but I did a few inexpensive things to give the room an update.

I moved a small white desk to the bedroom from my basement, and placed it in front of the windows.  Actually a perfect spot for a desk because of the light.

Updating a bedroom.

I purchased an inexpensive chair at T.J. Maxx for $59 for the desk, and added at few things I had to pull it all together.


Creating a special bright desk area.As you can see I added some boxwood greenery, that you can find at Target, a small clock, a photo of my sweet son, and I purchased a basket tray at Michael’s Crafts using a 50% off coupon, which made the basket only $7.50.  I found the bright green basket trash can at Home Goods.

I really love the basket tray, it actually matched the chair, and I used it as a catch-all for so many things I may use at the desk.

Simple basket tray to organize desk area.Love it!  Don’t you????

I made the little jar with the green polka dot knob out of an old candle jar, I will share how in a later post.

I thought about a small lamp, but haven’t found one I really like for the right price.  I will keep looking!

I placed a toss pillow in the chair to tie the desk area to the rest of the room.

Adding color to a bedroom.You will notice that I used a white quilt on the bed as I talked about in my post last week, June 4th.

By using the white quilt I can always change the room colors at little cost.  I purchased the bright colorful pillows and bed pieces at Home Goods some time back in the sale aisle.

I think my inexpensive update turned out nice.

Simple and I’m loving it!

Ready for some guests to stop by and spend the night!
