Change One Thing

Growing up, my mom had a saying, "Poor people have poor ways." This was just her way of saying, use what you have and don't spend a bunch of money. She was green before green was cool! Who knew?!

I have been dreaming about redecorating my master bedroom. I have a plan, and I am on the lookout for inexpensive items to help me achieve this particular style. But in the mean time, I've been trying to use what I have and be creative.

So last week, I had a crazy idea to flip over the quilt on my bed. I thought this may give me a fresh new look, that would buy me some time why I dream & shop! So here is the before:

And here is the after:

And here is the cutest little pillow I found at Kohls for $8.50. It was originally $49.00. (Seriously, who would pay $49.00 for a decorative pillow?)

So I guess that was really two things. Still, it only cost about $8.50! And to be honest, I love it. Change is good. Especially, when it is cheap!

Looking forward,

P.S. Be sure to check back tomorrow! I will be asking you to share an answer to one of the Friday Five Questions!
