This entire room redecoration was about $185. Hooray for Ross.

I finally put up the plaques I got in Chichen Itza. One is the medicine man, and the other a warrior. The shelf and candles are new.

This is a plate holder I decided to use as a jewelry rack.

Curtains, bedding and wall decorations are all new.

New painting. Craig doesn't care for the girly bedding, but I like it. :)

Overall, I think the new stuff will look good in the new room, though we might get more neutral bedding that Craig doesn't think is "Too Girly". I also already had those goldish mirror ladies.

Is this the new house?
I love how your mirror fairies are reflecting off the other wall.

Nope, we can't move into the new house until Aug. 18th. This is my bedroom, but I was ready for a change and wanted to get things that would look good in the new bedroom. It is a light khaki color in the new bedroom with white moulding also.

I love it. Especially the Mayan plaques, but you probably saw that coming. :)

Re: very kewl....do you do professional decorating consulting?

Thanks! I'm so excited to get to do all of the rooms in our new house, but it will be slowly as we don't have furniture for most of them yet. I'm totally inexperienced at doing any decorating, but one thing I've enjoyed doing is watching shows like "Sell this house" and "Buy Me" where they will take a house that looks crappy and make it over in very inexpensive ways. This is a great resource for getting ideas. Also, if you pick a color palette first, that helps pull any room together. I love having cable sometimes, even if I do watch it when I have insomnia.

me too! It was a great set and the fabric feels nice, but it was missing the sheets that were supposed to go with, so the whole set was $50 instead of $119 which it was marked with. Craig doesn't like it much, but I'm hoping he will warm up to it.

I tried to repeat the spirals in the bedspread elsewhere in the room. I think it's fun! I hope she likes it. I really love the fact that it is cheap. Because of the new house, I don't have much money to spend right at the moment.
