Room Make-Over {On a Budget}

When I first started this little blog I said that I had just redone my room back at home and was going to post pictures soon.  Well, I guess it wasn't as soon as I had wanted.  It's been a work in progress, but it's been so fun to finally have a more mature-looking room because, let me fill ya in... before, my walls were lime-green and all decor was mismatched and didn't have a central theme. It realllllly needed help.  

Even though I'm in college and don't live at home currently, I will be moving back in May when I student teach in the fall.  That has been the justification I've given myself about updating my room, plus, I'll be able to put some of this decor in my future home someday!   

I didn't have a lot of money to spend when updating my room so I got a lot of things at garage sales or Good Will! If you're looking to save $$ when updating decor, don't forget to look at those kind of places- sometimes you can find amazing stuff!

 I wanted my room to have a girly, but simplistic, calming feel to it and I think I've definitely accomplished that! 

I found this quilt at Home Goods and thought it was literally perfection. The green wall hanging- $1 at a garage sale...score! (And the pillows...a lady I babysit for had these at her house.  I'd been eyeing them every time I went over there, so she gave them to me when she was getting rid of them!)  

This mason jar picture is my favorite thing I've ever bought.  Like ever.  It was exactly what I was picturing when I was deciding the "theme" to my room! I might have squealed when I saw it at Hobby Lobby.  I'm in love, plus it was 50% off!! 

This canvas is from Hob Lob as well, and is one of my favorite bible verses!

I found this at Good Will- I was just setting this on my bookshelf as a decoration but this little space on my wall looked lonely and thought this was the perfect spot!

Flowers are from a garage sale, as well as the mason jars.  

 I love love love the view from my windows. I feel so blessed to live and grow up in the most beautiful place in the world!! This is just fall perfection.

There you have it! I'm so happy with how my room turned out- now I can't wait until I have a home of my own to decorate :)
