Revamp On A Budget!

I have no idea what possessed me to head up to Ikea on a weekend, but I made my way to Maryland this afternoon in search of a new duvet cover.  Note to self:  The Ikea in Maryland is much closer than Potomac Mills.

I wandered through the store and am happy to say that I was successful in finding new bedding.  My old duvet cover was just getting gross and worn and little holes were forming, so it was time to toss it.  I wanted to stick with my blue & brown thing, especially since I have a brown framed headboard that can’t be changed, and I fell in love with “Ofelia Skal.”

Another awesome thing about the set is that it’s totally reversable, so if I want a white background with the blue circles, I can change it up.  The duvet cover and 2 pillow shams cost a whopping $29.99.

I was also in desperate need of new lamps for my bedroom, and I found really cool and unique lamps for my nightstands.

So just by changing my bedding and lamps, my room has a totally new effect, and all for just $56!

The final result!
