Create A Designer Room On A Budget

     It's inspiriting to look through designer magazines and see all the beautifully decorated rooms.  Of course, they are created with very high-end fabrics, carpets, furniture, and accessories.

     But, you don't have to spend thousands and thousands of dollars to create a room with a designer's touch.  It's easier than you think to pull together a beautifully coordinated room.

     Let's use a bedroom as an example.  This room has of course the bed, a dresser, maybe an armoir, a chair, and two windows.

    The first thing you need to do is purchase pretty  sheets.  For this project, you do not want to buy  plain sheets.  Find a pretty pattern that makes you   feel good.  When you find a set of sheets that you  like, buy two extra flat sheets, preferably in queen or  king size. 

I often buy my sheets in Boscov's Department Store because they always have a good value.

     Ok. Now is when the fun begins.  Of course you're going  to make your bed with the sheet set.  Now, you're  going to use the two addiitional flat sheets your  bought to create that designer's look.

     Each sheet will become the window treatments.  You  can also purchase some pretty tie-backs or use  ribbon that coordinate with the curtains. Please see  the page Simple Curtains for instructions on how to  sew the curtains.

     Then with fabric left over, you can make a new seat  cover on the chair  (For help with this, visit the Seat  Cushions) or Throw Pillows to  accessorize your bed.

     Another example of creating a pretty room on a budget is in the dining room.  Check out How To Sew Chair Back Covers, and How To Sew Table Runners.  These projects are quick and easy to do.  The results are dramatic.
