It runs in the family

Remember a few posts ago I told you how my sister bought a crazy expensive piece of distressed wood from Restoration Hardware?  Well she's done me proud and definitely made up for that misstep!  She is about to have a baby and has moved her two boys into the same room.  She fell in love with this room from Serena and Lily.


But refused to pay their $1028  price tag!  So she DIY'd it and look how cute it turned out!




She wrote about it over at her blog so I stole her pics and cost breakdown.  Here it is!

Twin Duvet and (7 yards of Ikea fabric )...................    $56.00
Euro Sham (made from left over duvet fabric).............................$ 0.00
Twin Quilt (from Target --included regular sham! Bonus!).............   $29.00
Initial pillow- Yet to be made! (but lets be honest, my boys already have two more pillows than they use on their bed so I am sure that will get made sometime between now and their next room make over!)
Sub Total (for new bedding)/...............................................   $ 85.00

Even if I include the accessories-I come in $402.00 LESS!:
Frame(Ikea) ......................................................................$ 14.99
Letter.................................................................................$ 3.00
Bookshelf (is really a picture ledge from Ikea)...............................$ 9.99
Grand Total Room Make-over........... ..........$112.98

AMAZING!  Now can I borrow mom to sew me some pillows for my living room please!

P.S.  My sister sells the most adorable baby stuff so go check out her etsy shop and keep your eyes out for a giveaway from her shop next week!
