You may remember my Passover centerpiece post where I explained that my daughter and her husband make up the team of Chabad Nation, serving the needs of Jewish students in Amherst, Massachusetts. Some of these students often spend the night if they live too far to walk home on the Shabbat or a Jewish holiday. So, it's not unusual for them to have students sleeping over every week.
The nightstands and bed frames were hand-me-downs so nothing matched. Small budget? No problem!
I decided to keep the Ikea duvet bed covers since they were only a few years old and I liked the pattern. I went to many stores looking for curtain panels but they were too pricey and then I found these at Lowe's...
The price was right and I knew I hit the jackpot when the college girls asked if they were from Anthropologie!
The lamps were from a thrift shop, which I blogged about back in March...
The bedside tables were bought at Target and enhanced with thumbtacks...
The apple green color finishes off the look and add polish to the beds. Huge difference, right?
I made the bed skirts out of plain off-white curtain panels. These was important because they covered the bed frames which were all different..
Here is the cost run-down:
Bedding: already owned
Curtain panels: $60.00
Two bedside tables: $25.00
Two lamps: $7.00
Lamp shades: $30.00
Panels for bed skirts: $30.00
