Price my space at Nesting Place



The Nester is having a "Price my space party." I decided to use my daughter Maddie's room to share, as most of her stuff was found at a bargain price.

The white bed was found at a rummage sale for $20.00, the pink bedspread at an estate sale for $6.00. Then there is my Pottery Barn Kids bedding. I love that blue bedding. I have had some of this stuff since crib size. I bought it all at 1/2 price or less and picked up a few pieces on Ebay for next to nothing. Basket was an Ebay find, it is Pottery Barn Kids and matches my blue bedding, I bought 2 for under $10.00. The rocking chair was a 1st birthday gift and the pillow was a rummage find for $.50.
The white dresser was my sons that we bought unfinished for around $100.00. Pink bird house and Madeline sign I picked up at TJMAXX on clearance. Both were scratch and dent and paid $3.50 for the bird house and $6.00 for the name sign. The lamp shade is the blue PBK again, and I added some pink ball fringe. I paid $5.00 for the lamp shade, the base is a candle stick base that I bought way back and painted it white.
White wire basket was $1.00 at Salvation Army, and the rabbit jar was a baby gift.




The scalloped shelf is from TJMAXX, it was chipped so I only paid $5.00 for it. I put a fresh coat of pink paint and it's as good as new. Wood rabbit was an after Easter find one year for 75% off.


This room is one of my favorite rooms in our house and one of the smallest. I love the way it turned out and it was all furnished on a budget of less than $200.00.

It's beautiful! I love the beadboard chair rail, it gives some dimension to the walls and the colors are so perfect for a little girl's room. Thanks for sharing!

Love your room!

I have an affinity for wainscotting-I'd put it everywhere if I could get away with it. I love that bedding! I'd put it in my own bedroom if my husband wouldn't die of girly-ness sleeping on it!

You did fabulous to stay under $200! And the room is so soothing.

I can see why it's your favorite!

I LOVE IT!!! I'm going to be decorating my two daughter's rooms this Fall on a very little budget. This gave me hope. You are so creative! I don't have an eye for this, but I'm going to try. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hello! Stopping over from the Nester's party! Wow! You did a great job and especially on that budget! So sweet.

Gotta love TJ Maxx! If I find the slightest imperfection I always ask for a discount and most of the time I am surprised by how much they will mark it down!
