The Bedroom Redo. Get Your Sun glasses

If you like Color this one is for you!

Maybe because it’s winter or because we have a trip planned to Mexico, color took over and I love it.

Color Theme Set:

My only thought,  my choices needed to work with the attached aqua bath. I could work with this. What did I have? I had a bucket of tiles left over from a summer project all in the aqua color scheme.

What else did I have?

A white bedspread, a recent Christmas gift, this would work.

Three Kick to the Curb Items

A dresser , I would tile and paint to use at the foot of the bed

A kicked to the curb bench that fit perfectly in my alcove. (can’t make that up)

A small table painted and tiled with free tile from local store.

Off to Goodwill and Salvation Army I went. Usually when I go I have a general idea of what I am looking for . Sometimes I will see something that is perfect to complete a project that I am not even concentrating on.

My goal was to create two areas in my room. One to be bright and fun. Another corner for calm and relaxation and watching T.V. I wanted both to work together, and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money.

I envisioned Pottery Barn meets Crate & Barrel and they bump into Pier 1. A tall order but i was ready.

My first stop Salvation Army. I was lucky. I was in the store less than 5 minutes when I spotted this great velvet oversized chair. If someone ever sat in it I would be surprised, perfect condition. After speaking with the very nice man we decided on a reasonable price of $85.00. If you look on Pottery Barn web site you’ll see a similar chair selling for $1,600.   Salvation Army also added the two large brown floor pillows at 2 for $5.00.

Next purchases came from Goodwill:

Floor lamp – $ 29.99  bedroom lamp



 2 pillow shams – 2 for $5.00

4 flower prints – $12.00

wicker lamp – $9.99

Turtle picture – $4.99

1/2 price color of the week my cost $2.99








leopard throw – $9.99 Sears going out of business sale

Leather throw


I set out to work .  First I took care of the projects that needed to be created. Those I have already posted,( tiled dresser and bench.) From there it was just a matter of putting it all together.

The nightstand to the right of the bed was given the last of the tile. When I bought that bucket for $20.00 I never thought I would ever use it to complete so many projects.You’ll see it one more time in the bathroom and it looks GREAT.

Anything you see in the room that I don’t mention means it was something I already owned and just moved in to the room. I do this a lot . I like to rearrange things.

About Nancy

Hi Welcome to Discarded Diamonds. My name is Nancy and this is my web site. I find the most fabulous things at Goodwill, Salvation Army, Garage Sales and yes, even the trash. I've always been creative and my style has been a bit on the quirky side, so it's a perfect match. I think it's very important to re- use, re-purpose, and recycle. For the fraction of the cost of retail, I have beautiful clothes (that I am always complimented on) and wonderful home decorations. I hope you'll follow me and realize how fun bargain hunting can be. Just be careful, it's addictive.
