This room belongs to my "adopted" brother, who lives with us for 5 months out of the year. I'm so mad because I cannot find the before pictures, but trust me, it was bad.
I joked that it was where old furniture went to die. It was ugly. It had builder beige on the walls ( in flat, EEK ) along with furniture I had intended to refinish, recover etc. I finally just bit the bullet, tossed the crap and bought new.
It was a relatively cheap makeover though! I wanted a very very clean feeling room, and to keep it masculine I stuck with dark finishes but light fabrics.
There's a lot of Ikea in this room, as you'll see. The Bed and Nightstands(craigslist ), Wall Lamp, Ottoman (free on the side of the road ) Navy Pillow Cover, and Sofa are all Ikea.
Speaking of Lamp...isnt she a beaut?
These cozy Euro Shams are via Pottery Barn clearance, I scored BOTH for $22 shipped.
P.S. Cheapest places for Euro Inserts is Overstock.com
The room was flip flopped for a long time, I had the bed in this living area but this arrangement is far better.
Frames are Ikea Ribba, Table was custom, Chair was Craigslist $15, Pillow Nordstrom Clearance, Lamp was Marshalls Clearance.
The sofa was nearly brand new off of Craigslist, It's Ikea, scored for $100 and the quality is pretty great.
Hiding under the table is the rolling Ottoman I recovered ( read about it here )
I found this guy on clearance for $29 ( reg $139 at World Market )
And finally these Bamboo Roman Shades from JCP.com were $18 a piece!
The paint is my all time favorite grey, Dolphin Fin. It's also used in my daughters room.
