Not long ago, I told you I was taking on the Family Dollar Home Makeover Challenge. With just $50 to spend, several bloggers, including myself, made over a room in our homes.
I decided to really stretch those dollars and decorate my bedroom–yes, spending just $50 at Family Dollar! I sometimes wondered what I was thinking, since that $50 probably would have gone further in a smaller space. I chose the bedroom though because as I mentioned in my earlier post, it was the one room of the house that had been neglected since we moved in.
I stuck to my original plan of redoing my bedroom, and by using some Family Dollar coupons, I even squeezed a few extra dollars out of my budget! In the end, I can say I made a huge improvement in the room.
The look my room had before was “just moved in,” although that wasn’t the case. It was just a lack of decorating. I wish I could put into words the change in the “feel” of the room after the makeover. It’s so peaceful and relaxing.
My Family Dollar purchases included curtain rods and new curtains to soften the window, a small water fountain on the night table, a lamp, picture frames, and a chocolate-colored faux-fur throw for the bed.
I also love that Procter & Gamble generously provided some of their latest Swiffer, Febreze, Mr. Clean, Gain, and other products to help me clean and freshen up my new space.
The Febreze Bedside Diffuser gives a light, fresh scent to my newly-redecorated room, and I like that it doesn’t take batteries or need to be plugged into an outlet. And, have you seen the Swiffer Sweep & Trap? I have a Swiffer Sweeper, but how did I not know about the Swiffer Sweep & Trap? It’s not only a Sweeper, it picks up larger pieces of dirt and debris off the floor with plastic rotating blades–without batteries or electricity.
