Lucky's Room Budget Breakdown: An Update

Here is an update to this post from last week about our intended budget for Lucky's Room Redesign.

Our initial budget gave us $425 to make/purchase a long list of items for her room.  We also added $95 to that initial number by selling a few items on Craigslist this week.  These pieces of decor looked marvelous in our old home, but they didn't work in our new house.  (I paid $130 total for these items initially, so I didn't feel awful about making $95 on the sale.)

So our new running budget is $520 which makes me feel much more comfortable:)

Here is our updated 'Items to Purchase or Make' List:
1. Twin Bed Frame $10 Craigslist

2. Twin Box Spring $50 Brand New in sealed plastic bag from Craigslist (Bill was removing the plastic when I took this picture...see his shoe:) He's hiding from the camera):

3. Twin Headboard/Bed $29 Made with canvas frame, batting and fabric

4. New Bedding (Comforter, sheets, bed skirt): $90 in bedding and $15 bedskirt = $105

5. Night Stand $10.80 Goodwill

6. Another Lamp FREE (found in old nursery)
7. A furniture piece for toy and book storage
8. Another furniture piece just for fun
9. A desk chair for her desk built in $10.50 in Fabric, Chair FREE

10. Wall art

11. Accessories-Tray on night stand $12 at TJ Maxx
                       Orange picture frame by bed $6 Walmart
                       Brown Round Throw Pillow on Bed $10 clearance at TJ Maxx
                       Pink Desk Bulletin Boards $3 each x 3 with coupons Michael's =$9
                       Mushrooms from Gordman's on desk = $3 with coupon

12. A bigger rug $70 Marshall's

13. Curtain hooks that I posted about here. $10 Walmart

Total Spent So Far: $335.30
Budget Remaining for wall art, accessories and 2 furniture pieces: 184.70

It's going to be close!  Wish me luck and have a great weekend.
