Master Bedroom Part 3 - The Reveal

I finished our master bedroom on Friday just in the knick of time.  I think I was closing our door and walking downstairs as Andrew was pulling into the garage.  Phew, just barely.  I still have a few things to do such as decorating the ledges (I figure this takes time though), adding something to the walls above our nightstands, adding pictures to the frames throughout the room, buying the new bedroom furniture and just adding those small little finishing touches, but the overall room is done.  So I hope you like it as much as I do.
The color is so much better than before.  I used Laura Ashley's Taupe 4 from Lowe's.

Our little sitting area.  It's not very big, but we like it.
I added ribbon to the lampshades, but I think I want to undo that and just cover them with a chocolate brown fabric.
I wasn't so sure of the bedding when I first started putting it together, but once it was all done I really liked it.

A master bedroom makeover isn't complete without fresh flowers.
The coral and starfish that we brought back from Florida.  A little piece of the beach just for Andrew.

One of the first things Andrew said to me was that he was surprised I was able to do all of this and still keep us fed and the munchkins in diapers without going over my monthly budget.  Well I guess he just underestimates the thriftiness of me.  I was actually quite pleased with how little this makeover cost.  So here's the breakdown of the stuff I bought specifically for this makeover:
Bedding - $84.00 (marked down from $320.00)
Window Hardware - $40.00
Window Treatments - $20.00 (I got the panels on clearance for $4.98 a piece - 75% off)
Mirror - $20.00 (marked down from $80.00 at Lowe's)
Lamps - $24.00 (they were on clearance at Lowe's for $12.00 each)
Chairs - $36.00 (thrift store makeover)
Paint - $26.00
Accessories - $17.50

Total - $267.50

A lot of stuff I found when shopping around our home such as the art pieces, candles, end table, lamps, shades and other decor items.  Most of it was still in the basement from when we moved, so I was happy to finally be using it.
