i told you all that i'm moving into an apartment soon with my best friend, and while i have such a small budget for the furniture and things i can buy for my room, i'm convinced that i can still get things i like with a cohesive feel that'll make my bedroom feel like home without spending a ridiculous amount of money. i've already found a vintage iron headboard and frame that included a queen mattress set (don't worry, it's clean, i've checked it out), an old chair that i can reupholster with a fabric i want and save hundreds of dollars otherwise that I would have spent on that ridiculously expensive chevron Urban Outfitters chair. i've found countless DIY's for pillows and little things to hang on walls. i'm planning on using frames that i've found for cheap to make a cluster of pictures on one wall, reupholster a chair with either a solid color and find chevron printed pillows for it or do it entirely in chevron, use my plain white down comforter and play with different pillow DIY's, and find some fun end tables. i like color, but in small doses for a bedroom. i have no idea how this will all come together but i think i have a vision and a vision i like. my manta, however, is cheap cheap cheap. minus the bed, i'm not spending over $40 on anything. the chair i was talking about? $35. each frame i found? $1 each. it's the small details.
