How to 50 Shades your Bedroom

If you are looking for a decorating project that doesn’t require a lot of time or money, please watch my newest YouTube video. It is a very short slide show and will not take too much time to watch. Note that there is zero sewing involved and more time was spent shopping than actually completing the project. January white sales would make a 50 shades bedroom even more affordable.

So much to write about and so little time. Our daughter is in her second year of veterinary school and my mother will be going on six years since her major surgeries. When she was staying with us during her recovery, we had decorated our guest room with colors that she liked. Now it’s time for a makeover. I thought about a modern theme that adults would like, but not look geriatric! I decided to make a 50 shades bedroom, since we have no little children or grandchildren. We also have no dogs or cats. Although, our daughter will be giving us a grand-bird soon. More about that next year!

My budget has been very thin. Not counting the new drape panels purchased from a bedding specialty store (which were on 50% clearance plus an additional 20% off with a coupon), and the fact that I already had six new pillows still in the original plastic packaging, my cost was about 25 dollars. I spent four dollars on gray pillow cases from a dollar store. Two new white pillow cases were purchased from a big box chain store for just under five dollars. From a thrift store, I purchased eight men’s ties for about two dollars each. After hand washing the ties and letting them drip-dry, I was ready to begin.

We have a metal bed frame, but if your bed is different you might gain an idea from the color scheme and theme of this room. Let this be your guide or inspiration.
