Well, I had a few hours this weekend to visit a couple of antique malls to try and find some furniture for my master bedroom makeover.

Trying to find furniture for this room is making me very nervous. I am so afraid I will buy something and then be disappointed with it.
I will be buying all of my pieces at antique malls or thrift stores.
Let me show you a couple of pieces of furniture that I liked when I went out this weekend.
Here are a couple of pieces that might work as bedside tables..
I love this piece. It is beautiful “as is” but would also look great painted white. I think it cost $90.00.
I liked this next little brown table. It reminded me of the bedside table that was in one of my inspiration pictures (below).

I also found a couple of dressers I liked…of course, I would paint them….
This one is my favorite…
Can’t you picture it painted black? It would look very similar to the dresser in my inspiration picture…
But I am actually thinking of painting it white and applying a glaze to it. I can’t decide.
Both of the dressers are in very good shape and are very well built.
Lastly, I found a couple of options for my armoire. I am looking for something in which we can hide our t.v., but I also need for it to be able to store some clothing.
Here are two options:
I like this one, but I think it may be too big and a little too fancy.
This next one is smaller and has great storage underneath for clothing. I am leaning a little toward this one right now…
Like I said, selecting furniture makes me very nervous. I want to take my time and really find some pieces I like. Plus, I need them to be cheap!
I only have $700.00 for this makeover! That’s the money I made from selling my other bedroom furniture on craig’s list.
With that money I need to buy a dresser, an armoire, two bedside tables, bedspread, bedskirt, pillows, and accessories.
Can I do it? Yes, I can!!!!
I am also going to try and accessorize the room by using what I already have.
Stay tuned for more updates throughout the week!
