This post is part of the Cricut Design Space Star contest and is brought to you by Cricut.
When I found out that I was being given the opportunity to participate in the final round of the Design Space Star contest I was thrilled. We were each given a budget of $1000, + $500 in supplies from Cricut and asked to make over a room. I knew we would use the money to make over at least one of our kids' rooms, what I didn't know at the time was that we were expecting another baby and so the ideas I had been working on would have to be rearranged.
dream marquee sits on top of the dresser and it's one of my favorite projects. It has battery powered lights that have a timer on them, it works perfectly as the nightlight for my girls.

Here's a run down of how I spent the money:
Ikea- $250- storage containers, bunk bed, pillows, covers, curtains and rod
Walmart- $60- sheets, pillow cases, misc hardware
Target- $100- pillows, throw, decor
Home Depot- $200- wood for closet shelves and book ledges, paint, primer, misc hardware
PoppySeed Projects- $100 frames
Fabric- $80 (does not include knit for duvet covers, provided by Riley Blake Designs)
Michaels- $30 paint, craft supplies
Grand Total: $820
Phew! That's a lot more money than I usually spend. I am so very grateful for Cricut and the opportunity to participate in this contest- it has been a tremendous experience and I have learned so much. This makeover never would have happened without their support.
Thanks so much for taking the tour with me!
