So, I got an email from West Elm today, and while I kinda do like the look of their new Diamond Jacquard duvet cover and shams it was their sale items that got me excited. For those of you looking to completely redo your bedrooms on a budget, pay attention. This could be your ticket.
First off, if its an inexpensive platform bed you are looking for make sure you check out west elms low platform bed. You could get a full for $269 or a queen for $279. Be warned though, there have been some horror stories over at Apartment Therapy about the lack of quality. Seems to me that if you like the way they look, its almost a no brainer for the price. Just don't get too rowdy.
So, you don't want to risk it with the bed yet, but you could spring for some new sheets? Check out the Solid Color sheet sets. They come in aloe, indigo, or cloud. My personal favorite is the aloe. They are 200 thread count mercerized cotton. Each set set includes flat/fitted sheets and two cases (one case with the twin). A full sized set is only $59, queen $69, and king $69.
Next, I have always been a fan of nesting tables, although I don't own any yet. West elms Modular Nesting Tables are a steal for only $79. You get three tables and a counless number ways to arrange them for a very good price. It seems like nesting table are one of those items that just never go out of style too.
Last but not least, if you are one of those unfortunate people like me that have an old futon couch sitting around because it is all you can afford, do yourself a favor. Throw it away! Ok, that may not be an option unless you want to sit on the floor. In any case, at least treat yourself to a new cover for it. Their is a nice Kiwi Brushed Poly futon cover for only $54. I personally love the color, and it might be just what you need to get you through another year or two with your old futon.
