Chic on the cheap!

I wanted to add a bit more style to my bedroom, but after the holidays I didn’t exactly have a lot of extra cash lying around. But if you are resourceful enough, you can still have style without spending a fortune.

I spray painted this Ikea laptop table gold and added some prints (from the Preppy Printshop of course). I layered them in some inexpensive Ikea Ribba frames to add dimension and I found this adorable little clear lamp from Home Goods. Finally, I filled the negative space under the nightstand with my clutches, which are sorted and displayed in a clear acrylic letter holder! 
I think my new night stand looks adorable with my Lilly planner and ABD mug.
I had been eyeing this Pottery Barn Teen Pop Dot white and navy duvet for a while, so when it went on sale after the holidays, I pounced (btw still on sale). Obviously I had to get the shams monogramed. PS – those curtains are actually Target shower curtains! Ignore the wrinkles, I was overly eager to get it out of the packaging and on to my bed.
I like to read and sip coffee or tea in bed, so a cute lucite tray was a must. I ordered this Libbie & Winston monogramed tray a while back and I think it goes perfectly with my new duvet.
And last but not least, my custom pillows finally arrived and I love them (and they are now available in the Preppy Printshop)! A special shout out to Hunter who inspired my pillow business venture.
Ikea desktop and trestle legs, also spray painted gold.
I had planned on placing all three pillows on the bed, but how cute is this “girl you better work” pillow on my office chair!
I feel like the room finally lives up to my amazing Ikea dream closet I built last year. The only problem is now I never want to get out of bed!
What do you think?
