Not amazingly cheap, but definitely cheaper than what I would have spent anywhere else to decorate and furnish a whole room! I was able to do it all for under the original price of the bed! Not even my husband can complain about that!
If you were looking to cut back, I would definitely find a local thrift store and find your bigger pieces of furniture there. The dresser is what made furnishing this room more expensive. If I had more time, I would have refinished a dresser and possibly a bed to save a little more money!
Looks like he approves!
