Daniela’s Room: Price Break down

  1. Gwen says:

    You are my hero! The headboard is my favorite too. Dear stepdaughter wants me to make one for her bed, but I need her to pick out fabric.

    I had planned on using one big piece of MDF, but I really like the added texture the way you did it gives.

    Did she LOOOOVE IT?

  2. Jackie says:

    It turned out AMAZING Camila! Such a sweet thing you did for your sister! I just love it all-especially the headboard you made. Such great ideas and inspirations in this room. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Gillian says:

    I LOVE this room! I'm sending it to my friends pronto and think they should do it Camille style. Beautiful! Now a post on her reaction please 🙂

  4. Maria Killam says:

    Beautiful! I love it! Hey Camille, I just realized you should be tagged in my current post. Let me know if you want to play and I'll add you to my list of peeps!

  5. Kristen says:

    I LOVE Ikea, I wish I had one close to me! You are seriously an amazing sister to spend all this time doing this for her, it looks stunning! I think my favorite think is the burlap covered necklace display/holder, perfect!

    What did she say when she saw it? Was she completely surprised?

  6. Brenda says:

    I am love it!!!! It must feel wonderful to have accomplished this amazing transformation. I can't wait to hear her reaction. Oh and I am so jealous your walmart has fabric. Ours removed that department to make room for a supermarket. 🙁

    What a lucky, lucky girl your sister is, Camila! So thoughtful of you and the room looks dynamite! You should film the reveal and post it for our delight!

  8. Dagny @ Beautiful Living says:

    Wow, I seriously think I'm going to steal your headboard idea! Simple and chic!

  9. Design Esquire says:

    Thank you! I am now going to head to Joann's and Michael's to score the fabric, and try to find that mirror. I also want to make that jewelry holder. You did an AMAZING job on such a tight budget.

  10. New England Girl says:

    Absolutely lovely! 🙂 You did a wonderful job.

  11. Nakiya says:

    FYI: I REALLY love those vintage travel posters, so I've been looking around to find them. You can get them from or (which I think may be cheaper actually).

  12. Yansy says:

    You did such an amazing job on such a small budget. Stop by when you have a chance, The City Escapes series is up today.

  13. LindsB says:

    What did your sister say?? How did she react? you never told us!!

    I still cant believe you did all that on a $500 budget, just amazing!

  14. bluehydrangea says:

    Didn't get a chance to comment yesterday, the room is awesome. The headboard is my favorite!!

  15. Michelle says:

    It's funny how much stuff we can find in our closets!!

    She must have been thrilled…I would have been!

    Great fabric buys!! The headboard is my favorite 🙂


  16. says:

    You did an amazing job! I really love the whole room and it looks like $1m not $500! Your sister is lucky to have such a talented sister.

  17. nestegg says:

    I am SO impressed! Great job!

  18. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Hi All,

    So sorry I didn't comment sooner. I've been out all day.

    Danay loved the room! I put it on my twitter status, but I guess not everyone show. I'm trying to see if she'll write a short little post about her reaction. Maybe I'll react it and snap a pic!

    Thanks for all the sweet words. I'm so excited that everyone loved it. I guess I'm in the right business!

  19. Collins says:

    I can't wait for the headboard post – I want to do one myself!

  20. Lauren says:

    amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! BEAUITFUL BUDGET!!!! go girl!!! big hug!!!

  21. Kwana says:

    I LOVE it! What an amazing job! You sister is lucky to have you.

  22. LifestyleBohemia says:

    Beautiful job. I've also covered cork boards with material (I framed mine) and use them for jewelry displays for my business, works great.

  23. Arianna Belle says:

    Camila you did an amazing job! Especially considering you were tight on time and money! BTW- Don't you just love those 40% coupons from Michaels!

  24. Daniela says:

    I just wanted to write a quick note to give my big sissy a huge THANK YOU! It was a fabulous surprise to come to!!! Especially after 24 hours of straight travel. I LOVE IT! All I want to do is lay in my beautiful new bed and absorb the beauty around me..but alas I am back at work. I have to admit that I do miss my plaster fun time art display but it was definitely time for a Big Girl Room.

    Thanks so much CamJam (hows that for a nickname?) haha I know you hate it.

    I love you!

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
