Michele's son had outgrown his room's decor, and everyone was sick of the orange, purple and red color scheme. It took a couple of weeks to re-do it completely, using a lot of what they already owned, plus adding a few new things to the mix. The goal was to keep it affordable and simple.

This room might win the award for the most handmade things in one space. Michele, along with various members of her family, made or refurbished all of the following: quilt, sun wall hanging, denim pouf, desk, shelf brackets, fish tank stand, window shade, pillows, chair cushion, model rockets, and dresser.

Bravo Michele! You put the rest of us to shame. Readers, there is more to explore on Michele's blog, Michele Made Me, including tutorials and more photos of the finished room.
