Most of us probably have furniture that has been passed down to us from our parents or other relatives. It is usually in good shape, just not the right style or color. We had an orangey wood, four-poster bedroom set downstairs that belonged to my husband's grandmother. So, I decided I would use the bed in the guest bedroom, along with the 1-drawer table that matched it. I figured I could paint it and the oak 2-drawer chest, that was handed down to me, the same color to make it work in the space. I browsed Pinterest to get some ideas and I found similar style tables HERE and HERE that were painted.

For the two-drawer chest, I decided on a simple Liberty satin nickle pull that was $2.
For the one-drawer side table, I actually took a knob off one of the cabinets that are in our basement kitchenette, since we will be tearing out the cabinets as part of our basement renovation. You can find a similar style HERE for less than $2.
To finish the space, I used the Tommy Hilfiger bedspread I already had and added some cute Cynthia Rowley pillow shams (aff link) I found on Clearance at TJMaxx, for around $10. I then used a couple of throw pillows that were in the top of my linen closet and a quilt my grandmother had made for me, to finish off the new look.

The result is a cozy and cohesive bedroom that is ready for guests and I spent less than $25!
