The key to minimizing credit-card damage is to update, rotate and hunt for a bargain. Almost everything in the room was bought at garage sales and the furniture cost around $220 all up.
The bed also acts as a sofa and the lightweight throw is good for afternoon naps. I also added two big cushions to work as a headboard with small cushions to prop up the head when reading.

A carafe of water, fresh towels and toiletries, a laundry basket and plenty to read.
Scented candles fill the room with a subtle fragrance; a shaggy rug to keep cold feet warm and a straw hat for walking along the beach just two minutes from the front door.
