Our Master Bedroom

Monday, August 1, 2011

Hello all. First I want to thank you all for your sweet comments yesterday. They were very encouraging and really helped me get over my feeling idiotic for taking pictures of myself. Seriously, thanks!

Exciting post today. I have finally finished and photographed our bedroom transformation. This has been a long time coming, but I'm so happy to say that it feels pretty complete. There are a few other extra projects that I may do in this room, but for now, it's "done".

You may remember the "Before":



And here is the "After":


($5 if you can spot lazy Louie)



The frame above our bed is from Savers. Yes. It was $6.99. When I picked it up, I thought, "Am I really going to buy this for my home? Seriously?"....Yep, I did. And I love it!

We had a very large amount of unused mirrors sitting in our storage room. I don't know what my deal is, but when I don't know what to buy, I always resort to wall mirrors. Any way, I tried to use a couple of them by stacking them on our dresser. Love, love.


Our lovely duvet cover and shams are from the "Sienna Paisley" bedding collection at Pottery Barn. EBay, baby. Half the price.

The velvet euro shams are from Target. I'm kind of obsessed with them.


I'm so proud of myself because I managed to make this bed skirt! Tutorial to come. Total cost: $14.


I got the lamp on super sale at TJ's. $18. There's a dent on the back of the shade..."So what?" is what I say to that.



Ah, these stools. I'd been looking for cute garden stools for several months, and then I came across these beauties at World Market. On sale. Sold!


Our child. Our very bored child.


The wall color is "Bay Sands" by Valspar. It's a shade lighter than the color in our bathroom. We don't have room for bedside tables (our door is the to right of the bed and almost touches it when it's open), so the lamp will eventually move to our guest room to make way for wall sconces. I love me some good wall sconces!


So that's the room. I feel like we did a lot with such a small space. I'm hoping to add some wall art to the wall that's on the left side of bed, but until then, we are fin-ished.

Hope that I'm not the only one who loves it! Have a great, great day.

P.S. 30 for 30 will return tomorrow!


Double P.S. Chances are, I'm linking this post to a couple of link parties which can be found HERE. Check them out!
