Dream Bedroom Reveal

So we’re very close to being done and I can’t wait anymore.  We’re just waiting on a duvet cover and a chandelier.

My dream room was painted, new headboard, new art, new bedside tables, new corner chair and new picture frames (no pictures yet.)  And when I say “new” I mean old.  Everything in the room was thrifted, yard sale-d, or made by me.

The whole she-bang!

I am loving my new room!  It makes me want to re-do all the rooms in my house!

Cheers!!

More Done on my Dream Bedroom!

We finished the painting today. As I’ve stated in previous posts our whole house is “builders beige.” *gag*   The master bedroom is now Rain Washed by Behr.

Tomorrow I’m taking apart the current bed and I’m cleaning the doors (new headboard) with some TSP, as recommended by the paint people at a local hardware store.

I got a mirror similar to this porthole mirror yesterday at a garage sale for $3.00:

I plan on painting the frame either a heather grey or a crisp white to match the room.  I have a standing mirror already that is grey, so I’m going to move it into the room and see if it even remotely matches, that will make the decision on what color I’m making my accessories!!

It’s all happening!!

A wee craft

So my mom saw this:

And I told her “You are NOT paying that price for something I can make!” (Sorry bouclair! Eep!)

I printed the text out to fit an 8 x 10 frame and headed to goodwill to find one. I found a bigger one for 5 dollars, brand spanking new AND it came with matting! So I came up with this:

And that’s the craft of the day!
