Bedroom Redo

While I liked my bedroom, I had just been wanting to change it up a bit.... and after losing my dog, decided it was time to do it!  Dude slept on my bed most days, so my bedspread had been well washed!  I am blaming TJ MAXX for everything I did!  :)  First I bought this awesome Tahari Home bedspread and then it just exploded, you know how it is .... One Thing Leads To Another!  


You know how TJ MAXX is if you see it in the store you better get it right then because chances are when you go back it will be gone!  I was able to find two pillow shams to match so off I went!  I had been wanting to stencil one wall in our bedroom, so this was the push I needed!


I went back to TJ MAXX on another day looking for sheets, shower curtains anything that went with the bedspread to make drapes out of!    What I found was shower curtains, (found one at TJ MAXX and one at MARSHALLS)
One of my favorite things were the swing arm wall lamps from Lowes they were not expensive at all ($39.99), I LOVE THEM!  (and ladies if your hubby or you uses a sleep apnea machine the best thing you can do is to put a hook on the side of your head board for the hose to hang from!)  

 AND the best invention ever are these little dimmer switches from Lowes and around $15. each, we can now turn the lights out without knocking the lamps over!!!  

I used my sheer panels I had used before put them in the middle of the window and split the shower curtains in half lengthways and hemmed the one side.  I then used metal ring that you just hook onto your drapes without making any holes!  I am quite pleased how the drapes/curtains whatever you want to call them look!

So without further rambling, here is the finished product!  I guess I should do a tutorial on the Mr and Mrs signs I made ..... (one of my favorite things in the room)  I found the rugs at TJ Maxx also!  Hope you like it cause we love it!!!


In case you forgot what it looked like before here is a shot below.....  Two totally different looks.... I loved the first one below too.... but was ready for a change!  How about you?  What do you think??

  4. Hi Nancy, I'm visiting over from If It's Not Baroque. Wow! I really love this bedroom. It looks very calm and soothing. What a nice place to unwind! I love the wall mount lamps, we have some too. It really helps to free up space on the nightstand, doesn't it? And your stenciling looks amazing. Really, very well done!
