Finally! Our bedroom revamp is a reality! I’m still looking for door hooks and one chest needs a few replacement knobs. But, basically we are d.o.n.e! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
Subtle blues, greens, whites and browns. Very soothing and relaxing.
A white cotton matelassé found at an antique fair was our starting point. We got to chatting with the owners and were invited to visit their American Gothic home where they store their wares. How cool is that? I did go and bought another bedspread!
What I’d describe as a labor of love and hate; I chose complimentary fabrics and sewed my first quilt. 😉 I’ve enough confidence now, that am ready to begin on a TV lap quilt for my grandson.
George’s loose change is now corralled instead of all over the night stand.
I found the perfect American empire flame mahogany chest. I requisitioned and refashioned the dark, heavy curvy swivel stand mirror from George’s empire chest to hang above the chest on the wall.
Organization and storage are necessities in a small bedroom. Baskets are put to use for storage and laundry. Once tangled necklaces now hang on this DIY necklace holder. . . .
Bracelets are stored loosely in a vintage ceramic pot. . . .
A small bird feeder dish offers a quick drop-off point for earrings and tidbits at the end of the day.
One of my favorite projects was the salvaged wood wall shelf above the headboard.
Just a little reminder of what it all looked like “before.” Gah! Very dark. Yuck.
And how it looks now. So happy!
I was determined that this re-vamp would not break the bank. We re-used, re-fashioned or made where we could. But, we did purchase a few things. I looked for “promo codes” and sales. Not including time and labor, the total cost for this bedroom revamp was $309.00 USD. So, if you are not in a hurry, you stand a good chance of finding great bargains.
