The first of the year, hubby and I decided to update this bedroom and sold my high school furniture on Craig’s List. I was thrilled to have the golden oak furniture out of the house and knew a trip to Home Goods was in my future.
Well, it has been a work in progress over the months but it is complete now and here is a bit of the process.
First, we needed to get a new queen mattress and a headboard. Years ago, Mike (hubby), made our older two daughters’ headboards. They were only for full beds but I loved how the looked. I asked Mike if he could just add another piece of molding around the headboard and make it a full. He said that would work and he headed to Lowe’s. The molding and a new coat of paint made a perfect new headboard and the cost was minimal.
Take a look
I painted the walls Valspar Silver Leaf, which is a gray with blue tones. So with this blank canvas, Mike and I headed to Home Goods. It was one of those days where everything came together and I found just what I wanted. My parents were with us and I think my dad thought I was crazed shopper!
We bought a lamp,bedding, cabinet, pillow and picture and later found the curtains and another lamp at Pier One. The picture was the “inspiration” and all the colors came from it. I spotted it first thing.
The yellow piece was a gift years ago from my Mom, I spray painted yellow for a craft room and decided to move it into this room. I had the table from the same craft room and all the milk glass.
This is my favorite corner:
The ladder was from the family room, antique quilts made by a relative probably 70 years ago, wicker chair I have had for several years. The cabinet came from Home Goods and I loved the color. The ceiling tiles I found in a local antique store. I couldn’t believe my luck, the colors were perfect. I was only going to buy one but Paige talked me into two. She was so right.
The last purchase – curtains from Pier One.
I am thrilled with the redo, this room is so “me”.
