A little Update

Back in July 2010, I posted this bedroom update, added a bit of color to the master bedroom.  I have been wanting to add some patterned curtains, a new comforter (with a better fit) and some new wall art.

To start I ordered this fabric for the curtains
from fabric.com
and a houndstooth for the new comforter, they are out-of-stock on the houndstooth.  The picture is from my order history, so a bit small and blurry.
A week before Christmas, I made the new curtains and put the comforter top together.  The curtains were hung and the comforter sent to the longarm quilter for some quilting.  The quilt came back at the same time I found some bright canvas art from Pier One.  I went in for another piece in their flyer and came out with 3 canvases.  I loved the bright colors of the canvas, which match several quilts I have made of late.

Here is the bedroom, which is very hard to photograph on a sunny day, this is the best picture, just one crooked sham.

I am thrilled with the updates, changed the room quite and I didn't have to repaint!

  7. My bedroom has a similar paint color on the walls. Thanks for the inspiration! I was just doing blues and white and not adding in other colors. Now I see more possibilities. Your room looks great.

  13. Wow! One of my favorite colors too. Yes, indeed, you do have tons of ambition. You must have a secret stash somewhere....lol. Or is it you're getting stuff out of the way now because when that little boy arrives in March everything else takes a back seat? :)
