This is the before picture of my bedroom KINDA before… I was excited about my fabric, so I had already made my shams and new pillows for the bed and bought the quilt.Picture this bed with the same coverlet and shams, a green quilt at the bottom of the bed, and the pillows shown below in the rocker. This is exactly how things were hung furniture was placed. And that half naked kid??? She’s usually that way too. ;)
Feature 1: Capri pant curtains from my last house shown with the pillows that were on my bed…. Not bad, but I was tired of it. (Before you gasp, I KNEW the curtains were horrible, just not the bedding).
This side of the room was HORRIBLE…. That humongulous computer and the huge TV in that tiny space between Andrew’s closet doors….
See?? Horrific. Not you Nikki and Victor. I’m describing the TV and chest.
This is the view from the doorway today….
All the photographs are down and have been placed in other parts of the house…. I have my lurverly monogram above my bed and touches of blue here and there.
My new drapes…. Made from painter’s drop clothes for a big whooping price of $8.67 each. They’re plenty long and wide enough to cover both windows at night… I love them. Don’t judge me for the messy sewing space… I wasn’t even going to fake clean it up…It’s always messy. Deal with it. I have to have SOMEWHERE in this house to keep my machine….At least it beats the living room where it used to be. I am going to cute that desk up some though.
The antique computer was replaced with this antique chest that belonged to my great uncle. See the itty bitty teeny tiny TV? I decided that our room wasn’t going to be ruled by TV placement any more. This table is small enough that I can scoot it in one side of Andrew’s closet if I need to. I started to put it up for this tour, but I decided to show you my fix for my TV problem.
More of the chest with this mirror…
This is my funky element in my room….Everybody needs a little zebra. Andrew is going to build a tall thin armoire with doors to hide the TV….. right after he builds a bed with a trundle, a new nightstand, and an armoire for the girls’ room redo. Yeah, won’t be anytime soon.
Mammy’s shelf redone…in between my closet and bathroom doors.
The dresser now….I redid that urn: My grandmother made that clock...That is also her jewelry box.
Andrew’s side of the bed…..My sister Lee covets those monkeys...Isn't that a sin?
My side of the bed… That lamp isn’t quite as green as it looks in this pictures…. The colors compliment each other….They don’t match, they COMPLIMENT. ;)
That is my favorite picture of ALL TIME of my boys…. Those candle holders?? Less than $10 for the pair at TJMaxx.
Another view of Andrew’s side…..
View from my side of the bed…..
This room was TOTALLY redone for around $175 give or take a couple bucks…. I think it looks like a million bucks, and it sure feels like it…. I still haven’t decided what I want to cover that white pillow with, and I want to do some kind of fun fabric treatment on the chair.
This room is my sanctuary…. the only place I can come for some quiet time. I love coming in here now and am just filled with peace when I’m here…. I’m here right now writing this post, the doors locked to keep toddlers and teenagers out. It beats hiding in the bathroom! Speaking of bathrooms, that post is tomorrow. I redid my ENTIRE bathroom for $100. I gave myself a challenge, and I stuck to it… Come back tomorrow for that tour.
Love you my peeps,
