5 Months Later…

October 8, 2008

Yikes, it’s really been 5 months since I started my bedroom redo. Well, at last it is finally done. It did take awhile to find all the pieces and then even longer to get it put together. Where to start? First, I do have to point out that due to the lighting, the walls photograph much pinker than they are in real life. The color is much more subtle.

Moving on, the wall art is fabric stretched over canvas. The wall is big and I needed something of a decent size to hold its own on the wall. This worked well and was easy to due.

The curtains and comforter are from Target, as are the flowered pillows. I wanted something to break up all the flowers so I made the small striped pillows out of kitchen towels.

The big project was the bedskirt. Apparently, my box spring is a little taller than a normal box spring so the bedskirt hung nowhere close to the floor. Bill found some striped fabric at Joanne’s and I added a border to the bottom of the store-bought bedskirt. It actually turned out pretty well. And the mirror which you can see better in this picture, was hanging in a different room but it works perfectly in here. If you are eagle eyes, you might notice my other framed artwork. And it’s souvenir from a trip my mom and I took to Cabo san Lucas. I also took some stuff off the walls and that made a big difference. Less is more.

I am enjoying the “new” room and am very pleased with my efforts! As is CJ!
