The new bedding I received for my birthday a few weeks ago, finally spurred me on to do something in this very neglected room.
So we started with the paint. I picked a creamy color from Valspar called Moose Mousse for the ceiling and Universal Umber for the walls.
We found this great iron headboard and footboard from a garage sale for $40.00 It also has an iron canopy piece that we will show you after it gets repaired. I ended up taking the eighties dresser outside and painting it (more on that process in a later post) I will be replacing the hardware too. Here are the before pictures.
This is not a "true" before because the old bedding has been replaced by the new.
Gotta love the eighties furniture : )
The clock above was a gift from a friend(love it)
This picture is just to let you see the "great "headboard
(It was a water bed leftover : )
Okay now for some better pictures
Nothing above the bed yet, because the metal canopy will fill in the space
The dresser is still a work in progress
Aside from the blue carpet (that I have to live with) I love this room!
I will continue to share the progress with the decorating as I go along
Did you notice the lamps? They are the same lamps in the before pictures, with new lamp shades. I got them at Lowe's on clearance for $7.48 each. A great way to make an old lamp look new again.
