It's done!! Hip, hip, hooray!! A lot of hard work went into redoing our bedroom and I'm so happy that it is finally completed:o) I never ever, never ever, want to have wallpaper in a room again because it is such a "bear" to remove. I tried to continue with the theme of saving money by using what I already had on hand and I am happy to say I was very successful. The only exception would be the "bed in the bag" bought at Penney's at their White Sale (love that;o) and the paint. It doesn't show up really well in these pics but the walls are painted a light brown and the colors that you see throughout the room are brown, gold, sage green, and burgundy. If you remember, I wanted a room that would be restful and peaceful and I think I accomplished my goal. I'm so glad Miss Bonnie convinced me to "step out of my box" because I really do love how it turned out!
I went "shopping" in my attic and found these two pictures that were in our other home over 18 years ago! My throw pillows were a perfect match, too.
The rocker to the left is the one I rocked my "babies" in. Doesn't get much better than that! I love a room of "memories." I have my reading basket (the one I used to put the favors in at the rehearsal dinner) right next to the rocker ~ it's filled with wonderful books and magazines just waiting to be read!
Here is a pic of my vanity. The little round mirror belonged to my Grammy.
After hanging the sheers I decided the windows needed a little something else. I took the euro shams that came in the "bed in a bag" and used them as window treatments instead!
In the next few days I'll have a few more pics of the bedroom, as well as the bathroom and hallway! Thanks for visiting & taking the tour with me :o)
