Browsing a blog today (can't remember which) I read the following:
"A home is not born, but made".
Mmmm Hmmm. So true! And it takes a lot of time.
Bedroom makeover is in progress......
this is the wall opposite our bed. and I've been filling the frames for months. only three empty ones left. I haven't shot BW film forever so my goal is to take some in the next few weeks. The wall used to be filled with frames all the way to the floor, but our little rascal wouldn't leave them alone.
here are some details of what's hanging.....
polaroids of L
motorcyle sketch done by husband. photo booth pics of husband and sisters back in the day
pic of husband's feet I took back in the day
my mom as a little girl
orange chair from west elm. (an after Christmas clearance score! paid A LOT less than what they are selling for right now. probably because it is not a color in demand).
cream crocheted pillow done by my mom
I moved our family picture from the hallway to this corner and I like it here so much better.
The area that I'm now focusing on.....the headboard. I have these sheets of wrapping paper (been in my stash for a while) that I want to frame up to create a faux headboard. Each sheet is 24x36" so three should do it. But I'm looking for reasonably priced frames. Not an easy task at that size. I may have to settle for $10 poster frames. Cuz I'm cheap.
fur pillows: one is from potterybarn and the other from target.
Duvet cover: another after Christmas clearance score.....from CB2
detail view of duvet cover. I looooove that is is embroidered.
as you can see it still needs a lot of work....texture, depth, detail. But we are on our way. And I was giving colored sheets a try, but I hate them (so does hubby). So it will be back to white. Please someone out there reveal their secret to keeping whites white. Because I stink at it.
P.S. I purposely did not show husband's side of the bed.....the curse of my existence. Have I also mentioned his only request for what I do to the house was an all-white bedroom. I think I'm doing a good job. It's only a tiny, tiny bit of orange. right?
