Bedroom Transformations

FINALLY…I can officially say I LOVE OUR BEDROOM!!!

This room in particular has had more changes than any other room in our house!

Lets take a look down memory lane shall we……

Here is a picture that I found of what the bedroom looked liked before we purchased the house.

Then we moved in and had the bright idea to paint the bedroom red with black trim….WHAT WERE WE THINKING….

Thankfully I don’t have very many pictures of this bedroom being red!

The red didn’t last very long…as you can tell. I tried to work with it but red is really not my color…and neither is black trim 🙂

As of today this is what the bedroom officially looks like…

There you have it!! I am totally in love with this room! It still needs a few things like throw pillows, art, and I still have to finish the curtains for the small window. I am also thinking about spray painting the bamboo blinds a dark rich brown.

What do you think? Should I spray paint the bamboo blinds a dark rich brown? Have you ever tried to spray paint bamboo or wood blinds? How did it turn out? Love to know!

Bed Frame Update

This is what we have been up to lately…

I am happy to announce we are finally done!!  All we have left to do is the fun stuff…decorating!

I found the plans on anawhite.com and simply modified it to fit our small bedroom size. This room has really come a long way. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the big reveal.  It will knock your socks off (if you wear socks in the summer!).

New Additions

Yep, that’s right…..We have some new additions to the bedroom.

I scored some killer deals yesterday for the bedroom!!  OH SO EXCITED!!

First up….these awesome bamboo blinds I found at goodwill for 5 bucks each!!  I know!!  Holy Cow!!  I can’t even begin to tell you how long I have wanted bamboo blinds in the bedroom but have never wanted to pay full price….and I finally find them for 5 bucks.

But wait there’s more!!

Now that I have new bamboo blinds it would only be appropriate to change the curtains that are currently hanging up.  So I made a quick stop at a local fabric store and found this fabric for only $4.99 a yard!!  WOO HOO!!  Of course I grabbed it and purchased 6 wonderful yards of it.

So in case you are wondering what the window treatment currently looks like in the bedroom here you go.  One of my goals for this blog is to put in a house tour page (I just haven’t gotten around to doing it yet).  I also plan to give  you a full room layout next week when I post about the completed bed frame.  But for now you will just have to settle for pictures of the window!


The small window above is a bit tricky since it’s not a full size window.

Anyone else have a mini window in their house?  What did you do to add blinds and curtains/drapes?  Did you add full length curtains as if it were a full size window or did you shorten things up a bit?  I would love to see what you did!!
