Working on My Bedroom!

As you can see it’s pretty bare looking but looks alot better than it did, I took my time in choosing  something I really loved for the bed and Friday I found it at Target (love that store). I had seen it on line but was so happy to see it there on the shelf to really get a good look at it and feel the material. I may put the blue washstand that I painted cafe blue (and still need to get hardware for, just don’t know if I should get black or the brushed silver) on the other side of the bed, what I have there now is to small so I’ll be on the lookout for something bigger. I can feel GW calling my name…I haven’t been there in a while, yikes!
The two decorative pillows I found at TJMaxx, in the next photo you can get a closer look at them.

Love them!
I have the shabby chic curtains just need to get curtain rods, I also moved the basket I found at Michael’s in the bedroom.
The picture isn’t good of the paint job on the washstand which was free by the way, I only spent $2 .49 on the Behr Cafe Blue paint sample:) the weather here is windy with rain so I didn’t really expect good pictures  anyway, the paint is as I said Cafe Blue. It had all been stained oak so I painted it…  then with dark brown craft paint mixed with a medium(which I already had) I did the top and all over it and quickly wiped it off…came out great and I’m happy with it!
I thought you would like to see where I blog from, not the best home office but I’m working on that in my head.LOL  TJMaxx had a white leather and chrome computer chair, I sat in it and loved and wanted it but didn’t have the extra $125.00 to take it home, oh well wasn’t  meant to be as I always tell myself! Here is a question for you, do you think I should paint the diningroom table legs Cottage White? Looking at the picture I think I should.LOL The dry sink there is now a catch all but it will be leaving soon and the bench that I still have to do the seat on will be there in place of it.
I love to decorate but still find time to go to Sydney’s basketball game, they won the championship and she also made a basket!
I hope everyone is having a good day wherever you are and I for one am so glad this is the end of February!
Make me smile today, leave a comment:)

Yes on the table legs, and your bedroom looks lovely! Great job! I'm in the midst of a little makeover too.

CAS said...

Your bedroom is looking lovely. Yes, I'd paint the table legs white, but I'd also paint the table top, maybe dark like your chairs. Just my opinion.

I love that is gorgeous..and I'll bet it is even prettier up close and "real". I say YES on the table legs. I think it will unify the room. Hugs- Diana

Your bedroom is looking pretty!!
Yes, I would paint the table legs white. I just love the how your dining room is turning out.
I need to paint my dining room chairs and table legs...painted them blue about 25 years ago and I need to update them. Seeing your's has made me want to grab a paint brush and get started!!

I love the new comforter and pillows! Very pretty. The blue washstand looks like it fits in just right.
I think the table legs would look pretty painted white.

My i want to have a cozy and relaxing bedroom just like yours. The contrast in the bed, black and white is so pretty. Wonderful, can I take a nap?

Gina said...

The bedding is beautiful! I always want white for our bedroom, but I'm so fearful of it with my kids.

Rondell, your bedroom is such an inspiration for my future redo! I love the end table and bedspread. I've been enjoying your new camera pics as well. Thanks for linking up today!

Love that bedspread! There was a blogger who did a tutorial on how to make one which I would love to try!

Congrats to Sydney on making the basket

Nice work you are doing on the transformation, it can take some time to find just the right things but oh so worth in to create a cozy home
