Bedroom Reveal!!!!!!

Ahhh! This past weekend, we were busy painting, and refurbishing.

So, I guess this would be my bedroom 'reveal'.

To see the before {scary!!} photos, click here.




Can you see the difference???


Here is my desk shot I shared last time. I moved this chair into the living room, and brought this chair in. I like both chairs about the same, but the black one provides just enough contrast for me between the white mirror and white desk corner {plus it's bonus the old stripes match the top of my nightstand!!}

                                         



Here is my dresser... I am in love with armoires!! Perfect for so many things. 



It is one of the few items in this house that hasn't been attacked by my paint brush!!
The color really complements some of the touches in the room, and reminds me of scrubbed pine...{maybe it is??}






Here is what we... I mean hubby did to the bed.

First I painted over the very dry, horrible varnish with my trusty white paint.

Hubby then cut off the little wood knobs on the posts of the foot board.

To beef up the headboard, he took two spindles and attached them to either side of the headboard...

{where did the glass knobs come in??} I forgot we had bought two glass door knobs for our first house....years ago. Well...after some jimmying up...they are now our finales on our bed! I will give my hubby the credit on that one.... It so happens that the other furniture in the room all are adorned with glass knobs! {this is what 'makes' the bed for me!} perfect amount of glitz!!



                             




I am so excited to say we spent literally no money fixing this room up.....

Bed {{20....about a year and a half ago, thrift store find}}
Striped nightstand {{0....my mom gave to me}}
Sign above bed {{0...the wood was from the neighbors}}
Little desk {{0...hubby built onto an old nightstand we've had for years}}
Lamps {{0....already had}}
Armoir-we use for my dresser {{already had, hubby uses built-ins with the house for all his stuff}}
All decor accessories {{already had, just painted items, and re arranged}}

I already had all the painting supplies from past projects. 
My husband is so thankful that I am back to work {as of yesterday!} I no longer have energy to change everything around once a week {ha!}



Thank you to all of you sweet people who have been praying for Maci! She started kindergarten today! I will be updating her blog later this evening. She was so excited to go to school, and she {we} adore her teacher!




I am sharing this post with Kim's party over at Savvy Southern Style. 


{She has a gorgeous home and I hope to be like her when I grow up!!}
