Before we moved into the new house, we knew we would need new bedroom furniture. Matt didn’t want to buy anything while we were still in the townhouse, since we had no clue what our new bedroom space would look like. We ended up getting my old bedroom set from my mom and have had that for a few years now. It was a decent size in the townhouse but we figured it would be too small once we moved.
We’ve been in the new house for over a year and the bedroom just doesn’t fit. The furniture is too small and the room as a whole was feeling kind of blah. I told Matt the time was coming for a makeover. I will hopefully have a little money from my grandmother and I told Matt part of that was going to redoing our bedroom! Well, I’m still waiting to see how much money I might have but the bedroom makeover is under way. It all started with curtains.
I ran to Home Goods at lunch one day looking for a few more baskets for my closet. I hadn’t planned to buy new curtains but while I was there I decided to see what they had. I figured finding 6 curtain panels, in the right size, at Home Goods was probably impossible so I was SHOCKED when I found 3 pairs. That I LOVED! Needless to say the curtains came home with me. We got the curtains hung and I was in love! They were so light and airy and made the room feel much more cozy. Of course, now the bedding didn’t match. I found a set at Stein Mart I liked and mom was able to get me a discount. With new bedding and curtains, the room was coming together. I’d decided I wasn’t crazy about the pics I had over the bed though. Not that that was a necessity at this point but I had causally started looking.
The other day I ran to a junk store by my office. It was recently purchased and the new owners have taken it upon themselves to start sprucing the place up. When I first started going, it was a total hole! Now it’s almost like a real store. Anyway, while I was in there the other day I saw a painting when I walked in. I glanced at it and kept moving. As I was headed back to the front I noticed someone carrying it around. I started talking to her and she ended up giving it back to me. Whoops. I really loved the frame but was a little disappointed the “painting” was only a print. I ended up buying it with thoughts of removing the print and painting something myself. I went as far as to find all the paint supplies I needed on Amazon.
I got the picture home and waited for Matt’s reaction. He was very “meh” about the whole thing. While he was playing golf on Sat morning I propped the new pic up above the bed and immediately decided it was perfect! I hung it on Sunday and it really adds to the room. The pics are kind of hard to get a good feel but so far everything is coming together beautifully! Now we just need the big stuff, like new furniture!
