I've been in nesting mode recently, if you couldn't tell. I don't really know what brought it on, but I've been busy with little projects around our home that make it more "us."
The last couple days have been devoted to our bedroom.
Here's the before:
Nothing wrong with it. I really liked the Pottery Barn duvet cover in our old apartment, but here, with the neutral walls and carpet, it looked a little dingy and not at all feminine to me.
So without further ado, here's after the mini-makeover:
My side (sorry for the blurry picture!):
As for some of the details:
- The only things I bought were the duvet, shams (still waiting on one more in the mail) and I bought the nightstands off of Craigslist. Everything else was from around the house: I found the curtains in a box from my old dorm room, and the lamps, frames, and throw pillows in other rooms.
- The canvases I painted with the "12" and "27" are for our anniversary (December 27) and I just used the stencil technique with freezer paper to add some colors that would work with our new palette.
- The throw pillows will soon be replaced with some my grandma is helping me make. Hooray!
I'm sooo happy with the softer, cleaner look!
