where the magic happens...

remember this? the master bedroom was definitely lacking. I mean for the first thing you see when you open your eyes and the last thing before you close them at the end of the day... ugh.
again the color on the walls was drab... goldeny, browny, yellowy, beigey.. drab (yes i made up most of those words...) We still had the plastic shade on the window and had not hung anything up. Here she is before...


and after.... in all her brilliance. LOVE it.
Dave painted the room with one of my favorite colors.. dune white and the feature wall is dragonfly... again color matched at Parkside to Natura paint. I love the pop of blue. I bought new lamp shades. The purple vase on the bedside table was 25 cents at MCC and everything else was already there. The bedding was on clearance at West Elm awhile back. And those grey pillows were bought at SS for 4.00 each. The headboard we recovered with a sheet we found at SS on clearance of course...It has a beautiful chevron pattern. LOVE it.

The curtains were sheets found at SS again on clearance. I love the way they add to the room. The Love decal was found at Custom Vinyl art on Etsy. The old vintage metal embroidery hoops were found at Old House Revival in the city. I had some old quilt blocks that I put in them.


The print was a gift for Dave (take him back to his roots). I had a gift card at Urban Barn and was more than happy to use it on this piece of art... oh also on clearance. ;)
We change up the light fixture to a old paper lantern that I had my handy hubby make work instead of the old boob light that was there. It has a beautiful soft glow.


I am super happy with the way it turned out. It makes me so happy in there. Just the way it should be... I mean after all it is a very important room.

Nicely done, girlfriend! I'm pretty sure I saw that purple vase at my favourite store. Glad you got to use it :-). I'm a great hater of the boobie light too. Our house is over run by them too. Love a great update!!!!
