There were a handful of delays before I was able to get to this point... Aaaah yes, the reveal of my home getaway-within-the-home is finally here. If you need a reminder of how this room used to look, check out my past post, A Terrifying Tale of Blue Bathroom Counter tops and a Neglected Master Bedroom. It was pretty mundane and was crammed full of safety hazards. We can't afford to take too many vacations, so I was stuck here. Depressing, no? Well, I don't do depressed. It just isn't in me to wallow in my sorrows and pity myself. I decided to bring the hotel vibe into my bedroom - and yes, it turned out just as fabulous as I imagined it would be.
Before I let you in, let's recap on my goals for this room:
1) Paint some walls - Check!
2) Replace the eye illusion bathroom counter tops and give the heave ho to the sinks and faucets - Future Project, not a Fail
3) Tear out the safety hazard carpet and install some new flooring - Check!
4) Add some eye candy to my bedroom walls and extra wow factor to everything else - Check!
5) Dump the overweight (used to be cool) TV in another room. Maybe a future guest room? - Checkity Check!
|Come on in for some R & R...|
Go ahead, it's okay to gasp. I do every time I open my bedroom door. Oh how I love it so!! I am so *smitten* with how well this turned out, I'm wondering if I should pinch myself to check if I'm dreaming!
|Sorry, I cannot do without the ceiling fan. I have a west facing bedroom. Summers are brutal for us!|
I've divided my project into three areas. #1 is my Bed Area. No, I didn't change the actual bed. I did change (about three times) the bedding, added some fab eye candy on my nightstands, whipped up some abstract art work above the headboard and added a touch of hotel glam with the curtains.
|Bedding: Ikea $40, HomeGoods $40 and Ross $12, Curtains: Ross $8|
My nightstand vignette.
|Lamp: HomeGoods $29 ea, Clock: HomeGoods: $10, Horse: Spray painted it after I brought it home from the DI for 50 cents. Notebooks: Target (because they were gray and yellow)|
Mr. Smitten's more masculine nightstand vignette.
|He wouldn't let me get rid of the old clock. He calls it dependable, I call it retro.|
|This picture doesn't do the room quite enough justice.|
|Canvases: Walmart $7 for pack of 2|
I liked that I applied different colors and textures and was very satisfied with my $14.00 and 2 hour investment.
|I told you I was doing something with that branch!|
|Glamorous with a touch of Contemporary|
|Purchased these from Kohls, HomeGoods, DownEast, the DI and Scentsy|
|I am loving this beveled mirror desk! The ENTIRE desk is covered with beveled mirrors!!|
My vanity vignette with plenty of space and function for my daily morning makeup routine.
|My favorite jewelry present from the hubby sits within arms reach. I love my pearls!|
Since my desk doesn't boast with much storage, I opted for a simple box/basket from Ikea for all my hairstyling tools. I am also loving this Tobias chair also from Ikea.
|I heart my MK purse. Its color tied in perfectly with my current color scheme.|
I'll have to let you go now. This girl is in much need of some makeup and hair makeover at her stunning new vanity!
|Zero makeup!! AAaaaagghhh!|
Sorry, I have to do it again...
Keep your eyes out for my next mystery project:
Jello Molds = Glam? You'll definitely have to see it to believe it!
