My bedroom. Gah. I am not going to lie to you. The before picture is a whole lotta ugly. I actually cringe when I look at it; I’m actually embarrassed.
Let me tell you, when you have 3 kids in 5 years, it messes with you. Our bedroom was a dumping ground. We painted it when we moved in and that was it. From there it was just a mish-mosh of what we had, I would hardly even make the bed because I could never get back in there during the day. I would literally get up, throw stuff in there and go. I was so busy trying to make every other space nice, I kind of forgot about the most important one. Ours. So I decided to give it a cottage bedroom with blue walls. Before… Gah… It’s just a mess.
When a company sent me some paint to try; I knew it was time to get off my fanny and finally make our space nice for us. With fresh coats of paint, new lamps and vintage finds. I wanted to give it a cottage feel… here’s what I ended up with:
The vintage curtains, mirrors, and vintage embellishments make the space personal. I love the calm touches of blue and green with a hint of yellow. Read more about where the curtains came from here.
It’s still our old headboard but I gave it a makeover with caning and paint. You can see that project here.
Now, I am so happy we changed it up and gave it a cottage bedroom makeover with blue walls to go in there and hang out and have restful sleep. I also don’t have to be embarrassed to close the door when people come over. I’ve noticed the Hubs and I enjoy spending more time as well in our space. It is more than just a dumping ground. It’s kind of a retreat.
It’s a spot just for us.
