my bedroom

Well it has taken me long enough…I am finally posting pictures of my room. I don’t feel like searching for ‘before’ pictures, but I’ll tell you the walls were previously chocolate brown and nothing was hanging on any of the walls. When we were engaged a mentor couple encouraged us to always keep our room about us…and not about our kids (thanks Mick & Geni). I liked that idea. So our bedroom is about Chris & I and our love story. It is full of things that remind me of times with him, which in my opinion is so much better than a bunch of high end meaningless decorative items. But that is just me….and this is just my crazy hodge podge room.

Our wedding vows, wedding announcement and old pictures.

The floor is actually our plywood sub-flooring…after a bunch of paint and hard work.


As much as our room is about us…this is what is usually taking place all hours of the day!


Wall paint: Muslin from Wal-Mart

Trim: glossy white enamel from Wal-Mart

Chicken wire: from Atwoods, painted with Aged Copper spray paint, stapled to the wall & trim added to the top and bottom; idea from my friend Lori Kroh

Teal furniture: built by my grandpa, don’t know paint color, but it has a layer of wood stain on top

Painted floors: see this post; check back tomorrow for tips on making a stencil

Bed: built by my dad, you can get similar from PotteryBarn (farmhouse collection)

Fabrics: estate sales, Southern Hospitality, JaneSays Vintage

Flowered chair: $5.00 for an estate sale

Pillows: I made them all

Rosette pins: Rosettes by Allora Handmade, glued to mini clothespins

Rolling cart: snagged from my neighbor’s yard after he moved out (with permission)
