When we moved in four years ago, my focus was on the nursery. I was seven months pregnant with my first child and I wanted to create the perfect space for him. So, I poured all my time and energy into his room. Slowly, I moved my attention to the other rooms in our home. I redid our den and designed another nursery.
I wouldn't say our bedroom was an after thought but it certainly wasn't high on my list and my lack of effort shows.
When my dear friend (and genius) Sara Falder of Flower + Furbish began helping me redesign my space, I knew the bedroom is where I wanted to start. Over a week (the week before my renewal!!!), we transformed the blah space you see above into a glamourous retreat!
Most of the transformation is thanks to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. We painted the walls and my hope chest in Paris Gray and then hung Tempaper in Diamond Taupe. (If you live in Paducah, you can get both at Flower + Furbish!)
We reupholstered my headboard with curtains from Ikea and transformed Rast side tables with Chalk Paint®, new hardware, and gold spray paint.
Most of the accessories were from around my house. Add in a new bedspread from TJ Maxx and curtains from JC Penney (seriously, have you been in there recently?!?) and the room was complete.
What do you think?!?
