I love to read posts about how fellow bloggers found their style and I love to look at tours of their homes. It is always fascinating to me to see how they put a room together and how they accessorize it. Sometimes the interesting pieces are furniture and then sometimes it is all the accessories. I thought it would be fun to do a series called
PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER
This is where we would do a breakdown of a room and talk about how we found the pieces we are using and how we put it all together to create a look that we love and feels like us. I thought I would start this series with one of my favorite rooms.
Our Master Bedroom is one of my favorite rooms, but that is not the way it always was.
When we moved in I used all the left over odds and ends from our previous home. The iron bed and skirted tables from the last house didn't work at all, so I wound up with this hodge podge for a couple of years. This served it's purpose, but didn't at all reflect me or the style I wanted for this room.
Great lamps from Hobby Lobby that were half price at $39.99 each and a few seafoam and aqua accessories for DH side. All the accessories came to just a little over $30 for the entire room. I mostly shopped the house and repurposed things.
I changed out the drapes for something in a soft cream & camel color to match the walls. This gives the room a more open feel. The settee was in the den in my last house and I am thrilled it fits perfectly here. Nice to have a place to sit and relax.
With a few DIY projects, some thrift store shopping, plus shopping my house, I was able to transform this room for $352.94. That's definitely what I would call a bargain.
