Shopping - Lamps Plus and Ikea

Obviously I am a little obsessed with this bedroom makeover.  The white comforter I ordered didn't work at all so back it goes.  For now I am moving on to other things.  

I found the perfect mirror, just enough bling and character.  Seems like I usually have good luck at Lamps Plus.  (I am not being compensated at all, I just like this store.)  While I was there looking for my chandy for the closet makeover, I saw they had several mirrors on sale.  There were so many gorgeous ones, but I thought this one had character and was a little different than just a plain frame.  I was also specifically looking for round.   At 32" wide and $69 I thought it was a bargain.  It has a beautiful gold leaf finish on the frame with just enough bling, and not too shiny.

 I shopped the house for a few different accessories.  The black and gold box and the gold leaf candle hurrican both came from Home Goods.  I found them on their clearance aisle a couple of weeks ago.  The hurricane was $6.95 and the box was $5.  Love that store and love those clearance aisles.

 This is starting to look like I envisioned.  I am going to call this good for now.

So the dresser on my side is done and so is the nightstand on hubby's side.  We are making progress.

We also made a trip to Ikea yesterday and I bought a pair of the white Lenda drapes.  Not sure if I will trim them or leave them plain.  I've ordered another comforter set, we'll have to see how that turns out, then I can decide.

So, little by little this room is coming together.  How's your project list going?
