Bedroom Restyle

While I am awaiting my own renovations I helped out a friend.  She needed a bedroom restyle.  She had a ton of great stuff, we just needed to pull it all together.

She made herself an amazing headboard out of pocket doors.  Very cool.  All she had to do was distress them a little.

Next thing we had to address was bedding.  She had some, but it was not pretty, so she had to splurge a little.  We found just what she wanted at Target in the Rachel Ashwell line.  Lastly, we needed proper lighting.  Marshall's is a great source for lamps.  Of course, the ones we liked were the most expensive at $49.99.  Yes, we would have liked $24.99, but it was not to be and for a little more we have timeless lamps that will work in any room in the house.

So here is what we ended up with.

Beautiful, crisp white bedding from Target.

All of the accessories she had and they have some sentimental element.  That makes the space even more personal and special.

The night stands are different but both have a dark finish.  This ties them together and makes them look like they belong.  Also notice, I have 3 pictures on the right and 2 on the left.  Always work in odd numbers.

Love those lamps.

My favorite detail was this & sign inside a vintage frame.  It was funky and unexpected and perfect.

Make your bedroom an oasis.  It doesn't need to cost a fortune.  You probably have treasures hiding out just waiting to be put to good use.

Have a great weekend.
