1st post of many on our home!

If only I had pictures of all of these rooms before. To be honest.. I feel as though this has been the only miracle I have been a part of. The transformation of a messy, dark, bachelor pad to our home! Nothing against my wonderful husband. Just now he has an Interior Designer, organization freak, and obsessed with cleaning wife.

I'll start upstairs and work my way downstairs. This is the master bedroom. This is what you see when you walk in. Art work by myself and my lovely friend Laura. The chair was $10 dollars at Salvation Army. Drew's mother bought it when he moved in and we recovered it. The same fabric is on my nightstand.
These pictures are a little backwards.. This is my dresser. The baby dresser featured in the post before this, revamped and made for me! I found the oval frame 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and put a wall covering sample in. The bird jewelry holder I found at TJ Maxx for around $13-$14. Saw it in a catalog recently for $40! The mirror propped against the wall used to be gold and it has been rub'n'buffed silver, used to be in the dining room.
These are the dressers. Painted gray and new hardware. The hardware was the most expensive part of the transformation. The horizontal dresser was in his old room, it matches the night stand. They were just an ugly wood with lovely brass hardware...
New bed! Christmas present. It was from Three Sheets in Homewood, love that store. Drew's mom sewed everything from the duvet, pillows, curtains, everything. The mirrors were from Hobby Lobby, they are called craft mirrors or something. I hot glued wire to the back so that I could hang them in a cluster. The bench at the end of the bed was a TV console, long ago. Painted, new hardware and a custom made cushion.
I love our room. I also love mixing furniture, re-furbishing, etc. The paint color on the walls is "Amazing Gray" by Sherwin Williams. I think it is light and airy without being all white, which I used to want.. I am very pleased with how it all turned out!

  2. I love the master bedroom! It's so you. I remember your dorm room always had a crisp, eclectic feel. Very shabby chic and I can see that in all of your rooms. Love the blog, keep it up!

  3. I love the fabric- it gives the one such a fun pop of color! I LOVE prints!
