As I mentioned on Monday, I took some pictures of our house in it's current state to share on the blog. I was in a hurry, and didn't realize until after the fact that there was a large smudge on the lens resulting in cloudy photos :-/ I definitely lack in skills in the photography department!
However, I did still update my house page in case you are curious. I'll update again with some non-blurry pictures once I get around to taking more ;)
I do have some pictures of our master bedroom to share with you! I don't believe I ever did a "reveal" after working on this room. A big reason for that is that it's not finished! But oh well, here are some pictures anyway :)
And here is what makes this room unfinished:
If you remembered, I sewed these linen drapes from IKEA (which I
posted EXACTLY a year ago... bizarre!) but I could never get all the
wrinkles out completely and that really bugged me, so I took them down. I
will be replacing them with these plain white drapes from IKEA that I already own (but just need to hem).
(I won't be wasting the old linen drapes.. I am going to use that linen as a new background for my handmade paper artwork since the linen I originally used for that project is a little too brown.)
The main piece I'm missing is a mirror for above the dresser. I found a great one and ordered it, and then it ended up being backordered for like 8 months - I'm not kidding! Usually if something is backordered for that long, there is something wrong so I canceled the order.
That's okay though, because I have my eyes on this beautiful mirror from Bliss Studios:
I've mentioned this before, but I don't love our reddish wooden sleigh bed, but let's be real - sometimes we just have to work with what we have! I want to wait to get a new bed when we can afford to buy a nice one (and most importantly, a nice mattress) and right now we don't want/need a king bed but we may change our mind when later down the road we have little ones who want to climb into our bed! So that's something we're going to wait on.
Here are the sources for our bedroom:
Paint - Gunmetal by Benjamin Moore
Fabric Side Tables - IKEA Expedit Bookcase with Thom Filicia Fabric Skirt (POST HERE)
Dresser - An antique auction purchase, I had it painted (POST HERE)
Bedside Lamps - JCP (POST HERE)
Gold Sconces - Robert Abbey
Paper Art - I did this as a DIY (POST HERE)
Settee - A vintage Craigslist find, reupholstered in Pindler fabric
Artwork - I had my friend Amanda (who I had a booth at Slate with) paint this piece for me. It's a adaptation of a piece of art that I saw HERE in Carol Reed's living room.
Phew! This post was LONG overdue..
