then and now

Tuesday I shared a few changes in the living room after cwts, and today I thought I'd share how the bedrooms have changed. I'll be needing to update our home tour page soon, because a lot has changed!

We switched up the charcoal upholstered headboard with a bright coral upholstered headboard. I'm loving the bright pop of color! We also added a grasscloth and nailhead feature wall behind the bed.


To the left of the bed we switched up the draperies and added the mint fabric on the chair. The desk was in the guest room for a few months, so I really need a second "then" shot, but imagine the fabric wrapped table there too (I never really got a good picture).

We decided to move the charcoal headboard into the guest room (we'll be selling the teal headboard). I put the room together with mostly things I already had, and will probably do a little more tweaking, but at least now we can see the bed (this was the dumping ground for cwts) and David's parents who are coming next week, won't have to crawl through to find the bed :) 


























One of our former nightstands is in the guest room across from the bed and next to the closet. The other one is in my closet. I also reorganized my tiny closet, which is packed full!!


 We are still changing a few things and I'll be sure to share pics when I have them :)

  1. what i love is that it is a good example of "then and now" and not before and after, because i love the thens just as much as the nows!

  2. Hey Sarah! I totally love your style, you were definitely my favorite on CWTS this season. I'm wondering if you could share where you got that ikat-ish chevron duvet cover on the bed in the top photo? It's gorgeous!

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Missy! Thanks so much! It is the organic chevron duvet from West Elm. They were out of stock online, but I was able to find it in a store and have it shipped to me. It ended up being about 50% off!

    1. Thanks so much! We got the little letters at a local antique shop (they are individual with little bases). I'm guessing that the original use was to slide into a track to display messages. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
