At the end of March we started redoing our bedroom, now that we're done, here's a little tour!
Our first projects were a large grasscloth and nailhead feature wall and the coral upholstered headboard with curved arms.
The coral headboard is one of my favorite projects, it's simple but the color really makes it pop! The curved arms were a last minute decision, mimicking the edge of the nailhead pattern.
I DIYed a few pillows. The euro sham is a mint and polka dot scarf from World Market (lined with a white table cloth), the toss pillow is a white pillow sham from Ikea with a painted border created with painters tape. The bolster is a kitchen towel from World Market.
We moved the drum shade chandelier in here from the guest room, it puts off the softest light, love it!
We built two nightstands with bamboo legs and a Skubb drawer from Ikea. We also painted dated brass lamps with white spray paint and made a removable white shade cover.
The writing desk was one of our first refinishing projects.
I could tweak things forever (starting with a smaller tv), but overall, I'm SO happy with how it turned out!

Looking at these photos, I've realized that we've made or customized just about everything in our place. Wow! That's a lot of hours... I'm thinking next time it might be best to mix store bought/investment pieces with DIY projects, lets see how I do :)
