Bedroom Update with a hint of Christmas

Bedroom Update with a hint of Christmas

I have been wanting to take new pictures of our bedroom for several months. Life is very busy with homeschooling my boys and running our Momtique booth. Cleaning, staging, and taking pictures takes up about a half of a day so it’s hard to find the time. Gypsy Chic (where we have our booth) has an extra week in-between shows this month so I finally made this a priority.

HERE is the last time I posted an update of our room.  This was Spring 2016.

Fast forward to Winter 2017

I am happy to have been able to change a good portion of items in the room but some things remain the same.  Mainly, the headboard is the same.  I am still waiting around for an antique queen French headboard that doesn’t exist.

Lighting

I put up new antique style sconces on the wall….YAY! I ordered them from Egypt and the wiring was all off. My wonderful dad rewired them for me. Thanks dad! I love them soooooo much!!!

Linens

I found new bedding from HomeGoods. Bedding is a very difficult purchase for me. I had searched and searched for the ideal linen bedding but I wasn’t able to pay the price tag that came along with all of the sets that I wanted.  One day at HomeGoods, I found an inexpensive duvet set that came with two pillow cases. One side of the set had a design that I wasn’t a huge fan of so I flipped it over to the plain side. It’s totally a “it will do for now” set and I’m really ok with that.

Furniture

While searching Craigslist like I so often do, I stumbled upon a beautiful washstand that had a marble top.  I absolutely love marble on antique furniture! This piece is perfect.  I painted it with milk paint which gave it some beautiful chippiness. I now use it as a vanity where I do my makeup.

I paid more than I normally would for this piece and not a day has gone by that I’ve given it a second thought.  It provides so much needed storage and looks AMAZING! And the marble top is a beautiful gray.  I’m obsessed with this piece.

Windows and more vintage goodies

On the armoire, I’ve added several antique leaded glass windows. The long one with all of the panes is my newest and most favorite addition.  It’s hard to tell in the picture, but there are four different leaded glass windows up there.  Also, I have acquired some beautiful demijohns to add to my collection. And did you see that antique birdhouse on the window seat….it’s amazing.

Rugs

I switched out my previous RUGS USA rug for new ones that would fit the size of the room better.  I loved the design of the previous rug but it was too small for the room.  Now, I have three rugs in the room. Two runners, one on each side of the bed, and a 5’x7′ at the end.  Due to the size of the room, and my extreme desire to cover up my brown rental carpet, the 5’x7′ rug is off-center.  I had no other option but to place it where it is.  Ideally, it would be in the center but then I wouldn’t be able to close or open our bedroom door, which is kind of a must. I had to let go and be ok with it not looking “perfect” in order to cover up as much of the carpet as I could.

I am very happy with the way it looks and I’m loving the design of the rug. The rug is called Treasures Abstract Vintage Rug and you can click HERE for the link to the rugs. Thanks RUGS USA for making the room complete!

Adding the Christmas Feel

I wanted to add a few things just to make the room look a little Christmasy.  First, I added a Christmas wreath that I bought at Goodwill last year.  Yep…Goodwill.  I brought out my “Merry Christmas” pillow from storage. On my armoire, I placed a beautiful 9′ garland that I received from King of Christmas.  Last I checked, the garlands were out of stock but by the time you read this they may be back in stock! Click HERE for the link.  And I can’t wait to show you my King of Christmas tree.  It’s amazing!!!!!! Stay tuned!

Wow…that was an insane amount of pictures.  I hope I didn’t bore you to death with them all.  So here’s to hoping the next time I write a bedroom update, it’s because I’ve found my dream headboard. Fingers crossed!

And remember, you did it yourself and it will probably show. Embrace the DIY life.

 

I received product from Rugs USA and King of Christmas but all opinions are my own.
