I have officially started my bedroom redo! Last night after my husband and I got home from work I decided it was time to use the money he gave me for my birthday to start my makeover. At 8:00 p.m. we decided to jet over to Bed bath and beyond to get the bedding I had picked out, but to my disappointment they didn't have it =(. My husband, being the smart man he is, made the brilliant suggestion to ask someone to look up if any stores in the area had it in stock. Luckily with 18 minutes until closing there was another store a few miles away that had it, so we were off!
I got my bedding with my bday money and my 20% off coupon and we were ready to roll. We got home about 9:30 and I stayed up until 1:00 washing the duvet and our down comforter ( I like to start fresh when I get something new). This morning I woke up and before I went to work I messed around a bit with pillow placement and what not, here was my first try

Not Obsessed. Although much better I am still not satisfied, the pillow situation needs a little updating, good thing I have a little more bday money =) stay tuned...

Headboard ideas

My last post I highlighted inspirational rooms and in that spawned a great idea for a headboard! The headboard in the below picture was made of what looked like painted wicker screens. While I love the look, im just not crazy about wicker and screens tend to be pretty pricy, so I began an online search and I found this wonderful lattice paneling that I can paint and mount as a headboard. This would look great in a high gloss orange! I am so excited to get started =)
Who knew Home Depot would have such artful lattice options, and its only $40.00

Inspiring colors

I have not updated my blog in a while because work has just been crazy! I think about it all the time and have so many posts I need to write up, but for now I just want to share some of my latest project ideas and inspirations.
The first photo is a photo I saw and I fell in love with. This headboard is a beautiful way to add color and interest, as well as being something I can create myself =)

This next photo is the duvet cover I have purchased that I think will go great with my lime green curtains and pillows
