Master Bedroom…Some Progress

Did you think I’d forgotten all about my bedroom make-over?

Nah, course not, truth is, I’ve just been super busy.

Between furniture refurbs, design consultations, my real full-time job, writing this blog (and checking out everyone else’s), housekeeping (etc, etc, blah, blah, blah) and this little thing called a ‘life’ – which apparently requires you attend weddings and catch-up with family and friends every once in a while (really, how totally inconvenient :-), I haven’t been left with too much spare time.

I have however managed to make some progress in the bedroom.

I made a quick trip to IKEA for this…

…and these…

Helped with the installation of this…

Researched how best to re-create a giant one of these…

And started sprucing up some of my second-hand furniture finds.

So it’s slowly getting there.

I still need to source new bedding, get more window treatment stuff, finish snazzying up the furniture, find some thrifty decor, create some thrifty decor and so on and so forth.

I really can’t wait to get it done and share it with you guys already!

    Way to tease us! I hope you share your tips on, well, everything but specifically on how you were able to do a bargain version of that beautiful map.

  2. Meg says:

    All items that you post are beautiful but what really attracts me was the ceiling fun. It is so gorgeous and the color is so perfect for my new renovated dining room.
