Show And Tell Friday~My Bedroom Got A Face Lift

Show and Tell

I am just so tickled and EXCITED about today's Show and Tell!!! For you see, after seven years of marriage, I finally have a beautiful and romantic bedroom!!!

About a week ago, I decided that I had had enough of just a "functional" room, and decided enough was enough, and painted the bedroom.

But before we get into the "telling" part, I want to show you a couple of "before" pictures of my bedroom.
As you can see, my bedroom needed *ALOT* of help! :) Sadly, I have to say that we sort of lived this way for a couple of months. It has been cleaner at times, but still not beautiful and Romantic, LOL!

Before I go on to show you the after pictures, I must say that a very sweet friend from church came over one day and helped me to paint the room. It was a good time of fellowship, and we got to know one another better. (And ate too many brownies in the process) And It just so happens that she also has a blog, so go check it out when you get a chance. :)

I also want to say that I believe the Lord gave me this opportunity to re-decorate. Because I had *not* planned on doing this at all! I was "just going to run a few errands" that needed some running for! After I was finished getting ready to go, I turned around to shut the light off, looked at my sad bedroom and said, "Maybe One Day my bedroom will be pretty"

So while at T*rget, I was" just browsing" the comforters. All of the sudden I saw a WHOLE Bed set in a bag for only $42, and it was *exactly* what I had in mind for several months. Maybe even since last year. I have had my eyes peeled for something like it, but never could find what I liked.
It had a bed skirt, shames, pillow cases, sheets, and comforter in the exact colors I wanted for only $42!!! What a deal!! And there was only one size left that would fit my bed. The other size was a twin.
So after I bought that, I headed over to our local home improvement store, and picked out the paint.

OK, now, I will show you the After pictures. Drum roll please!














So there you have it! I hope you like it as much as I do. I can't help sounding braggy! I am *not* very talented in this area, of home interior design, but I think it is Gorgeous, If I do say so myself!!!

Now that is not only romantic, but looking through the eyes of a mother and the clutter above in the before...I'd give you a gold star on the work you did below...the after. Wowzers!!! Pretty.

How beautiful! What a neat find! I've been guilty of having our bedroom just as a hodgepodge, thinking other parts of the house were more important, but it makes such a difference when that room looks nice, too.

Amy said...

Woo hoo!!!! You go, momma!!
