A few things including Essie nail polish, ghost marshmallows, and some clearance finds jumped into my buggy... I'm not responsible. Also have you all seen the cup holders that Starbucks provides in Target to hook on your buggy while you shop? Genius!
So I promised I would share more photos of the DIY headboard we finally finished and some of the progress we've made in our master bedroom. It's been a long process for me with this room and I'm so happy to say that it's finally starting to look like it's coming together! It definitely feels a little more grown up now.
If you want a refresher on the "before" photos and my inspiration, see here. Also I apologize in advance for the crappy photos. We only have one large window in our bedroom and the lighting does not work well with my iphone. Can't wait to get my big girl camera for Christmas!!
Yesterday I was also complaining about my mom's sewing machine that was not cooperating. Well, I took it apart Macgyver-style and there was a broken pin stuck inside! No wonder I was having problems! It may or may not have been from me, but nonetheless, the euro shams are done! I even managed to match up the pattern on one of the pillows... which resulted in me dancing around and screaming like Cam from Modern Family.

I'm still not sure about the curtain color, but the grey curtain currently hanging will be used to cover the tan storage ottoman. I think I'll be asking my mom, the expert sewer, for help on that one!
Items still on the to-do list:
Find a white lamp shade for the mercury glass lamp
Style picture frame ledges and add more photos
Buy this Pottery Barn duvet cover and get it monogrammed (of course!)
Add more pillows with this fabric
Decide on curtains
Recover storage ottoman with same fabric as headboard
Find lamps for on the nightstands, preferably clear glass or acrylic ones
Buy small vanity table and redo vanity chair
Geez, that looks like a lot left to do! Hopefully the next time I share an update, it will be the final reveal! Also some of you said you'd be interested in a headboard tutorial so I'm working on getting that together to share next week! If any of your have any ideas or suggestions for our room, please share!
By the way, who else is excited tomorrow is Friday?!
