The room isn't completely finished, in fact I need some advice which you'll see later, but it looks 110% different than it did to begin with! Now if only my husband and I could act like grown ups and make our bed more often...
A few things: We're renting and since that bedroom is massive, I didn't feel like painting the walls. Also I really had my heart set on big mirrored nightstands like these but those were out of the budget, so maybe someday!
Here is what it looked like before (You can see my inspiration here and here):
And here it is after, with a little better photography...
We needed a storage ottoman because we don't have a linen closet, and this holds an extra set of sheets plus a few throw blankets. It was originally tan so I recovered it (poorly) but its good enough for now.
The duvet cover is from Pottery Barn. I'm a little disappointed in it because it puckers around the monogram and no matter what the eff I do, I can't unwrinkle it. I also hate duvet covers, so I guess I had that one coming.
I DIY-ed this Lumineers print. I love, love that song and we played it during our cake cutting, so I had to include it in the room!
The one dilemma I have is the nightstands with the white lamp shades. Since I'm not entirely sold on the nightstands, I'm being really picky about them. What do you think?! Look for a different color all together, stick with plain white (the grey trim is just pinned on right now), or leave it as is?!
Overall, I'm pretty happy with it considering we were on a budget! It is so nice having a pretty and relaxing bedroom to retreat to at the end of the day!
I think we spent a little over $1,000. This includes the DIY headboard, curtains, and throw pillows as well as the dresser, nightstands, storage ottoman, lamps, bedding, picture frames... you get the picture. Basically everything.
