Bedroom Refresh

I caught up on lots of things this weekend, including finally hanging the made over mirror and the transformed portal. The made over mirror took the place of a trio of contemporary floral canvases from Ikea.  I still love those three pieces, so I wanted to find them a home. They have a smidge of orange in them, so I thought they would work well in the bedroom with my diy orange night stands.  I also refreshed the yard sale lamps I snagged a couple of weeks ago, so the bedroom got a nice little refresh this weekend.  At least the part where the bed and night stands sit did.  The rest of the bedroom still looks like it is being slowly consumed by a laundry monster.  Oh well, babysteps.  Here’s the refreshed bed area:


It feels a lot more grown up than the it did a few months ago when it looked like this:


Did you spy the after version of the yard sale lamps??  If you didn’t, you should probably get your eyes checked.  Here’s a close up, because they are so ready for it.



Pay no attention to the chipped paint on the tables.  How cute did those lamps come out?  Here’s a reminder of the before:



They got a couple of coats of white spray paint, some shades I snagged at Target on clearance a few months ago for $7 each and new light bulbs.  The pair of lamps cost, in total, including the  $3 spray paint and $10 pair of bases from the yard sale, less than $30.  And the feeling of satisfaction when I plugged them in and they both worked, was priceless.

Here’s another peek at the after of the boudoir, just for fun.  And, if you haven’t already, you HAVE to check out the original before from the listing when we bought the house.  Separate double beds in the master.  Love it!



I love looking at the house through pictures because somehow I notice things that I don’t in person. Like, for instance, I don’t really like the pattern of the quilt with the pattern of the pillows.  They are too similar.  I think I’d rather a stripe, especially with the sort of florally lamp shades and the flower canvases above the bed.  Always something new to work on!

And another peek at the cute lamp after:


So, what did you refresh over this long weekend?
