I redecorate my room about twice a year, it doesn't seem like a lot- but the type of renovation is so extensive that even twice a year becomes exhausting. Once I get a room idea though, I can't shake it and I must do it. The decorating bug hits hard. And fast. I'll get the itch to redecorate on a Thursday, and it'll be completely done by Sunday- latest. We're talking MAJOR room changes from paint to furniture to bedding... I can't believe the styles I've gone through. I've only been in my house for 2 years and this is the 4th time I have repainted my bedroom walls- I start worrying about the thickness and gunk on them! Luckily, I don't have anyone to frown down upon my redecorating habits because I am so efficient I do everything alone- painting at 3 a.m., moving, hauling furniture upstairs, rearranging desks- all by myself. Ordy Boy has one strong gf- it's kind of embarrassing.
**Before Ordy flew out to Denver, he helped take down my old canopy bed and place the panels securely on the walls, that I could not do alone!**
This room redo was inspired by the panels I got from the antique store (remember, the yellow reversible ones?) and although my room was already black white and yellow, I decided I could lighten up the monochromatic scale with some grey on the walls and a face lift on my walls... Enough yapping, here are some pictures...
|In case you forgot- the BEFORE|
|Already overwhelming! (only 1 wall painted grey)|
|Panels on damask side|
|Decided to paint other walls|
|Right about the time i got overwhelmed...|
|Thank God for a huge window...less painting|
|SUCH a mess!!!!|
Here are some "around the room" shots in order so you can see what the room looks like from one side to another (if you even care)!
I love how "fresh" and clean it is. It was such a joy to take a shower (forget what it looked like) and step into a hotel-like sleeping area. I am looking for some shabby chic sconces to complete that hotel feel... something like these:
No rush though, for now I love the simplicity of my room.
My favorite part is my new little vanity/desk area with adorable silver porcelain stool!
Here's a a final pic of Bandit this morning at 8 a.m. (he's NOT a morning person- thank goodness... I don't think I could handle a playful pup early in the morning)...
