Mini reveal of the masterbedroom...

Hi there!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  We did. 

Sorry to have postponed the bedroom reveal a couple of times.  I didn't want to reveal until it was TOTALLY done.  Unfortunately, I have come to realize it will be a work in progress.  So, I will share what I have so far.

So far I have only spent $74.74   My greatest find that was at the most phenomenal price you wouldn't believe were these lamps.  Here is a view of  it on my hubby's nightstand.  I really wanted new lamps for this room and I was looking for glass based lamps.  I found these at Target.

   Look at that glass.  Don't you just love it?  It's the kind that has a crackle look to it.  If you click on the picture you may be able to see it better.  And are you ready for this???  Doesn't this lamp look like it could be pretty pricey???  I thought so too until I picked up the lamp base and looked at the price tag.  They were $8.74 a piece!!  Can you believe that?  I thought y'all might not, so I took a picture of the clearance price tag.

 Next up is the bed.  I was looking all over for a white ruffled bedskirt.  I have to tell you though I was not about to pay $89.00 for a bedskirt!  That is how much they were for  a queen sized bed.  I already had this natural linen tailored one so I used this. I also already at this alternative comforter as well.  So, no money spent there.  FREE!!  Love it.
 Not sure if you can see the shams too well in this pic, but they are Battenburg Lace shams.  I also have a bed skirt to match it, but it doesn't quite go all the way to the floor, so I didn't use it. Since I already had these, they were free as well.  Don't you love when you are able to use what you have already?
       Here is a better view of the bed with the linens on it.
Here is a closeup of our cedar waterfall chest.  It is one of the few pieces of furniture we bought when we were first married.  It has served us well.  It is a very deep chest and I store lots and lots of blankets in it.  That blanket on it is the most soft blanket.  It is my fave and I occassionally curl up with it on the sofa next to hubby to watch movies.

One thing I didn't take a pic of is the one splurge I made....and that was on the sheets.  Y'all, I have never had 400 + thread count sheets before.  They are the softest, most comfortable sheets I have ever slept on before.  They even have a tag at the bottom of the sheet to let you know that that end goes at the foot of the bed.  So fancy.  I love them.  They seem to get softer each time I wash them. 

So, the grand total spent so far is:

Sheet set          44.00
Lamps             16.74
Shades             14.00
       Total         74.74

Not bad, eh?  Tomorrow I will show you the seating area and hopefully my version of the Bonne Nuit  pillow.

Let me know what you think so far.  Do the glass lamps look okay with our furniture?  Do you like the bedding?  Is there anything you can suggest to add to the bedding?

Enjoy your day!Pin It Now!

Just beautiful!! I am in the process of a bedroom makeover too and like you, I'm having fun re-using alot of the things I already have. I love to repaint and repurpose! Those lamps are a great find. Wow!

Thank you so much for your visit today. I really appreciate your comment and yes, I'd be happy to share a tutorial on how to make the hanger covers. Give me a few days to put it together and then I'll be more than glad to post it to my blog. Thanks so much for asking!! Have a great week.

xo and blessings,

Your room looks beautiful! I love those lamps! I cannot believe you got those on clearance. They remind me a little of the ones in my bedroom. I would have totally scooped those up. :)
I love your white bedding too. You are doing a great job. Keep it up!

You ladies are sweet. Thanks so much for the encouragment. I am still searching for 95 inch drapes that won't cost me and arm and a leg.

YAY Kathleen! I am so excited you will be putting together a tutorial. Thanks so much. Looking foward to it.

I love the clean, unclutteredness of the room. The colors are very soft and muted; perfect for rest. You've done a beautiful job!
