bedroom makeover pt. I

when i lived in st. joe, my guest room was awesome – i made it pretty much how i’d like it. but the master bedroom left something to be desired. i vowed to flip flip that with this house (and it helped that i don’t have a guest room yet).

around january, i start to get antsy, so i try to time these home projects over long weekends in the doldrums of winter. i had gotten an old door from my work buddy jenee to use as a headboard, so charlie and i stripped it, framed it with trim, then i stained and polyurethaned it. 

meanwhile, i painted the bedroom a light pink on three walls and the fourth wall big old kelly green (i do like to make statements). replaced the knobs on my closet doors and cha and i hung the door/headboard on the wall. my old beige curtains were definitely not doing the trick, so i got some floral white and grey curtains and some 2″ blinds.

    ooooo pretty!!! i love the detailing in the door edge!

    i think we’re going to do a bright blue wall in our living room and light creamy yellow on the others. hooray for bold!
