Today I want to share with you some refreshes I’ve made to my bedroom for spring! A couple weeks ago I shared the rest of my house decorated for Spring, but I’ve been holding off on sharing my bedroom because I seriously could not decide on a combination of pillows. Is that ridiculous or what?! haha! I kept thinking I wanted to go with a lot more color and even bought several different pillows and combinations of colors… but ended up returning them all. Sometimes you gotta just stick to what feels most natural: blue and white. 😉
If you never heard the story of the Eastlake headboard and how I refinished it, then head over and read about it HERE. You can get a closer look at the desk I built in the corner HERE, and the DIY Word Art HERE.
The blue and white tie-dye lumbar pillow I got at HomeGoods and everything sorta worked itself out from there. The other two pillows behind it are ones I sewed last year with fabric from Joann.
Right before the photoshoot in February, my ‘to-do’ list included adding a fresh coat of white paint (BM Simple White) to the shiplap wall (since it had been a couple years and I hadn’t properly primed the plywood, some of the yellows were bleeding through). I also built this nightstand to mimic the one that was there before, but made it just a bit narrower to fit the space better.
When I went antique shopping with Jessica, the stylist for the shoot, we bought this lace coverlet, thinking we would use it, but ended up not! I got to keep this and I love the pretty texture it adds to my white bedding.
I also installed new DIY bi-fold craftsman style closet doors to replace the sliding mirror ones that were there before.
The last thing I changed in here is the rug. I actually LOVED the one I had in here before so much, but the size wasn’t right. It took me awhile to realize this, and even though I think it didn’t look bad before, it is MUCH better now, don’t you think? The rug is the Safavieh Evoke in Blue/Ivory and is the 8×10 size. The white balance is a little off in the pic from last fall, but you get the idea of size difference.
Previously I had the 6’7″x9′ and the new size is the 8×10. Now I have nearly 3 feet of rug on either side of the bed and at the foot, and it goes all the way under the feet of the nightstand. You can see the beautiful colors so much better now!
