Bedroom Update

This isn't a crafty post, or a DIY post.  I just wanted to show you all a little bit of the bedroom makeover that I started over the weekend.  To give you a better idea of the overall feel and color scheme I'm aiming at.  I went to Target this weekend (most-awesome-store-ever)  and got a few things on super sale!  Yay for amazing things on clearance at Target!  Here is a "before" picture:

The colors were ok enough (browns/beiges).  But they were seeming a little blah if you know what I mean.  Also, notice the ugly not matching red blanket?  That's for Paddington, so that he doesn't get the duvet all dirty when he comes up on the bed.  Also notice the tiny, sad little lamps.  These were somewhat of an impulse buy when the house was first being decorated by moi.  Oh how I wish I had Pinterest back then!

But now, thanks to all you lovely people out there in blog land and in Pinterest land, I've changed my taste and opted for more bright and airy colors.  Here are some "after" pictures:

For the last picture of the lamp, it makes the room look super dark, but I really just wanted to show you the fun texture on the lamp shade.  Aren't these colors so much better?!

I got new gray and white sheets with a fun pattern, a new duvet cover that came with 2 pillow cases, a new fleece blanket in a lovely teal color, and a new body pillow with a fun pop of yellow.  I think the new lamps are much more substantial now, and they look great with the new gray and sheer white drapes.

Overall, very successful start on the bedroom makeover.  I still want to paint the walls in a nice light gray/white-ish color.  And we still need new carpet.  But I think its a good step in the right direction :-)


  1. I love it! Especially the lamps!!! Did you get those at target too??

  2. Yes I sure did! Target has some great lamps with mix and match shades right now!
