Just a Few Changes

So, I didn't paint the furniture, but I did do a few simple changes!

~ Before ~

~ After ~

I thought the old mirror was a little dated for my taste.  I don't know about you, but I feel as
 though my taste are forever changing.  I wanted something a little more simple.

I found the mirror at Ikea for around $40.  It is a simple oval with beveled edges.  I thought if it doesn't look good, I'll just use it some where else.  The white plates are
some I had in a cabinet. I kept everything else the same on top of the dresser.

Over the bed, I had one lonely platter which needed some buddies.

So, I found 2 more plates to add to it.  I am a plate hangin' fool!!!
You got a plate, I'll find a spot and hang it!!

Love my new Pottery Barn lumbar pillow for $15!!! 

We have had this furniture for about 13 years now, and even though the man doesn't want
me too, I still secretly want to paint the dresser and end tables!  Maybe I can talk
him into it.

Found these sconces at Hobby Lobby 3 years ago.  I wish you could see the color better.
The roses are a pretty moss color.

My man gave me these roses on our 10 year wedding anniversary.  I keep everything!
That's my Homecoming Queen tiara.  Yes, I'm a dork!

The bench is off to get recovered and I can't wait to see how it turns out! 
Here I go thinking again.  I think I might want new curtains and a rug!
What do you think?

Benches Galore!

I'm in the process of doing a few small changes to my bedroom.  Remember when I said I
would be painting the bedroom furniture?  Well, my man has talked me out of it!
I am on a 2 week break from school and he told me he strictly wants me to rest, with no
projects looming over my head AND he really doesn't want me to paint the furniture!
So, I'm being a good wife and honoring his wishes.  However, I can update a few easy things.

#1 on the list is my bench at the foot of our bed.  I love, love, love our bench! Everyone needs
one.  But, the burgundy color from 1996 has got to go!!  So, I'm on the hunt for some
awesome fabric.  Here are some really inspiring photos to browse of seating at the
foot of a bed.

This is so romantic and beautiful!

Here is the burgundy bench in all her glory!  I'm thinking a nice burlap color, but not burlap!
That would be way too scratchy.  Wish me luck!
