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?

I'm linking up with:



  1. Hey Erin!
    Your room looks great! I love the crisp white bedding and the plates you added too.
    I think you did a great job!

  2. I like the way you oriented that oval mirror. Nice job!

  3. it's lovely! i love the plates!! susan

  4. Your room is beautiful! I love the arrangement over the headboard...that's always a hard spot for me to decorate! And new things are nice! heehee! ♥

  5. My master is the sam color with distressed black furniture. Ilove the wite plates repeated. Looks so lovely. ome on by and see my giveaway...you may like it!

  6. Your master bedroom is very pretty! The green and white together look so relaxing!

  7. Erin, Your bedroom is gorgeous! I love the white bedding and plates.

  8. wow that bed is gorgeous! i love the changes you did in switching out the mirrors. I am with you though on painting the furniture. but thats because i am going to paint mine..lol. i have my parents 1963 maple set and i just cant take it anymore.
    thanks for sharing.

  9. Hey, Erin, your bedroom looks beautiful and cozy! Yeah, I'm a hanging plate fool myself...so, I love the plates you used, very pretty. Love the white bedding, too! I'm also at Rednesday! Lots of hugs. FABBY

  10. Erin your room looks soooooo pretty!! Love the after, I did the same thing to my dresser last year. We have almost the same bedroom set. Martina

  11. Beautiful bedroom, looks so tranquil

  12. I love the changes you made! It definitely looks more updated now. I want to take out a few pieces of my bedroom suite...and of course the hubs thinks it is unholy to split up a set. Sheesh. So I am just going to paint the end tables and armoir to break up the matchy matchy look. He doesn't like that idea either...but it's my compromise!!! LOL!

  13. If that were my room, I'd find it impossible to get up and leave it! It's sooo beautiful! And that was a super smart move with the dresser. I remember watching a Sarah Richardson episode before and she said never to buy one of those 5pc bedroom sets. She always made it a point to detach the mirror from the dresser to achieve a better look. I love your pictures! Thanks!

  14. Im so glad to know that Im not the only one who changes things up often! My husband just gave up and just lets me do what I need to do :)

    your blog is so cute and so is your decorating style!

  15. The new mirror looks so much better. The old one is lovely but was too heavy for that spot. Maybe you could paint the old one and find a new place for it. The room is looking nice, I'm planning a few bedroom makeovers soon too!

  18. The change in the mirror is really a nice one! The whole room looks comfortable and inviting!

  19. Though I think the dresser would be beautiful painted with different pulls, what you did by removing the predictable mirror and doing what you did above and around the room is amazing. It looks so complete now. Wonderful.

  20. Pretty bedroom, Erin. I love your bed. I used to have one like it and then gave it away. I was just ready for a change. Thanks for joining the party.

  21. Just discovered your blog! What is the name of
    the beautiful green color on your bedroom walls?
    What you have done in there is so pretty~
    Thanks~Cindy Sutlive
