Our Retreat

I'm so excited!!  I got my bench back from being upholstered, and I LOVE it!!
It's exactly what I wanted.  I'd been looking for that burlap look without the
scratchy feel of burlap and I found it!  Here is the before pic below.

The burgundy had to go.  It was time.

~~ After ~~

Now, she has a classic neutral color, that should go with just about anything
I throw at her!

Just another look at the dresser a little updated.

Changing out the mirror really helped the room not feel so heavy anymore.

I added some plates above the picture, just because I love plates.

I would love to add a big rug in front of the bed.  We will see!
What do you think?  I would love to know!

I'll be linking up here:

  10. It looks beautiful. Nice upgrade! But plates should be limited to the kitchen or dinning room.

  11. Hi Erin, your bedroom is lovely. I'm crazy over the plates and think they add a great look to your room. Your bed is similar to mine, and I have single dressers on each side for night stands. I'm a new follower and hope you visit me. Thanks!
