Hope everyone is off to a good summer.

Pray for Peace. xo

3 BIG things were bugging me in our MASTER bedroom

  1. CLUTTER -The bookshelves which really just stored books already READ books.
  2. COLOR – I wanted the colors to make more sense and the room to feel more cohesive.
  3. DRESSER – The DRESSER, purchased originally as a side board for the dining room…and which was a style I no longer cared for.

So I decided to do a MINI MAKEOVER –

1.FIRST I SIMPLY PACKED UP THE BOOKS, and moved the bookcases to the storage room. DONES. IMMEDIATELY – the bedroom felt roomier and less cluttered. I will either put the bookcases on Craigslist or let Tate take them this summer when he gets his first APARTMENT! Yikes!

 

2. I ordered some inexpensive NEW SHEETS , Pillows and a THE TARGET THRESHOLD MEDALLION QUILT  to coordinate with my AHTROPOLOGIE PONSONBY QUILT and update the colors, bring in some blush and mint .

I TRIED A FEW COLORS AND SETTLED ON BENJAMIN MOORE ANCHOR GRAY IN ADVANCE SATIN FINISH. I REMOVED THE SHABBY EMBELLISHMENTS AND ADDED NEW DRAWER PULL HOLES TO ACCOMODATE THE NEW HARDWARE.
