3 BIG things were bugging me in our bedroom
CLUTTER -The bookshelves which really just stored books already READ books.
COLOR – I wanted the colors to make more sense and the room to feel more cohesive.
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!
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 .
Threshold™ Pink Faux Mongolia Fur Pillow 18″
ANTHROPOLOGIE PONSONBY SHAM
THRESHOLD MEDALLION PILLOW
Threshold™ Vintage Washed Sheet Set
THRESHOLD MINT MEDALLION QUILT

3. UPDATE THE DRESSER
MUST PAINT THIS DRESSER
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.
TRIAL AND ERROR
I SETTLED ON BENJAMIN MOORE ANCHOR GRAY
I PAINTED THE DRAWER INTERIORS RALEIGH PEACH WHICH IS GORGEOUS! THE PHOTOS DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE.
