I think I had the most fun this year working on my bedroom for the Christmas home tour. And I’m pretty sure it’s because since we moved in I have never been able to quite figure out/utilize all of the space. I’ve been picking up pieces here and there and finally have enough furnishings to fill most of the area.
Also, I love glitzy pretty Christmas, but it just doesn’t fit my house style well, so this was an opportunity to use the glitzy I had bought in the past hoping to make it work, and ended up storing it for a few years instead:)
It may seem like I just bought a lot of new stuff, but I haven’t shown my bedroom for awhile. After each Whimsy sale I usually get to go out and purchase one new thing…my reward I guess:) I got the tufted bench this summer. It was from Joss and Main and I love it. It was by the same company that my headboard was from so it’s a perfect match and its practical too:) I think it was originally around $220 but I had $75 in credits so I got it for $145. The furniture company is called Skyline and I see them run a Skyline sale every once and awhile.
The ruffly bedding also came from Joss and Main. Although I love the softness of it, I’m not 100% sold on the quality, it may be going back. Jury’s still out. Until then, it made a great pic:)
I got this Target Threshold desk this summer as well. It was originally $100 but was on the Cartwheel App for 25% off. If you don’t use the Target cartwheel app you really got to check it out. They’ve got some great deals on there.
I hung a few ornament from the ceiling using 3M command hooks. I think I used about 100 this year:) Good thing I have a hook up;)
That fun task lamp is from IKEA. I loved the brass accents on it, and the black and white cord.
I brought in some sparkly pheasant feathers for the hubs, and again…he wasn’t impressed. I guess unless they are the real thing I’m not going to win him over. I made 2 coffee filter wreaths for the windows as well. I got the forms from the dollar store and had enough coffee filters in my stash to make a few. I’d say that’s a good use of $2:)
I found this tree at the occasional shop in town here. I loved how flocked it was…and tall. It fit perfect under the peak.
The mantle is the one I use in Whimsy. I pulled it in for the season. I debated painting it white since the cream is a bit yelllowish, but I ran out of time.
By the time is came to decorating the mantle I was about out of decor and didn’t want to buy anymore. I made the sign and used what I had left.
I found this guy on Joss and Main as well….seriously I’m not on there all the time:) But I fell in love. I loved the gray weathered wood. I always get a nervous buying online because you never know the quality (like the bedding) but this sucker was heavy duty and beautiful.
Although it fits perfectly between these two doors, I originally bought it for under the dormer. I’m thinking once the Christmas tree is down it will end up over there, although I do like how it reflects more light over here. We shall see.
So, I didn’t expect our bedroom to take an entire post but I guess I have’t posted in awhile and had a few new things to show you:) Tates room is next!
