I know it’s been a few months since the last time I posted on my blog. To be honest the inspiration lately has just not been there. Which is usually the case after the holidays. I don’t get much inspiration until the weather gets warm and summer starts to creep in. I don’t know what it is but I’ve never been a fan of spring. Probably because where I live spring ceases to exist. However, I have a 4 day weekend and the weather has actually been beautiful which got me wanting to be a little creative. I recently updated my master bedroom and if you have followed me the last few years you should know that my master bedroom is tiny! Like literally very small and it’s actually not the master bedroom but a spare bedroom that we decided to use instead for our master because we figured we could utilize the larger bedroom more. We don’t hang out in our bedroom anyway. We basically just sleep in it so we didn’t need anything massive, though now that I’ve been flipping through decorating magazines and stalking some of my favorite blogs and their beautiful masters I’m having second thoughts. ; ) Anyway like everything in my house this room has gone through many stages. like this for example…
This look was when we first moved in. Then I changed it to a more cottage feel….
I had it like this for a long while and then I decided I wanted a cleaner look. I painted the bed with a white chalk paint from Walmart, yes Walmart and it worked wonderfully. I then changed my bedding and the pictures. I wanted an Eclectic feel. I still need to find a special boho throw and pillows but for now this is what I have going on in our tiny master.
Unlike other photos I’ve seen on blogs and in magazines I’d rather show the real life ugliness of my television : ) no not really but it is the only place we have a television right now except for the family room which is being remodeled. The dresser I thrifted and painted white with a green stain on the drawers.
I wanted a less cluttered and cleaner feel to the room because of it’s small size.
The Aspen canvas I found at Kirklands on clearance for $20. I love adding touches of nature to my rooms. The 2 lamp shades were thrifted from the Goodwill for 2 bucks.
I love original paintings. I find them all the time at Thrift Stores and flea markets. When I find some that appeal to my eye I pick them up whether I have a place for them or not. LOL. I have a small stash of pictures I like to keep on hand when I want to change things up. These 2 I found at the Goodwill. I was going to paint the frames white but decided that I actually really liked the original frames. I found out after bringing them home that they are from a local painter and are paintings of Wyoming done in the early 50’s. They are beautiful and why anyone would give them away I do not know. I’m just glad I was the first to find them.
These small watercolor paintings I also found and a thrift store years ago.
I’m so excited on my vintage original paintings I found at the Goodwill. I feel like I’m sleeping in a little cottage. I hope you enjoyed my newest and most affordable update. Until next time….
Peace and Love,
