The feature wall was completed, the bed had new fabric, and the nightstands had their green paint.
What still needed to be finished or changed was:
- The dresser needed to be painted and put back into the room.
- I needed to find a different duvet cover cuz the frumpy white one wasn't doing it.
- Lamps needed to be purchased for the nightstands.
- Accessories, accessories, accessories.
Well, bitches, it's DONE. I think I even impressed myself on this one. The final result is probably one of my favorite final results since I've started this blog. I'm had many moments where I thought I've done a good job. But this one definitely takes the cake. OMG I should totally make a cake to celebrate finishing this room.
So first lets start with the wall to the left once you walk into the room. I found this wooden word at TJ Maxx months ago. Like probably almost a year ago. It was $19.99 and the top was all scratched up. But I knew with a little sanding and some new stain, it would be prefect in this room.
There is a large amount of wall space on this wall and the one opposite it so I was hoping that the wooden RELAX doesn't get lost on it but once it was hung, it seemed to fit perfectly.
Next came a $25 duvet, two Target lamps and shades for $19.98 each lamp, and some clearanced out gold candle holders for the nightstands. Oh and three pillows and pillow covers from Ikea on my last trip there a few months ago.
Throw in a pair of dark gray velvet curtains also from Ikea for $39. Of course, it took me forever and a day to wash and hem the curtains cuz all Ikea curtains are like 184 inches too long. If you remember- these are the same curtains that I used to fabric the headboard and foot rails on the bed.
Opposite the bed is the dresser. But before we get to that- let's talk urchins! I didn't know what I was going to put on this wall but once I saw them, I knew I had to have them.
And yes, my slightly OCD self goes into freakout mode when I look at the placement. But I figured I would throw caution to the wind and just hammer random nails into the wall and hang them in various spots. I spent too much time trying to figure out a design and nothing seemed to work. So random it is! But I won't lie- I've moved a few of them and will probably move a few more to stretch out the design a little bit and cover more wall space.
Seriously though, how much do you like them? They bring a bit of texture and depth into the space. And the colors went perfectly with the other pieces in the room.
I also got these from Target. They come in a set of 3 for $14,99 or the big one was also $14.99. So for $60 I think I got a pretty cool wall of art.
Lastly, the dresser. Still looking for some accent pieces to put on it but for now, here it is! A little blah for this wall but eventually it'll have a little sass like the other walls.
So what do you think? Love it? Hate it? I just remember the girl at the home store when I was getting the paint looking at me like I had 4 heads when I told her what the paint was going on. But I honestly love it so much! This room will not be redone any more. Third time definitely is the charm.
