My Room  
Every room in the house has been painted at least once since we moved in almost three years ago (some rooms have their third coat of a different color) except I could never comit to our bedroom. I picked a color that I liked and I kept going back and fourth with it. It is Sherwin Williams Reef Blue (I think) it is a nice deep tone light blue if that makes sense. Well my sister and her boyfriend painted our bedroom for us while we were on our honey moon and they were supposed to buy the bed set that I registered for except the bed set was discontinued and Morgan didn't want to buy something until she was SURE I liked it.

Except I planned the paint color and the bedroom around the damn duvet. We have DARK wood and I wanted this airy feeling with the walls and the rest of the material. Well it has been 6 months and I finally did our room. Filene's near us is going out of business so I got a $300 down micro suede comforter for $126.00, a coordinating bed skirt regularly $60.00; for $18.00 and the assorted decorator pillows were on sale for $10.00 (I think they were all around $35.00 or $40.00 per pillow). HOLY COW what a deal. Well I went to LNT today and got the silk curtains and curtain rod to match along with the Euro Style pillow and some Euro shams that were on clearance for $8.99 each (WOW! regularly $29.00 each!)

I had a lamp and rought iron wall candle thingy that was in the basement collecting dust so I took them outside and gave them a coat of white spray paint and voila, this is what we have...

(keep in mind that my room is small-ish not huge like the new construction houses)This view is from the door looking in at the room.



(all of my pillows)


This is my dresser that needs some decorating help but I haven't gotten to that part yet.


Now along the wall that I don't show you is Kevin's tall dresser and a non-matching kitty cornered cabinet with a tv on it. We are trying to find something to do with that corner. I want to make a headboard and I have an old antique mirror that I want to strip and I am not sure if I should try to match the dark stain on the rest of the furniture or if I should white wash it. Kevin wants to go to Cardi's and buy the mirror and the Headboard to match our set, but dude that is going to be like $1,500 and I told him we don't need it.

Well that was my weekend project. I have to go play with my dog now.
