I finally bought some real pillows for my bed. This was only two years in the making. For some reason, I could never convince myself to buy pillows. I felt like it was more complicated than chemistry. I wanted a grown up bed with pretty pillow that weren’t fussy to mess with. I mean, where would I put them? Will the dogs eat them? What if I change my mind after I drool all over them? I was losing sleep over the pillow situation. Then, on a non pillow related shopping excursion I found these…
I was at Marshall’s, which is a rare event for me, and knew these would be perfect for me. Apparently no one bought anything from the Cynthia Rowley home collection because the shelves were filled with it. Lucky me, I paid $20 each for the european sized sham. But that’s not all folks!!! (I feel like I’m in a magic bullet commercial! Dream come true!) I also got these little neck roll/bolster pillows whateveryoucallthem.
TADAAA! They were only $10 each, and are much prettier than anything I would have made. So Happy!
Before I go any further, lemme show you the room before.
Yeah… I don’t have any progress pictures but here’s the whole shebang and a tour of the rest of the room. It’s coming together!
This is the HERS nightstand. That was a castoff from my mom, it was formerly solid white and I distressed it and painted the scroll at the bottom and the insides of the drawers. Much more personality this way.
HIS nightstand. It is intentionally itty bitty so that there can only be so much crap that will fit. I love Caleb, I just don’t always agree with his nightstand habits. It’s a boy thing I’m told. I keep telling him its temporary and I’ll replace it with something a bit bigger, but that is so not on the list of priorities anytime soon. Don’t tell.
This is my favorite thing in this room. I got this door at the ReStore for 2 double cheeseburgers I think? Maybe 3? Either way I feel like I stole it. The lady at the checkout didn’t know what to price it at and she thought it was ugly, of course we had the mirror side facing the other way so it looked even less appealing and it worked! After it was rung up she asked what I planned on doing with it and I was like walaaahh! Mirror on the otherside. I’m convinced it would have doubled in price had she seen that side first. I totally felt like the hamburglar on that. Good day. (Apparently I’m getting hungry! TWO hamburger references in one paragraph!) I also got the lamp bases from the restore for $2 each. Solid brass and oh so heavy. Definitely better than a bat under the bed.
I’d like to throw a shout out to my mom who refinished this dresser, it used to be orange and now I love it!
So there it is. I feel like it’s pretty stereo typical of blogger bedrooms…
Round mirror above bed?
With curtains over?
Earthy natural rug?
