You are fantastic and I love reading your blog everyday. I wanted to pass along my before and after pics of our bedroom. Started off a lovely builder white, with mismatched everything. I'm sort of embarrassed to submit the before picture, but I think it's important to see the transformation. I was totally inspired by your bedroom and when I saw the floor to ceiling drapes, I knew I had to do it.
I did most of it on the cheap. Our bedroom furniture was bought for us from IKEA (MALM series in medium brown) I started to hate it, so I primed, painted and polyacrylic-ed it a Espresso color. All of the bedding was pieced together from different stores (I got everything on sale, even the sheets!) and the "cluster" (framed pieces) above the dresser was all hand made by me with the exception of the bird
piece. I bought the roller shades at Walmart for $3.45 and covered them in a off white fabric for a more finished look.
I truly appreciate you sharing your ideas. Keep up the good work! Kind Regards, Kristina
Here is the hot mess before:
And the uber-chic after:
Can you believe that she redid all that furniture?!? Uber-freakin-amazing. I am drooling over the green/eggplant color combo....seriously a ten. and those drapes give the room a miracle makeover. Before the room was a Susan Boyle picture. Now the room is a Susan Boyle cd. You know what I mean. For more info on how Kristina joined the renovation nation, check out her blog tour-de-room.
And if you wanna share your hot-mess-turned-supermodel room, email me the pics pronto! You know it puts the swag in my step, the nanners in my pudding, and the eww....that last one sounded gross.
