Come, See Our New Bedroom!!


So this post is about what I did today. I found the collage frame at Kohls, and spent the a large chunk of the day finding and editing my favorite pictures of John and me. Aside from painting the walls, I haven’t done much home decor since moving to Bloomington in July. I have been in a dark place and am just recently emerging back into my life and myself. It feels good to be inspired, and to be on the growth side of recent painful events. Vague take home message: Anything that interrupts my fellowship with God is not worth having. Ok, back to the decor…

I LOVE how this collage turned out, and what it says; “The most important things in life aren’t things.”
The paint is kinda pistachio green, and trim is cream. I am loving this combo with the dark, saturated orange and browns. It is a retro, antique, grunge kind of feel. Especially with the metal signs to the left of the collage.
The afghan on the foot of the bed… I had just started to crochet an afghan specifically for my bed, with oranges and browns, when I stumbled upon this one for $2 at a local thrift store. SCORE. Saved myself time and $.
The black furniture is an oak set I spray painted and distressed.
The black shelf under the serenity prayer wall hanging is a dumpster headboard I picked up curbside and made fabulous (see this post).
More home decor to come!!
