A few weeks ago, I decided that it was long past time for me to create a bedroom where I felt comfortable and relaxed...a place where I WANTED to be rather than a place to just go in and fall out every night. My job is incredibly stressful, and I both wanted and needed a soft place to land, a place where I could escape for just a few minutes of peace and quiet. A place where I could watch all my favorite thought-provoking shows that my "father" doesn't approve of such as
I have always loved white bedding, and I knew that I wanted to paint my room Sherwin Williams Quiver Tan. I also knew that I was happy with the black furniture I had recently purchased, along with my Memory Foam matress set. Other than that, it was a clean slate.
I am so pleased with the results, and I know enjoy spending time in my room. And best of all, I no longer close the door to my bedroom when guests come over! I love, love, love the way it turned out. It's just what I wanted! I didn't spend a fortune, most of what you see is repurposed from other rooms in the house or purchased at the antique store. That's the best makeover of all, one that doesn't break the bank!
This is really how it started...my grandma always had white chenille bedspreads on her beds during the spring and summer months. I got a catalog for Linen Source in the mail one day, and I was flipping through it when I came upon this bedding set. I knew right then I had to have it. It reminded me of happy summer days spent at her house soaking in an old white clawfooted tub filled with Calgon! It was just one of those things I knew I couldn't live without.
