The room re-do is completed…for now. Half of the room got a massive update, which is extremely exciting. However, I’m done sewing for the foreseeable future.
Here is the dresser area in my room now. I got the mirror from Target for $5 and used a key rack to hang my large, chunky necklaces on so I can see them easier (and not have the clutter in my jewelry box). I got the small dish from Anthropologie for $10 and the towel there as well on clearance for $4. The towel brought in the color scheme over to the dresser, and the bowl is perfect to toss in the jewelry that I wear on a daily basis. Adding the mirror into the corner of my room that does not have light brightened up the area so much.
Here are the two pillowcases I made for my bed. Fabric is all from JoAnn. I sewed buttons on to the back to close up the large slit for the pillows to go into. I did not create holes for the buttons to go into — I figured it was easier to cut off the buttons and sew them back on instead of worrying about the fabric fraying.
Here is the completed bedset! The backmost pillows are covered in the pillowcases that came with the sheet set I used to make the duvet cover. I found a fantastic yellow fabric to add pop to my bed. And the old cream pillow is still there as well. You can see the navy stripe on the outside of the duvet as well as the adorable ties that are at the bottom of the bed now. Plus, the addition of the bedskirt really added so much to the bed.
Here, you can see the new side table I got, as well as the fake leather storage box underneath. All of my Europe adventure stuff is going to hang out there until the moment comes to actually go to Germany and Spain! I love having the darker furniture to break up all of the white/light wood in the room.
My desk area also got some love, thanks to my friend Sarah at Simply Step Back. She had an idea to take a frame, put fabric inside, and use it as a memo board. I used the same yellow fabric from the toss pillows, and again the bright color pops over on that side of the room too.
All of the home work has benefitted my life so much, but now it’s time for me to relax, catch up on sleep, and get homework done before Spring Break!
