Our "new" spruced-up bedroom

We all need a safe place to land in life. For me, that's our cozy bedroom, and I like to change it out fairly often. When it was feeling blah again , we decided to give it a quick little dollarwise spruce up.


Here's what we did and you can easily do too if your bedroom is feeling blah.


  • Steve painted an accent wall in pale peach to go with our art.

  • I found a new bedspread to compliment the wall color and floral art.

  • We shampooed the carpet with one of these.

  • I bought a small faux fur rug that feels so soft on the tootsies!

  • I bought new fresh while pillow shams.

  • I bought a new cute "Dream" pillow with turquoise stitching to match our painting.

  • I tidied up my nightstand with this small two-tier shelf and I really love it!

  • We bought new natural fiber curtains to tone down all the florals and make the room feel serene.


That's it. For just a bit of money and a little labor we have a whole new look.


PAINTING TIP 1:

My hubby Steve suggests 3 inch blue painter tape so you don't get paint on adjacent walls and you can easily see the tape. It worked!


PAINTER TIP 2:


Paintbrush tip

Our wall took three coats of paint, so in between coats Steve stored the brush in a zipper plastic bag so it would not dry out as we waited 2 hours between coats. Works great!
