leshia's master bedroom

Pin It

the idea for this post comes from thrifty décor chick.  she’s having a “show us your house” party featuring bedrooms.  make sure you go check out her master and her boys’ room.  amazing!

so, first thing’s first…..  this is the first room makeover that we’ve done since we moved in six years ago.  i can’t for the life of me find a before picture.  this re-do occurred before my journey in the blogging world, so i didn’t exactly have it in mind to take 874 pictures. J  it’s been almost a year since our bedroom makeover and i love it just as much now as i did then.  that’s a huge deal for me—i get bored with décor and i love change. 

let’s talk about why i love this room.
            *the lamp shades.  i got them at target.  is it just me or could you spend your life
            in that store, too?  i like how they’re contemporary without being too modern. 
            does that make sense?  the pattern on the inside is a pretty paisley and i loved it
            when i saw it in the store.  i did not, however, realize that i’d get to see it each
            time i turn the lamps on. J  love!


*the mirror.  is it glam?  is it vintage?  i don’t know, but whatever it is, i’m
            diggin’ it.  i scored this baby for $12 at home goods.

            *my rocking chair & raggedy ann doll.  both of these pieces got passed down to
            me when my mom passed away.  ever since i can remember this chair & doll were
in my mom and dad’s house.  i can remember playing with raggedy ann and sitting in the chair when i was a little girl.  the chair squeaks when it rocks and it’s such a reminder of my home and my mama.

*the dresser.  i got this lovely piece at my favorite thrift store here in town called home again.  i visit this store at least once a week to see what new treasures they have.  i love the owners, too.  judy and lynn and their families are such wonderful people.  it’s always a good time stopping in there….especially when i run across something like this. J

*my wedding picture.  this is one of the first things you see when you walk into our bedroom.  it’s a great reminder of a great day.  i love my husband!  especially when he lets me redecorate. J 

 i am still loving the wall colors, too.  the first wall you notice when you walk in is the navy accent wall.  the trellis bedding i got at target, and the yellow accents throughout really give it a splash of color.  i love how peaceful this room is.  the sheers also came from target.  i told you i love that place. 

and what would a room post be without a couple things we maybe don’t like so much that could be a  potential future project…..?   the carpet.  my husband tried to convince me to go with all hardwood when we built our house, but i was insistent on the carpet in the  bedrooms.  it pains me to say this, but he was right.  and lastly, the ceiling fan.  i think with the rest of the décor a sparkly chandelier would just totally make this room complete.  i’m guessing that cb will go for the hardwood before the chandelier. J

thanks for taking the time to check out my little corner of the world!  here’s to pretty bedrooms and lots of naps! J
