I’ve had my bedroom suit a long time. When we moved into our house I bought a new set. I was so excited until I realized that it wouldn’t fit down our short hall into the bedroom. So back it went. I just haven’t found one that I love. And I really want to LOVE it , ya know? So I decided it was time for my master dresser update.
Here is what I started with. Awhile back I almost got rid of the pulls because they were gold. Ha! Glad that got put on the back burner since gold is back in! I would paint it, but still haven’t talked the Hubs into painting it. You know – good wood, good finish, blah, blah, blah… I get it. The mirror was VERY dated and was it was time to go!
I just want to say that most of the art that I have been looking at just hasn’t moved me. I have literally spent hours looking! I went shopping and found these. (AFTER I had already tried these really cool bird prints that so did not work. At. ALL. Sorry no picture.) After I hung these up, I was totally underwhelmed. They just didn’t show up. It was seriously blah. I wanted a little more glam. Frustrated much? OH yeah.
I figured that I would just keep searching for the right art and move on to my next venture – which was the entry hall. I had this piece of art up for awhile, I liked the art but not the color of the matt. I couldn’t decide what color to paint it so that the art would show up and still match the new colors I was putting into the house. So I went white. And I loved it. But not in the entry – too stark. Then it hit me …what about the bedroom?
Woo Hoo! We have a winner! Simple, but it fits the space perfectly. I am still on the hunt for something with more color in the same scale, but until then I am perfectly content with this one.
I found this demi john and was so excited. I really, really, really LOVE colored glass! So this was perfect. I can’t believe I bought sticks to go in it. Hey, don’t judge! It’s still hot here in Texas even if it is October. No bare branches for me to find.
I had an awwww…moment when I was looking at my photos to decided what I wanted to put out. The small gold frame is a picture of the Hubs and I kissing on our wedding day. The large black frame was taken almost 30 years later at a family photo shoot. Almost the same pose. Really wasn’t that hard to decide which ones to use! I found this small crown at Hob Lob – ya’ll know I had to have one in here – AND it is glass. Seeing a theme here?
Once again, here is the finished vignette. A little more updated. Simple, but perfect! Thanks for following along on my dresser update, it is always so fun to share!
Until next time….
