After getting a new comforter by accident, and just all together ready for a bedroom spruce up the finishing results are in. I upholstered my own headboard back in December using some great online tutorials and a velvet curtain for the fabric. I love how it turned out. I feel like I am in a swanky place that isn't mine. I had planned on having matching end tables on either side of the bed, but had a bit of a tweek in my plan. Now each side has it's own personality and I am really happy with it. Having the steel blue curtains really gives the room a serene environment. The mirrors, lamps and tulip style table I picked up at Target. (my fav store) With three kids always in toe there aren't to many other places I venture out to on a regular basis. And why when Target is so great.
The story on this side table: I ordered them from Ikea and when I received them and got them put together they were way to low. I knew that they would be on the shorter side but thought it might still work. Not even close. So my fix was to attach the two boxes together. Because I loved the look of the tables so much I hated to send them back. Once I got the two boxes attached together it was perfect. Bonus for me I get more storage. Below is what it looks like with the two tables attached together and below that is the original version.
This is the hubs side of the bed. I love this table and was really excited when I realized I could incorporate it into our room . Plus he doesn't need the storage space on his side like I do for all of my stuff!
Last but not least is our lil sitting area. I am still working on that frame above. I am going to paint the frame black. Right now I have some paintable wall paper unpainted in the frame. But am thinking I will paint it my accent color of steel blue. Your thoughts?
Here is a closer shot of the framed piece.
