Here are the ugly before's it started to look like a college kids dorm room...
After a little clean up, rearranging, and a few more bought items I got this room looking pretty cute and what I call rustic glam...
The P.S. I love You chalkboard was made from a mirror I had laying around. I sprayed chalkboard paint on it and painted the outside in a metallic silver. I then thought it would be cute to put bright red lipstick on and kiss the sign. ; )
The mirrors on each side of my bed were a total score...I had been wanting long mirrors forever but every time I found a pair I liked they were just way to much money. One day I stopped in at Bed Bath and Beyond and found these on clearance for $6 a piece, they were regular $40. I was so excited, I mean what a great deal and they are very well made and heavy. The Chandelier photos are from Kirklands that I got for $12 regular $25 so that too was a pretty good deal.
I really love the look of Xmas lights in a bedroom. It just adds this coziness that I can't explain. I hid the lights behind the curtain for a little sparkle.
The big canvas with the couple under the umbrella I got at Ross a few years back for $40. I loved it so much, it reminds me of a romantic European setting.
This print hanging next to the window is a piece I found at a antique store for $10. It's a vintage print of a couple in Venice Italy. If you don't know, I am a sucker for vintage prints of European Cities and life. I have quite a few laying around waiting to be hung up. This one fit perfectly with the scheme of my room.
There is no room for any kind of rearranging furniture so the television had to go in the only open corner. It works and looks cute. I redid this t.v. console with burlap and then distressed it a ton. Not everyone's cup of tea but this is actually one of my favorite pieces I've upcycled. The little collage are all from Ross and Hobby Lobby in the clearance section.
Another photo of a European scene. This one so happens to be Paris and the couple with the red umbrellas went well with my large canvas of the couple kissing under the red umbrella. I got this half off at Hobby Lobby. I think it was $20.
These pictures on the night stands are made of love notes my husband has given over the years that I made into a cute little collage and framed. Lamps I scored at Ross for $20 bucks each which isn't bad because lamps can get pricey. The vases are from the Goodwill.
Here are the rustic wood initial blocks I made last summer for our room. I just thought they looked cute over that ugly yellow door. LOL. You have to look past that and know that it will change in time but for now it's staying and I'm working with what I have but adding these made it better to look at. ; )
The P.s. I love you is one of our favorite movies and I just love the saying. I did distress the actual chalkboard so that you could see a tad bit of the mirror because I really wanted it rustic. The kisses are mine. ; )
Peace In Love Always,
