Bedroom Deco Almost Finished!

i have been going back and forth with styles and items that i want for our master bedroom. i recently added the headboard and comforter. i was inspired by this comforter in the recent pottery barn catalog.

i would love it if i was able to spend this amount of money on a comforter but my love for DIY made me head t my locl fabric shop and purchase 35 yards of unbleached muslin! my finished result...

sore little fingers and all i am really happy with how it turned out!!

Tiered Table

I was scouting out the local salvation army and found this beauty! it was marked at $24, but everything in the store was half off that day! so i took it home for $12!!!!

i absolutely LOVED the pie crust edges and the metal tips on the feet. the color on the other had left much to be desired. i'm slowly starting to change out the furniture in my house to all vintage painted furniture and HAD to have this! my next trip was to the home depot to figure out which paint i wanted for this piece. i came across the martha stewart line and found that they have sample sizes that you can buy for bout $2!! i thought the color sharkey gray was perfect!

i am very happy with the outcome and will probably use this paint on many more projects to come!

Total cost of this project was right around $14!!

DVD Cabinet Makeover

My husband and I have had this DVD cabinet for probably 6 or 7 years now and i've never really LOVED it. I decided paint it white and give it a farmhouse feel with chicken wire in the door. Here are the before and afters and I can finally sy that now i LOVE it!
