I have "staple-gun hand" lol. I spent last night helping some friends re-upholster their dining room seat cushions after they had a house fire. That spot between my thumb and pointer finger is KILLING me from squeezing the staple-gun about 3 billion times- but they turned out beautiful and I was happy to help. Things like this always make me feel good- being creative and crafty. Working all these hours has really taken a toll on my creativity the past few years- but I am slowly claiming it back.
This past year I took on the master bedroom re-design. I went with an overall calming effect and a hollywood regency style. I chose a dove gray wall color- it has lavendar tones and a soft gray hue- very soothing to the eye. The bed was one I had for a few years- and I added a lavendar silk tufted headboard to it. I made the headboard with fabric, foam, masonite, and a staple gun.
The prints around the silver mirror are from a calendar (which is my favorite trick to save money and create a clean modern look with art) of black and white photos of Paris. The frames are from the Dollar General store- 3 bucks a pop. Its a high end look without spending much money. Anytime you use something in repetition it looks more expensive.
On the dresser I have 2 silver apples that are containers of junk as well lol. Apples mean alot to me since I cant wait to get back to NYC and silver accessories are clean and sparkly without being overly feminine.
I was so excited to find these prints! they are of NYC landmarks and were gray and lavendar- perfect for my room! And also in the style of art that was popular at the same time hollywood regency was. You can also see the paint detail that I did. I used a translucent pearl glaze and made a diamond pattern (after nearly throwing the laser level out the window in frustration) and put silver thumbtacks every two inches to create a sparkly nailhead effect- God bless anyone who decide to undo this lol. It is suble but fun and modern and young I think.
So there you have it- our newly completed (almost anyway) Master bedroom. These are all camera phone pics- wish I had a better camera- but you get the idea. As soon as I finish another room I will post it as well- the kitchen renovation should be done in a week or two (God bless my husband ) and the living room and dining room are also coming along. Until then I hope You all are well- Im so excited to have followers! lol
