The Bedroom Re-Do Reveal

I think I am finally ready to reveal my big bedroom redecorating project! I'm not 100% sure about one of the paintings (whether it is staying put or being replaced) and I'm not sure that I won't hang more up eventually, but I am showing you what I've got so far. Like my Christmas tree, I think it looks better in person than in photographs...highly skilled interior photographer I am not!

First, I want to show you some before pics of the rooms so that you have a point of reference for the re-do. I do want to ad something first (I know, I know, all the caveats!). It didn't occur to me that I should take "before" photos until I had unloaded my dresser and nightstand and stripped the bed for the guy that was coming to purchase the furniture. So, the room isn't at it's "best". In fact, it is probably at it's worst (complete with paint samples up on the wall)!

These pics start pretty much as you walk in and turn in a circle around the room...












Now for the redecorated room (I'll try to do the photos in the same order)...

The above photo was taken before I gave up and packed up the tree in the garage!

a little detail on the dresser...
I think it needs a little more "something", but I'm having a difficult time finding "something" that I like.


don't get me started on these curtains and curtain rod!

newly recovered chair

new headboard, bench, etc.

newly painted bookcase, and i got this picture for Christmas last year and just NOW hung it!

new sconce on the wall and metal hanging has been moved to this spot

I'm still trying to take a photo of "the wall" that has a little extra on it...


I didn't want to cover up this wall, so I was having a hard time figuring out what to hang on it
I came up with these things for above the bed...


Well y'all, that's mostly it. Like I said, I'm still tinkering with a few things here and there, but I'm pretty happy with it. I will reiterate that I think it looks better in person than in photos!

It looks fabulous. I too love the medallions above the bed. Where did you get those? I need something on either side of the painting above my bed and I think those would be perfect. (Sorry to steal your ideas.)

You did a great job! I'm very impressed.

Just found your blog so forgive me. The rooms looks great. I like the furniture. The curtains would look good when opened if you moved them to one side of each window and had a draping effect. Know what I mean? A tie back to the left of each window. Wish I had a picture to expalin myself better.
