If you look around, you will find that miracles are happening all around us, all of the time. Some may be small, and some may be monumental. Such as making it home yesterday, from Az., without Conner puking. (more on this, later) See! Right there, a miracle.
Another miracle happened within the walls of my master bedroom, my nest of lovin', my escape, just last week. (Get your minds out of the gutter people!)
Last week I patched and painted the last nail hole in my walls. My husband hung the shelf above our dresser and I carefully placed the last decorative nick knack in it's reserved and well thought out, spot.
It is truly a Christmas miracle.
And it only took one thousand, three- hundred and two days, 5 hours, 14 minutes, and 8 seconds, to finish.
Here are the results of my bedroom redo!
(click on the images to make them gigantic so that you can REALLY see the glorious-nous of my bedroom re-do)
My budget was small for this re-do. The most expensive thing that I bought was the fabric for my curtains. The total for the fabric, thread and trim (JoAnns with 40% coupon) was around $86.00. Not too bad for custom made, floor length curtains!
My headboard and the small oval table were free. I've owned them for several years now. The Garage Queen Diva (my mom) bought both of them for maybe a total of $10. I kid you not people!
The headboard was total "eighties-ish" so I sanded it down, primered it then painted and distressed it. The table was already painted and distressed but they did a crummy job on it. That is my next project.
My bedspread and accessories were on clearance at Kohls. Originally priced at $199.99, I got them for $69.99! Score!
Just to let all of you know, this bedspread was not my original ensemble that I had purchased. I loved my prior "spread" much more. (sniff, sniff)
Me+stomach flu= total destruction of the prior, much beloved bedspread.
My two lamps are my favorite things that I bought for my nest of lovin' re-do. They make my heart go pitter pat. I bought them at Target! The lampshades were free, cause I purchased them with a gift card that I received. Yup, it's awesome.
The paint was free also. Me and the hubs received a gift card to Walmart from my little brother Justin, for Christmas. The paint is basically the cheapest brand you can buy there, but I didn't have any problems painting with it. It was all good.
