Bedroom Walls V2.0

Need I remind you of the blah V1.0? I set off on a mission to use one of my favorite fabrics, Amy Butler’s Nigella, some leftover Amy Butler scrapbook papers, and some Hobby Lobby finds to make my master bedroom feel less like an after thought and more like a suite.

First, I covered leftover art canvases with the fabric – all you need is an iron to make sure the fabric is fresh and pressed and a staple gun! (I covered this easy, breezy how-to while working on the guest room.) I then arranged these guys on the big blank wall with my Hobby Lobby finds and a few repurposed frames.

Next up, I took these simple, inexpensive IKEA frames and revved them up a notch. The room needs COLOR, this I know for sure! With inspiration in mind from the September issue of Martha Stewart Living, I got my razored straight edge and cutting mat out and got to work!

So what do you think? Better?

Ta Da!

A Little Better!

I’m still not in LOVE with this room, so stay tuned for V3.0. It’s already taking shape in that brain of mine currently dominated by thoughts of a tech client’s project management, but, I’ll hopefully be able to get my thoughts straight and share it with you soon!

Stay tuned for a slightly different color palatte, a quilting endeavor and more!!
