I'm only showing you this today cause I can't stand it! I just can't wait! I arrived here in Birmingham in time to do lunch with my oldest and youngest and then quickly got to work on J's master bedroom makeover.
We aren't quite finished yet, but me in my anxious mode to show you where we stand I'm gonna show you the partially finished project. Then tomorrow I'll show you the whole thang.
Okay, here is the before:
My camera didn't capture the exact color. It is really more caramel.
first J had this dresser that was buggin the heck outta her. She hated it. So we were gonna do something about it.
Like paint it with my new best friend Annie Sloan
In the process
and after the paint and wax!
then, both bedside tables were almost a black color. That was not gonna do.
Annie Slone stark white to the rescue!
I picked up this mirror at Ballard's Backroom for a mere 49.00
In the meantime, I hung Lil B's B. Is that not adorable!!!
I found these at Target and quickly snatched them up to recover the vinyl
So far so good! Her khaki and white bedroom is comin along!
Today? Making a bedskirt for the bed out of a solid khaki.
Okay, let's break it down.
Shams - 98.00
Coverlet - Target - 119.00
Benches - 79.00 each
Lamps - free
Shades - 30.00 each
Paint - 60.00
Mirror - 50.00

The drapes will be made out of the fabric that I covered the benches with.
Tomorrow I'll show you the completely finish project and a tutorial on how to make a bed skirt. The drapes will come in a little while.
WAIT!!! I finished the dust ruffle! (I promise I will TRY to do a tutorial, it was not an easy task and really not very easy to document) but I did do it this morning!
Here is the finished room. (OH and we are changing those knobs on the bedside tables, they look ick after I saw them in a pic. Stay tuned!
see the difference when it's light out? wow!
Have a great day y'all!
