Before . and . After {Bedroom}

I only have had time for this one post today (I stepped on a rusty fence post in our backyard, and had to use my morning/afternoon to go get a tetanus booster), but I'm really excited about it!! (The blog post that is, not so much the shot.)

I've finally got the first before & after pictures of the new house!! It's just one room today -- the bedroom -- but it's actually a complete room, accessories and all!

So, the before:


The before isn't hideous or anything. There are nice features -- pretty wood floors, and great natural light -- but the room is a smidge vanilla; bland wall color, unattractive trim color, and icky shades.

So now after a smidge of paint, and a lot of looking for the right pieces, the after:

It's different than I had pictured originally, but exactly what I had hoped for!

Bed: Ikea
Grey Sheets: Kohls
Green Velvet Comforter: Ikea, Astrakan
Nightstands: Pier I
Lamps & Shades: Pier I
Antique Hand-Tinted Photograph
Vases and Flowers: Our local market
Wall color: Winter Flannel
