Hi, today was such a beautiful day and boy is it ever starting to cool down drastically in the evening.
I’m a bit sad to say farewell to summer, but sure love the cooler weather for sleeping.
Today I am sharing my bedroom with you. Really though, it has not come together quite like I imagined. I had big plans, but they kind of petered out. Well, more like I kind of petered out. lol! Decided that I just had too many other things to work on right now.
I did get the quilt I made on the bed, but my pillow accessories are just so, so. I really need to make some cute pillow cases. Not happening right now so I just used a bit of what I had around the house.
The wall behind my bed is painted yellow, Colonial Ivory by Benjamin Moore. I had a large canvas picture of poppies hanging above my bed. I knew that it would need to be switched out with something that went a bit better with my quilt. My first thought was to buy a canvas, paint it black, and then stencil words onto it. I realized that I didn’t have any black paint, but I did have chalkboard paint. From there I painted it with the chalkboard paint and used chalk pens. A quick and easy subway art that I will be able to change out for different seasons. I felt like it needed a little something more so I added the glitzy maple leaf. Still think maybe more, but just not sure what.
A couple of things I already had in the room that worked fine for Fall were my burlap wreath and my glass hurricane with the red and yellow wooden balls.
I have a large red cabinet that I have a burlap garland hanging on. I thought I would redo the top of it. It now has poppy and bird décor. Haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Don’t you hate it when things don’t come together quite like you imagined? I do, but sure not going to stress over it. There’s always next year.
I’ll still be having sweet dreams during these cooler nights.
