Bedroom remodel pics...

okay....so it's been a whole year since we finished the remodel of the bedroom, but it's been a crazy year and every time I would remember that I needed to post pictures, something would come up and I would promptly forget.  Sound familiar? 

Well, better late than never....so here we go:

This view is from the doorway looking in..... the door goes out onto the covered deck...and a cord of firewood....love the smell of freshly chopped wood that comes in through the open window...

The table & chairs are from HomeGoods....one of the only new items in the room. 
The cushions on the chairs I made from old pillows that I recovered.
The fans were bought on sale at Lowes....there are two of them and they are on dimmer switches....I LOVE them.
The heart hooks on the wall were bought at a swap meet in Maui years ago and the bow tie David wore at our wedding hangs there.
On the table is a framed poem that David wrote for me back in 1989 when he was in Alaska fishing.
The blinds are wood and from Home Depot on clearance.



There are 2 closets in the room, one on either side of the table.  They were basic bi fold doors that David covered in thin cedar planking...courtesy of a Pinterest idea.


The nightstands are actually stepping stools from IKEA.  They work perfect for keeping our phone charging cords at our bedside. 

 
These lamps are also from IKEA, but I purchased two of them at a garage sale for $2.00 each.  They aren't my husbands favorite, but he is putting up with the floral until I find something we like better.
 


This window is my favorite feature of my bedroom, in fact, it's one of my favorite features in the whole house.  It is up high enough to keep the privacy, but perfect for morning sunshine and evening moonlight.  With the windows open in the summer, I can here the early morning geese, the afternoon children at the playground and the evening soccer games at the ballfield.
The picket fence was custom made by David for me...it was originally the fence that was in front of the huge picture window in the main part of the house.  When we remodeled and that window was taken out, it became my headboard.  LOVE this.
The pictures are cheap frames from IKEA with music paper in them....the red is vinyl that I placed on the outside glass.
The vinyl saying is one of my favorites....life is a fairy tale after all.
The necklaces around my side of the bed are presents from the kids and Emma over the last years...




This dresser was an old clear wood dresser that I had loaded in the Pilot for donation when I decided what harm would it do if I tried to paint it to match the new room.  This is what I ended up with.
The Wood shelf and mirror came from a garage sale.
The metal cross is from the Dollar Store.
The Blocks are from Hobby Lobby - 50% off.
The metal basket is from a small trinket store in Phinney Ridge that I just couldn't pass up....paid way too much for it.



The mirror is huge!  It is from Pottery Barn and it was a gift from Austin when he worked there....it was on clearance and then he got his discount...a steal for just over $50!
The photo on the left is of us on our 25th wedding anniversary...not my favorite photo.
The door in the mirror is to the master bathroom...which still has parakeet green walls....needs to be painted!


Next to the mirror is our TV case....without a TV.  When we remodeled we got rid of it and it just never made it's way back in.  This stores our out of season closes and books now. This is also a Pottery Barn piece, but we got it for $24.99 from the local Goodwill.
The art above it came from Hobby Lobby and was in there "as is" section for $5.  It is heavy wood and has a small crack in it.
The vinyl is a saying I saw on Pinterest and knew I had to post.
Not all the way in the photo is the laundry hamper from HomeGoods...it's the perfect shade of grey.
The small table is also from HomeGoods and is where David dumps his gym bag and backpack...also the perfect shade of grey.


This is a piece I was given by Andrea...we purchased them at a garage sale and then she passed it on to me....LOVE.
The hooks are from Hobby Lobby.


So that's it....the paint is from Home Depot and I couldn't tell you the color....the carpet is from the local outlet store...

This is officially the first room in the house that is completely the way I want it!  Well, for now anyway.

New Hampton Arts and more weekend designs...

Loved playing with the Bundle of Joy line from Echo Park this month....and of course the coordinating stamp set from Hampton Arts!  I still remember this day like it was yesterday:



 
I am having such a great time working with all the Hampton Arts Stamp sets! Be sure to check out the blog post for the coordinating card that I made too!
 
Okay and another design from the weekend with the girls - while we are showing pictures from the day William was born, this is a good one to go with it:

So thankful for time with the girls....

last weekend.  David and the boys graciously moved all the furniture out of the living room last weekend to make room for 10 scrapbookers to come over and scrap all weekend.  It was tons of fun! 
So it's time to share! 

But first things first!  I am still in shock that I am actually part of the Jillibean Soup Design Team....every month that I get to play and send in my designs reminds me just how lucky I am to be living out my dreams.  Yes, I'm that girl....the one that dreamed of doing what I love and being able to call it work.  So....so...so thankful. I love every minute that I scrapbook...and of course I love all the wonderful people I've met along the way.

Here is one of my designs this month that you can see on the Jillibean blog today:




 
Be sure to head on over to the blog because it is Layout Thursday and you can see all the wonderful stuff from everyone on the team! I am feeling very blessed today to be able to do what I love and be at home to take care of my kids and grandkids...wouldn't change anything. 
 
Okay.....so I'm not going to share all my weekend designs at one time....but, here is another one of William:
 


 
 
Do you remember the day that William slide down the stairs off the deck and got his first real booboo?  Well, I haven't been able to document the aftermath of that accident....but now that he is all healed up and we have new gates in place, I at least felt like I can get the words down on paper!  He isn't a big fan of the gates, but I'm not taking any chances!  I LOVE the picture of him on his tip toes....he was watching Cooper run around the yard....
 
Up tomorrow, more layouts from the weekend and some Design Team work for Hampton Arts!
