When we moved in to our master bedroom in the new place, pretty much all we did was plunk our furniture into place and hang a few pictures on the walls wherever there was a nail handy. My MIL already had window treatments up, which I left in place.
It may be hard to see in the picture, but the swags are tan with purple flowers, and the bedspread is gray and black, so nothing was meshing; and I was stalled on decorating ideas. My biggest issue was, since this is a temporary move; I was not willing to spend a lot of time or money on paint, new curtains, new bedding, or new anything for that matter. Does that sound hopeless or what? I thought so too, which is why it stayed that way for over 3 months.
Barely three days later, ideas started to form, and I emailed my sister telling her that she needed to come soon to help me do a face-lift on the room. She had Saturday free, so we set the date, and she arrived, bringing leftover tulle and lights from our wedding. Here are the results:
Here's the best part of the deal: other than the white lights and tulle from my mom, I found everything I needed either in my collection of stuff, or somewhere in my mother-in-law's stash. The most we spent on this project was 21¢ for an anchor to hold the tulle and lights up on the ceiling. :)
So, I just had to share a little bit of my happiness with you, and now I'll go on my merry way! Have a lovely evening!
