SUYL: Bedrooms

Once again, I am participating in Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life. Today's focus is on bedrooms. We actually have three bedrooms in our home - the master and two guest. We originally planned to use one as an office, but when I moved from St. Louis out of my apartment we had an extra bed and decided to put it to use. That being said - we have plenty of room for overnight guests if anyone wants to come for a visit!!

Here is our master bedroom. We made our headboard ourselves. We don't actually have a "bedroom suit" of furniture. But that is okay! One day when we have a bigger home with more room, that will be at the top of our purchase list. For now, though, I love our room!

Our bedding came from Target. It is the Springmaid Chantal Collection. We picked up the fabric for the headboard at Hobby Lobby, and used a leftover piece of plywood to make the headboard.

Over the top of our bed is a framed wedding photo. Its done in a sepia tone, and looks SO old-world and romantic! I loooove it!  We also framed my garter and Justin's boutonniere and hung those above our bedside tables. That was Justin's idea. He's got way more decorating sense that I do!

This is looking into our bedroom from the door. I am so in love with the green curtains that I found on clearance at TJ Maxx. Seriously. They make the room pop with color without going overboard. That is why we choose to paint the walls a cream color - so that we could just brightly colored bedding and accents.

This is looking out of our bedroom. We put a vinyl quote over the door that says "Real love stories never have endings." The picture hanging on the wall was a wedding gift from my sister, and I am fairly certain it came from Hobby Lobby. The wicker trunk came from Target - I coveted it forever, and we used a gift card to purchase it! I put all of our extra blankets and bedding in it.

This is one of our guest rooms. I am so in love with the wall color with pops of white and black. All of the furniture and bedding came from my apartment in St. Louis.

This is looking in from the door. I am not a huge fan of the black shelving, but it does the job now and there was no need to purchase anything new! The painting on the wall was done by my lovely and talented husband!

This is a picture of the bed. The headboard came from Wal-Mart on clearance before I moved into my apartment for law school. The bedding came from Target - where else! It is part of the Simply Shabby Chic collection. I can't find it online, so I don't even know if they make this pattern anymore. So are the gauzy white curtains. You can't tell very well - this picture turned out dark. 

This is the view from the bed. Again, the desk was from my apartment in St. Louis. It came from Wal-Mart I think - on clearance! It turned out pretty, though.

Finally, our last guest room. The walls are painted a light tan with white trim. This is sort of a mis-match of furniture, but it works.

A view of the bed. This is an antique bed that came from Justin's grandma. It is gorgeous!! The bedding, I believe, came from Overtsock.com maybe? Although I swear I saw it recently in an LTD magazine! On the nightstand we have a picture of our niece, Sophie and a picture of us from our wedding, plus a lamp I brought from my apartment. This actually used to be the bed Justin used. It's a full size. And he's a tall guy. Needless to say, when I moved in, we both couldn't fit in the bed because if we did, he couldn't lay sideways and his feet hung off!

Looking in from the doorway.

Another view of the bed and closet.

I hope you have enjoyed our bedroom tour! It took us almost two years (Justin had this house before we were married) to get everything painted, finished and "complete" in the bedrooms. Now, I just have to work on keeping them this nice and tidy :)

Thanks for visiting!
