Hooray! It's finally done!
Last year I hired Autumn from Design Dump (Nicole's Sister In-law) to create an e-design for my master bedroom. Ever since Nicole introduced me to Autumn several years ago, I have admired her classy style. My master bedroom has been baby central for eight years and was in need of big change. I knew she would be the perfect person to help make our bedroom a pretty and peaceful place to be. I think it worked, because I keep finding my hubby in there relaxing.
My request for the e-design was to keep the cost low by diy-ing most of the projects, But to be totally honest, even when diy-ing, it's still expensive to decorate a room when you are starting from scratch. I started with two dressers and a bed, that's pretty much it. I stretched the expenses over a year, buying items and materials monthly to make it affordable for me. I love that these projects pushed me to sew and build way beyond my comfort level, and save a few bucks in the process. I have learned a lot over the year!
Here are some of the changes we made to the room-
I had to throw in a couple of before & after pictures! The changes even shocked me!
What I love about Autumn's designs are the details. She has an amazing eye for detail, from the trim on the pillows and curtains, to the contrasting fabric in the bedskirt. I really love everything about the room!
Here is a list of all the diy projects from the past year. Hopefully they will get your wheels turning and help you make a room in your house a place you LIKE to be! Thanks Autumn!
(And thanks Nicole for your hard work on the ikea dressers, they are definitely the highlight of the room!)
