My Bedroom Makeover!!!!!!!!! {Final project for American Crafter}

I am so excited to show you guys my Bedroom Makeover, it has been something I have been wanting and thinking and putting off doing for a LONG time now....
I just kept pretending that I didn't mind the look of my room....
Butttt I was finally inspired to make the room HOME--thank you for the motivation American Crafter!

Andddd this will be my final plea for you to go over and vote for your favorite project---
I just KNOW they are ALL going to be amazing!

My bedroom makeover is completely and totally "me".
I did everything I possibly could fit into the past 3 days---
I feel like it is a perfectly meaningful 
{I have special stories about just about everything in the space!}
special and relaxing space---
everything I was wishing for!

I had fun refinishing all 4 of these pieces!!!

Bed frame:

Ohhhh I have been wishing my husband would let me paint this bed frame FOREVER!
Anddddd I finally just jumped in and did it!
I instantly regretted it while I was doing it....
buttttt now I can't imagine why I didn't do it months ago.

It just lightens up the room SO much!

{and do you remember this old bench/coffee table I up-cycled a few months ago?
Well it has found a new home!}


Next I tackled this dresser.
It has been sitting in my garage since I moved it---my landlords were getting rid of it----
soooo I rescued it.
And I started to think that it might become a permanent fixture in my garage
{my husband started to put garage stuff in it....
and I knew I had to take it over or I would loose it forever}
I hated the waterfall top....
{don't hate me if you love them!}
Soooo I helped hubs cut it off!

Anddd much MUCH better right?!

I like to pretend that it was painted just for me by 
my two blog idols when it comes to decor and furniture!
{In my dreams would I own one of their pieces!}
Soooo I pretend and make my own version!

Night stand:

Sweet and simple, light and airy.

Guess that is all I have to say about this one....
Ohhh except did you notice we have two different lights for our room?
Hubs requested a more "boy-ish" lamp for his side....
hummm sure this works right?


I just smudged it up with paint, distressed it anddd stopped there because 
I like it---
imperfect and all.
I don't mind at all that it is missing a slat on its back....

it fits right in with my home---because it is NOT perfect at all!!

I focused on making everything light and white--while blending grays and tans---
It should be noted that 
I didn't spend more than $6.00 on any of the furniture!
I LOVE up-cycling!

Then when I was done with the big projects:

I did some smaller special and personal projects that make the space feel like home!

Noooo I don't love the number 81 but I sure do love Aug. 1st!
I am such a dork but I am all about special art!

It honestly seems like I can't keep myself from giving everything new looks lately.
& this is no exception!

Much better right?!

what do you think?

I hope you can forgive me for being neglectful of the blog this week----
I have been working hard on this one!

Now----for the last time
I would love for you to go and vote!
Please don't feel like you have to vote for me---just head over vote for your favorite---
I know they are all going to be amazing!

Thank you for all being wonderful and for all of the support---it blows me away and means more than you know.

Gulp, I LOVED the waterfall top, but it looks stunning squared off too-- I wouldn't have thought to do it OR had the guts! LOL

All the pieces look soooo great together, you are an inspirational lady. I've thought so for a long time :)

What a beautiful space! I just love everything about it. And I was drawn to those numbers because I'm a bit crazy for numbers. I like the 8 and 1 art. I think I'll do something similar but with our wedding anniversary year or date or both ...?

I'll figure it out. Meanwhile, I should be working on my son's room remodel (a six month work in progress) and instead I've parked myself on your blog and am going through your amazing projects.

Oh, and I'll be pinning up a storm!
