Hello beautiful friends! The Thanksgiving holiday is over and Christmas is in full swing around here!
We got our tree on Friday. My hubby always wants a huge tree and I have to rein him in every year, but this time, I just let him go for it. I guess because he has been so good about me taking over the master bedroom, I was feeling generous.
Of course, he picked a huge one. We had to cut several inches off the bottom so it would fit in our house:
Our ceilings are nine feet! We decided to put it in the kitchen this year because it’s really the only place it would fit. I didn’t realize Miss Lyla was posing so nicely when I took this lol.
I spent all day Friday and Saturday decking the halls. I’ll be sharing some of it in the next couple of weeks. I’ve included a couple of affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
On Sunday, it was back to business in the bedroom! I am moving quickly in this space and only have a few details to finish, and I cannot wait to see it done!
Today I’m sharing some progress and a peek at some of the elements I found for this room, plus, I’m pulling out my favorite DIY ornament I made from an old sweater!
Let’s start with the bedroom!
The furniture is all completely painted. Here is my hubby’s dresser as I was painting:
Aren’t those hidden cubbies on the sides cool? They are meant for ties and belts and such. My hubby owns one tie and one belt lol.
It’s hard to get an idea of what the dressers look like without the drawers, but here is a peek at the hardware:
Were you expecting Champagne Mist??
I didn’t take too many photos as I was working since I was just trying to get it all done.
Because I saved thousands of dollars by painting our existing bedroom set, I decided I could splurge a little for a few new things to add to the space.
One of the things on my wishlist was a rug. I found this one at HomeGoods that was perfect:
I also wanted to replace the white sheers at our windows with something more substantial. I found these gorgeous DKNY curtain panels the same day I found the rug, but I needed three sets and at $69 a pair, I just couldn’t do it:
Aren’t they dreamy though?
I dragged my sister around with me on Sunday to look for something more in my price range, and we found these:
Only $30 a set…that’s more like it, plus I like the grommets because we like to close our curtains at night.
We also found these for the wall beside the bathroom at Tuesday Morning:
I’m not sure if they are clay, but that’s what they feel like and I just love the texture they add. I found six of them.
I also bought this at HomeGoods that I thought I could do something with:
I pulled this box from my stash:
I have a purpose in mind for it and I may use this as my Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday project for next week.
I also looked in a few places for a light fixture to replace the fan and found this one at The Home Depot:
I could paint the darker parts, or maybe the contrast would be nice? What do ya’ll think of this one? I’ve looked online and everything I’ve seen that I like is so expensive. This is the only one I’ve seen in person that I kind of liked.
And that is my master bedroom progress! I’m so excited about how it looks so far!
Now, here’s my favorite DIY ornament that I made several years ago!
This ornament is made from scraps of a sweater I used to make these sweater stockings:
These were in my Goodwill donation bag and I am so glad I hadn’t had a chance to drop them off yet! Not only did they become our family’s stockings, but I also turned the scraps into mini sweater mittens!
No knitting required here because they were made from sweaters!
I simply made a pattern, cut out my mittens, placed the right sides together and ran a stitch all around the outside. (You could definitely hand-stitch these as well!) Then I turned them right side out.
I used fine fishing line and these beads I found at Hobby Lobby for $1.49 to join the mittens together.
The beads add a touch of sparkle to the textured mittens.
I cut these out of the sweater sleeves and used the finished edges for the wrist part.
I made another set, but I didn’t have any finished edges left from my sweater scraps, so I cut the wrist part a bit longer, then folded them over and sewed them to create a finished edge.
They still look just as cute:
I hope you enjoyed this sweet holiday craft and seeing the progress of our bedroom! I’m still trying to pull the decor together in there, and I’m also deciding on bedding, but I’m hoping to be back here on Thursday to share at least the completed bed.
See ya then! 🙂
UPDATE!! The bed is ready for its big reveal!! Click HERE to see it completed!
