Our master bedroom is in the middle of a makeover. Actually, it is close to done and the reveal will be on here soon.
My inspiration came from the Dolly collection at Pottery Barn.
I love the paisley and script on the other side. So pretty!
Anyway, I decided to paint the room in a color close to the background of this print. I chose the color Dogwood Petal. It really brightened the room.
Very pretty, since it started out as this:
I couldn’t wait to get that orange off of the bedrooms walls. It definitely feels more relaxing now.
We have many more rooms to paint. I can’t wait to show the reveal of this room.
That is what I am officially calling it, a headdoor. I was trying to think of what kind of headboard I wanted. Did I want to go traditional, or did I want to do something different?
I decided on something different.
At first, I was thinking I would make a headboard out of barn wood. So, I kept my eye out and even talked to a friend who knew where I could get some.
This showed up at a local antique store. I knew it was just what I wanted. Down to the white chippy paint. Score!
I love it and I think it is just perfect.
I have a few more things to finish in the bedroom before the big reveal. I can’t wait!
Have any of you used a door as your headboard? I would love to see it.

It was a beautiful weekend! I did not spend it on remodeling or crafting the entire time, but we did update our 1980’s fan.
I have been looking in blog land for several weeks now, and noticed a trend. Everyone is painting their ceiling fans! I was excited to do this project. It was simple too! I followed Thrifty Decor Chick’s Instructions here.
We had to change it up a little, since our fan was made different.
I painted the fan and blades ivory.
Cleaned out the cobwebs, ewwwww.
The husband helped put it all back up.
By the way, I found the shade on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $5.00!
So, after a few trips to Lowe’s, I really enjoy our fan now.
It is FAN-tastic!

I love everyone’s cute burlap creations. Awhile back, I bought some coffee sacks. I love the texture of the coffee sack, but they do tend to shed a lot. It makes me think of picking out a dog! We do have a chihuahua who tends to shed a lot too, but we still love him.
I have a stool that my husband bought me ages ago that does not go with our decor anymore.
There is nothing wrong with it, just the fabric. Last week, I pulled out that coffee sack and began cutting.
I hot glued it underneath and put the legs back on.
It still did not look finished. So, I grabbed a stencil and some linen colored paint. Now, she is pretty sitting next to my sofa.
It was an easy project that anyone can do. Have you covered anything with burlap? I would love to see it! I am planning to do a lot more covering.
