Mirror Wall

In my master bedroom I'm in the process of creating a mirror wall. I want mirrors to cover the entire wall...don't ask me why... I just think it would look neat. So far I have four up and am in the hunt for more! PS- If you notice, there is a sneak peak of my headboard. I'm still waiting on the nailhead trim to come in the mail and then I will show pictures ASAP.

Also, the TV is really annoying and doesn't fit with the whole mirror wall concept at all, but you know a girl has to have her late night TV in bed. I just wish there was a simple way to conceal it.

Guess What Came In?

My bedspread from West Elm!  It's love at first sight!

Now all that's left is a headboard, nightstands, curtains, art, WHEW! So much more on the list of things to do but glad I checked this one off! I'm making my headboard with Dad tomorrow so I'll post pics ASAP!

Curtain Dilemma

Did you know there were soooooo many options for curtains out there? Yeah, I did too. But did you know how overwhelming it can be to search for that perfect curtain to go in your master bedroom? Yeah, me either. I am faced with soo many choices and color combos that my head will explode at any given moment. My favorite two stores that I have found have really good curtain options are Urban Outfitters (which I also go to shop for clothes) and Anthropologie.

Here are some that I like from Urban Outfitters:

And here is one from Anthropologie
The only problem is that they are way to expensive for my taste! What's a girl to do?

So it's been a looooong time two weeks worth of HARD labor. Okay, okay, not that hard but it was a chore! My stencil wall in my bedroom is finally complete! Here is the before picture, and please excuse the mess...we had just finished painting.

To stencil the wall, first I traced the design. Then, I painted the inside of every stencil. Pretty much just followed the tutorial over at Jones Design Company.

Here it is finished! I absolutely love it and I believe it will look great with my DIY headboard and bedspread I'm getting for my birthday.

The only hangup I have is that up close it doesn't look the best. Mainly because I should have got a F in art class. I am a terrible free hander. Or whatever they call it....

By the way, the paint colors I used were Cool Gray by Valspar and Steeple Gray by Olympic. I got both at Lowes. Also, the lamps are from IKEA, my obsession.

Let me know what you think! I'm going now to stare aimlessly at it. After all, a girl can admire her 2 weeks worth of work right?

Decisions, Decisions

So I picked out a headboard that I'm going to try to DIY, of course with the help of my hubby. And guess what? It's neither of the ones I posted earlier, simply because this one would be easier to create in my opinion.  
So the blog has a great tutorial for this headboard and I'm definitely following it step by step. I don't think I will choose the white, and am still trying to decide what will look best with my gray stencils and navy blue bed spread.

Are you ready for this coincidence? See the wall behind the headboard? That's pretty close to the stencil I am using now! Great minds think alike huh? I didn't even notice it until I had chosen this headboard!

So can you picture it? With this bedspread?  
I can't wait to show you my finished wall! It has taken two weeks worth of work, for about 2 hours a day, to complete. I love it already and I'm not even done!
