Our Bedroom Before & After

Welcome to our bedroom sneak peak!  These pictures are a little older and not the best quality, but I wanted to share a glimpse of our work-in-progress bedroom in our first apartment!  Here is the initial transformation from Bachelor Pad to home!

My husband lived in our apartment the month before we got married, and here is what we were working with...can you say BACHELOR PAD!!!  Notice the double stacked mattresses and mis-matched pillow cases....boys...ha!

I found these two tables on Craigslist...$35 for BOTH!  The lamps were both from Target.  (sorry for the blurry iphone pic!)

Ahhh....much better!  This is about 2 months after we moved in.  I bought the fabric from www.fabric.com and had my grandmother sew these panel curtains.  I painted both nightstands a grayish-blue, and added matching baskets to go under that could hold all of our random clutter.

I love walking into a clean, white room, much more relaxing!  We didn't paint the walls because we are renting our first apartment, but I can't wait to move into our first house and add color to the walls!

I would love to have some kind of art over the lamps, but am kind of waiting on any more decorating until we get a house.  After we move, I am most likely going to have our bedroom be more neutral and use these panel curtains somewhere else in the house, or possibly make them into pillows.  But for now, this room suits us just fine.  Hope you like it!

Here is a closer shot of the nightstand and new knobs.

 Most of all, I love this face when I walk in our room!  Meet Miss Finnley!

Happy Friday!  Hope you all enjoy the Super Bowl!  Monday I'll post about some fun Super Bowl snacks I am making for a party with some friends!
