Bedroom Mini Makeover

I bought a "new" bedspread at the auction on Saturday and of course that meant our WHOLE bedroom had to be redone.......lol!

This beautiful chenille bedspread was a steal ......
at $2.50!  

They had a big pile of them at $2.50 each and I chose this one and a solid white chenille that I will show you later.

I thought it was time to refresh both sides of the bed....so, I moved out the wicker bedside table and replaced it with a round table.(like the one on the other side of the bed)   I also added a small chair and a white wrought iron display table.   
H painted these mirrors white, and I put one above each bedside table.

I love to use mirrors in my decorating!  See how it reflects the bathroom vanity?

I am using a pinkqua theme in the bedroom now....so, I have out some vintage pillow cases and a sweet tea set to help carry out the theme.

I added a mirror to the other side of the bed and replaced the wicker chair with a smaller chair that kind of matches the one on the other side.
I also added a new lamp and floral design to the side table.

Here is a before on the left...after, on the right.


I love to "freshen" up a room....don't you!

  20. What an amazing difference those mirrors make behind the lamps! I have similar type bedside lamps, although not that gorgeous round shape, so I am going to "borrow" this idea! I already have one mirror on hand that will work, will have to be on the lookout for another one. FYI, if you go to Lowe's in the lamp section, they have little antique looking key type on/off knobs that you can easily unscrew the old knob and screw the new ones on, then you can add a tassel or something! Love your bedroom, and your whole house!
