It's Finished!


A couple of months ago, I mentioned that I was loooking for new bedding for my bedroom. I've had the same comforter for about six years and was ready for a change. Unfortunately, I couldn't seem to find anything that didn't cost several hundred dollars or that was affordable but came in a tacky "box" set. As luck would have it, I was visiting the Crate and Barrel website, just for fun (to covet) and found this lovely duvet on sale for $48. How could you say no to that?!


Armed with new bedding, I had my mom come over to help me rearrange my bedroom - along with the addition of another bookcase given to me by a friend. All it took was an afternoon and I now feel like I have a brand new space. And I think the final cost was under $100 total. Awesome!




Photos of my old bedroom for reference. These pictures actually look nice, I think. But believe me when I say that the whole room had become dingy and completely overwhelmed with books. Now, I love my books and will never throw or give them away - so I was stuck with about 5 three foot stacks of them behind my bedroom door. The new room fits them so well now!

I like what you did to your bedroom. It's amazing how the addition of a new duvet and a little rearranging can make such a tremendous difference.

Omigosh, Lucy, that's GORGEOUS! It looks so comfortable and homey and fresh. I love the blue and orange. I'll bet mom had lots of fun. XD

Yeah - John, you saw it when it was all crowded and dumpy! It makes a big difference just being able to walk in to a space that feels open!
