I am in love with the blue walls and white bedding with pops of bright colors from the quilt and accessories.
Check out the little black dresser. If only you could have seen it before. Let's just so that it was so bad I refused to take before pictures. I honestly didn't think it would turn out well enough to use but thanks to Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint (I used Graphite) and Clear Wax the 'ole girl turned out pretty well. This was my very first furniture painting experience and I loved working on it. So much in fact that I can't wait to find my next project. If you love the look of distressed furniture you should check out Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Even I can't screw it up!
Oh, and I love the faux glass drawer pulls. Very pretty, not to mention affordable.
I decided to go with a frameless antique looking mirror. It jut seems to fit the room.
See the piece of art reflected in the mirror. It says, "Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the wind longs to play with your hair". Such a lovely thought.
I adore this light fixture. Honestly I wanted to use a small chandelier but in the spirit of practicality I went this route instead. As it turns out, it is just perfect!
See the soft and pretty shadows its reflection creates?
When searching Pinterest for decorating ideas I ran across a flower arrangement I fell in love with. This is my knock-off version of it and I'm pretty pleased. I'm still searching for the perfect dark green, textured piece to add and I'm sure I'll come up with it in time.
Okay, see that box window? I plan to hang a straight, fabric covered cornice board - I just have to find the right fabric and I'm honestly not sure what that is. So, future project - in the meantime I'm in search of the perfect fabric. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

So, there it is. Our cottage-like, fresh and inviting bedroom beckoning its first guests to snuggle in and dream a little dream.
