A fresh start, designing for the designer

6 Apr

Hey there my little spring chickens!  I’ve completed a great thrifty project for my bedroom that I wanted to share with you.   So my master plan for the bedroom is to construct an upholstered headboard for our bed which sits on the center of one of the walls in the room.  Currently framing the bed are two black night stands (purchased at a yard sale for $2 by my wonderful mother in law!) with matching lamps (homegoods) on either side.  The wall itself was feeling rather empty so I decided we should have a pictures  above the lamps.

The overall theme of our bedroom is classic romance.  I want it to be a nice retreat and a room just for us (my husband and I).  So why not use our wedding pictures as the art for the bedroom?  I selected two classic pictures from our wedding, but they were only 4×6 so I took them to Ritz Camera to have them blown up to 5×7.  I also decided they should be black and white (there’s something so classic about a black and white wedding picture).  For only $6.00 I was able scan the photos , change the size and make them black and white!

I scored big time with the frames too…I found them at homegoods and they are perfect.  Nothing special just a black frame but the thing I love about them is they came with a mat.  Each frame ran me $12.99.  I’m so happy with the way they turned out.  So professional looking!  Final cost for this project: $31.98…not bad at all 🙂

Thanks for reading and I have so much more to share so don’t forget to check back!  In the meantime if you have decorating questions shoot them my way, I’d love to help!  amanda@sunflowercreationsonline.com
