Thrifty Master Bedroom Makover: PART 1




After finishing Kate's room, I needed another project. Our master bedroom has kind of become the "throw everything that doesn't have a home in there" room. All my craft stuff is all over, there is usually a pile of unfolded laundry waiting for me on the bed...it's just kind of sad. I mean, shouldn't the master bedroom be the best bedroom in the house? Well, I've decided it's time it SHOULD be. So, I've been doing little projects this week to try and make it look nicer. Wanna see what I've been up to?


I wasn't looking for the Holy Grail, but I think I found it. I found these for about $3 total at the local thrift store, and with some good old Krylon spay paint I turned them into....


THIS!
*The hurricane glass candle holders are just vases glued to candle sticks from Dollar Tree!*


And, of course with the rolled fabric rosette kick I've been on, I glued some onto some old picture frames. I love how they turned out! ( I did these rosettes really messy and shabby, instead of neat and tightly rolled. LOVE THEM!!!)


I put a canvas that I covered with fabric between the frames. I stenciled on the "B" by printing it out on freezer paper and cutting the letter out to make a stencil. Then I ironed it onto the canvas and stenciled it on with black paint.


It turned out FABULOUS! (pretend that I hung them on the wall evenly, mmmkay?)


I had sewn some pillows a few weeks ago, and they were missing something. I couldn't decide what to put on them. Oh, DUDE. I have to tell you, I made these 2 blue damask pillows out of 1 old standard pillow that I cut in half and used as a pillow insert! How thrifty is that!?!


So, then I made some HUGE rolled fabric rosettes and glued them onto a strip of fabric I wrapped around the pillow as a tie. GENIUS! GENIUS, I SAY! It totally reminds me of something from Anthropologie. LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOVE.

I love making cute things and being thrifty!

Now I just need to decide on a paint color for the walls....any suggestions?

Good grief! I leave you alone for a second, come back, and look at all of these projects you are cranking out! A crafting machine, that's what you are. Where do I start? I love it all. How did you attach your fabric to your canvas? On a related note, I think I will have to blatantly copy the rosette frame- to die for.
