Master Bedroom Progress


So happy to have made some progress in our bedroom. 
 It was an unbelievable mess for such a LONG time. 
 There is still much to be done but so thankful that we are moving forward 

This before pic is not great but it gives some small perspective into the room. 
 I had just finished painting the bed when this was taken. 

Here is an "in progress" shot from the same view point.

A pic of the curtains and pillows. 
 Not sure how I settled on this color scheme,
 but I like the cleanliness of the white,
peacefulness of the blue and cheeriness of the red.

And I am instantly filled with warmth when I read the chalkboard
we are loved
by each other
but most importantly, by our Jesus.

I pin ALOT! 
 But mostly that's all I do. 
 Pin, pin, pin but never make, make, make.
However, I was able to get a quick sewing project done that was inspired from a recent pin.
 I follow an amazing photographer Laura Winslow's blog. 
She shares great photo ideas and on Wednesday's she does a post specifically on wall art.  Which I love!  So, while reading her blog I saw this little cutie.

 I loved the lighting, orange chair, and sweetness of the photo but was especially drawn to the shirt/dress combo the little girl was wearing. I wanted to try something similar. Luckily, we happened to have a shirt that was too short and some coordinating orange material for the ruffled suspenders and dress at the house.

Behold my copycat version of the dress.
