My friend, Debbie, finally got her bedroom done. She’s changed out the linens in here a couple of times in the last few years and finally found something she wouldn’t get tired of so fast. I think it turned out fabulously.
She will ask my advice on decorating projects, but then again, she has a good eye too and knows what she likes. She finally settled on this pretty robin’s egg blue bedding, found some fabric for drapes and shams and got it done.
She found the comforter set, I think at Belks and then added her own fabrics for a more custom look. The paisley with the rusty red tones really accent the blue fabric.
We went shopping one night looking for drapery hardware and I told her we should try Lowes. Lo and behold, these pretty coppery rods were on clearance for around $12 each, if I remember right. Great price on hardware and the copper tones pick up the red in the fabric so well. Debbie made these drapes all by herself and she is not an expert seamstress (or so she tells me). I was totally impressed by how they came out, lined and everything. That’s not a separate topper, but it’s sewn together with the main fabric.
I love the contrast of the greeny/gold walls (Sherwin Williams Harmonic Tan) with the fabrics and it was already here from another variation in this room. Luckily, it worked out great with the new fabrics too.
We found a pretty piece of artwork, an original oil, that has all the colors of the room in it. She’s going to paint the frame a darker color to work better. All the furniture is new to the room too. This painted chest is a good accent piece.
This is all Broyhill furniture and I helped her pick this out too last year. It’s got some rustic charm, but still traditional (and it’s dark, dark brown not black). I just heard her say she almost wishes she had not bought a set of matching bedroom furniture and gone the eclectic route. That’s OK, we have other rooms to work on, Deb. I’ve had to gently lead Debbie into the world of vintage finds and she didn’t come along all that easy, but I think I’ve finally convinced her of the beauty of vintage and painting old pieces. 🙂 She even said she wants to go yardsaling with me. Now, that I’ll have to see to believe!
Debbie styled the top very nicely.
And has fallen for the birds like so many of us have.
The Pottery Barn Nest pillow was a present for her 50th birthday, from her kids, I think. It’s perfect in here!
And the bathroom got a makeover too. That soft blue-green made it to the walls in here. This is Sherwin Williams Quietude, one shade darker than my Rainwashed. Lovely color, huh?
She repainted the cabinets too and added a little glaze.
Along with a vinyl saying over the window, appropriate for this space.
All ready for a soak in the tub.
I hope you enjoyed Debbie’s master bedroom makeover. I thought it turned out so great and wanted to show it off for her. We’ve been friends now for 4 years and love hanging out together.
I showed you their farmhouse here and here, if you’d like to go back and see those pics. They live out in the country with other family members nearby and have a beautiful piece of property with a pond in the backyard. A true Southern farmhouse style in an idyllic setting.
I’ve got a few more updates of Debbie’s house that I’ll show you later. She used the beadboard wallpaper in a powder room AND my thrifting habits are rubbing off on her finally. 🙂
