March Madness Makeover

My march madness isn't so much about basketball, but rather a bedroom makeover! I did not intend on this makeover at all, but when I walked into Target last weekend and saw these pillows, I was drawn like a magnet to them, seriously, I couldn't put them down, ask Dave!

Then I spotted the West Elm pin tuck bedding knock off {which I own, mind you-don't judge ;-) } in a pure crisp white and have to have that, too!

Then the wheels started turning! I couldn't possibly keep the old paint color, and well--the curtains weren't going to look good anymore, and what about those mirrors at that antique shop I had been dreaming about??? My train of thought was basically as ADD as you could get.

I was inspired by the drapes and paint color in Suzie's wonderful office {friend from Decor Pad-the best online site for decor chat and advice!} and immediately went on a mini-shopping excursion to pick these things up.

We, I mean I, settled on the perfect shade of blue gray {Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray} and went to town painting! David rolled and I cut in...it's a match made in paint heaven!

Then I purchased the aforementioned mirrors from my favorite local antique mall on sale for $40 total!!!! I was so afraid they would be gone since they've been hanging there for months! I wasted no time spray painting those babies a glossy white, in Dave's words, "If it ain't right, paint it white!" So true in this household! : )

I'm still searching for the perfect throw to put at the end of the bed and some other additions will be made later, and explained in future posts!

As always, thanks for reading! ♥

Everything looks amazing! You know, I have the same exact bedroom furniture from Z Gallerie as you. That is too funny! I love your new pillows and your office looks so great and NEAT!

Nikki said...

I love your master bedroom! Very pretty, and that was a steal on the mirrors.

kasia said...

Ok Please tell me where you got the large mirror above the dresser from. I have been searching high and low and I'm crossing my fingers this was a low find so I can afford it too. Love the makeover.

andrea p said...

Wow, I just stumbled across this room & I LOVE it!
Do you know if those pillows are still available or where I could find something similar...or similar fabric?
Thanks!
