Master Bedroom Refresh

I decided to do a bit of a Master Bedroom Refresh to slowly transition into Winter.

The bedding will have a few more tweaks as we enter into the month of December,

but for now, I thought I would transition to it in stages.

Flower Plate Wall Garden

I asked my granddaughter what she would like to have on the wall over her bed.

I showed her some inspiration pics that I had . . .

~ ~ and she was leaning towards a mural of a tree.

I am not an artist by any means . . . but wanted to see what I could come up with.

I had some “flower plates” in my dining room that I purchased from Arhaus.

I thought hmmmm . . . this may work.

Flower Plate Bouquet

I arranged the pattern on paper to make a template . . . marking the spots where the nails would go.

Then taped the paper to the wall and placed the nails in the wall.

Added a ribbon to “tie it together” . . .

My “sweetie’s” favorite color is red . . .

~ ~ and since there is no red in the duvet cover . . . I thought I would choose the coral shade . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ for one of the ribbons, rather than the yellow.

Everlasting flowers…

Several years ago…I went to a gorgeous showcase home and my heart stopped….

……….an incredible display of floral plates in a 3-D type of design on the wall.

I never forgot that vision….

Until I walked into one of my favorite stores that just opened up in my town….

……….Arhaus….love that store!

When I entered the store…..my heart stood still again….

The wall before:

I saw these beauties…they were clustered on a wall…

I started with three….with the possibility of adding more….

Placed over the bed…that space needed something….

…..something other than a picture….something different.

They seemed to “fit the bill”….

PicMonkey Collage

Now look at my collage…I just figured out how to do this!

After KariAnne’s post today on her “picmonkey features”…..

……….I thought that I would get my “rear in gear” (oh..that rhymed!)….

…………….and learn this feature!

Now, I am going to be collaging away…

…..maybe I will change my middle name to “Collage”….

……….oh that has a nice ring to it…like it better than mine…

……………and don’t ask me what it is!!!

So many changes in store for this second guest room….

…..just a short time ago, this room was filled with exercise equipment…

Really needs paint…on the walls….on the furniture.

I added these cute burlap curtains……

Dreary day…so lots of shadows…but not complaining as the “front” brought us gorgeous temps in the 70’s…

Then later I will move on to create a “work space” for me….in the meantime..

…..there are temporary fixtures in that space.
