A Simply Styled Dresser.

The bedroom makeover is coming along slowly but surely. I've come to notice that I don't do anything that quickly. It takes a while before I feel like it's finished and can show you the whole room. I guess this is my way of saying sit tight. No reveal just yet!

I showed you the pictures of the new pillows, the headboard and the dresser that we refinished. Then things were at a bit of a standstill as we got the deck torn down and started rebuilding and painted the dining room. More on those another day!



Anyway, here is where I'm at with the bedroom. The mirror we wanted to use with the dresser was a bit too small scale for the space. I decided to offset it to the left and add a couple of prints to the other side. I love the pink flamingo from eastwitching's etsy shop but the heart is just a free printable that I will likely soon replace.


Add in some books, a plant and some accessories (an empty frame!) and it's done! For now:)


Hard to get a good photo from this angle but here is a try! Everything looks crooked!

Annoying.. just noticed the crooked knob:(
I am desperately searching for crisp white curtains for the room. Something sheer and breezy (but not actual sheers!). Would you believe there is nothing around? I'm thinking about these from West Elm. Any other suggestions?

  1. I've run into the same roadblock. You'd think simple white curtains would be an easy thing to find - not su much.

  2. I love natural wood paired with some colorful accessories, digging the flamingo :)
    I have some simple white curtains from ikea, they're a nice weight and pretty cheap...also cotton like the west elm ones (if you live near one of their stores).

  3. I second IKEA. I bought the vivan curtains in white for $19.99 a pair after I saw them in Lauren's bedroom from pure style home . They looked breezy and light and had to get that look.

    here's a link for Lauren's room- it's beautiful & feminine. I'm sure you'll like it.

  4. I cant wait to see everything when its complete. I'll be painting our bedroom this June. I know Ikea has white curtains that are long but $19.99 for two and I love them. Easy to clean and trim if to long.

  8. Really smart idea to just move the mirror to the left and add the artwork. Very cool look! You have such a great eye.

  15. Looks great! I like simple white Ikea panels! I just finally got around to framing my Eastwiching print I won from your giveaway! It looks fabulous in a white Ribba frame with a custom mat!

  17. I was going to suggest checking out West Elm! They have fabulous stuff. :) I just bought these and I love that they let in some soft light. http://www.westelm.com/products/opaque-linen-grommet-window-panel-r296/?pkey=cwindow-panels-curtains-shades

  20. Isn't it really weird how hard it is to find white curtains. I just went through this with my living room. I actually have that West Elm curtain you mentioned in white for the window in our upstairs hallway and I would not saw that it is by any means sheer. It is definitely more of a canvas, heavier look. For my living room I ended up getting the IKEA Ritva curtains. They were only $25 a pair and still provide privacy but are thinner and more breezy looking and almost have a look of linen to them.
