Master Bedroom Makeover

For our 4th anniversary, I sewed some curtains for our bedroom and did a bit of decorating to surprise my husband.  That was back in August, and I'm just now finally posting this...better later than never, right?

This was my first time making curtains and I ended up doing the two-tone curtains since there wasn't enough fabric in the blue color I wanted.  I love the way they turned out!  Really the curtains weren't hard to make, just sort of time consuming.

Since our budget is really tight, I didn't spend money on anything except for the curtain rods and the candles.  I still have plans for a few other pieces of artwork when our budget allows hopefully at some point.

Here are a few before and after pictures of our bedroom and some pictures of the new curtains.  Enjoy!

*Just a little side note though:  I'm sorry that these pictures are not the clearest and the lighting wasn't great (thus the flash-which I don't like using)...oh and most of them are sort of crooked too...I guess that's what happens when you try to take a few pictures really quick and you're in too much of a hurry to get back to the screaming kids in the other room.

Doesn't that green just make you feel sick?  Me too...trust me, it gets better!

The bed
(yes, the comforter was white once upon a time...we really should have bought one of those duvet cover things you can take off and wash.)   I hope to hang something over the bed eventually.

I hope to eventually put photos all around the verse in the middle

Well, that's it!  We love our "new" room!!

I love it, Sarah! The blue is so calming and comforting.

Beautiful! Wish my room looked that organized and clean! This is one of my goals before the baby comes next summer.
