With three small children, my husband and I definitely deserve a restful, beautiful room. I created this space to feel sophisticated and elegant without being TOO ornate. The elegance of the furniture is balanced with the simple beauty of the lamps and mirror. My husband has to live in this room, too, so this is a nice balance of feminine and masculine by using black, leather and nail-head trim. The walls are Valspar's "Lighthouse Shadows". The ceiling is "Cream in My Coffee". Since the ceiling is vaulted, we added the molding to "bring the ceiling down" and create a cozier space. Painting the ceiling the same color as the upper wall helped complete this feel.
The bedding was surprisingly purchased at Walmart about 2 years ago. I made the curtains, wall monogram and headboard with a little muscle from hubby. I removed the original "matchy matchy" mirror on the dresser and added this large solid wood one from Homegoods - only $50! Other accessories in the room are from Marshalls, Target, Homegoods, Ross, etc. I successfully convinced my husband to take down the ceiling fan and put up the chandelier instead...bought at Home Depot.
I finally LOVE our bedroom and the feeling it brings us.

I am a bargin shopper and love making something old new or using something in a different way. My curtains are actually tableclothes that cost $10 per window. The chair is a $15 Salvation Army find with $10 of white fabric to recover( not finished yet) and a coat of black paint. White quilt $30 with $4 of brown ribbon added. Dresser painted black and yellow pillows are cloth napkins that were on clearance for $2 you can't beat $2 to cover 2 old pillows.
I find it difficult to decorate a 40+ year old home but I am overall pretty happy with what I have done
