Mini Bedroom Makeover

June 22, 2010 at 10:28 pm 1 comment

As I have said in some of my previous posts, you can really change the look of a room with a few inexpensive items.  We changed the look of our turquoise bathroom by adding a new shower curtain, matching towels, and a cool rug!  For our master bedroom, once we decided on a color scheme, decorating was easy.  Jeff and I decided to go with dark brown and blue.  The first step for us was picking out a duvet cover in those colors.  After a lot of looking around we finally bought this one from Bed Bath and Beyond.

We then added some new curtain rods and a nice set of curtains I found at JCPenney.  We may paint the bedroom, but I’m not sure of the exact color yet.

Here are the before and after photos:

The previous curtain rods were very old, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were originally put in when the house was built in 1962!  Also the curtains that the previous owners had up were ugly and covered in cat fur so we had to take them down and replace them with the temporary ones that you see in that photo.  They didn’t really match anything, we just got them because they were cheap and the right length!

This is how our bedroom looks now. I really like our new duvet cover, curtains and curtain rods!  We went with chocolate brown curtains because there is a lot of blue in the duvet cover including the bed skirt, which is not shown in the photo.  We still need to get some artwork or photos on the wall, but overall I like the look of the room.
