Master Bedroom Makeover

Not that the bedroom wasn't pretty.

It just needed a little pizazz....

Just a little fresher look with a little pop of color...

A change of bedding and some bright touches did the trick....

You gotta have a place to just rest....

I love the wreath in the center of the iron bed frame, what do you think....

I made this pillow from a white fluffy rug I found at Marshals for 14.00.
It makes the perfect pillow cover to add a little fluff.. View outside bedroom window...

This is a side angle of the baywindow view to the back yard. Love the black and white fabric and the pop of pink........

Pink Pink Pink...

Flowers for my husband Michael................. Flowers for me......


I loved finding fabric that matches the plates that I hung on the wall...

Can you tell where Tina the kitty thought she would have a little nap.....on the bed.....
This bust looks exactly like my grandaughter Brittany.....
I should be cleaning the windows instead of taking pictures.....but this is way more fun...

The cover for the bench I made from heavy white cotton and can be removed and washed...Don't you just love useable, washable easy care too....

knew I should be cleaning those windows....

Can you tell I like Pillows

Someone is where they are not supposed to be...too soft to resist I guess.......

Who me....Meow.......
This is all about me you know.....

Thank you for visiting Around the House
