Bedroom Makeover

Since Mike and I moved into our home 5 and a half years ago, we have not touched our bedroom, as far as painting it or decorating it...even somewhat.  Our poor room had been neglected for far too long, and it was high time we did something about it.  We spent one long weekend painting, getting the furniture delivered, decorating, etc.  It turned out awesome!!! 

Okay, I'm swallowing my pride and posting a before picture.  The only reason I have this picture of this disastrous room is because I needed something to use when I looked online at paint colors.  Here goes...
It's hideous.  seriously.  don't say I didn't warn you.

See?  Yikes. 
The only type of wall furnishings we had in there was beautiful artwork done by none other than Elijah Hall, himself.  He gifted us with our very own personal drawing, right above our bed.  I don't know if you can see it, but if you look closely, you'll see letters, squiggles, drawings of playground equipment and, of course, cars.
It was darling, but it had to go! =) 

So now, here are the after pictures:

Ahhhh...much better! 

I'd like to get a couple of small, old books to put in the large frame.

I made this earring hanger after I saw a picture of it on a craft website.  She had a vase similar to this one in the tutorial post, and I thought it was too cute, so I copied that, too! I also made a frame for my mom and my mom-in-law for Mother's Day!  I know...I should have started the wire up higher.  I fixed that on the one's I made for mother's day! :)

It feels so nice to have a nice place to rest at the end of the day.  It's like my own little sanctuary.  I love it!
