I have been working on my master bedroom for decades. OK, about ten months, but it feels like decades. I still have a naked curtain rod hanging, sparse wall space, a dresser that needs to be painted and all sort of things, but I’m getting there! I was hung up on our side tables for a while. I wanted pieces that provided good storage and were similar in size, if not matching. It took a few months, but I finally came across a pair of 1980’s chest of drawers and knew I could make them work.
This is the before. Yikes, I know, but they were really sturdy. I wasn’t crazy about the lines, but I immediately pictured them with a coat of white paint and mirrored drawer fronts and top.
I love how they turned out!! Very glam and not 1980’s at all. I’ll write a follow-up post with the details, so stick around. If you’re interested in making my bed canopy, you can find a full tutorial here.
I also followed through on my idea for making a large “2” and “5” to add to my Christmas decor. I made them out of purchased papier mache numbers, glue and German glass glitter. I used the same method I teach in my Glitter Letter Tutorial.
I like holiday decor that’s simple, subtle and elegant. Just to add to the ambience, we’ve had snow flurries on and off for two days. I love this time of year.
