Mastering The Bedroom

 I worked on the "big house" a little more and sharing my progress with you. My goal is to get it completely decorated inside and out so I can set up the landscaping at least by the end of the year. Hopefully sooner. Because I have so much mini stuff, I want to see how much I can get done on all of my projects using what I have on hand without buying too much more. Also, because I have multiple projects going at once, things take me a little longer sometimes.
 
This is the master bedroom. Maybe one day if I get enough nerve to add an addition to the house this will become a master suite.
 
The picture over the bed will be framed once the right one is either made or shows up. It is just taped up temporarily.
 
If I can find something that resembles a vanity table in my stash, it will be added in there. Otherwise a dresser with a nice mirror will do. I need a place to put some of the nice perfume bottles and cosmetic jars I have already made.
 
I ran a pretty magnet, I planned to use as a poster, across my daughter and granddaughter for their opinion. They both loved it so expect to see it on one of the walls also. :-) A little paint touch up, nice window treatment and we will be good to go!

This room should be finished by the end of the week. I will share with you then.
Almost there!

Both lights work. The pictures in the foreground will go up after the window treatment is added.
Why not use living room tables in the bedroom? I think they work just fine.
The hanging lamps are made from beaded napkin rings!
These are earrings that will be fitted someplace in the room. I stumbled across the jewelry pieces that attached it all to the ceiling while looking for something else lol!
These lights are great for all sorts of things! Watch how they are used here.
The lamp harp cut out and ready for fitting

Re-fitting to the right size

Hole for the loop in the light is made with a hole punch. You can see the thin wire on the top left which was threaded through the top loop of the light and twisted. Then, the wire was threaded through a straw to help keep it straight (next time I will use a thicker wire inside the straws) and it all was hot glued to the ceiling. They got a little crooked during  the photo shoot

Still deciding on side chairs. 
The choice of vanity/dresser will determine the right chair
Those are area rugs on either side of the bed. They make it look like the bedspread is sort of   draping and too big for the bed in this picture

  7. Hi Grandmommy! I love the way that you have made the lamps! I have not seen those little bulbs before but they really do the trick! Using the beaded napkin holders was such a clever idea and the colors are perfect for this Master Bedroom! Keep up the Great work! :D

    1. Hey Elizabeth!
      I am glad you like it! I took a chance getting them from Ebay. I like them pretty well. That loop at the end really makes them easy to work with.
      I hope you enjoy it just as much when the room is completed! :-)
