This is what I'm using as inspiration for the bedroom:

I really like the softness and texture of these two spaces. Our bedroom doesn't get a whole lot of light, so painting the room a nice light color (I'm thinking a slightly warm light grey) would be helpful, along with adding some glass table lamps, repainting my dressers/nightstands and adding some white bi-fold closet doors to our
very unorganized closet.

I also have a deep love for paisley, texture and exotic and vintage styles/prints. Like the moravian star chandelier with the antique dresser in the above photo. I just... love it. I also have a woodblock stamp and would love to stamp/dye some sheets or my old light blue duvet cover and pair them with a paisley quilt/shams. I just think that would be pretty.
Or something like this:

But first things first, what needs to be done:
- Repaint the bedroom
- Repaint/distress the dressers and night stands
- Find two glass bedside lamps
- Find two small 2x3 size-ish rugs for both sides of the bed
- Replace mirror on dresser
- Install bi-fold doors
- Install curtain rods
- Find/make bedding and curtains
- Maybe replace the over head light
- Maybe install new molding
I haven't worked out too many ideas for what to put on the walls. Right now I have two metal stars (that I will probably repaint because they're a copper color now) and another project that I haven't actually started yet.
Which may or may not look exactly like this.... from Pinterest
For the time being, my friends Raine and Kal are staying in our guest room/sunroom with their kitties and dog so this project will have to go on hold until after their living quarters are set up (which apparently is happening today - I'm so excited for them!) and I get back from vacation. You know me, I get twitchy if I go too long without painting something.
