Room makeover

It all started with my desire for new bedding. I had been eying Anthropologie's Nimbus Jersey bedding but didn't want to spend the money on it. So, I made my own and posted about it back {here}. After finishing it, I decided that my room needed paint, and some lighter accents to match. 

Here is what it looked like before:

 Nice new white bedding with dingy walls and black curtains.

Here is the after, with some paint, new curtains and rearrangements:

Don't mind the stack of diapers and miscellaneous drinks on the bedside tables. that's how we roll.

The walls are still bare- my next project in progress has been painting a bunch of my grandmother's frames and developing photos and making artwork to add to these walls. I'm also hoping to put a chair and a table here...

I love how much lighter it is. I'm also collecting fun pillows to add some color and fun.

Do you like it?
