Just a few pictures of our bedroom – these are already semi-outdated considering we have changed our comforter to a plain white one we found on black Friday (for $20!). I also have some pillows on the bed now… but the artwork over our bed hasn’t changed, and that’s the focus of this post!
The “e” and “j” are from Anthropologie, my first purchase from there ever! What an awesome store.
And up close:
For the “&” I was way too cheap to buy another letter from Anthropologie, so I used a door from a cabinet we had removed from the kitchen, painted it white and distressed it. I then painted the “&” with some acrylic paint, and before it had dried, I wiped some of the paint off with a paper towel to make it look distressed as well (this has become a favorite method of mine!). I used this method on the centerpiece for our dining room as well, where I stenciled our wedding date on an old wooden box.
I purchased some chicken wire to use in the frames, that way we can clip whatever mementos we want to them. I’ll admit that we haven’t updated them since I made them, but they’re nice memories to have! I typically don’t hang too many pictures of ourselves on the walls, so it was a nice change to have something more personal in our bedroom.
I think I can call the bedroom officially “done” for now!
Also, I’ve updated the pictures and a few descriptions on the house tour page, so be sure to check it out!
