I’m doing a happy dance right now, because our bedroom is finished! This room is sweet, simple and just feels like us. So far, we’ve finished our kitchen and bedroom (next up is the art nook – YAY).
Before we moved in, I took photos of each room in the house. I love a good before and after! The rooms in the bedroom were originally a light green. We painted all the walls white, which if you know me, shouldn’t surprise you.
The painting pictured above might be one of my favorite pieces of art in the entire world. There was a time when Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was the place to be (now I lovingly refer to it as “Dirty Myrtle”). This painting is of the Myrtle Beach Pavilion that has since been torn down. I used to spend summer trips in Ocean Lakes, so it’s like a piece of my childhood hanging on the wall.
The dresser has been passed down from my grandparents. We gave it some love (paint and new knobs) a few years ago. My maw maw gifted me the candlesticks from Mona’s on Main in McAdenville, North Carolina, and I absolutely LOVE them.
In case you are unaware, I’m the Facebook marketplace queen. I snagged the mirror and matching headboard (not pictured, because it’s still a work in progress) for $50. What. A. Steal. I painted it white, placed it in the corner and called it a day.
I’m all about the details and pieces that mean something. When my cat passed away (cue the tears), I had Jillian Darville Art paint a photo of him for my mom and I had a print made for me. She also painted the fruit print we have in our kitchen (see the kitchen reveal here).
I painted the “Be Thou My Vision” piece. I’ve had it hanging in all the places I’ve lived since college, and it was the hymn we chose to be a part of our wedding ceremony.
I keep the map photo Asher made me in college on my nightstand. It says, “You’re worth every mile between us,” and has a map of South Carolina and Virginia. It’s my favorite thing he’s ever made for me.
Decorating the mantle was both fun and frustrating. I shuffled through the artwork we already have and pulled out some pieces with height variations. I love a mix of modern and ornate, and I love how it turned out!
Slowly but surely, we’re making this house our home. Thanks for following along, friends.
