This weekend, I worked on the completion of my master bedroom! I’m excited to show it off to you later on this week. I worked hard at rearranging some of my furniture, hemming curtains, making pillows, and playing around with accessories. I also attacked my dresser with a sander :).
This dresser never turned out the way I intended. If you recall, I had attempted to create a chippy blue piece and managed to just create a chippy blue nightmare. So today I took out my orbital sander and had some fun.
Forgive the poor quality pics. I just took these a few minutes ago and it’s pitch black outside, so granted they’re not the best but I didn’t feel like waiting around for sunlight.
The wooden knobs on this dresser have always reminded me of some kind of nut, therefore I sanded them down to bare wood in places to reveal their nutty goodness.
The post below came from a home in my neighborhood. It’s probably over 100 years old. I had hubs grab it out of a trash bin and then I bleached it and polyed over it to keep the paint from flaking off further. I love it!
The wall in my bedroom are blue, so all of the cute blue peeking through accents my room beautifully.
This round mirror used to hang above my bed. Now, it hangs on my brick wall and reflects my new headboard! Can you see it? I think you’re going to love it.
I know distressed furniture isn’t for everyone, but I am loving the way this piece looks now. It now has time-worn character and charm and looks fantastic in my bedroom. Can’t wait to show you the whole room soon!
