Yeah! It’s here our grand one room challenge reveals and I am excited to reveal mine! It has been fun, but happy that is done. I certainly feel a sense of accomplishment. So Ladies and Gents, I introduce you the Blue and white guest bedroom with a mediterranean feel.
I added blue and white accessories as much as I can throughout the room, plus a punch of yellow here and there. The bedspread color I could not be any happier because the color is the perfect blend of beige that show off the blue throw perfectly. Country Curtains are the nicest people, the best customer service and I seriously cannot wait to use them for more projects.
And so excited to see it all come together… Picture yourself lying around in bed having a cup of tea or coffee looking around, hopefully these hand-made corals will be enjoyable to look at!
Remember last week when I was looking for art work? I ended using these corals prints and stencils.I added aqua coral stencils instead of the Baltic blue.(way to dark) Thanks to Cutting Edge Stencil for donated the coral stencil!(on left)(DIY post later.)
Inspired by a Tuscany/Mediterranean pottery I purchased these Cynthia Rowley plates and the flower pots.
And there is this antique pot… found at coastal treasure shop in town, along with the stenciled tray and yellow pillow all found at good ol Steinmart.
One of my favorites of all my finds were these side tables from WorldMarket, heavy-duty metal and so easy to put together. The bed is also from World Market but I had that for years.
And on to the that dresser…
Do you remember when I changed the white dresser to this lovely find. It was the best thing I could have done. It added depth to this room. I was happy I changed it, the dresser was in my garage and it weighed a ton. I added a mirror that I had made with oyster shells, which added texture to my project. More pots from Steinmart and little daisies plants from Lowes.
And the rug…deep inside my attic I had stashed away my beautiful round rug from pottery barn, basically I did not know where to find a location for it, until this challenge gave it a home it deserves. I happened to be the exact fit in front of the bed.
Is this a place you like to spend your nights? I loved to hear what you think?
I have been anxious to get a final tally of what I spent, my budget was $500. I am also going also to try to make sure I list out all the sources below. I like to give a special applause to those that sponsored this project: Country Curtains/bedspread & throw/ Cutting Edge Stencil/ Lowes /Daisy plants.
If this is the first time to my blog, you can catch up here.
Total spent $826.I spent a few hundred over which is still a good deal. The best part is I used many items that I already had, such as the old doors, bed and rug were in my attic.
