Framed!

I was inspired by Rachelle over at Fingerprints on Fridge and her frugal yet fabulous bedroom makeover. I spied some empty picture frames on her bedside tables and the nightlight went off in my head.  I just had to steal borrow this idea!  I found two frames at the thrift store for a totally of $9 (as well as some other great purchases).
Added some glossy black paint from another project and ....
Stuck those puppies right up on the bedside table.
I also swapped out my tone on tone duvet cover and shams for these fresh "tidy whiteys" (a Home Goods find) for a fresh, summery look.  I'm loving the wrinkly shabby chic meets boutique hotel look and feel.
Here's the before:

While I'm at it, I'll show you my Grandma's pretty crochet handiwork on our pillowcases
 I can flip my Ikea accent pillows to the red side if I want to change up the bed a bit.
or keep them on the white side.

Which do you like better?  Do you change up your bedroom for the seasons?

Nice job. The bedroom looks very inviting. I like those wall mounted candles as well.

Aimee said...

Looks beautiful! I love it, now can you come do mine??

Heather said...

How do you stay so motivated? It looks great, Heather. I just change out bedding... I have big ideas but never seem to quite get there:) C'est la vie!

Marissa said...

LOVE those pillows! No, I've never changed with the seasons, but you're making me wanna try it out! Your room looks FABULOUS :)

Jami said...

I heart grandma's pillowcases!

That looks fantastic! Very dramatic, yet soft and romantic.

I'm doing a whole bedroom redo a scrap at a time, but there's no hurry- it's always summer here!

Looks great....I'm still working on our MB makeover. I don't change with the seasons, but I just seem to change (move things around) often?! It's a disease/hobby :)

I love your craftiness! I want to go thrift store shopping with you sometime - you always find such wonderful treasures!!

Wow!! Thanks everybody!

Katie said...

Oh, yes I do! I have gone the way of white comforter as well. Your bedroom looks positively havenesque. Good work girl.

Look fabulous, Heather! I love the empty frames look, too - I might have to steal that idea, as well! And isn't it amazing how much of a difference just changing out the duvet/comforter makes in a room? We just got a new white comforter on sale at Target - and it totally transforms the whole room. Love it! (and yes, I definitely change out tons of stuff for the seasons!)

I love the look of the frames propped up against the wall! They look wonderful. :)

I also love the white bedding you are using! And what a cute pillow from IKEA~ I missed that one! :)

I hope you have a great weekend!

Those frames are pretty neat. And I really love the crochet on the pillow cases. How sweet. I like the red side of your accent pillows best. I'm trying to change up my livingroom with red pillows, just lookiing for the best fabric pattern to make them. :D

Rachelle said...

It looks GREAT Heather! :) I love the star, I might have to incorporate that into my room too! :) I like the white pillows, but the red is a nice pop!

That's a great look. I don't change up my linens for the seasons, but I should start.

Barbara said...

This looks terrific! I love changing up my linens with the seasons. It makes the whole house seem refreshed.

I never would have thought to use frames like this, but I really love it! Once we get some nightstands I might steal this idea too. :)
