Just a snippet

This always happens.

Whenever we install/buy/replace something in our house, my eyes start to wonder to the other elements in the room. The ones that suddenly seem shabby or tired next to the new item in my eyes. Living with me must suck, because I get restless and have this innate need to shift things around. Once, Mr. FC couldn't find his boxers because I had swapped my drawers for his (drawers as in dresser, not underwear....well that was confusing). Don't ask me why. It just felt right. Now you know that he prefers boxers and that was an overshare. Awesome.

So, ever since I made the new linen headboard for our master bedroom, I've had the urge to give the room a small facelift. Nothing too drastic, no HUGE changes, just a shifting around of some things, some streamlining and some new elements (budget-friendly of course) to revitalize the space a bit.

I don't quite have the room put together yet (I got lazy on Sunday, plus The Devil Wears Prada was on TV, helloooo.....so I watched it twice) but here's a snippet.................

pretty trellis (the knock-off version because I'm cheap)
a $10 curvy find all made-over a new bedside companion

More to come.........Let's hope I can pull this room together before I lose interest and forget which room I'm doing. =]

  3. Hey C! Love it when you drop by =]

    It's actually a quilt found at, lo & behold, HomeGoods. I've also seen it at TJ Maxx and it comes in navy & white too. It's perfect for summer (just enough weight/warmth to it). Comes w/ shams and was $50 for the queen size, I think. We have a king bed but the quilt's plenty big.

  5. Can't wait to see the finished product! I was totally drooling over your nailhead trimmed headboard.

    I'm happy that I'm not the only one who gets sidetracked in the middle of projects and "forgets" where she left off!

  9. hilarious. Every time I tell the hubs that we're almost done with *the list* he just smiles and nods and reminds me that once I finish a room I just redo a different one.

  15. Oh - I ALWAYS read your fab little blog - I just never comment! I will try to get better about that! :)

    Did you get the trellis quilt recently? I am going to have to hit up some HomeGoods this week to stalk it out. I REALLY NEEEEEEED it! :)
    Was it in a packaged bedding set - the ones that come in the big clear zippered bags??

  16. Awww thx C!

    I got the quilt about 2 weeks ago and yup, it was in their zippered packaged bedding section. Oh! Also the quilt's reversible, so one side has a white background w/ the trellis and the other side is the color background w/ the trellis in white.

    I'm returning something @ HG tomorrow so I can take a peek for one just in case you don't see any at your store. People don't seem to get trellis fever here. =]

  21. Oooh, I can't wait to see! And yes, the foot and bronchitis is all better. Thanks for asking! (Although, then I developed muscle spasms in my lower back then got hit in the car on my first day back to work. Argh! But all is good... for now. lol)

  23. Michael - I am hitting up the Bloomfield Hills HomeGoods tomorrow. I will let you know if I see it. If you see it at any HG out your way, let me know. Us Michigan folk need to stay together ;)

    FC- thanks for checking your store for me!! I will let you know if I don't find it around here. I am trying to not be TOO hopeful!

    Can't wait to see the room!

  24. FC - I'm really not sure you can top your bedroom before - I loved it so much. But, I know if anyone can do it, you can. And, from now on, when you get "bored" with your "old" stuff, you can ship it on over to me.

    That quilt is lovely - what in the hey is this HomeGoods you speak of?

    I wanna see it the room all together.

    Ummm... now.
