So as you know from my first post of the year, I have vowed to redo my bedroom. This is going to be my major DIY project of 2012.
There are 2 main problems with the room.
Problem #1: Everything has to match yellow
The walls are a very bright yellow. This is the color the previous owners painted the walls before I moved in and I never repainted it. If it was an eggshell yellow I would like it a lot more, but it is pretty yellow. Since the room is actually pretty big with vaulted ceilings, I really don’t want to repaint it right now. So, all of the window hangings, fabric, pillows, and bedding has to match yellow.
Daphne will be sorry to see this duvet cover go!
Problem #2: None of the furniture matches
While I would love to buy an entire matching bedroom set, I don’t foresee that happening unless I win the lotto. And since I don’t play the lotto, that means I will have to try to match everything on a budget. The headboard is the #1 priority for my bedroom remodel. I’d also like a new dresser and two end tables. That is a lot of furniture for my budget, but I’m hoping I can find similar pieces at low prices. It really isn’t a bad bedroom, it just needs a little sprucing up!
So, here are some of my bedroom inspirations (in no particular order), thanks to Pinterest!
#1 – Yellow, pink, white, and green
