Just for a quick refresh, here are the "before" phases:
After! Taa Daa!
I am so excited that it turned out as well as it did. It's a solid, squeak-less, shiny black bed!
The curtains are from Ikea and have been in my closet for a while now. It's hard to tell in the picture, but they are a charcoal color. I love the textured cotton look of them! They aren't exactly what I want, but they do the job. We live right by the main entrance at our apartment complex, and so dark curtains are must to keep those headlights out! Ideally, I'd have some sort of colored curtains to add a pop of color. But I am a girl on a budget, so I make do when I can! They definitely aren't offensive.
The duvet cover is from Target and I am totally in love with it! I love the contrast it has with the black piping and design. It compliments the bed and room so well. Love.
Here is a before and after of the entire room. I took these at different times in the day! So excuse the color difference.
I'd still like to get (or "DIY"...) bright colored (and matching) lampshades for the lamps. But I just don't know what color to accent this room in! Any ideas?
I'm going to try to use more of my own pictures of projects and crafts on this blog. I don't want to be redundant! So be patient with me, please.
Stay tuned next week for some DIY pillows!!!
