In the summertime in South Jersey, everybody goes Down The Shore. Not to the beach, not TO the shore, but "Down the Shore". If you say anything else, you're not from Jersey - you're a shoebie. But that's a whole other post. In this post I'm showing off my master bedroom and how I infused color to give it a more beachy feel.
Here's the before:
And the after:
Here's a breakdown of what I did. I added new nightstands, purchased at a church flea market last year for $4 a piece.
Next I spray painted the lamps sky blue.
I then added a vibrant turquoise blue pillow to the bedding and a small sunburst mirror over the headboard.
I still need another pillow, just haven't found the right one.
I also added some watercolor paintings I got at a yardsale last month for $2 a piece. LOVE these!!!
I almost made a gi-normous mistake and only bought one! The other one had a small water stain. But the owner talked me into getting both and I'm so glad I did.
They're so beautiful and the colors go perfectly in the room.
After that, I decided I wanted to add color to the headboard. Not wanting to spend any more money, I opted to use leftover paint, cause I'm cheap like that. I chose a soft, pale yellow that's in my living room. It's Baer Paint in Havana Cream.
My dresser was given the Chalk Paint treatment in Provence, followed by the obligatory distressing, sanding, staining and waxing.
I love how this turned out!
What a difference!
I added accessories to bring more color.
Denise picked up this beautiful antique foil picture at a yardsale for $2 and let me keep it ;)
I love how the room looks and feels now.
Have a fabulicious week!
