a facelift + a feature

Our bedroom got a facelift, and I am loving the new look. Our room was so neglected -- Is that the way your home is? Every room gets attention before the master bedroom… probably because nobody sees it. Our room needed some serious TLC and to get away from the "matchy matchy" bedroom suit, I sold the nightstands for a whopping $150. That money paid for everything new in our bedroom. So, this makeover was essentially free to me.

The draper chest nightstands are Ikea Rast hacks. They were a time investment, but well worth it. The pillows on the bed are all from Ikea (here & here). The lamps and mirror were pulled from other rooms in our home, and we already had the white bedding from Target. Done!

*Also, check out my feature of "Renting: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" over at MadeByGirl. Jen is one of my very favorites, so I'm beyond honored that she allowed me to share on her fabulous blog.
