The Verdict is In!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  We're about half way through the week:)  A couple posts ago, I wrote about my bedroom and what the possibilities could be to decorate it a little differently in order for it to match my new comforter set.   I have figured out what I would like to do with my accent wall:)  Did I choose:



And the one I choose is B!!!!  I think it will go more with the theme of my room and give it a classy and elegant look.  I plan on using 3 different colors for my damask stencil on my wall: gray, deep purple, and white/off white.

I need to show you all of the fabric that I bought from our local fabric shop!  I found some different textures, colors, and print.  I went crazy in the store, so I bought some fabric which unfortunately I will not be able to use:(  well at least not now!
Don't you just heart all of the fabrics?  The leopard print doesn't really go too that one is out the front door!

Here is the picture with my new pillows that I have made! On this link you will find my How to for making a pillow:) I plan on adding lavender flowers (possibly) to my ruffled pillow.  Do you think I should add the lavender flowers to it?  I was thinking if I added the flowers I would either make 3 and clump them together by each other or line them up at the top of the pillow.....   Here are the pics:)
Ruffled pillow with flower? I'm planning on adding a little sparkle to the center of the flower too:) Oh, and look at that tree aren't the leaves just lovely?

Or without the flowers?

I will be adding some more pillows to my bed and I'm not quite for sure if I want to keep my big flower pillow or not.  So, I am on a mission to make some more pillows.  Then on to my next project where I will tackle either painting my dresser or painting the walls!!!  I'm very excited to go pick out some paint colors for the walls:)  Wish me luck!!!

Since I'm giving 24 days of Thanks, I am giving thanks for my spectacular friends!  I have a couple friends that have been there for me since elementary school!  That's when you know when you have a true friend when they stick around you for that long.  I truly do not know where I would be without them:)  Love you guys!!!!

  1. Beautiful!!! Love the flower on the pillow!!!

  2. Thanks Renee for your suggestion!! I was thinking it would add a pop of color to the front of the pillow. Thanks for stopping by:)

  3. Great job on the pillows!! I know how proud you are of them, I recently made my first pillows and it was a great feeling!!

  4. It is quite the accomplishment isn't it? It's nice to be able to personalize it to exactly what you want:) Thanks for comment!!!

  5. LOVE the theme you ended up going with! Great colors!

  6. Thanks Lindsay:) I wanted to go for a huge change from what I had before and I think I'm going in the direction.

  7. Where do you buy fabric from? I can't seem to find fabric I love around where I live. I really do love the comforter! Great colors for a bedroom! The walls would look amazing painted a darkish grey with some purple accents throughout. I'm so excited for our house to be finished so I can start doing stuff like this!

  8. Laurie, I we have a couple fabric stores around the area. We have a place called Joann Fabrics and also a locally owned business. I bought my materials from the locally owned business. They didn't have exactaly what I was looking for, but it worked I think:) I agree with you that it is a lot of fun decorating your house:) We've been in our house for a couple years now and I think it's time to update. I just can't wait until the room all comes together!


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog:) If you have any questions then feel free to ask away and I will get back to you!
