Adult-Rated Bedroom

Right after signing all our papers
So a few months ago, we bought our first house!  We are learning to be do-it-yourselfers.  Here are some pictures of our progress
It has a mix of stone and brick on the facade.  There is a little area by the pillars where some old wooden rocking chairs
would look super nice to sit in when it is NOT 100 bazillion degrees. 

My pinterest inspiration.

Orange, orange, orange!  We repainted it gray.  
Anthony and I spray-painted our wooden furniture.  It looks really nice, but it is still a little sticky even months later.  We like the look but not the texture.
Ikea curtains--I love these.  They are so different, and they coordinate really well with our gray and yellow flowered quilt without being really matchy-matchy.
Our big window that faces the front.
I had to use my expert sewing skills to take the curtains up on the smaller window.  Such a ninja!

We are needing to find and purchase yellow lamps, but that may be another spray paint project because I cannot find them anywhere.  Eventually, I will get some more pictures of the rest of it.  We just finished up the master bath last week.  More to come later.


  1. I love that you are working on this house together! And the gray and yellow bedroom is fabulous! Congrats! Susan

  2. Our bedroom is done in grey/black/yellow as well! I love it! I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and they aren't yellow... but I saw some really cute lamps with black and white chevron shades you might want to check out! I really wanted them for our bedroom until I remembered that I have no place to put them... (minor details). They also still have several pieces of nice grey/yellow themed pieces of wall art!

    1. I will have to go check them out! Thanks for the heads up!
