Tangerine Tango - Bedroom Makeover Reveal

Well folks it is finally done...

I still have a few things left to work on, but the worst of it is finished.  I painted the room last week and have been tweaking since... I am so happy with the outcome.  Now I can't wait to go to bed at night. 

The baseboards are waiting to be cut and painted and the ceiling fan is going to be replaced with a chandelier that I also need to paint.

This room is only 9'2 W x 13'7 L.  It was a real challenge shopping for pieces to fit in the spaces and as you see space is tight.  

I replaced the orange table with the old piano stool that I stole from another room... I am liking it much better.  
 
 I found the New York sign for $2.00... the colours were perfect... it seemed fitting since New York is my home away from home.   I hung the curtains high to give the room more visual height.  I will be so happy to get rid of that fan.

 I have searched high and low for just the right cushions for this bed...I shopped the house and low and behold I had the perfect match right under my nose.  My Mother made these and embroidered the baskets before she got sick.  She would be so happy that they found the perfect place to be displayed.


 I am going to re-paint the table on the right side to match the left table... the matching one was about 3 inches too wide for that spot.


I made the corner shelf from scrap wood and trim I had hanging around.  That saved me $50.00 for a bracket. 

 I absolutely fell in love with this bicycle and had to have it... I left it behind a few times and it gnawed at my brain so I had to go back and buy it... it is actually a working bike.  I already had the old bicycle horn in another room.  I knew that would come in handy one day.

 a few new things but mostly things pulled from around the house...

I filled an old bicycle basket with hiking equipment... not too sure if that is going to stay... but it will do for now until I can find the ideal piece to replace it.  I found the lamp at my fav consignment shop.

I am seriously considering painting the dresser... what do you think...would you paint it? 


So what do you think... anything you would change? 

Hugs,

Love what you've done, are you planning on being a decorator when you retire from your current job? As for painting the dresser, please don't.....but if you do don't tell me, I love the beauty of the wood.

great job deb! your room looks great, but it's really going to be awesome with the chandy, and the little table painted.
I like the lamp on the bureau. :) As for painting it, I have to ask-is it a family piece? or something you thrifted? I know a lot of people don't like us to paint wood, and that's usually how I decide these days.
Love your new room!

Love the room. As far as the dresser...if paint makes your skirt fly up..I say go for it!!

I think it looks great too. I love how you put the tv on the corner shelf. Is it easier to watch from bed in that location? Your coverlets look so cozy, love the orange.

my my, I have been away far too long! I love this room! The bed looks so inviting, and your choice of throw pillows is so fitting.
You have such a knack for pulling things together with accessories. Nice job!
