quick and easy master bedroom makeover

as the time draws near for us to leave this house i feel like i want to document the rooms a little better for the memories.  and since i recently did a mini makeover in the master bedroom i thought i would start there.

this is the before:  the putty-ish color of the walls is what started the project. :)  i was out to neutralize and go lighter.  somewhat tricky with dark furniture.
another angle from before

we painted the walls super light
faced our bed a different direction
replaced the lamps
added a $3.00 garage sale mirror to my nightstand
changed the bedskirt to a solid white one
splashed a little color with a soft throw from tuesday mornings

and if we were not moving that fan would beouttahere!

my nightstand.  simplified and updated.

i also switched out the bleh rocker for my fun blue chair!
i have added this post to Met Monday!
