First off - I'd like to say thank you TJ Maxx - without your amazing prices & fabulous stock - I would be helpless.

I have transformed my bedroom & I am LOVING it! I wanted to lighten it up for spring & summer, but also bring in some of the turquoise and yellow that I love. Before, my bedroom was nice (and still me), but it was mainly greens, reds, and oranges & it resembled a lot of what my old style and home used to look like. They always say we update our bedrooms last - so true for me!


First off - a new white down comforter. I layered that with a $50 floral quilt & shams. Let me say here - I am shocked that I love this quilt!



I'm typically not a huge floral type of girl, but I adore it. I think it's floral gone a bit modern - and the colors in it are so me!


Then, I scored two new lamps - a steal at $40 each! The turquoise one is a bit shorter so a stack of books makes it right in line! I spray painted some existing frames to bring some pink & turquoise over to the bedside tables. I then headed to my basement and dug around & I found an old floral print I have always adored.


I then topped the bed off with some fresh & fun throw pillows - sewn by me! (My pillow tip - make
envelope pillows. I can sew these babies in a snap & can easily change them around with the seasons!) I am loving the braided scrap fabrics turned into an R for our last name.  It's quite fun I think.


I kept our nightstands dark. I actually like these pieces.  My table is old wood with a chunkier knob & pull, then Jade's bedside table is really deep. I can't remember what its original purpose is, but my Mom will tell us all in the comments. It has two sides that can flip up and 2 big drawers.  It's painted a brown color, but it's old paint and is all cracked showing through its age - the reason I won't paint it!

This is our blogging area & where Jade works when he's drafting plats at home.  It suits us well & I love the cheeriness of this corner.
