This project has been about 6 weeks in the making, primarily because I've been working during the day, I had to wait for a day off to paint, and I had to borrow a truck to pick up the new bed. I went all out though... it was time for a change. I re-painted, hung curtains, painted the fan, changed wall decor, painted end tables, got a new bed & lamps, and cruised etsy for some unique accents. My hope was to keep a Mediterranean-beachy feel but update the room to make it brighter, lighter, more modern, and more sophisticated.
Hope you enjoy the end result!

(Curtain tie-backs match some of the old accent pieces in the room... $4.99 at Marshall's!)
(This fan was originally a horrible faux wood color... blah!)
Here are some of the rooms that inspired the project:
(I love the combo of black, white and yellow in these rooms.)
(Rachel Zoe's Missoni-esqu room inspired the pillow choices.)
(That bed! Those lamps! I love the simplicity of this Real Housewife's room)
Some yucky before pics...
(The end tables before I painted them- doesn't look right with that new beautiful lucite lamp!)
I stuck to a budget of $300 by repurposing what I already had and taking advantage of Ikea and Marshall's prices. I think I'll put the drill gun away for awhile :)
