Big Bedroom Reveal

I've been dreaming about this day for months!  I first posted about my bedroom makeover plans around April, but my Pinterest board began months before that.  Here is photo to remind you of its former state...

Flash forward to the present. Here is the complete look. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Below is a picture just after painting.  You can see the lanterns that were previously hanging near the windows.

I removed the lanterns and switched to a more industrial look, with bulbs and cords from IKEA.  The nightstands, or rather stools turned nightstands, are also IKEA.  Paint is non-VOC paint from local store, New Living.  The beauty of non-VOC is no fumes, no toxins.  I slept in my room right after I finished painting, at midnight.  Add some plants and throw pillows from World Market and Target and the rooms feels bright and vibrant. 

Some other corners in the room...

Office nook...

Cozy reading bench (also IKEA, pillows from Target, photos taken in Istanbul at Suleymaniye Mosque)...

A quick budget breakdown: bench $90, side tables $15/each, paint $50, plants $20, planters, $20, pillows $50, lights: bulbs, cords, hooks $54.  Oh, and the beautiful grey vase, featured in the first pic was made locally by John Delafield, and cost $15.  Total cost of new items: $330.

I'm finally inspired to spend time in this room and work at my beautiful desk.  Thank you for reading along.  I would love to hear what you think.
