how to make $10 go a long way / / FINAL BEDROOM TOUR

FINALLY!!!!!!!! Here I am - with my long promised BEDROOM TOUR. *throws imaginary confetti* 

 I got my paint (dramatically named "Driftwood") at Menards - WHICH IS LIKE THE MOST FANTASTIC STORE EVVVVEERR. Grey paint is super hard to pick. I DID NOT WANT IT TO TURN PURPLE OR BLUE OR WHATEVER. it had to be grey. And, I think it turned out perfecto. 

 ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNDDD *drum roll* did anyone notice something different about my bed? YES. YES. YES. I do indeedy have my pallet bed - and for frrrrreeeeeeeee. I do love that word. *grins* Making the bed was super simple, thanks to my dad. I figured out how the pallets needed to be laid, he brought his handy hand saw and I quickly was testing my new bed frame out. I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH

Let's talk about my square prints here for a second -- *screams* -- GUUUYSS square prints are like pinterest  BUT on your walls. YESSS PLEASE. 

I was so encouraged by the fact that my paint only costed $10. It brought SUCH a face lift to my room. If you're willing to dedicate a day in your room, watching random period dramas and I Love Lucy marathons, wearing paint clothing and covered in said paint -- ITS SO WORTH IT. 

What is your favorite part of my room re-do?
Square prints - yes or YES??

(and, say, if you want to see how my bedroom has changed - here are some before posts 1 - 2

  2. I LOVE the shelving, and lights, and open space. You have my kind of decorating taste; keep the floors as open as possible while having just enough not to look bare, and then use those walls to expressa thyself, haha :).
    So, how do you go about getting square prints?

    1. YES!! so so so YES! My mom wants me to get a rug, but my feet get SO dirty (after all, I am THE BAREFOOT GAL) so I figured once the colder season hits, I'll get a cute fluffy one. but for now? I'm staying wood.

      I got them off of Snapfish! I just went on pinterest and saved some faves to my computer, uploaded them online and printed 20 for around $4! Super fun :)

    2. Ohmygoodness your room!!!! Its absolutely gorgeous!!!! *squeals* I want my room to look like that!;) Right now, my famly is renting out a house so I cant decorate my room or paint or anything so I'm saving up ALOT of ideas for when we get our own house and I can decorate my room!;) I love that clean, bare, wooden floor look for a bedroom! As for the square prints--YES! I got on snapfish lol, and I'm gonna buy some as soon as I save enough money;) I REALLY loved those!

    3. I DO TOO!!! my mom said I should get a rug, but I think I'll wait until the colder (AHH NO NO NO) season sets in. Then it will be super cozy! But for now, it'll be country. ;) They turn out great!! Just be sure to click that button for a matte picture. I accidentally forgot to do that and got gloss. :P I don't like them the same. uhhgg.

    2. We are at the end of July. :). I keep looking at Pinterest for different shade ideas, but I'm sure I'll change my mind when I'm in the store. Lol! I want some prints now.........=)

    3. oh, is that hard for you? I've only moved once -- and I was 6, so it's like I've lived here at my little farmhouse my whole life. <3 You should get some prints!!

      Delete
    4. I've been at this house since I was four, so it is a little hard; but we will be closer to our church, dads job and most of our friends. So that's a huge plus! I wouldn't want to leave a farmhouse either. I'll be posting pictures on my blog of our new house and the projects we will be doing to it as the time draws nearer! And you know, projects are always fun!!

    1. Thank you Jessica!! eeek!! I LOVE HEARING IT LOOKS LIKE PINTEREST! <3 <3

      uuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhg. Okay, so I trashed my last few days and started anew today. I flunked for two days in a row because I went out with friends and EVERYONE WAS HAVING SHAKES. I got weak. BUT I'M HONEST SO THATS GOOD RIGHT?! I started back again today, and I already feel 5x better. I'm going to stick HARD this time. How about for you??

    2. I was hoping that would come across as a compliment. :)

      Yes, I'm going pretty well, although seeing as we're being honest here, I did cheat once. But, I felt it too. (I know what you mean though, when people eat it right in front of your face, and it looks and smells so good, and you can practically taste it.. :P) Anyway, good on you for going for it again! And the moral support is really helping me, by the way. :)

    3. Aww, yes, it did!! <3

      YES IT IS SO HARD WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT. :| Its helpful that I got my dad, mom and older sister to take this sugar fast, as my mom calls it. I'm doing good so far! I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. oh good, you're really helping me too! I haven't heard much from any other girls yet. ;) you're fantastic!

  10. I like the twinkly lights, and those bookshelves (book-nerd here. Love me some nice bookshelves. ;)), and your bedspread color looks like a color that I've been into lately! :D Well, a little different, but I've been liking turquoise-y colors. ;) And your paint job is nice!

    Seriously, good job on your room, Julia! It's so bright in there! :D

    And yes to square prints! :) ;)

    1. BOOKSHELVES ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCK. I took them off the wall to paint and I was about ready to cry. It was like "I LOVE MY BOOKSHELVES THEY BELONG ON THE WALL COVERED IN BOOKS." You can kinda see the white dresser in the photos, right? Well, I filled ALL OF THOSE DRAWERS WITH BOOKS. yyyyyyyyeah. :P

      aww, thank you Micaiah!! I love how it's super bright on same days and dark and cozy at bedtime. <3
