Ok, so I found this amazing tutorial on how to put wainscoting up. And I just knew I had to try it in my bedroom. You see, my husband doesn't like things hanging over his head and I just couldn't ever find a headboard that I liked, so instead of buying one, we decided to just put up wainscoting and use that as a headboard instead. Plus our room is super small (like 11'x10') and a headboard would just make it smaller.

We've lived in this house for 2 years and we finally got around to painting our bedroom. I've hated it since we've moved in. The paint was this nasty peachy creamy color, but the worst part....the previous owners had painted it with flat paint and then touched it up with glossy paint every where. So whenever I looked at the walls I could see the different finished. Lame, super lame.

(and this is the after)
We were originally going to paint it greenish-blue and brown, but the brown I got, looked a little different then I had hoped, so we went back to the store and got the color, Zinc from the Martha Stewart line at Home Depot. Doesn't it look like 20x's better than it did before? I still have some more things I'd like to do, like pictures on the walls, a tall painted bookshelf and pillows for the bed, but I just had to post it! We're not quite sure about the curtains either. Do tall curtains make a small bedroom look bigger or smaller? Anyone know that answer. Have any other thoughts on what you'd do to make this bedroom POP even more? I'd love to hear your ideas!
Oh, and if you're wondering.... Bed Spread and Curtains are both Dwell Studio for Target. The curtains are actually a table cloth...
Lamp shades are also from Target. Mirror, antique....it was Chris' grandma's mirror. I love it!
