The Blue Bedroom RedesignFeb 20, 2012
This huge bedroom used to be 2 small bedrooms. Since the furniture was so large, I decided to knock down the wall separating the 2 bedrooms. Doing that opened up the space tremendously. The wall that was knocked down contained the closets for both rooms. Because of that, I had to have a new closet framed up. There was a tight budget so I had to get carpet for the flooring…even though I HATE carpet! uuggghhhh Anyhoo, I chose a neutral carpet color because I wanted to go BOLD with the wall color. The paint color winner = Behr's "Regatta Bay". This is a deep blue and it really looks good. Yellow, white and silver accent this bossy blue and also brighten up the space even more. One of my fav's in the room are the semi-sheer window panels from JCPenny. Oh, btw, if you didn't know….JC Penny has a great selection of window panels / curtains in stock for very low prices and they also do special orders as well. I got these for $25/panel PLUS I had a coupon! When the time came around for me to start accessorizing, I was almost out of money. I had to really bargain hunt. I found some silver picture frames on clearance at Michael's for around $5/each. For artwork above the bed, I used those silver frames and I got some fabric that I found on clearance at JoAnn's and I used the fabric as art work. The space came together great!
