Bedroom Sneak Peek

Our bedroom is coming together nicely.
A little slower than planned, but October was a CRAZY month for us!
We were BUSY, BUSY & I'm soooo happy November is here:)
Here is a little sneak peek of our progress & I will do some BEFORE & AFTERS with the Final Reveal, whenever that may be.

 Our "ledge" above our bed, inspired by Lettered Cottage.
I'm still playing around with what I'm putting on the ledge, but I threw some things up there that I had around the house for now & the LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED boards I made a few weeks ago.

I LOVE these baskets I picked up at Burlington Coat Factory for $5! 
I'm not sure where they will end up, but for now they are sitting on my husband's dresser...awaiting his wallet, keys & other crap,
I mean, pocket contents at the end of each day.
I still have to find several mismatched pillows for my bed. I want greys, whites & maybe a light blue. 
I have found several I love, like THESE...but the price tag is too much. I'm on the search for CHEAP, QUALITY pillows( I hope they exist!)
I did find this GREY one that I LOVE at Ross for $8.99, so it gives me hope!

Once I find some more PILLOWS,  LAMPS for our nighstands, and a BED SKIRT, it will be CLOSE to finished...

I have a CSN Gift Certificate that I need to spend & I'm thinking I want THESE lamps on my nightstands...
What do you think???

I'm SO HAPPY I went with BLUE on our WALLS & GREY for the FURNITURE. We have ZERO natural light in our bedroom. The previous owners, added on to the back of our house(which we love), BUT the ONLY window in our room, now backs the Armoire in our Playroom, creating NO daylight in our bedroom:( I think grey would have been too dark for our situation, but I love it on the dresser and nightstands.

The inspiration behind painting our WALLS BLUE & furniture GREY? The talented Erica with Tart-House Design. I must have found a million "inspiration" photos that incorporated GREYS & Erica's bedroom (pictured below) was the 1st one my husband really liked!
THANK YOU ERICA, for convincing my husband that GREY would work & for inspiring me to go with a light blue on my WALLS!

I love the lamp! it's all looking good - I think I like the "all you need is love" more now that they're on the ledge and in place!!

I love it! I can't wait to see everything. Not a color combo I would have thought of but I'm really liking it!

Love the woodwork and the lining of those baskets. Gray and yellow has always been one of my all time favorites. Pretty lamps as well!

Looks so pretty....I was laughing when you said it was taking longer than planned. Glad to know it isn't only me that happens to. :)

Take care,

Love the signs! I have those words *song* on a sign hanging on my fence post. I think the neighbors think I'm nuts, but who cares, I'm having fun!
