Before and After: Bedroom

Remember way back when I mentioned we were redecorating the bedroom I grew up in? Well, be prepared to be amazed.
 Love the colors hu? Don't judge too much because I painted it all by myself in middle school. They call it self expression right? Thank goodness my parents are cool and didn't reassess the value of our home.
See the dolls on the shelf? Oh yeah. Needless to say, it's been years since I've gone through things. 

The dresser is the same one from the old bedroom. My wonderful sister sanded it down and gave it a nice fresh coat of black paint. The same was done for the book shelf. The brown one that once held my old dolls and prom sashes, now hold books and beautiful accents. Some of the decorations are actually left over centerpieces from our wedding and artwork I've made. The key to giving any room personality is by adding that personal touch.
Believe it or not, but that headboard is actually my old tack board! Talk about a face lift. It was simply wrapped in fabric we had lying in our craft cupboard (one of the many reasons why I love going home... endless supplies of crafts lying around the house) and stapled on the back to hold it in place.

I had to throw this one in for good measure. My sister and my mom are two of the most important women in my life. Love you ladies!
