I didn’t want anything too elaborate, and I didn’t want any pattern or colour that would clash with the wall. I soon found that white shades didn’t work because I couldn’t match the white to the white on the wall. So we went with black because our furniture is black, and I was surprised at how well they work!
I was worried they would be too harsh, but they aren’t.
And I was concerned the black shade would not throw enough light, but that’s not the case!
These lamps were a true find!
I was in our local goodwill scouring the aisles for some hidden gem to spray paint, then these appeared!
There were 2 lamp bases, they were dusty but looked brand new! Not a scratch on them!
At $8 a piece I grabbed them!
Once I got them home all they needed was a good dusting and some new shades, which we found at Home Depot.
Our lamp repurpose for 2 lamps cost us less than $50. Score!
I love them!
The bedding was a challenge too. Possibly the hardest part of putting this room together.
Again, I had to be careful of the colour, and I didn’t want any pattern at all!
So when the hubby went to Las Vegas, I sent him on a mission to pick up this simple white duvet from Target. I wasn’t sure if it would work, but I was willing to try it out!
Love, love, love this duvet set!
Ooops! Probably should have ironed the duvet. Who has time or even wants to do that?! Not me.
Well, so far I love it. It’s starting to feel like a grown-up room!
It’s about time since we’ve been married for over 12 years!
Soooo, what colour do you think I should accent with?
Is your Master Bedroom done? Or is it a work in progress?
