Happy Sunday Everyone. I’ve been crazy busy this weekend with my first ever Periscope broadcast yesterday. Woo hoo!!!! In case you missed it, I streamed live from my home office, and talked about my progress on the # 30 Day Flip Challenge, which is all about organization this month. I showed how I’ve organized a shelf in my home office for under $50.00 using items from the dollar store, thrift stores and by shopping my house. Be sure to check out my blog next Sunday for all the dets on that.
But for now, I want to show you how I decorated my master bedroom for Valentine’s Day. Can you say Bow Chicka Wah Wah??? 😉
I was recently inspired to do this little decorating project by Christina from the blog Christina’s Adventures when she posted a query about Valentine’s Day Bedroom decor. I started thinking to myself: Hmmmmm. Valentine’s Day Bedroom…. is that a thing?….. Hmmmmm….. I guess it’s a thing……Why not?…….. Hmmmmm….. I’m totally doing it!!!!!
I don’t typically use the colour red in any of my decor. I don’t have anything personally against “red”; it just never seems to be in harmony with other tones that I use more frequently. But, I really wanted to use my red lips pillow, so I made it work, and I actually REALLY like how it turned out, especially how the red contrasts with the pale blue walls.
I changed up my typical throw cushions for this project, and borrowed the big fuzzy pink one from my youngest daughter’s closet, two fuzzy grey ones from our den, and the other three were pulled out of my holiday closet, as I keep those around specifically for Valentine’s Day decor. I LOVE to shop my house for items to use, and love (even more) to spend as little money as possible.
One item I did buy were these chalkboard hearts from the dollar store. They set me back $1.50, and then I used my chalk pen to spell out the banner words and grey yarn to hang it in place.
One other item I purchased was a scarf for $3.00. What scarf, you ask? The wreath hanging above the bed was made using a knit scarf from the dollar store and some stick-on felt hearts. In my next post, I’ll show you all the steps I took to pull this simple and fun wreath all together.
Until next time my friends,
