Finally Let the Makeover Begin....

Do you have unfinished projects?

My bedroom makeover is one of them. 

One year ago I purchased paint samples and that's as far as I got.  My 50th birthday just recently past and my mother in law gave me a gift of money.  She insisted I use it on something I wanted. 

 Ooooh, I knew exactly what I wanted. 
Yhippie...  The UPS driver has arrived with my gift,
so let the decorating begin.......

My "dream" room would have a chandelier, not a ceiling fan. Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch has the perfect chandelier in her master bedroom.

  Let's take a peek...

Isn't it  beautiful?  You can read about all about it HERE.

 My husband has very few requests
when I decorate. He lets me do as I wish.
But a ceiling fan in the master bedroom is a must for him.

So when I saw this beauty HERE in the Horchow catalog
I was sooooo excited.
But there was a problem...the price.
Oh, how I hate when that happens.

 What's a girl to do when you're on a budget?
Ebay....That's the answer.
  I found it for less than half the price!
Now my non-demanding husband can have the ceiling fan
and I still got a light fixture that had crystals!

Isn't it a beauty?

I couldn't wait to get it put together.....

Let me share with you my inspiration room
 which I first saw on Rate My Space.

I even have the same four poster bed as in my inspiration room.
I just love the colors of the room.  They are so soft and soothing. These colors are nothing like the rest of my home,  
which have warm tones throughout.

Now I had to select a color.  That's the hard part as you can see in the photo below.  I painted several different colors.  Some had to much green or blue.  I finally choose the one with the blue X.
Sherwin Williams, Herbal Escape....

Do you have a hiding spot in your bedroom?

You know, where you stash that one of a kind bargain.
I'll share my hiding place with you...

You may have the same spot. 
 That's right, under the bed.

 Over the past year, when I have seen something on clearance I snatched it up and hid it under the bed.
 I have actually forgotten what I have hiding under there.

Here's the fabrics for the draperies and dust ruffle.
It's been propped up in the corner of the bedroom
about as long as I have had the paint samples on the wall.
I found the toile fabric at Calico Fabrics. 
 It's the same fabric as my inspiration room

Isn't it just lovely.

Here's the fabric for the dust ruffle.

Bye... Bye... old ceiling fan.

We painted the ceiling Sherwin Williams cream fleece.

The walls were painted  with the Sherwin Williams Herbal Escape. 
It isn't as dark as I thought it would be. 
I like the color, but it's going to take some getting used to.

The trim has been painted and now the ceiling molding and my beautiful ceiling fan/chandelier will be going up. 

Stop back I'll be posting as soon as my hubby hangs it up this week!
Now I need to start sewing the window treatments and bed skirt.
I can't wait to share it with you.
I'll be linking up to....

I know your makeover is going to be fantastic. I love that fan/chandi!!! Can't wait to see what else you do.

Susan (Between Naps On The Porch.net) said...

I love the fabrics you've chosen...the colors are sooo soothing and wonderful! The toile is beyond gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you have planned for it. I love that pic with all the goodies stashed under the bed. It's going to be like Christmas when you start pulling them all out. :)
Beautiful ceiling fan...and I love it with the crystals. Those lighting manufacturers are starting to figure us out. They know the men want fans and we want some bling. :) It's gorgeous! Your room is going to be stunning. Please let me know when you post about it, if you think about it. I can't wait to see it all done!

Madam Butterfly said...

Good luck to you! I love Calico fabrics. I like your choices! The toile is my favorite.

Johnna said...

Looks like it is coming together beautifully!

Sueann said...

Wow Sherry! I love the color you chose! And that ceiling fan is so awesome! What a nice blend...fan and chandelier!! Wowzers!!
The material you have is wonderful too. Your room is going to be amazing!!
Can't wait to see it all put together!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

What a great inspiration room Sherry! I love the color, but then again my master is similar ~ a blue gray color {Sherwin Williams' Martha Stewart Milk Pail}. I love your fabric choices and can't wait to see your finished pieces. Can't wait to see the fan in place. I think I'm going to go that type of fan route when we down-size.

Traci said...

I can't wait to see the finished product! I LOVE the plaid fabric! I only wish I could sew. I can barely thread a needle. My hubby is the same way, do what I want but he needs his fan.

Tony said...

that has got to be the most GORGEOUS ceiling fan I have ever seen!!


Melissa said...

I bet you are going to fabulous when it is all done.

Lori@Paisley Passions said...

Your room is going to be beautiful! I didn't even know they made ceiling fans that elegant. I'm in the middle of redecorating our master bedroom too. My first step was to get rid of clutter then extra pieces of furniture. Our room already looks so much bigger! I'm the one in our home that loves ceiling fans. We have them in almost every room. But you've given me a wonderful idea now. :)

Jennifer said...

wow...I love it! I can't wait to see how everything turns out. And I love the ceiling fan with the crystals. I've never seen one like that...what a great compromise!
I'm getting ready to tackle a master bedroom makeover at my house so I've enjoyed seeing your post.
Stopping by from It's So Very Cheri...can't wait to see more!

Traci said...

I love what you have chosen already, the fabrics are stunning! And that ceiling fan - Can I say Oh My!!I can't wait to see it all come together! I am now a follower!

Thepearsonfamilee said...

I love your colors. It is so beautiful. If my bedroom looked like that, I'm not sure I would want to get up! Will be fun to see the finished product!

My Hubs also must have a ceiling fan in the bedroom. I hate the wind blowing all night.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Your room is going to be just beautiful! Love the fan/chandelier! Those are hard to find and do cost a lot when you find them. I really like the fabric. It is close to the inspiration fabric I am going to use in my master bathroom. Can't wait to see it when it is done!

Alison Agnew said...

It's looking lovely! I'm following from the DIC blog hop (just so I can see what the finished room looks like!)

Have a great weekend.

I LOVE that light! I must find one like it for my room...I want a chandy in there but not sure if my husband can give up the fan. This is the most beautiful one I have seen. Thanks for sharing:)

Holy divine design. It looks so cozy. JEALOUS. You would die if you saw my bedroom right now.

I love the fabrics and paint colors. I can't wait to see the finished room. Thank you for sharing!

KimMalk said...

That's going to look wonderful, I can't wait to see the toile (I have a pillow in that fabric) and the pretty ceiling fan.

Deborah@Green Willow Pond said...

I am in love with that fan! Can't wait to see it up and the room finished.

Olivia said...

Oh my gosh, a chandelier fan!? I have to find one! I'm a Texan so fans are a must, but chandies are so gorgeous!

Pam Kessler said...

Thanks for showing that ceiling fan/chandelier. We have a ceiling fan in our bedroom, but it's a necessity here, so that would be a great option for me.

Heather McCurley said...

I've had my eye on that same fan for at least 3 years now. I'm just going to have to break down and buy it!!!

Looks like the start to a beautiful room.

gena said...

Oooooh, this is going to look just gorgeous ! I love the fabric - stunning ! I have a chandelier ceiling fan in my foyer, complete with crystals. Yours is going to make the room !!!!

thanks for sharing,

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

I love your ceiling and your choice of colors. I was looking at that ceiling fan for quite awhile. You are right...too pricey at Horchow. I would prefer a chandelier as well, but our ceiling fan keeps me cool. Those darn hot flashes. I am looking forward to seeing the final results....Linda

Tiffany said...

I am sure I have your OLD ceiling fan in my bedroom!!!~seriously!
...and I'm really sure I WANT your new one!! :) LOVE IT!
