Major Updates to the Cotton Room

I am so excited about how this room has come together! It feels so cozy!!
Here is the before:

And here we are now!!

Since the last picture, I found a new duvet cover (at my new favorite Target clearance store for $10!!), I added the chair which I loveee and found at a thrift store for $12, the blanket, the mirror which was another $8 thrift store find, and the SHUTTER HEADBOARD! I am most excited about that! I got all four old shutter doors at a thrift store for $15..thanks to my friend Lindsay who talked them down for me :) My favorite blog writer, Layla Plamer of The Lettered Cottage wrote an article for HGTV on making a headboard out of shutter doors...if you are interested in seeing how I did it, check it out HERE!

The mirror I painted with white paint...it was a goldy color before.

You can't tell very well in this picture, but I found the curtains at my Target clearance store for $3 each! They are long white linen curtains and look really great in the room! I also found the bedskirt for $5 at the same store :)

The last few things I want to change are still the light fixture, and I plan on doing some letters above the headboard, similar to what Layla did in hers. Overall, I am so excited about how this room is coming along!!

Looks great, Mel! I LOVE that brown throw blanket- I had the red one but had to put it away after Christmas...Where did you find the brown one? And where is this Target clearance store?! So many questions!

I made a new blog just for my home decor...I'd love for you to check it out!

Also, let me know when you're in Charlotte again so we can go thrifting together! I found an AMAZING antique mall!
