bedroom decor

I will, sadly, admit that our bedroom is the last to get decorated. I think we had maybe one thing on the wall in our place in Gunnison. We had a window above our bed there, so we never had to get creative with a headboard or decoration. 

Way back in 2010...last January to be exact...I did some repurposing to an old vintage cupboard we had. I took one of the doors (while chase made the remainder into a bookshelf) and made it into a chalkboard for my studio. You can see the whole project here. 

This was the result.

Because I made the large embroidery hoop for the guest bedroom and there was not a lot of wall space for this guy in my new studio...I decided to put it above our bed. 

I wrote Song of Solomon 6:3 on it ((it was on our paper goods for the wedding)) and I think it looks great! Can you tell I love decorative pillows? ;)

Bonus: it matches the side tables that Chase made!

What repurposing/redecorating have you done lately?

ps have you seen this?!?!

 I'm totally getting it for craft shows & such for oh, sweet joy! Brilliant. BRILLIANT! I love my iphone. 



  1. I LOVE that chalkboard!

    Our living room and dining room look super cute, but our bedroom is still sad. We ran out of decorating budget and now I really wish we could spruce it up.

  2. I used Square at Renegade Holiday in Chicago this past winter. LOVE IT! Plus, all your customers think you're snazzy when you ask them to use their finger to sign their names! :)

  3. I love that idea. We've never decorated our bedroom, because we've been planning to move out of state. I think I'll remember this idea though!

  4. My future phone is my favorite thing, too! And the chalkboard above your bed is just dreamy!

  5. that chalkboard is great! and how handy is the square - I'm going to have to look into that ASAP.

  6. Love the bedroom! I love how the green is in the chalkboard and the side tables! I'm going to be doing some (my first) DIY projects this spring! I might have to check out that chalkboard project!

  7. Love that color of green! and the rest of your blog for that matter! glad to have found you. Oh and we're kinda neighbors- i'm from greeley :)

  8. Hey I just ordered a Square for my phone today!!! I'm in two craft fairs and I almost signed up with Propal (which has an annual fee) but then I was directed to The Square. So happy I found it!

  9. so does the square work with the new iphone 4 because I know they had one for the old iphone but not one yet for the new one? that will be exciting if it is!

  10. Yes I have seen the square reader, because I have one. It's wonderful. :)

    Love your new room decor. :)

  11. We both posted about things above our beds today. Weird.

  12. ok first of all, awesome job on that chalkboard, it looks great. i still need something to put above our bed. i LOVE that you wrote that song of solomon verse on there. so perfect.

    and i so wish i had an iphone!! i didn't know about that gadget until i did my first craft fair in december and a TON of people had it!! so nifty!

  13. love the chalkboard!!!

    and nope, haven't seen that credit card swiper. impressive. sad, i dont have an iphone.

  14. my bedroom is pretty sad and we've lived in our place for almost 2 years now! love all the green. gives me inspiration to make something of my boring room! ;)

  15. i LOVE the chalkboard and all the fun pillows!! i've seen ppl use that for craft shows before, it's soo cool! i think it can email the buyers a receipt too!!

  16. Aww I love the chalkboards! They're such a good idea and I love how they go with the colors in your room!

    That app is SO amazing!

  17. hiya friend! i know this isn't today's post but i just stopped by to tell you happy valentine's day! i hope its wonderful!
