Matchstick Art

Yesterday I was lucky enough to stumble upon Treasures and Travels blog. How am I just finding this?! These girls are so creative and everything that I saw put my in awe. So, obviously, I had to try one of their DIY’s for myself.

Mine looks nowhere near as cool as theirs does, but hey, it’s still cool enough to hang in my bedroom. The one thing I couldn’t figure out is how to not have as many white spaces.. that drove me nuts since I am a perfectionist but sometimes you just have to step away and enjoy the beautiful thing you just made. Thank you Treasures and Travels for this great DIY! Instructions here.

Bedroom Designs

 

We are officially back from vacation! With that being said, I am now full throttle into finishing my room before school starts. I’m crossing my fingers it will happen but honestly, its highly unlikely everything will come together by then. Anyways, here are the plans…

 

Gold lamp// Frames// Mirror// Coral Pillow// Ikea Shelf// Spotted Pillow
 
I have a fairly large room so it is split up in two different spaces. I have one space that is a sitting and desk area and one that is where my dresser and bed go. My walls are a gray color so for accent colors I am going to use white, black, and coral.

Alright, so this is the “seating area”. My plan for this is to do a design of some sort on the wall with the window and hang ceiling to floor curtains. On the wall by my desk I want to get the Ikea shelf’s (number 5 in picture) and spray paint them gold. Those would be on both sides of my desk and in the center of my desk I want to hang something that allows me to hang pictures that are not in picture frames. I am planning on reupholstering the chair in a black and white striped patterned instead of chevron. The color pop in here would be in the styling of the shelf’s.
 
Here is the other side of the sitting room. Please excuse the dirty floor on the ground (so embarrassing.) On the wall above the couch I want to do a huge gallery wall. I eventually want more pillows for the couch but it isn’t a necessity yet.

 This is the part where my bed is (duh.). Ideally, I would want new furniture all together but that is not in the budget and I leave for college in two years so I am dealing with what I have. Also, I’m not allowed to paint it which was another option I was thinking to brighten this side up a little more. So, with that said, I wanted something more dramatic back here that will take your focus off of the bed and more onto the wall. I decided a great plan would be to do board and batten because it not only makes a design statement but also brightens this area up. I also want to get white bedding and get a lot of decorative pillows (4 and 6 in above picture). The lamp is going to be a gold base with a white shade (1 in above picture). What I don’t have pictures of is the wall where my dresser is. On this wall I am planning on having a big floor mirror (3 on above picture) and hanging four white frames above my dresser (5 in above picture).
