Ages ago I decided to give my bedroom a Junk Gypsy redo.
Well, it has FINALLY gotten underway!
Ok, so the room is just painted so far, but that's a start.

You can get a little back story on what my over all 
plan is for the room here and here.

Here's a sneak peek...

I was a bad blogger and didn't take any 
specific before pictures of my room.  
The only thing I could do is go through old pictures 
on my phone to try and find some.  
These are the only two I could find.
The walls were a boring shade of cream.
If you know me at all, you know I don't do cream colored walls.
So, I took my inspiration fabric to the paint store...
...and matched the paint to the lighter aqua.
Then the paint sat on the shelf for a long long long long time.
It sat for so long I forgot what color I'd chosen.
I was worried I'd picked the darker color in a crazy moment.
But I didn't!!

Being ever the helpful assistant, Luna took up perch on the controversial green chair.
Such a great little helper.

It seemed to take forever, but I couldn't be happier with the results.

Next, I plan on jazzing up that plain ol' down comforter, painting my hutch, painting a quote on the wall, and quite a few other tricks up my sleeve to give it the appropriate Junk Gypsy treatment.  
Baby steps, right?

This project was shared on some of these lovely blogs.

  1. OH NO...YUCK on Taylor Swift...YA on the room!! Looks super great!


  2. I love that color!
    And I used to love Taylor.....then I saw this years grammy's. Yucko.

  3. Love the color! I listened to Taylor for a while too, then you said you didn't like her. It got me thinking and I was like, "Damn, I don't think I like her either!" Thanks for opening my eyes:)

  4. I love that chair! And the vanity set up. Great colors.

  5. My room is the exact same color as yours and I have that same makeup station, but mine is in dark cherry wood. Did you paint yours red? I thought about painting mine but wasn't sure how it would turn out.

    I love anything gypsy style, I have slowly been converting my office

  6. Great color choice! I'm following you via GFC. I host Fluster Creative Muster Party on Wednesdays and I would love it if you would come by and party with us. Hope to see you there!

    Hugs, Smiles, and Blessings,
