Master Bedroom Reveal!

Finally my room is "done", though for us decorating crazies, done is a moving target it seems. ♥

Here is the before.  The room was painted, but I had no furniture in here yet and hadn't redone my nightstands yet.

I'm so happy with how my bedroom turned out.  I have been craving light after our long dark winter, and this room does not disappoint.  It has a feeling of peace and calm.  

Our little girl will be born in this room sometime in May, and it's finally ready to welcome her.

The master bath is through those french doors

I adore this chalkboard.  "I ♥ You" could be put in there too, among other sweet notes to my husband ♥

This "key" hook is so sweet (Joanne Fabrics - 60% off)

The necklace is an "amber teething necklace".  They work great for easing teething pain for babies.

Again, the darling little mary janes

The bedding is a combination of pieces I already had and some new stuff from Ebay.  I got the deep pocket robins eggs blue sheets for a great price on Ebay, as well as the Simply Shabby Chic quilt and sham set..  I've had the Simply Shabby Chic ruffled duvet cover and shams for years, but have always hated how the duvet fit inside it - This time I used it like a coverlet and it works SO much better.

The door to the right is a small walk in closet, which is due for a redo in the next 2 weeks or so

These drape holders are a set from Pottery Barn.  They were not cheap, but I had an in-store credit for just the right amount.  They make the room for me.  I didn't buy the fabric PB had to go with the set...I just happened to have a similar style fabric in my stash (10yds)
 I love the chippy-ness!

Our wedding photos are finally hung

I'm not a huge trinket or vignette type of a person (too much to dust!), but I have a small amount accessories

My husband and I when we first started dating (1998!)

The unity candelabra from our wedding

By the time I was halfway through taking these photos, little man had this all set up already.  
Just keeping it real!  Gotta move fast for decent pics around here.

Thanks for looking at my room tour, I hope you enjoyed it!
