This room is slowly, and by slowly I mean very slowly, coming along. My daughter is learning patience. Hey it's a good life lesson to understand that we can't always just go and buy whatever we want. Some times we have to wait for things...what a concept! If you follow me on instagram you've seen this pic before. I found this cute gold accent table at Target for under $80.00 and thought it just looked amazing against the black wall. Then I decided that all that gorgeous Kate Spade framed paper would look amazing above it. I also found a cool metal hashtag and "at" sign at HomeSense and along with the "B" I made earlier, decided to make a collage above the accent table. I originally had a bookcase here but I thought the gold table looked so much better, so I moved the bookcase to the other side of the room. Then I wanted a light for above the bed, and was thinking about making one, but spotted this one at Ikea. The cord and shade combined total was under $20.00.
This is what the light looks like fully assembled. Pretty cool right? I love it against the black wall.
One other project I completed was fixing this old bulletin board. I decided to paint the inside black and add gold thumb takes to the edge. I then rubbed gold paint into the edges to just give it a bit more gold. Easy to do and the result was a big change. It actually is one of my favourite things in the room, and again, not expensive. You can see the process of this room here and here.
