My repurposed bowl into vessel sink

For our anniversary my husband was going to make me a vessel sink.  I just had to find the bowl I wanted to use.  That took me two months because I am too cheap to pay two hundred for a metal bowl when I always see cool ones at Goodwill or Salvation Army stores (until I am actually looking for one).  This pic is my before, not pretty the sink is plastic and had melted spots on it and the faucet was nasty.  Excuse my mess please :)

I finally found a hammered metal bowl at a thrift store for .95 cents I was thrilled.  My hubby built me a butcher block top and stained it in a dark walnut and added the bowl and new faucet.  I am not sure wether I will paint the vanity bottom or not yet.  If you have an idea let me know. :)

What a wonderful husband I have !!

A Corner of the room

This is a corner of my bedroom.  I am trying to do the rustic with the elegant mix.  I used an old door I had stored in our shed and added chicken wire to it and used some little clothespins to hang some old lace and old pics I had and other little things.  I hung an old lace scarf I had found at the Salvation Army store.  I found an old mirror at Goodwill and spray painted it the same metallic color as the stenciled wall.  I then took a large jar and filled it with some of my lace and then added a bouquet of silk flowers.  (Note to self when you take a pic of a mirror it will show you in your pjs :))

My Bedroom Reveal

This is one photo of the bedroom redo.  You can see how the stenciled wall has a sheen to it.  I need to take some more pics of different angles.  But I just wanted to let you know that it is almost finished :)  I like how it all turned out.  At first I was fretting it :).

I will post more pics later of the different decor I used.   I tried to put some rustic in with the elegance to sort of balance it out  (and to help the hubby feel better).  I actually am very lucky in that area he lets me decorate any way I want to as long a s I am happy he says :).

DIY Material Shade

Here is another part of my bedroom redo.  I bought a cheap vinyl pull down shade and measured my fabric I used about a yard.  Put it up to my shade to determine where to cut the shade at.  I then cut the shade and just hot glued (love my glue gun :)) my fabric onto the last inch of the shade, and then took the stick that is supposed to weigh the shade down on the bottom of the material and doubled it over the stick and hot glued it again.

I really like all the greys and creams together.

DIY Sheet Music Wreath

As I mentioned before I have been redoing our bedroom, trying for a more elegant romantic feel.  I stenciled the walls in a metallic paint  and then I wanted something a little more rustic to add to all the glam of the wall.  I found this wreath idea on Pinterest.   I love how it turned out and it added just the right touch to the wall to sort of tone it down.  This is right above our headboard and it literally took my hubby just two weeks to look up and say "did you add something different to the wall?"   He did say he liked it! LOL
