It is the retreat that I've always wanted it to be.
And it's been a labor of love. (May I just remind you that I have a 1 year old and a not quite 3 year old!)
Totally our style. Bits of us. Personalized for our needs. I love it.
Let's take a little tour through our new room, shall we?

That little dresser now catches my eye every time I walk by our bedroom which I love.
With all of my little trinkets and jewelry.
Then, you immediately look right, and you see our new retreat.
We've got the cute little grain sack bench at the foot of our bed (before and after seen here).
My white frenchy nightstand on the left hand side.

And of course, our "new" 4 poster bed that made me officially feel like a grown up.

And then my first go at using Miss Mustard Seed's Milkpaint in flow blue serves as the major color for our room.
|The before and after on this piece can be seen here.|
This room is so bright, and totally Ashley/Blake shabby chic, and I just love it.

Here's the quick progression:

Yes, I still would love curtains, a rug for the foot of the bed, and then of course, the board and battan.
But honestly, this was a HUGE project for me tackle and I'm thrilled every time Blake & I get to retreat to our room now - #staymarried ;)
