Bedroom Makeover – Pottery Barn Inspired

Pottery Barn Inspired – Bedroom Makeover

My bedroom makeover began with this issue of Pottery Barn

I knew I had a sheer swag

there was one time in my life when several of my windows had their swag on.  

Sometimes I’m glad that I keep stuff, like swag.

I placed a basket on top of an ottoman, layered a wooden tray, with a few old books at the end of the bed and added a corbel.  I wanted to recreate a natural look like the one in the photo using things from around the house.

I took photos from different angles, turned the lights off and opened the blinds trying to get the lighting just right.

I guess it took me a little too long.

Miss Murphy was ready for a nap.

And that’s how the

Murphy Bed

edition evolved.

I’m sharing my bedroom makeover at Debbiedoo’s Magazine Copycat Party

I hope you join us this week for the rest of Spring’tacular!

    Debbie!! You are amazing! I absolutely love your incredible copycat and frankly like it a million times more than the original…it may be due to Miss Murphy joining in but no matter what it looks gorgeous! :-)

    OMGee. I so snort-laughed when Murphy hopped up on the bed! Classic.
    Again, you knock my socks off lady. You are so dang talented your room surpasses PB.
    What a dreamy space to lay your head at night.
    Mr. Fresh sure is lucky to have you around to make things perfect 😉

    PS-And Murphy too, to get to snooze on that beauty!!

    Murphy is so cute! Who can blame her for wanting to take a nap on such a gorgeous bed? I saw that bed in PB and thought it was so pretty. Yours is every bit as lovely! I am now a new follower.

    This post is just so darn cute from the photos to the clever writing. I love how you added text to your photos to make them look SO MUCH like the Pottery Barn catalog photo. Your dog is adorable too and love how you edited the photo text to adapt to him being in the picture.

  14. says

    This is awesome! You did such an amazing job! I love your dog too, is that a goldendoodle or labradoodle? I have a goldendoodle, just love these dogs, they make great additions to a photoshoot! Super job!

    A+++++++ … you did an incredible job, Debbie, recreating that gorgeous bedroom from PB! I love the swag and how you added the fun vignette at the base! Your monogram looks awesome, too … might have to borrow that idea somewhere. :)
