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!
