|Beachy Bedroom Decor|
Well, it is almost done. I'm posting the pictures of the basement bedroom today. I just about have all the decor done. We still want to change it from a windowed room to a patio glass door room, so we can easily get in and out to go to the jacuzzi in the winter. As it is, it's absolutely NO FUN walking down around the backyard hill in the FREAKING COLD SNOW! (I actually thought about climbing through the window.....maybe I could get a ladder and ......uh...well....I'll think about that one.)
|We took out the mini blinds and the light fixtures and bought fresh new ones.....after painting everything ice blue.....|
|We ripped up the old, beige carpet, and put in new wood flooring....I didn't take very many pics of it though......Oops!|
|Here is the work of my crazy plumber neighbor down the street! But at least he found the leak! Yucky! |
My hubs did a great patch job.....see if you can find it in the "after" pictures?
|Finished "Mariner" themed room.....|
|Lots of Beach blue and white and shell and lighthouse decor......|
|Beach themed rooms are so easy because decorations are everywhere with the white and blue color scheme!|
|The blue and white "Star" quilt I purchased at a quilt shop.....|
|We repainted all the baseboards in the room too. It looks really nice in there now.|
|My hubs did this wood flooring. It is a vast improvement on the carpeting we had .|
(my hubs is quite the handyman stud!), we painted one wall a darker marine blue, and the other 3 walls and closet a pale ice blue.
|Here's the bookcase and the dark blue wall decor......I found lots of lighthouses......So pretty!|
|I made this magnet board and my idea is to collect postcards from all the beaches I travel to.......|
and attach them with these shell magnets I made with shells glued to circle magnets with hot glue.
|I know this is a dumb picture in here....I gotta find something that fits.....But I love this sailboat frame.....|
|We got this light up dolphin night light to add some blue ambiance to the room at night....|
|One of my kids got this giant stuffed fish at a carnival I think....but it works in the room !|
|Lighthouse and sailboat tapestry.....I sent away for this too, from a catalog....It's pretty in person....|
|I made a silk flower arrangement in blue and white in a "shell" designed, ceramic planter container.|
|I loved the lighthouse collection on these plates....can't remember where I found them....but it looks good on a skinny wall to the side of the bed....|
|I got this "Beach House" frame at Bed, Bath and Beyond....I always find stuff there....|
|This is a Martha Stewart summer chair I got at Kmart for $45.00. I love how wicker really goes well with a beach theme.....|
|My super tiny, lighthouse tea set that is maybe useful for Tinkerbell! Way tiny that thing......I succumbed to some fancy advertising....I hate when that happens.|
|Here's the table and chair and the new, white, faux wood mini blind....notice the light blue paint? So pretty!|
The lamp I found at Pier 1 Imports for....get this.....ten bucks! Yeah! I love a deal! I called all over to the surrounding cities at all the Pier 1 stores to find a match....but they were all gone. It is really beautiful up close. The top has a sand dollar finial on it. It's really pretty.
|I loved this beachy tray I found at Micheals....|
|A set of shell pictures from T. J. Maxx my favorite store!!!|
|Wall collage of beachy pictures....and a tiny, old crate I painted white and added shells and candles....|
|Just outside the window is the backyard patio and a jacuzzi.....our next project is to push out this window and make it|
a glass doorway so we can get to our jacuzzi when it snows.....without freezing our little xxxx's off!
|Cute little nautical box I found at T.J. Maxx|
|My magnet board....I have 1 post card so far....Salt Lake...all my postcards will be from trips...that's the goal....|
|Lighthouse decor is popular now too....I found lots of lighthouse pictures at |
Bed, Bath and Beyond....and used a 20% off coupon too!
|The Beachy Bedroom decor is a great guest room too!|
