Look A Likes: Rockers

I know many of us that love this contemporary chair.  This classic chair, originally from Eames, has been making it's appearance everywhere.  Most people go with replicas since they are much cheaper than the authentic Eames.  Though I would love an original, my budget can't handle the price tag.  There are many versions out there that are more affordable.

Overstock Vinnie Small Cradle Chair

You can also check Amazon for great prices as well.

Friday Five

Happy Friday!

This week I wanted to share some things that have caught my eye around blogland.

1) If you're looking for cheap wall art while making a big impact, try this tutorial.  I love the bold graphic print.


2) Megan posted on changing your blog from Blogger to Wordpress.  I found this interesting.  I've been wanting to switch mine over but I know there are so many challenges with doing so.  Her step by step makes it seem to easy.


3) You know I love me some blue.  Erin over at House of Turquoise made over her patio and it's beautiful.  I love the mix of blues and greens and the view from the deck is breath taking!

4) Seems like every project Dana puts her hands to, it turns out great.  She and her husband built a waste bin enclosure.  No more looking at that plastic thing of an eyesore on the side of the house.


5) Since summer is in full swing, there are many of us that will host outdoor shindigs.  I always have trouble finding outdoor coolers for holding drinks.  I came across this tutorial.  She spray painted plastic bins from the dollar store so they look more industrial.

Here's to a relaxing weekend.  We have a few more weeks to enjoy before school starts back next month.  Where did the summer go?

Master Bedroom Source List

Thanks for the kind comments about our bedroom makeover.  I was glad to finally show you guys the finished room.  A lot of things in the room are new, with the exception of the bed and dresser.  We pretty much started with a blank slate.  I've tried to list everything I used in the room.  If you see something I didn't post a source for, let me know.

The mirror above the bed was a good find for me.  I refuse to spend hundreds of dollars on one.  I love the antique gold color and it looks nicely against the gray wall.

Mirror: Target

To me the biggest dramatic difference is the gray accent wall and white pintuck bedding.  I saw a picture of a gray accent wall in my newsfeed one day and couldn't get it out of my head.  Initially I wanted to find an upholstered headboard but I never found one I truly loved and hubby wasn't ready to change it out.  I still love that our dark headboard contrasts with the mid-gray color.  The color is Behr Grayve Yard.  We still had the builder light in our room so that was one of the first things to go.  I searched online for affordable options and came out with this drum chandelier.  It takes two light bulbs so it gives off plenty of light and looks elegant too.

Bedding: Walmart
Chandelier: Target
Throw: Target, no longer available

Pillows: DIY here and here

Fabric Trimmed Curtains: DIY
Nightstand: Target

Frame: Ross

We both wanted a full length mirror.  It was originally going to go in the sitting area but it didn't look right.  Instead of returning it, which hubby talked me out of, it fit perfectly in this corner.  I think the kids use it more than we do.  I'm constantly cleaning fingerprints off of it.
Floor mirror: Ikea

Vases: Ikea

I went through several benches before I decided on this one.  They were either not the right color, weight limit was light (150 pounds, really?), or it just didn't look right.  I even hesitated on this one because I thought it was too dark but it ended up contrasting with the white bedding.  Or it could have been I was tired of looking too.

Nailhead Bench: Target

Now for the sitting area. 

Desk: Ikea top and legs
Desk lamp: Ikea
Cross: Hobby Lobby

I really wanted to add some storage to this area.  I still had files and tons of paper that I needed to keep but conceal.  There are pretty things on the top shelves, but my papers are stored on the bottom shelf in the magazine files.

Shelf: Ikea

Plant pot: Ikea

Frame: Ross
Blue Hurricane: Target
Decorative sticks: Ikea

I think I got everything.  I didn't realize how much stuff was actually bought to makeover this space.  Don't worry hubby, I didn't spend that much!
