My Bedroom // Before and After

I recently shared my home tour on The Everygirl, and already shared the before and after of my living room, as I did with my last apartment. And now–on to the bedroom. I first painted this room “mint” aka baby nursery green. Life lesson: do not paint a whole room without painting a little swatch on your wall! You can see the rest of my home tour on The Everygirl.

before I had real grown up nightstands and lamps

white ikea dresser. necklaces hanging on my pinboard (that didn’t last). mom’s vintage chanel.

before the gallery wall went up. sad and empty little space. 

I wish I could say that I measured where every frame went and that I didn’t have a million extra holes in the wall that I patched with wall putty and a kitchen spatula (always save some paint for touch ups!) but that would be a lie. I made such a mess out of this gallery wall, but love how it turned out.
