Bedroom Decor, Part 1

Gosh, I've been having trouble keeping up with the blog.  I've been waiting to post my new bedroom decor until I'm finished, but it's taking longer than I want.  So I'm giving you a teaser today.  Slowly but surely, the walls are coming alive.  Here's my previous bedroom post, with mostly bare walls. And here's some furniture I repurposed.  And here's the rocking chair.

Now I'm working on the walls.

A painted sign again, but this time I added some string art.  I went for the ombré effect.  I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.

 And I made a bunch of pillows to add some color.

The afghan is one that I started to crochet many years ago and only finished two panels and part of the third.  I had totally forgotten about it but found it in a bag when we moved.  I stitched the two panels together, and it makes a nice throw.  The partial panel was used to make the pillow!

I did get one other thing hung on the wall.

This is a cross stitch design that I did also many years ago.  I think in 1988 (way before children.) It is a Norman Rockwell picture.  It was kind of stained and rolled up in a box.  I bought the frame, soaked it in Biz/Oxyclean/Dawn and it came out beautifully!

These are very tiny stitches! I can't believe I ever did this.

I still have plans for a few more bare walls and curtains to add, so there will be more Master Bedroom to come!
