Cottage Bedroom Peek

Finally all the green paint is up on the walls in here. Cottage style bedroom was the plan for this room. Only took a week. I am now working on the trim. Just new fresh white paint. This bedroom is small but we are so much happier in our cozy private spot at the back of the house. We gave our two oldest girls our room that was larger with a sitting area but it was right next to the front door which we hated. Teens coming and going all the time was not ideal. This way they have a place in their room for video games and watching TV separate from their sleeping area. Anyhoo on to my room.

The picture above the bed is from our first house when we first got married 22 years ago. Brought it out to use in here. We are going to hang lots of vintage plates on the walls.


We chose a vintage green color. It comes across a little blue in the pics. I love it. Spruce Green by Benjamin Moore. Of course I need to change some of the bedding as it CLASHES. We have a lot of projects going on right now so I need to do the bedding changes on a budget.


This lamp I picked up already painted red at the thrift store. Found a shade I like the shape of but would love to cover in fabric.



I love the way the green makes my white shutters pop. 



Isn't this little light switch dressed in beadboard cute? Lowes. I am getting these for the kitchen for sure.



Vintage plates waiting to be hung in the room.

  4. Can't wait to see your finished bedroom. Thanks for showing us the beadboard switch plates. I didn't know they had those. I definitely want some of those for my kitchen where I already have some beadboard. Oh, and I could use some in my bathroom, too. I'm excited. Can you tell?

  7. Beautiful color! We opted for the smaller bedroom in our house when the boys were small...they used the room so much more than we did...I like a cozy bedroom myself! The plates are so pretty!

  16. Your bedroom is very pretty! It takes me along time to decorate a room and it goes through many changes along the way. I love the green color you chose, very relaxing. I am sure the rest of the room will come together once you find what you love. Your plates are a wonderful start!
    Blessings My Friend,
