Bedroom Makeover: New Bedspread


Has your bedroom not been touched since you moved in?  Still have the same bedspread? When we moved into our house around five years ago, we bought a brown/sea green down comforter to match our existing decor.  A friend picked it up for me on the day after Thanksgiving so I got it for $30 I think.  Previously we had an identical down comforter except it was white and had already gotten stained from various things including tree sap from our Christmas tree.

Anyway, when my birthday money began burning a hole in my pocket because I didn’t what I should do with it, I decided the sea green comforter had to go.  It looked nice, but it just wasn’t speaking our language as a couple.  We’re much more “hip” then our bedroom was showing us to be.  Thus, a transformation has begun in our bedroom.

I found the bedspread at Wal-Mart and fell in love with it.  I wanted to keep the wall color because I love the leather look of the wall treatment.  The colors are similar, but different enough that we eventually need to change our entire bedroom decor.  This will be a long drawn out process I’m sure.

So, enough of the blabbing, here’s the first step in our bedroom makeover: a new bedspread.

    Love this! Our bdrm is grn/brn–you have the perfect bed to transform by weaving strips of fabric thru the headboard. I almost did this, but our bed wouldn’t work for it(I was going to use ultrasuede strips)–give it some thought, I think it’d be a good fit.

      Love that idea but we had something a little different in mind. We are leaning towards a padded fabric headboard with a wide wooden frame. I will keep this idea in mind for a backup though.
