Another little bedroom decor update {let’s pretend it is still summer}

Howdie folks!

Today we are back in my bedroom. With all the chaos going on inside and out, my bedroom truly has become my sanctuary of peace, quiet and beauty. 

And even a sanctuary needs some pretty corners, don’t you agree? So I have added a another bit of bedroom decor.

My mirror was showing me another empty corner and I decided that that needed to be rectified, pronto!

It was a fifteen minute project that has been giving me mucho joy ever since. I was busy in the basement working on my big project as I stumbled over a white painted board. It triggered an idea that I had to realize instantly of course (could that be the reason why all my big projects take me forever? Nuh, I am sure that isn’t it ;-) ).

Anyway I had this white board in my hand. It used to be part of my pallet wood summer mantel, and it was left over after the other boards got repurposed into my storage unit in my craft room. I quickly eyeballed its new length, whisked it underneath the chop saw, screwed some hooks on and called for my Love to bring his drill.

That raised some eye brows. “You want me to drill in the wall? Really? All right then, but it is going to cost you some favors….”

Sure honey, start drilling already!

“What ?! You want it to hang that low! But it is of no use that low!”

Sure honey, start drilling already!

I have a vision:

I love my little wall decor. I loved decorating it in cheerful and happy colors. We have been having some serious fog here. When I saythere have been grey days, I mean that quite literally, as in the world was covered in a thick grey blanket. So using these happy summer colors brightened my mood immensely. 

My love however kept on grumbling about the impracticality of the arrangement. As if all things need to be useful and practical. What a concept!?

Besides, he had no argument anymore when I used his summer hat as a prob. He bought it this summer. It looks really cute on him. He bought it because he agreed about that, and then he never ever wore it. Talking about useful and practical! At least now that poor summer hat has a function in life!

My bedroom is really starting to feel like a nice place. Adding the mirror and this little corner, has brought it to life. Love it!

The basket btw is also a recent Ikea find. Great for pretty storage of all the extra pillows and plaids I seem to accumulate.

Since I was in full denial of summer being over anyway, I added a little window sill bedroom decor too. My drift wood garland has been updated with a string of lights. I found those lights in a dollar store kind of shop. The lights were already attached to the shells. I had planned to craft something like that myself, but every once in a while it is nice to buy something ready made. Gives me more time….

…… to hang hooks on my walls and decorate little corners.

So how about them hooks? Are you hooked?
