Black | White & Gold

The Master Bedroom Plan
 I am loving the simple clean aspect so far in this space! Although My husband HATES the lamps. I repeat Hates my lamps. I LOVE them! They are solid brass Awesomeness. I just picked up some Ikea Shades for them and they are still Awesome to me. So now that they have shades he says they are Fine. 
I know in guys language it means Whatever Megan! :) 

What do you think? Do you like my Gold Garage Sale Lamps??

I added an Antique Mirror and that Ikea Throw that is a Steal of a deal for $20!
The room is slowly coming together with accessories, and I NOW Love My New Master Bedroom!

You had me at Hello! | Black & White Stripes


 I just picked up this Striped Throw at IKEA that I have been eyeing ever since it came out! So Excited. It really made my weekend along with my new lamp shades. Plus, I love that is feels like a sweater too! :)

And this rug. Yes I still want to own you some day. Sigh!

Happy Weekend!

Adding Architechtural Detail

It's all in the Details! Truly. I painted my Master Bedroom "Dunn Edwards Swiss Coffee" (The best white. In my opinion. I Love it!) By adding all the Architectural Trim, Now it just pops. Don't you think?

$30 DIY Antler Wreath (Super Easy)

I want to show you more of this room. But I can't! I know it pains me. I want to show it all, but it's not finished yet. My Antique Lamps need shades. ugh. AND I need some art work to list a few. It's a work in progress what can I say. But my moldings are up. WOOO HOOO!

BIG thanks to the Hubby! You Rock!

 DIY Antler Wreath
 But I did want to show off my DIY Wreath I made for $30. I picked through a box of broken antlers at this antique store and got them all for $20. Then $10 in Spray Paint (took 2 cans of white). But I must say if you do this too. Use a glue gun to glue the pieces together not just wire. I learned that the hard way. :)

Lounging Around Outside

What a Beautiful Day here in Utah! Last night we had Watermelon for the first time this year, and it was Delicious! I can't wait for school to get out and Summer to Begin! It really had me thinking about summer time and Lounging around outside while my kids play...

What I love about Summer:  (I could go on and on. Seriously. But here are but a few ;))
  •  Hanging out in the backyard
  • Longer days in the sun 
  •  Bowls of Ice cream
  • Laying out at the pool
  • BBQ's- Steaks and Burgers on the Grill.
  • Running through the Sprinkler
  • Warmer nights to hang out in
  • Acting like a kid again!
 Are you enjoying this warm weather as much as me??


Happy Monday! Go enjoy the Outdoors!
