Master Bedroom Phase II: Lighting

Our work in progress Master Bedroom Renovation.....

I am pretty complete with all of the bedding. I have the new duvet covers, new bed skirt, new sheets, and some new throw pillows. I still need pillow cases for our euro pillows and our King pillows. I am continued to search for those. However, this week I did manage to buy the new lighting we will be using in our new master.

I bought 2 of these beautiful turquoise lamps to go on our night stands. They are the perfect size for out small night stands and the turquoise totally pops next to the Duvet. I got each of these lamps from Target for $9.99!! How could I resist! The clear glass bottom reminds me of some of the uber expensive and beautiful lamps from Pottery Barn.

 (see the pretty turquoise in the duvet)

I also wanted a pretty lamp to go on the new dresser that I am refinished for our master. I am going with organic burlap shades and I found this owl candle at Kirklands and I had to have it! Not only do I LOVE owls, but I love that this one is two owls in Love. I picked up this lamp for $24.99, and I think it is going to look great!

We have a ceiling fan in our room and I would love to replace it with a beautiful chandelier but the hubs and I LOVE the fan, I have trouble sleeping without one, so for now that will stay the way that it is. Maybe one day we can get a fandelier!

I am also so excited about the dresser I bought to refinish. I have been searching Craigslist for months looking for the right one, and I was so excited when this one popped up and the seller was only 4 miles from our house! WIN!!! And it was only $25!! WIN!!! Here is how it looks right now

I love the legs and the fact that it has 9 drawers!! It is going to look so great refinished! Stay tuned to see how it turns out!

We still have a lot to do in the master, just trying to do a little at a time. Our To Do List
  • Paint (pick out paint, and paint the room)
  • curtains
  • art work
  • headboard
  • finish the dress
The goal is to have it all complete by the end of February!!

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Love the lamps! I really like the combo of blue/turqoise and brown. The burlap shades give them a kind of a rustic but still modern touch.
