Making our Apartment our Home: Bedroom

Today, I'm showing you our bedroom!  

We really wouldn't have much of a bedroom if it weren't for our families - kind of like we would similarly not have living room furniture without them!

Hand me downs are really great - especially for newlyweds just getting started!  The entire set of dressers and night stands are a set that Tyler's parents gave us - which has helped out tremendously!  

Below is the bed and our wedding quilt!


The above quilt was our wedding gift from Tyler's parents - made by his mom!  As you can imagine, she spent a lot of time working on the quilt for us!  


Here is the night stand - part of the set Tyler's parents gave us.  The lamp was also given as a wedding gift - we've really enjoyed it!

I made a recent change over our bed with pieces of burlap put into picture frames to spell our family name.



I hung this shelf on my side for my scarves, and on top I have (left to right) a gift from a Chinese friend, one of my favorite pictures of us, and a wooden grasshopper toy that I played with as a kid.

I found this mirror at a yard sale recently!  I've been wanting a self standing mirror for a long time, so glad I finally got one!  Below the mirror I have several keepsake boxes, the 150 Days Away book for Tyler, and my three favorite stuffed animals!

Ladybug and Frog were my best buds since I was little!

 The mirrored dresser set and the necklace hanger I recently made from a wood sample (far left) - it works like a charm!  I just nailed the toothed hangers on the back.

Love being able to display my antique tins on this!





Missed the last part of the apartment tour? Keep up with the series here!

    I love that quilt, and it must have taken SO long?! That's a labour of love for sure! Also love the tins, their colours :)

    1. Thanks Erica! I know she spent the greater part of the year before we were married working on it, but I really have no clue how much time it must have taken her to make it and put it together. I'm a sucker for those kind of tins, I always end up buying them!

  2. That's a handmade quilt??? Wow!! We have so many hand-me-downs from people in our house: TV, bookshelves, 2 beds, vanity, cupboards... :) It's the newlywed life!

  3. I can't believe you found that mirror at a garage sale! I searched craigs list like a crazy lady ALL the time till I could find one for a reasonable price. I probably don't want to know what you paid for yours...lol

    1. Veronica, I think I paid either $15 or $20...it was from a nice Hispanic family whose yard sale I'd gone to before the previous year and I think they were cutting me a deal because they didn't speak English, and they thought I wasn't going to buy it. lol

  7. I love the hanging scarves. So artsy and flowing. It is nice to see a room full of possibilities. So many run out to purchase everything at once and then, as the marriage matures, the bedroom decor doesn't reflect them as a couple, it only reflects two merging personalities.

    1. Thanks Jeannie! I like your philosophy to leave room for changes and additions, it is true that circumstances and people change over time. :)
