Long over due Bedroom changes!

I have never posted pictures of our bedroom, and I have no idea why not. So lets start from when we bought the house and the room was blue!
I wanted a brown accent wall in the house somewhere, so I went for the bedroom since the accent wall was already there. And I am not one for blue especially that dark of a blue. We painted the wall brown, bought new night stands from Target and used the same bedding and curtains we had from Bub's Graduation gift. We also found the dresser at a yard sale for 30 bucks. Gotta love the yard sale finds! The lamps and mirror are capiz a new shell material I became obsessed with!
We also bought two live palms from Lowe's that are living outside now due to the weather. Otherwise they soak up water through old wine bottles in the bedroom!I think Nella sneaks into every one of my pictures! Yes the blinds are uneven, again from Nella. (Depreciater #1)

Chairs Pretty in Pink

I finally sewed the slip covers for the bar stools! Yay! And I can sew!! After having the sewing machine in my possession for about 4 months now, I completed the chairs in only 3 hours! Who knew sewing would be so easy.. NOT! Let me say the slip covers are done and look lovely, they by no means are high quality! But it's ok because they work for what I need them to do!! I am also going to add some cute green satin ribbons to connect the two pieces.... in a few months... as soon as I can!
Don't mind the ribbon, I cut that off. I was just showing my skills... of not knowing how to tie off the string.
I was told this weekend by a real seamstress that using a hot glue gun to attach the ribbons would be sufficient. So that is what I will be doing! Easy peasy!
Of course during lunch I couldn't help myself and I went into Marshalls looking at dish towels. But again I couldn't help myself and I bought some cute pink and white striped ones to match the chairs!!
Finished Product! Oh and there's the bean! She made it into all of my pics!

Wedding snippet

The color scheme I found for the wedding and for the centerpieces. I love milk glass and I love pairing that with clear vases as centerpieces!
