You really know how to make a room feel special.
Just in case you were wondering if your comments make a difference? They do. And you have REPRESENTED in the comment section this week. When I posted about Zack’s bench and you left all that encouragement, he called me. His exact quote was, “Mom, these comments are getting me hyped up.” And when you left the sweetest comments for my mom? Especially those about my dad? She almost started crying again.
See? See how you can impact someone’s life with just 26 letters and a few random punctuation marks.
You are making this world a better place with your kindness.
We need more people.
Just. Like. You.
All those questions you asked me? All the furniture questions and the rug questions and the wall questions and all the sources? I put them all into one post. Because guess what?
I have a few answers.
Where did you get the throw on the bed?
I got it off Amazon.
It is 50″ x 60″ and it’s SO COZY.
The color shown here is pretty true to the actual color.
Where did you get the bedding?
The bedding was a JOURNEY.
Originally, I was going to order this pom pom bedding from Amazon.
I loved the texture and the price and that it came in a set, but it was out of stock. So I found this plain duvet cover and matching shams (wait until you see the price).
Sizing tip: we ordered it in a king size for the queen size bed to go all the way to the floor and hide the box spring because we didn’t have a bed ruffle.
Then I added this pintucked comforter at the end of the bed to add texture.
Where did you get the pillows?
I shopped my mom’s house for some of the pillows.
The velvet pillows came from Home Goods (you can get them two to a pack with braided cording).
Where did you get the rug?
Y’all. This rug is the FIND OF THE CENTURY.
It has so many different colors that it goes with almost everything. The colors shown here are pretty true to what it looks like in real life. I don’t have a filter on the pictures.
I got it off Amazon here, but it’s almost sold out now.
It’s called Loloi II Wynter WYN-02 Auburn / Multi Oriental Area Rug 7′-6″ x 9′-6″. It comes in tons of different colors, but the “Auburn” color is AMAZING.
I did a little research and found the rug on Overstock under a different name.
You can see it here (and they have all the sizes in stock).
Where did you get the chandelier?
Again, I ordered it off Amazon.
I am all about ordering things now and having them delivered to my house (or my mom’s house).
It’s so pretty and it puts out a good amount of light. It has five bulbs inside the fixture. Make sure to get clear bulbs without a yellow filament because you can see them through the fixture.
It’s 32″ high and 22″ wide with a pretty brushed metal band in the center of the beads.
You can see the fixture here.
What color did you paint the hutch?
Here are all the colors I used in the room.
The wall is Urbane Bronze SW 7048.
The other walls are painted Shoji White SW 7042.
This thrifted hutch that we bought for under $100 is painted with Gateway Gray SW 7644.
If you are shopping in the McKinney area? I cannot recommend Habitat ReStore ENOUGH. We have the BEST ReStore with TONS of furniture and hutches just like this one for super inexpensive prices.
Where did you get the lamps?
They come in a set of two and are really affordable and go in almost any space.
The shade that comes with them is a white shade, but I switched it out for this bisque shade to add a little more dimension to the room.
And that table? ReStore again. It was such a great find. We painted it Shoji White SW 7042 and changed out the knobs.
How did you build the wall?
I’m actually going to do an entire tutorial on this. We created the wall simply using 1″ x 4″.
It’s such an easy project and the perfect solution for those slanted ceilings so many houses have.
You can make it in a day.
Instructions are on their way next week.
I hope this answered most of the questions.
If you have any that I missed you can ask them below.
Again, I cannot thank you enough for all your encouragement.
It was so special to my mother.
And for that?
My heart is happy. 🙂
