I wasn’t sure whether to title this post Master Bedroom Makeover….
….or Rapunzel let down your long hair.
When I was little I used to pretend I was a princess in a castle.
Take your pick.
Or my personal favorite…..the queen of the castle with her long cascading locks….
My first thought was that I wanted a bed with curtains.
Actually my first thought was, “Should I paint the room dark navy and purchase red tartan bedding?”
But the curtain idea changed all that.
I needed inexpensive curtains, so I went with drop cloths.
Straight from the aisle of the home improvement store.
Simple and neutral and if you squint they look like linen.
I hung them from the top of the bed on clip-on rings….
…..and started braiding my hair.
I kept the rest of the bedding simple.
White and khaki with a down comforter and a duvet cover from IKEA.
And I added a few spring touches here and there.
Little bits of green and scrabble tiles and lots of white dishes.
I kept the seagrass rug that I’ve had for over four years.
And the gray painted armoire.
But the best part?
Almost as wonderful as being a golden braided hair princess in my new castle. 🙂
