So, today I thought I would do a post about my new bedroom. It was in real need of a makeover and I am really proud of how it has turned out. I was on a budget so, in true TWB style, made a lot of the changes by up cycling and making things myself. Before I decorated, my room was white with one turquoise wall papered wall. Now, it is a soft, dusty blue, accented with gold and grey.
First up is my frame wall. This is my favourite part of the whole room! I have frames hanging from floor to ceiling, all filled with pictures and some of my favourite artwork. You can click the italic links above to see where I got them from. All these frames were different colours, as I found them all lying around the house from years gone by. So I bought a can of gold spray paint and sprayed them all so they match. It was really easy and I think it ties them all together nicely. I also sprayed my wire heart memo holder (it used to be red) and stuck in all my favourite photos.

This is my newest addition to my bedroom, it is my Luminara candle*. If you have never heard of Luminara candles before, they are flameless candles that actually flicker like real candles. It looks and feels exactly like a normal candle but because it is flameless, there is no risk of burning or wax going everywhere! I can't actually believe how realistic it looks. I love having mine on when I'm reading at night, or having a long, relaxing bath.
Olive seems to like my new room too!
I hope you've enjoyed this little post. I have had so much fun taking on this thrifty redecorating project and I am so happy with the outcome. What do you think? Is anyone else in the throws of redecorating?
