New Home Design: Part One

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Monday!
I was thankful for the rainy day we had here because it brought the temp down about 20 degrees. I do not do hot weather so I have been miserable in the 106 temps we've been having the past week.

I spent most of my rainy day playing and reading to my little man. He is getting his 1 year molars and they are kicking his butt... During E's nap I started to mentally decorate our new house.

The room I am most excited about is the master bedroom. At the house we are in now our room is a boring solid white with grey bedding. I am so tired of zero color.
Here is the master bedroom in the new house:
and here is what we will be changing:
we will be making this headboard with this yellow fabric, instead of grey.

and we will be using this amazing fabric to make curtains.

we may be taking this chair from Ephraim's room and putting it where they have the chair, in the picture.
What do ya'll think about that?

I'm in love with these printables, and this one will probably be making an appearance somewhere in our room.
Soon I will be going thrift-ing/estate sale-ing/yard sale-ing/flea market-ing in search of a dresser {because our bedroom is not only colorless but basically furniture-less} a bedside table and something to put our tv on. I will be refinishing most, if not all, of what I find. I could not be more excited about having a garage to refinish furniture in. I am hoping to get good enough at it to where I can put pieces in my store. {don't forget if you use the coupon code blogreaders10 at checkout you will recieve 10% off!}

I know our bedroom should be the third room on our list of rooms to re-do when we move in but I am so excited about it I might make it the first room.

Coming soon:

    Thanks! I've always been a huge fan of yellow and grey and their wall color was just perfect for it. You're right, it could work with so much.

  3. That is going to look great! Yellow and grey is one of my favorite color combinations! I love the fabrics!

    I am really loving the yellow and grey right now! I'm trying really hard not to bring it into ever room in the house haha. Thanks! So happy to have found that fabric for less than $14 a yard!!
