Bedroom updates

I'm in the home stretch, 2 weeks left in the semester and then finals and I'm D.O.N.E {for the summer anyways!}. I can feel the 'itch' coming on, I debated skipping class yesterday and hitting up the thrift store. 
Instead I decided to actually finish some of the lose ends I have lying around the house. I know I'm not the only one who starts things and leaves them for WEEKS before finishing!  

First up is the light I found at the flea market!


This may sound crazy, but I've never hung a vintage light for fear of bad wiring and burning the house down.  Yeah, my house burns and that's the LAST time my husband lets me decorate anything.  ha!
This light was too cute to pass on though and it's perfect in the nook of my bedroom.


I painted it my favorite color.



Next, my adoptive parents across the street {really just my neighbors but they are always willing to help a girl out with a project, so I asked them to adopt me!} made me some pretty wooden frames.
I made a little gallery wall above my desk so I have some prettiness to look at, I even included my husband in one of the pictures, he's always complaining the pictures are of Miss M and I {hey I can't help if we are the pretty ones around here!}



I'm going to attempt to keep out the thrift stores until schools out even though I'm dying to paint some furniture. 
Need to focus on finals. Need to focus of finals. Need to focus on finals.
Maybe if I say it enough I'll do it.

Happy Hump Day!

  2. Cute lamp!! I've been meaning to hit up some thrift stores but haven't had the time. Next week is graduation though, so all will be fine after that (well, hopefully, I'll know tonight!). I need to keep working on my office but I'm thinking a little bit more organization and some decoration wouldn't hurt too much... plus, the curtains. Good luck with finals!!!!
