{Before + After} From Gray to Glam

{Before + After} From Gray to Glam

My bedroom got a makeover, y'all, and it's a big one. Remember what my room looked like before?

It looks just a teensy bit different now...

How. Amazing. Is. This. Fur. Blanket. That was my bedroom splurge, a luxe find at Restoration Hardware. The rug is a vintage over-dyed piece I found on eBay, and the mirrored bench is from Amazon!

This gold mirror was a fab Craigslist find, and I repurposed the curtain tie-backs from my previous dressing room as jewelry holders in the bedroom.

This cute little elephant garden stool was also an inexpensive Amazon find, and the gorgeous curtains are from Wayfair.

I keep my cocktail rings and perfumes tidy on an antique brass tray I picked up at the Georgetown Flea Market, and my makeup brushes found a home in a vintage cocktail tumbler from Etsy.

And aren't these dressers EVERYTHING. I grabbed the pair from one of my favorite local vintage furniture refurbishers, and these mid-century beauties are practically one-of-a-kind. The mercury glass lamps were a budget treasure from Home Goods, and the sheepskin rug was one of the only things to make it from the old bedroom into the new.

It's dark, it's feminine, it's moody, and it's glamourous. So what do you think of the new glam design??
