Shay’s Reveal: Natural, Mid Century Vintage Bedroom
I’m so happy to show you the end results of our bedroom makeover! We painted the walls a warm blue with a contrasting dark gray wall. My friend Casey us gave the vintage dresser and moon print last week as we were searching for a piece which worked out so nicely! (I’m a big fan of the moon print!) We decided on basic textiles with a woven burlap window panel and a gold rod. The new rug has a simple pattern I’m sure we’ll be able to use in future rooms too.
