Bedroom Makeover

There are two bedrooms in our current apartment. The biggest bedroom we sleep in, C keeps all of his clothes, and I hang half of my clothes. The other bedroom is used as a guest bedroom, and in the closet is a futon mattress, storage boxes, the rest of my clothes in a dresser, and all of my craft supplies. We'll call the guest bedroom my bedroom. So my bedroom currently is very ugly in my opinion.


Extra dresser I have no idea what to do with yet 

 I didn't really mind it too much, until I redid my dresser. I'm tired of ugly cheap floor lamps, and mismatched bedding, old comforters, etc. I don't really have much space and because we live in an apartment, we don't really want to mess with painting. But that's no excuse, I read tons of design blogs where people living on a budget or in small spaces have 'to die for' looks. The dresser is such a focal point I decided to re-do my whole bedroom giving it a put together more grown up look. I made a theme of things I want to do to pull the space together, but I got side tracked the past couple of months and haven't really gotten anything for it completed besides the wall art C and I made. Click the link to read up on my new theme and plans.






I already have collected cans and plastic bottles to work on a flower wall art thing inspired by all of the awesome displays that are always up in every Anthropologie store I've ever been to. One of the easier changes that I think I'm going to love, and that will help bring the whole room together is the duvet cover I plan on making. The only thing that's been stopping me is that I want to make it in emerald, and I haven't been able to find emerald flat sheets anywhere. Anyone have any ideas? I'm holding out, because I don't want to make it in white unless it's a last resort. I can't wait to get back on track and to post pictures as the room comes together!
