First up, lets take a look at where we started.
This looks a little sadder than it should because I stripped the bed to emphasize the massive mc'mattress issue, which we remedied several months in. Also fun elements to note, the collection of paint color options amassing to the right of the bed (and there were way more than that by the time we chose Van Deusen Blue, Benjamin Moore).
Still massive mc'mattress, but we painted! Or to be more accurate, Eli the BuJew and his merry men painted. I am in love with the color, and am starting to convince Aaron it was worth it to make countless trips to multiple paint stores, to paint an unknown but alarming number of swatches on the wall, in prep for this love.
Ok well good news, we do own sheets and blankets and pillows. Speaking of pillows, those gorgeous blue ones are a recent addition to the room. I had exchanged some kitchenware at Williams Sonoma from the wedding, and picked up pillows at Williams Sonoma Home.

Some might find it odd to exchange wonderfully functional kitchenware for the 5th, 6th and 7th pillow now gracing our bed, but thankfully I married a man who understands.
Also, we lowered mc'massive mattress, more on that in this post (which is long).
We also took a quick pilgrimage to Mecca (Ikea) this weekend, and among other goodies picked up these lamps for our bedside tables.

$49 felt a little expensive for Ikea, but considering the cheapest alternative I was considering on Amazon was twice the price, I was on board. And, they come with a dimmer, which is perfect for late night reading.
We still have a few pieces to go before she is finished, but not much: a rug, and three dressers and maybe a bench.
The rug just need to be large, neutral, and comfortable. I am planning on putting delightful area rugs on top of it, so it is just the base. And the dressers, they're the functional addition. The mismatched nightstands are on the chopping block, one is going to the mancave, and the other (Ikea) is just going. In their place we're getting real 42" dressers, hello storage.
I also have some yet-to-be-installed art, antlers, and a blue rug.
This is what it all should look like when it is done.

There's your beautification update! I think the bedroom will be the first room that will be done, or done'ish. What do you think so far?
