Master Bedroom Refresh

I finally found some time to freshen up our master bedroom for summer.
Better late than never, right?

The first thing I did was paint this little rustic stool that I found
at a barn sale a couple years ago.
The poor thing had been hanging out in a dark corner of our basement
waiting patiently for its makeover.

I think it looks very sweet now at the end of our bed especially with
 the addition of a basket of flowers.

I took down the plates I had above our bed and on a whim
I decided to try placing my herb drying rack in their place.
I really liked how it looked but it was a little plain so I added
a wooden plaque above it to complete the look.

Also, hidden away was a matelasse coverlet, that I brought out
for a lighter feel and look.

This is my favorite little Cath Kidston pillow purchased from Ebay long ago.
It's a little small for the bed but I do think it looks kind of cute and I like the addition
of the pinkish red flowers.

At the end of the bed, I threw on a cozy throw for those afternoon naps.
(If I ever get to have one of those!)

Here it is all freshened up.
A quick, easy and inexpensive change that
really lifted my spirits.

I hope you are all having a great summer!

As always, thanks so much for visiting ~
