More bedroom projects - not like that, don't be dirty! We got a new head board and completed the photo collage wall a while back. Now see if you can guess what we changed...
After : (I know the coloring is off... I am being lazy about photoshopping)
again a light / lamp shade. The old light base was navy blue. It was pretty uggo and had a lot of scratches. The shade was also navy blue... uggo again. I decided to spray paint the base silver and got a new white shade from Ikea. Nifty, I know.
In other areas of our bedroom I made another change. This was also courtesy of Ikea. In the picture below, I didn't have a comforter of any kind on the bed. I knew I wanted something white, but didn't want it to be plain.
I know you cannot tell too much from way back here...
I liked the texture of this one a lot. It is actually a duvet cover. I decided I wanted a down comforter for the bed, but I was afraid it would be too warm. Ikea has this amazing system with down comforters - they are ranked from 1 to 4 or 5. 1 is very light and can even be used in the summer. 4/5 is very warm and should not be used if, like me, you have serious night sweats (which I was hoping was just the post preggo hormones leveling out, but not so sure 15 weeks later that is still the case). So, we got a 2 - here's the info. I am still sweating like a pig. But, it's pretty great. It feels really luxurious. Here is the deets on the duvet cover. Yay for good deals!!
I have one little tip about down comforters. I have noticed that they always run a little smaller than they should. Meaning, the label may say queen, but it will be too small for your queen-sized bed. I wish that I knew why. But I don't. So, I always buy mine a size larger. That goes for most comforters, to be honest though.
Without further ado, off to bed I go to snuggle with the hubs under our super comfy, not-too-hot down comforter. Goodnight, all!
