Bedroom Decor

Brandon informed me the other day that I was done decorating every other room in the house and that i needed to start decorating our Bedroom. I don't know why, but I always do our bedroom last because I haven't really decided on what I want to do with our bedroom. So I have decided that I want to go with a more vintage look. With deep reds, golds, and browns.


I have made two of the three pieces of wall art. I am making them out of pieces of wood from Hannah's Dresser that broke when we moved. So all of the material I had on hand so this project didn't cost me a dime!









The first thing I did was paint the pieces of wood with black paint.


I then picked out all the paper I was going to use. I used most everything from a company called 7gypsies. They sell scrapbook and hardware supplies that have a very vintage feeling. I picked about 8 different pieces of paper. Some were red, gold, black, and brown.


I then ripped the paper into different pieces and sizes and mod podged them into place. I didn't do any kind of pattern because I wanted it to look rustic and old.


I cut out the words: love, cherish, and adore. ( I haven't made the one that says cherish yet)
I mod podged each word in the middle of the board.

To make everything come together I brushed everything with some black paint and wiped it off.

The one that says "love" I added three black keys with some ribbon as well as some black and gold buttons on the bottom that say different words.

The one that says "adore" i added two crowns and embellished them with buttons.

I love using mod podge, but i used a glossy finish for this project and i would have rather used a matte finish so i might go over them again with a coat of mod podge but use a matte finish.
