Bedroom Makeover Update & New Etsy Purchase!

Our bedroom makeover ~ in progress
My "Inspiration Room"!

Markie checking out my handmade pillow & shams!
My new Bird Tower I got from Carrie's SnipPets Etsy Shop!

Happy Friday everybody! I was so excited yesterday because I got my fabric in the mail that I ordered to make my new pillow shams & also got my package from Carrie at SnipPets with my beautiful birdy tower! You can see it in the picture above. I knew it would look great with the colors in my room. Carrie is an awesome artist, cat lover & spay/neuter advocate. Check out her blog here & read all about her art & cat adventures!
I stayed up late last night finishing my pillow shams & after making the bed this morning I just love how they look! Markie seems to approve too. I got some simple tab-top curtains at Target yesterday & was planning to sew accent panels on them from my leftover sham fabric but didn't have quite enough so that will have to wait. I still want to get new lamp shades, dark bamboo blinds & a green rug to finish off the room. One step at a time though. And some day I'm going to splurge & buy that fabulous bird pillow shown in my "Inspiration Room" photo! I think it just makes the whole room! I'd REALLY LOVE to have that carved bird headboard (I'll keep dreamin') or at least a different darker wood one but I'll settle for the pillow!
I'm off to Colorado tomorrow for a fun weekend with my sister ~ shopping, hiking, relaxing & the Il Divo concert Monday night! I'll be back Tuesday. Have a great weekend!

The inspiration room isn't nearly as nice because it's missing a cute cat on the bed!

Thanks so much for showing the bird tower! I am sooo happy you like it! It's not nearly as cute as that furry sweet pea in the bed :)...he's the best accessory EVER!!
Hugs,
Carrie
