To Have and To Hold Day 30 | Master Bedroom Makeover Part 4

So, I didn't finish our bedroom makeover.  I'm so close but I'm just not going to get it done before the month is over.  Here are a few photos of what I have so far.

Here it is with both sets of curtains.  Our old curtains on the right, new curtains on the left.  I can't decide if I should keep the new.  As you can see, they are big and poofy, maybe too big and poofy.  I had a moment of weakness in the Ikea, I mean gold and polka-dots, how can a girl resist.  The blue velvet curtains went back and the polka-dot ones kind of ended up in my cart.  We shall see if I decide to keep them...

The gallery wall will be around the bed.  I'm in the process of putting it up.  I traced and cut paper the size of the frames, and taped them up.  So much easier then guessing and lots of nail holes.

I love, love, love my black walls!  I know that they are not for everyone, but they make everything pop, and they are, dare I say, sexy and fun!  I love the gold on black.  I'm very happy with how they turned out. 
These last two weeks have been full and busy.  My wonderful husband flew my mom into town to surprise me for my birthday!  I was completely taken by surprise and oh so grateful to him for planning ahead and to her for coming!  What a delightful gift!  He also gave up a weekend away with me and let my mom go in his place!  We spent a couple days taking long walks, talking, shopping for wardrobe staples (hello skinny jeans for my mama!), talking, eating yummy food (how have I never had blue cheese fries before?  to. die. for.) and more talking.  It was a beautiful couple of days together.

Last week was spent with my mother and this week has been spent celebrating everything Halloween and harvest with a week long visit with a wonderful 5th grade exchange student from Japan.  Life is full and the bedroom makeover had to be pushed back.  I'm hoping to have it up on the blog this next week.  I have a couple more decorating projects to finish and a few to photograph and share and then I want to be done for awhile.  I need a break from decorating.  I will work on  celebrating contentment when it comes to my home as we head into this season of thanksgiving.
