My Dreamy Beach Bedroom

So I had some color swatches taped above my computer screens for approximately  7 months and I knew I wanted to try to paint a beach scene in my room as that is where I am the happiest.

I searched Pinterest for some inspiration and stumbled upon this ombre painting pattern. I knew this would be perfect for my room makeover. I surprised myself one morning this summer and drove to the home improvement store and  purchased the paint.

I could not believe it that after waiting so many months I was finally going to do it.

I am SUPER excited of how the room turned out. Sure I did not get the technique exactly as it was shown but now I get to go to sleep and wake up at the beach. This makes me VERY happy. (Especially since I also recorded about 20 hours of beach sounds during my last trip to Cuba and I fall asleep to that every night)

Here are the before pictures

Tardis Bathroom Remodel

Tardis Door

Last year I was introduced to Doctor Who and binged with all the newer episodes starting with the 9th Doctor.

I really enjoyed David Tennant and found him to be real easy to watch. I must admit I was sad to see him go and replaced by the 11th Doctor. It took me a little bit to get used to Matt Smith but has since became my favorite doctor. His playful ways and his whole attitude is just very enjoyable.

 

For mother’s day this year I told my kids that even tho I really enjoy candles and body spray I had enough of these things. So off my kids went shopping. My Son Linux surprised me with a lovely Doctor Who poster While I was super happy I had no where to really put it so it sat behind my desk rolled up until last weekend when I decided that it would be one of the focal point in my half bathroom/laundry room.

I decided I would pay tribute to Doctor Who and went with a Tardis door and Doctor Who decor. I am pretty happy with how it all turned out Here are the steps I took to get to where it is att. I do play on putting the 3 smaller picture on the wall behind the toilet and I will most likelt mount the poster to the wall. I would then like to draw the crack in space and time between the shelf and the picture. I did not need those shelves but decided I was tired of having clothes fall behind the washer and dryer so that is why they are there.

My Inspiration Wall

Inspirational Wall Done

This wall has been something I have wanted to work on for such a long time. I moved in a year ago and this wall was just gray. I then decided to decorate it during Halloween with this witch backdrop it was really cool but when I went to take the decal off it peeled all the paint

Solaris as a zombie

I then decided to make a bold statement in my house ( And invest in some good paint Sico Revolution) and the wall ended up looking like this. It stayed like that for a few months.

I knew I wanted to make this wall my focal point of the house and have been working on bits and ends for a makeover of it for a long time.  I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!! That I have finally finished all the pieces and that I got my wall up. I really wanted to get this done before my kids come back from their 2 month vacation with their dad so being they will get home on Saturday I just  made it in time.
