DIY Bedroom Wall Collage Using Upcycled Frames.

Over the past while I have been drooling admiring, the many different wall collage ideas I have seen on Pinterest. In the past two weeks I managed to get Pinspired and do a wall collage for our master bedroom wall upcycling old picture frames. It is not complete but close. Id like to add a few more things to it, filling in some gaps.  Will update with the finished project with the master bedroom makeover reveal.

You’re So Vain….

You probably think this post is about you, Don’t you? Don’t you? Every time I sit down at  my new bedroom vanity I received for my 40th birthday last December, this oldie but goodie song by Carly Simon manages to pop in my head.

Like I manage to do with just about everything I find myself analyzing why this happens. Is it possible that after 40 years I’ve suddenly become vain or is it because I like to associate music to almost everything in my life or maybe the vanity has aided me in finally finding the confidence in my own beauty?

I have always wanted my own vanity since being a little girl and now I wish I would have invested in one sooner in life. Something about sitting in front of a vanity with the mirror and lights getting myself ready empowers my self-confidence.

Vanity table (Ikea) = $120.00
Lights (Ikea)= 19.99 each- $39.98
Chair and cover $20.00

Boost in my self-confidence = PRICELESS
