Home Decor: Bedroom and Vanity Light

  I've always loved home decor, similar to fashion you are able to express your mood and play with different colors.  When I was little my dad built a giant bunk bed where I had my bed at the top and below I had a play area where I kept my toys and from then on I've always enjoyed decorating my room.  Some of you may have noticed the background of my new videos as well as a few pictures on my Instagram . About 2 months ago we (my boyfriend and I) redecorated my bed area.  My bedroom theme that I am going for is upscale, classy with a touch of contemporary.  We are still in the process of finishing my entire bedroom but for now this is what we have done.  I will be uploading a home decor video explaining further details.

P.S. from the patterned wall to the headboard, my boyfriend made it! (I was the one who came up with the design and did the painting, along with being his assistant through the entire process lol) BIG thanks to my boyfriend, he is such a handyman!  Without him my dream bedroom would not have happened!

Throw Pillows (Front pillow from Ross $12, back two pillows DIY)

If you are interested in creating your own headboard, I found a post by Orange Sugar 

Paint (lowes, when I remember the price and colors I will post it) Stencil Paper (local craft store $5) Printed Image (found online)

White Roses (Walmart $3 for six), Glass Vase (Thrift Store $3)
The white roses are glued to a styrofoam (local craft store $5) ball.

Portfolio Vanity Bar (lowes $10-$15)
After an hour the bulbs get warm, so I chose to have the vanity light bar at the top of the mirror.
