A French Country Winter

For the Love of Ikea

Can I just say...for the love of Ikea

Beautiful French Country Ikea bed makeover.

Their selection of unfinished furniture is remarkable, especially for the price. Although it may not be your exact style, you can make it into something that fit's your style. Using one of my very simple paint techniques shown here to the right is one way of turning any one of these pieces into something magazine worthy.

Using additional things like handmade furniture appliques is another way of making your pieces truly unique to you.

Try your hand at applying a transfer to either your headboard, the front of a dresser or the top of a night stand.

And it's not just the bedroom, look what they have for dining rooms. We all know how expensive a dining room set can be. Here you can create one for inexpensively and it's finished exactly the way you want it.

Each of these paint finishes are done with latex paint, other than the dry brushing technique which is done with stain. Because of this, refinishing a new bedroom set or dining room set for yourself this winter is something that's simple to do right in your house. Just make sure you lay down a drop cloth. You can see how simple these are by going to My Favorite Paint Finishes blog.

Speaking of Winter

These are my new favorite flannel sheets.

Isn't this bedding gorgeous - the pink and grey. The faux fur blanket and pillow are much needed additions to this bedding.

I found these great winter outfits.

I love the worn ripped jeans, just so comfy. I also love the comfy over size sweaters that don't appear to be too thick which is perfect when working during the day. I love the neutrals with dark leggings.
