The Shelf… Decorating My Bedroom One Step at a Time

Monday, February 7, 2011

I was so busy with my American Crafter project last week that I didn’t get much of a chance to do any other crafting. I did get a chance to decorate a shelf in my bedroom.

We moved into our home a little over a year and a half ago. I love how I have decorated every room in my house except one, my bedroom. Well I guess I can’t even say that, because I have yet to decorate it. I can’t make up my mind on what to do with it. I make my husband hang something up, but then I’ll take it down the next day. (he loves that ;) My bedroom decor has stayed boring for too long. I am tried of talking about how I want to decorate it. I am finally taking steps to do something about it. I know decorating a shelf is a small thing, but I am proud of myself for at least doing something.

As you will probably notice I used some of my valentine decor as inspiration for the decor on this shelf.


I printed out my new owl calendar. You can create your own (for free) HERE.


I took a chipboard H and covered it in burlap. I even added a little flower. The flower is made from a brown paper lunch sack.

Just in case you think that I have a strange obsession with owls, that is not the case. I want to put a picture of me and my husband in the love frame, but I haven’t found the right one yet. The love frame is actually just one of those cheap plastic frames. I think mine is from Target. I just added a button and some stickers.


Tutorial for book page picture frame found HERE. I tied together some old books with some twine to finish it off.


One small step to finally getting my bedroom decorated. I have to say that I am satisfied with it… for now ;)
