today’s final before & after comes from jen lula, who recently underwent a major bedroom makeover. during her husband’s 2 week business trip to maui, jen decided to keep herself busy by redoing their bedroom. previously, their room had consisted of a mattress on the floor and 1 black dresser (which her husband had had since he was a teen), so this makeover was sorely needed. during the 2 week trip jen painted the walls, bought furniture and painted an incredible hand-drawn mural. her husband’s reaction when he came home? “he was speechless. then he said he had never seen anything so nice before”. needless to say, great work, jennifer! click here for more of jennifer’s stories (paint and furniture details are below, under the images).
[note: sarah’s weeder’s digest post will be up tomorrow- we’re considering moving the column to friday to give the before & after posts some breathing room.]

Our walls are painted Ralph Lauren “Moonlight”, and the mural of the birch trees was hand drawn, scanned and then projected on the wall. It was painted with the same Moonlight color paint with just some white mixed in.
The shelves are filled with photos and artwork that have special meaning to me and my hubby including some of the handmade books we have made each other through the years.
Our furniture and accessories are from a combination of Ikea, Target, Homegoods, TJ Max and some homemade goodies. The faux fire place used to be just a stained oak but I decided to paint it with a matching purple to the coverlet on the bed.
