My boyfriend ROCKS!!!

This is the before picture... as you can see my bedspread doesn't fit our huge mattress, in the picture below I couldn't believe how much dust was on the lamp... I think I ran my finger over it a little... Nice! I do love this furniture...Jeff made it for us for our first ever Christmas.. I have sentiment toward it so we are going to be using it in the guest room down stairs...(when that it finished someday)
The wall behind our bed was Jeff's first ever paint job! My first paint job was a wall in our guest bath... We were virgin painters before these jobs..
Our new platform bed has storage underneath, so much so that we were able to take out our dresser, and re-organize our closet.. Also we moved the bench out and put a smaller seat for putting on shoes, this makes our room so much bigger. The top of the night stands are Granite that Jeff salvaged and had cut... What a good recycle boy... We found the taller lamps at TiaPan.. For a steal of a deal... And the bedding was discounted so much that we had to call every store in our area before we found it...I got our new sheets from my mom and dad for Christmas... So everything feels so new and clean... You should have see the gross things we found under the bed... Dust bunnies and the like...EWWWW! I got a new full length mirror that matches to replace the one Jeff made me for a wedding present... I will have to post a couple pictures of it...
It is so fun to have a sweet hubby that has these kinds of talents... I just show him pictures from Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel and say.." I really like this!!!!" Then he works his magic... He pretty much has the best wood skills... ( in a Napolian voice) Luuuucky!!! I love mooching off his talent... When people stop by and say how beautiful it is I say, thanks I have the eye for the wants and Jeff has the skills to make it happen... He gets an extra smooch from me!!!
I am going to run and take a few more pictures and then I will post about the other happenings.....

Your husband is quite incredible. Enjoy the new bedroom. You deserve all the r&r in the world. I have realized that your family's names are way more interesting and unique that ours. Way to be original!

Ok.. I am JEALOUS!!! I can't believe that your husband is so talented!! Your room looks amazing. Now I'm going to see if my husband will do something as simple as rotating the laundry.

I've always been jealous of Jeff's amazing wood working skills. I still love my green mirror that he made for me many moons ago.
Your room looks great. Great job both of you!
