Using Pinterest For Bedroom Renovation

Faced with a second knee surgery in seven months, my Forest Home Media partner took pity on me and decided to help me renovate our master bedroom using Pinterest to add a little style and flair to my recovery.

Forest Home Media is an integrated marketing firm started in 2012 by me and advertising/website expert Dana Tucker and we specializing in home-related business marketing. Check us out here.

Tucker has proven to be a partner of many talents including on-line shopping. Pinterest has really fed this talent of hers and I’ve been the happy recipient of this recently.

Good grief, I’ve got no before pics but let’s just say after clearing out a cabinet filled with 45 books and a 400 pound TV perched on top, it could only get better immediately. Tucker moved our bed to a different wall and began her pinning magic. Check out the “Nancy” board here.

Overstock.com is my new favorite site. With great prices and free delivery, I’ve gotten the bed cover, draperies, pillows, and nail rivet uber cute chairs all delivered to my door – yes, thank you Dana!  Here is an after shot.

In the far corner, the screen door has an ocean mural which inspired the design of the master bedroom.

The wall color was kept the same. The red cushion in the window will be the last change – painting the cushion!

The entire room theme was inspired by my love of the ocean. I’ve captured this passion in a screen door which has a mural of the ocean behind painted by area artist Janet Laws which you see in the above pic as well.

Also important to the renovation has been adding a flat screen television (hiding the cords thanks to Dana instructing the Best Buy geek squad) and the retro dresser Dana found on Craigslist.

DSC_0300Our friend blogger Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist, held a special shopping day at the Nashville area HomeGoods store recently. Busy hosting a Broadway benefit for the Bethlehem Players, Dana played personal shopper for me finding a pretty mirrored tray and lamps with great grasscloth drum shades seen above. Be sure and check out her blog – it’s informative, inspirational and a must-read for us.

The bed was looking pretty dreamy with the pillows Dana picked up again at the Home Good store. She and I recently attended the second anniversary/expansion celebration for popular York & Friends Fine Art Gallery and Dana spotted this PER-FECT painting by artist Jade Reynolds – the final wonderful touch.

DSC_0302I wanted to also share the new light fixture found at West Elm. It looks so much prettier in person – I’m totally loving the mercury glass fixture. Our homestead is lovingly called Blackberry Hollow and located outside of Nashville in the countryside. Things are looking a whole lot more up-to-date thanks to this super fun Pinterest project!
