Wordless Wednesday: Our Bedroom

I know that I've shared glimpses of our bedroom makeover here and there for the past couple of weeks, but I wanted to give you all the grand tour.
We recently did a complete overhaul on our bedroom, and I am in love with the way it turned out!
It was actually a little unexpected, and with next to no budget for "redecorating", we had to go with what we had. 
I made a trip to Target for some organizational items: shoe-rack, small set of plastic drawers, etc. My mom also pitched in and scrounged up my old, old dresser from her spare bedroom. This dresser has been around for forever and I kind of forgot how cool it is! It is in desperate need of some new stain and has a few wobbly drawers, but we were in desperate need of a place to stash our we quickly became best friends (and a fresh coat of stain will make it's appearance this spring, I promise). 

 We snagged our end-tables from our living room set and we are using them as night stands. I actually really like the way they look in our room....sorry to anyone that was looking for a place to set their drink in our living room ;)
I have a list of items that I'd love to order from Target and Ikea to finish the room off (like, um, a headboard. And a bookshelf), but for now I'm in love with our new room! It feels so light and airy and just......fresh! In case you don't remember what our room looked like before, here's a little glimpse:

Yeah, it was crowded and a little overwhelming. Now our bedroom is a clean, welcoming place. I think Elliott would agree.

Love it! Your bedding is awesome! I have been in the process of making over our bedroom, but it's taking forever. I should hit up my Mom for some of my old furniture. Ha ha

I love your bed set! I am trying to figure out how I want to re-do my room. it makes it a lot harder when you have a very limited budget.

A huge improvement! I love the bedding, and the accent wall. How do you like the bed with the window at the top?
