Window Mirror on the Wall

Blogger is annoying the crap out of me today, I'm having a lot of trouble adding photos.  Please bear with me.

I talked a little about some changes I wanted to make in the master bedroom on my Color Inspiration post in July.

Here is the wall color now.  It's really hard to photograph, but it's a beige color.  I might change it, but I'm feeling really lazy about painting, especially with all the crazy angles in the dormer.
We also bought a new, blue comforter for the bed, after much debate and shopping:

We also bought a cute bed skirt:
Guess what happened though: the stupid bed skirt didn't fit! I washed it (according to package directions).  Then, I air dried it.  It was about four inches too short, all around.  We bought it at Bed, Bath & Beyond, and they let us return it.  

Aggravating!  We bought a different skirt, but I don't have a picture of it, yet.  Don't you hate it when stuff like that happens? 

Remember this small, red, window mirror?

Handy Man found this window/mirror for $4 at a yard sale!  I like it.  It's bigger than the red one, and takes up more "visual space" on that part of the wall. 
Only $4! Can you believe it?
I like it.  Handy Man just couldn't pass it up for $4. We haven't done anything else yet, we kind of lost steam.  But the little changes are nice.  I'll show you a picture of the new bedspread soon.

The $4 mirror is perfect. Who can blame Handy Man for going for it?

It's surprising that a fabric would shrink that much, especially when you didn't run it through the hot dryer. It's "comforting" (get it?) to know that Bed Bath & Beyond has a forgiving return policy.

We're looking forward to seeing the updated bedroom.
