Bedroom Redo Underway!

As you may know, I am little by little trying to put together our bedroom. We finally got the room color finished. We choose "toasted grey" for the walls and a slightly darker shade for the ceiling. I think a darker shade on the ceiling of a bedroom makes the room seem warmer and cozier... We got a couple things hung finally and I bought curtains from Ikea last night, which I will show you when Matt puts them up!
My mom asked me if I wanted these and of course my response was, "Oh my God, YES!" Apparently this wall art was the first thing my mom and dad bought for their home when they got married:) Isn't it cool? We hung it over our bed. It is just exactly what I didn't know I was looking for, ya know? I kept trying to find something different and beautiful that wasn't just a framed piece of art or a mirror, but something that was more like this! I love it!
This was a wedding gift from my old roommate and best friend Andrea and her boyfriend Gus. It is a large photo of Matt and I made completely out of much smaller photos of us! I love love love it. It was one definitely our most unique and one of our most loved gifts:) 
I saw this in the March issue of Country Living Magazine and it was like a light bulb going off in my head! This would be the perfect nightstand for Matt!! I can't wait to start gathering cool, old suitcases! What do you think? 

P.S. Don't forget about my custom hat giveaway!! You have until March 14th:)
