Teddy Bear totally approves of this messy styled new bedroom look. And when shes good to go, I just listen! 
I think thats why cats cant smile.. they mean business.
This authentic horsegate was discovered in a neighbours burn pile. I was ever so delighted to take it off their hands. Some added hooks make for some fun decorating options!
Wreaths galore bounce to and fro. This will be fun to change out for the different seasons.
But since spring is upon us, live blooms in galvanized mini buckets alongside a barbed wire wreath make it so indoors as well. 
No worries, the wreath is WELL above where a head would rest. (I checked)
LOVE me some pillows. The denim pillow actually set the theme for the colour scheme. All of these were picked up at a local thrift for pennies.
This old table top was used as a bed tray. Lets blog! :D
Call me crazy, but I do like things messy! Would you believe this look was carefully staged?!? 
Bonus - get out of bed and DONT make your bed. 
Trick for short bedding... fake it with added sheets stuck in between the mattresses. The look is layers of soft folds that drape right to the floor.
A little peek of lace was yet another sheet trick. Isnt it a cute look?
My messy little horse gated bedroom is a fun casual place to hang out any time of day.
Decorating should be fun. And this bedroom indeed makes me smile. :)

I desired a new look for the bedroom. So I stole my front entry horse gate coat hook apparatus and created a headboard out of it. Yay, new bedroom!

Next up? A new front entry look. My coats are still on the floor...

But peeked on the site and that gorgeous cat of yours just drew me right in. She is awesome! As to your bed, it looks so comfy. No need to make a bed when it looks that! Love the bed tray, too. You are so the queen of wood pallets! It all looks great!
