Our Updated Bedroom Dresser Space + a $100 Snapfish Giveaway!


Our Updated Bedroom Dresser Space + a $100 Snapfish Giveaway from Bubby and Bean

For whatever reason (maybe because we're the only ones who really see it?), our bedroom has been the most neglected room in the house when it comes to decor. We've slowly been adding bits and pieces (a new comforter here, a picture there), but it's been a several year process. Things finally started to look finished toward the end of last year, with one exception - the dresser area. Although we'd replaced the two mismatched (and very dated) dressers we'd used for years with a simple black double dresser piece last year, the wall above it was empty and the only 'decor' on it was a basket full of Essley's diapers. A couple of weeks ago I decided that it was finally time to update this space.

Travel is a big part of our life, and I thought it would be cool to incorporate photos from our travels into the redesign. I knew that Snapfish had just launched a new version of their site that offers a ton of different ideas for bringing photos into the home, so I started the project by browsing all of their home decor products. I absolutely loved the look of their canvas prints, and had a vision of getting several canvas prints made from black and white travel photos and using them as the focal point for the space. The next task was choosing which images to use. Robbie and I both hold a special place in our hearts for the southwest, so I decided to use photos from three different Arizona trips we'd taken: one of a Saguaro cactus outside of Scottsdale, one of Sedona, and one of the Grand Canyon.


The new Snapfish site was super easy to use, with user friendly tools that allowed me to be as creative as I wanted. (It's tablet and smartphone friendly too, so you can create your projects on any device.) It's also really nice because you have all your photos at your fingertips. You can add and save photos to your Snapfish account from almost anywhere, including Instagram, and then have instant access to them when it's time to create your projects. And there are tons of Snapfish Home Decor items to choose from, including canvas prints, acrylic prints, wood and aluminum panels, throw pillows, blankets, and more. I ended up choosing a 20" x 24" canvas print and two 11" x 14" canvas prints.

In just a few days, my photo canvases arrived and it was time to get to work. I wanted these prints to be the main focus in terms of decor, so I started by hanging them. The space instantly looked better. From there I added some stacked books and one of the 'Free Spirit' prints from my shop (which went well with the wandelust/traveling theme). I wanted to incorporate some natural elements to complement the photos of nature, so next I added a couple of succulent plants, a small cactus, and some of my favorite crystals. After some rearranging, the project was complete. We both love waking up in the mornings and seeing memories from our southwest travels right in front of us! And the fact that we took the photos ourselves makes it even more special.

  3. We've been wanting to get a canvas print of one or a couple of our photos of Uluru-Kata T'juta in Australia for our living room. We have a huge wall that has nothing on it and is waiting for the canvases and we even have the photos picked out, but we haven't been able to afford it. Crossing my fingers!!

  6. I love the look of your new bedroom space, Melissa! Funnily enough, I think our bedroom is the most decorated space in our home - it was the first space I took care of when we moved into our place, because sleeping comfortably is so important. For me, the rest is all details ;)
