All Hail The Stag Head

Originally, that wasn't supposed to be the title of this post as I was trying to focus on our entire bedroom as a whole since I'd like to think I'm about 90% done decorating it but I mean, the stag head really steals the show here.

I had been eyeing this fabulous iron stag head for months...maybe even a year now, and finally, Beau made all my stag head dreams come true when he mounted it above our bed this past weekend. While some girls prefer pretty paintings or mirrors, or even framed photos above their beds, this girl, not so much. Give me a dead animal and I'm happier than a bird with a french fry. Especially a dead animal that comes in the form of iron, and can be bought at a store, and didn't require me to fork up a few thousand dollars to go send my husband to shoot one for me.

It's safe to say my bed and side tables are complete. I mean, 19 (yes...that's a 1-9.) pillows in enough. 3 euro pillows, 6 king size pillows, 2 standard pillows, 2 kind size decorative pillows and 6 throw pillows should suffice. Right? And don't even blame me for all this. Beau is a pillow HOARDER. He literally goes and steals every pillow off of every other bed in our house and uses it on our bed until we have guests over. I blame him.




Ignore the shotgun case peeking out from underneath our bed...



I said I was about 90% done decorating our bedroom because the other 10% is missing in this photo. I'm still searching for the perfect addition to go above our dresser. A large mirror? Another animal head? A gallery wall? Heck. I'll figure it out one of these days. Until then, I'll continue to enjoy this big blank wall that's been there for over a year now.

I've been extremely patient when it comes to decorating our house. Yes-we've been in it for over a year now but I decided when we first moved in that I was going to think long and hard about every hole I put into my walls, every piece of furniture that we'd be purchasing and every decorative item I've had my eyeball on. Being the most impatient person to grace this planet, I've really surprised myself with this but I decided early on that I wanted to decorate our house the right way, not the quick way.

And I'm glad I waiting patiently for my precious stag to arrive. ;) He completes me.

It's still a major work in progress but what do you think?!

  3. Totally understand the "patience in decorating" thing. I don't want to decorate just to decorate. I want it to be right and what I want. My grandmother...totally does not understand my approach, ha :P

  16. love it girlfran! i feel ya on the patient part....being in the new house, we have really tried to take our time too. we have tried to avoid buying junk that we will not use, just to fill an empty space. we still have a ways to go, but we are getting there. and the right way is so much better than the quick way! Amen to that!!!

  19. Super cute! I think you should "frame" the stag. Spray paint a frame and just hang it surrounding the head. http://www.thecreativemom.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Nic-Nac-Shelf-1-700x557.jpg

    Also I'm a fan of the mirror or a big gallery wall! Just thoughts!
