Same site...issuu.com but lots of practice.

Actually they are brand new. They are standard 6" recessed cans with this special lamp shade trim ring. My wife hates overhead lighting, but these work for her. The lights are spaced around the bed corners and also illuminate the doorways to her walk-in closet and the entrance to the room. The shades help keep the light from glaring down on the bed, and they look really nice dimmed.
I also have a thrifted double up-light for reading that works with the same shades when they are inverted. Pics of the finished room to come in a few days/weeks.

If you're struggling on the accent wall, have you considered painting it to match the rest of the room? A lot of times an accent wall will simply break a space up and make it feel smaller. Just an idea to save you some stress for your guests!
Considered it, but sticking with the accent wall for now. Hoping to have a nice big piece of B/W artwork up there when it's finished.
Closet system not hung yet, but will be John Louis to match my wife's closet....solid wood with mahogany finish.
Her closet...don't mind her mess...we are under construction. There is a second shoe rack on the opposite wall.
Coffee table after I cut the legs down. It is in small format here, it has a butterfly leaf that opens it up to roughly a 5 foot square.
The door behind Holly is also from the same set the closet doors came from...dumpster gold. We wanted to separate the kitchen from the living room from time to time, but didn't have room for the swing of a proper french door.....so.....
I don't have a finished pic on my phone, but they are mounted on barn door track and slide side to side.
I could go on and on, the whole house is full of thrifted / re-purposed projects. What can I say...I'm a cheap bastard.
