Master Bedroom

Bedroom Makeover
Sometimes I can't believe I waited so long to paint our bedroom. The gold paint drove me nuts the minute we did our first walk through but paint was desperately needed elsewhere first. Now that it's done, I can sigh a contented sigh and relish in the quiet calm of our white bedroom. I'm also quite excited about our little reading nook. I found the mid century chair on craigslist when we first moved in and then found an upholsterer (also on craigslist) to update the fabric. The fabric is so lovely but I'm still not sure it was the right choice for the chair. I've come to the conclusion that picking fabric is darn tricky. The nightstands are temporary stand-ins (the one on the left will go in the guest bedroom and the one on the right belongs in the living room) till I can find some vintage beauties on the cheap. The only cloud in my blue sky is the ugly carpet. Since the master bedroom was once an attic it never had hardwood floors and when the previous owner added the dormer addition, she chose the cheapest carpet ever. It's rough and pills and I'm always finding loose fibers all over the place. It's not in our budget at the moment, but I dream about the day when we can have gorgeous hardwood floors. Oh and I almost forgot- even though I love the look of them, after sleeping one night under them and fearing they would fall and gore me, the antlers have been moved elsewhere. Something more appropriate, like a dream catcher, will take their place.

  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex
    and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!
