Way back when, I told you that I was buying shower curtains to use in my room and promised pics once the room was complete and happy. Well, I am finally getting around to it. Though I must admit, I still don’t think of this room as “complete”. Decorating is more of an ongoing process for me.
This is the view from the door. All neutral and happy yes? We have the Ikea Malm bedroom set that was our Christmas present in 2008 when we moved into the house. And we still love it! I’ll admit, I wasn’t sold on the pressed wood, particle board style furniture when we bought it because I wasn’t sure how well it would last. Let me tell you, it is still in excellent shape.
It has even withstood these two demolition masters jumping and wresting on it every day. Redding may look innocent, but don’t let him fool you for a second. He’s the ringleader. Why just the other day, he came tearing through the living room pushing a wooden cart with Wyatt perched precariously on top. And then crashed into a mountain of toys. He’s also taught Wyatt how to climb, and if Wyatt is having a hard time climbing somewhere, say, I dunno, The Couch, then Redding just grabs his hands and hoists him on up. Or hops down on the floor next to him and pushes Wyatt up by his rear. And then they somersault of the couch. Both intentionally, and unintentionally.
I used a roll of brocade home decor fabric given to me to make window sized curtain liners that I hung on tension rods to go behind my curtains. We have an East facing room with the East window being 60″ across. What the people were thinking when they designed certain things about my house, I have no Idea.
Over my dresser is going this sweet mirror that I found at Goodwill about a week ago. It’s being refinished right now. More to come on that later.
This is a little garage sale shelf that I painted black and then white with a layer of crackle medium in between. The doily is one my Great Grandma made for me.
I think my husbands side of the room was messy this day (we take turns on having the messy side, but usually it’s me) hence no photos. My mom was getting rid of these candle stick things at a garage sale we hosted the last month and I snagged them up. I painted them blue (they were like a dark walnut wood) and voila! That frame is where my Starbright mini quilt is going. With Christmas money this year, I bought us new sheets to replace the sadly torn one before, so I cut it up and crocheted it into that little white rug. I’ll probably add onto it as more sheets get upcyled. The box on the floor just behind it is what I use instead of a nightstand. It holds all my current books, magazines, lotion, glasses case, that sort of thing.
