so as promised, i picked up my dirty laundry and made the bed. all so that you can see how our romantical natural heaven (aka our bedroom) is shaping up. here’s a few pics and then we can chat about it.
so that’s the room thus far. whadda ya think? i am in love with how the headboard turned out. i’ll tell you how i did that later because i’m late for work and still have to shower. the hutch is fun too. tho i don’t love the bright white so i’m going to figure out a way to dull it down. by the way – that is like a grey suedeish fabric covering the door panels (not a chalkboard! as some have thought….). let’s see. i also love my pebble rug from west elm. super soft and it was cheap too. the bedding is also from there (their parachute collection). not as cheap, but exactly what i was hoping for in that room. my little window frame is a one of a kind, ghost town special. so i guess it’s technically stolen. don’t call the police. or do, but vic will protect us.
who is vic you asked? he’s our neighbor. we hung out with him on saturday night and to say he is a character would be the understatement of the year. so that will have to be a blog post in an of itself.
back to the room. tho now i’d rather talk about vic….
i still have some plans for it. we need another dresser for the back wall (where oscar bear’s bed is right now). i want a super natural looking dresser most that’s short and fat. and then i think i want to do a cluster of vintage mirrors above it. i also want to get another rug for in front of that dresser (probably the same exact one that is in there already). i also want to do some sort of bench (worn leather would be nice, but doubt that will happen) at the end of the bed. and some long bright white flowy linen curtains. oh! and the headboard is missing it’s doorknob. i want it to be obvious that is a door, but that door came with a crappy brass handle unlike the cool (tho not well functioning) original door knobs on all the other doors in the house. oh and new nightstands are in order. i want non matching ones. i’m thinking a glass night stand for me and i really want a tree stump night stand for mr. hutch, but maybe just some old crates stacked or something?
ok. excuse the verbal diarrhea this morning, told ADD, and impressive use of the run-on-sentence. i’ve had a lot of coffee and it’s still early. and i’m late for work and still have to shower remember?
tell me what you think!? does it scream romantical natural heaven??
*** i just reread that and i sound like i’m on crack. i’m not i promise. happy monday!
