Whew! What a week. I've been outside almost all day every day with the babe enjoying the summer weather and I've barely had a chance to even glance at my blog roll. So in lieu of a Friday Favorites post I thought I'd share some current photos of the master bedroom with you.
It's a definite work in progress - I'm think of painting the room white as it's a pretty small space and I think it would help to make it feel bigger (and brighter). We're definitely getting rid of the headboard - I'm hoping to make a DIY upholstered one before we start adding to our family. I HATED nursing with this headboard - soooo uncomfortable. It was a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law and I so appreciated all of the furniture she gave to us (we had NOTHING when we moved in), but I think six years is enough and it's time to move on to something a little more comfortable (and taller).
these. But I think it's not to be - at least not in this space! The only light fixture in the room is a very very sad sconce is left over from the previous owner. I can't believe we've lived this long this way but like I said we kind of put this room on the back burner while we worked on the rest of the house.
I'm not sure if I want to hang art on either side of the bed or go for plug-in sconces above the nightstands. Opinions?
As far as the opposite side of the room is concerned, it needs a lot of work as well. The odd radiator cover on the right hand side of the room will go, along with the radiator inside of it. We've replaced it with a smaller more compact radiator and this one has just been sitting there until we got around to working on this space. The mirrored wall and upper cabinet will probably go as well. The barn doors I'm up in the air about. What do you think of them? Like or loathe? I've lived with them for so long now that I'm indecisive.
We've also already purchased wood flooring for this room which I'm currently getting quotes on having it installed. The Hubster installed the flooring throughout the rest of the house, but has since hurt his back so I don't a DIY an option this time.
So that's pretty much it. I'd love to here your suggestions - it's a small space and I'd really like to make it more comfortable!
