I am sooooo not even close to being done with this room, but I am LOVING it already! The white paint I so hastily chose, even though I knew better, turned out to be more of a blue-ish white. I was freaking out at first, but now I really like it. I think the stark white would have been too.....well, stark. I want to add in some soft blue accessories, maybe a blanket to throw at then end of the bed and some accent pillows. And please, please, please don't judge me on that hideous bedskirt that doesn't match! My new black one has been ordered and is on it's way...thank goodness. And hello.....I thought the zebra rug was fabulous in my living room??? I love it so much more in here! And I never would have even tried it if it hadn't been for my anal retentive self that was having a panic attack over some kid at the Halloween party accidentally spilling on it. Right before the guests arrived, I rolled it up and moved it in here and put my very forgiving shag rug back in the living room. It was love at first sight...it's not going anywhere!
The bamboo shade really doesn't go, but I'm pretending it does for now. It camoflauges a really fugly 1970's window and also acts as a headboard...until I can make an upholstered one. Sometimes you just gotta work with what ya got! I hung the black feather wreath in the center to bring in a bit more black and try to take away from the brown shade. It'll do for now.
This $2 yard sale chandelier candle thingy hangs right above my desk. I have had this beauty in a closet just waiting for the perfect spot...and this is it. Pictures of the desk will have to be seen at a later date...work in progress.
This is the wall that I'm planning on hanging some beautiful black and white plates on, as well as my kid's silhouettes. Once again...work in progress.
The bathroom area still needs a light and mirror hung, and a vanity skirt. The back wall is primed and painted, but the rest is only cut in. It's a slow process, but it is getting done. You know...I have this other full time gig called wife and mother that takes up 99% of my day. So all of this extra stuff comes last...like midnight when everyone's in bed! A few more late nights and I think we'll be in the home stretch.
