Happy Friday Y’all! I hope everyone has been enjoying their last days of summer. I sure am looking forward to Fall, as it’s my favorite season of all time. I’m definitely looking forward to cooler temps! I finally got around to doing this post and after sitting down to look at the pics, I actually feel like I’ve been making progress around here. Woot!
Anywho, last week I stated that I’d share updates to the master bedroom this week. I’d like to state that I definitely LOVE when people post some dramatic before and after pics where the room is all finished. However, if I did that, it would probably be years before I’d post anything. I just can’t seem to work on one room at a time. Maybe it’ll be better when I’m not interrupted every two seconds by the munchkins :) Anyway, on to some pics :)
This is the Master Bedroom “before” (circa January 2014…WOW, it was THAT long ago?!). You can see that post (here).
Look at how little my baby was. I remember being able to put him on the bed and he wouldn’t go anywhere. Awe, memories.
Nope, these still aren’t reupholstered. Are you shocked? You shouldn’t be ;)
And here we have the “after”. Those pics above the bed will never be straight. I have 2
monkeys children who like to jump on the bed and touch those while I’m not looking. Maybe I should have taken the time to straighten them before taking pics?
I kind of want to paint the bookshelf a “fun” color. Thoughts? I’m open to suggestions :)
The giant mirror will be going back on top of the dresser, but I was in the middle of painting it when these pics were taken. It has since been finished and is back in place. Mirrors definitely add so much to a room!
So, there ya have it. See? Getting there! My next steps for this room is to paint all of the furniture. The hubby thinks I’m nuts and I think he’s a little hesitant with me doing it. This is our first “real” furniture that we bought when we got married and it wasn’t cheap. What can I say? We both had jobs and no kids, so we bought it new. It’s what we thought we were supposed to do. If I were to do it over again, I would buy from a thrift store. It’s the only way to go (for us anyway). Especially since I like to re-purpose old stuff. The set includes an over-sized bedroom set (dresser, night stand and bed) that is just too dark for my taste anymore. Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with the furniture and I still like it, but I want it lighter and brighter. AND painting is so much cheaper than buying something else.
Also, I’ve increased the size of the photos. Yay or nay?
