I feel like I say this every time I sit down to write a post lately but things have been a little crazy! Nothing I can’t handle but I do feel a little stretched these days.
You remember from my last post how my front porch was filled with furniture. Well, I did get the bed painted and I think it’s going to work in our bedroom, I just have to buy a new mattress. John is traveling for work right now so that purchase will have to wait until he gets back which means I won’t have pictures for you for a a couple of weeks.
The bed looks good-I used ASCP Old White–but now I need to change the whole bedroom! There were a lot of things I had been meaning to fix up for a while but as usual, had been putting off, but now that we have this new gigantic bed, it’s time to deal. Here’s a photo from an earlier post of our master:
This photo is about a year or so old–before I knew how to take, style, edit, and light photos. But it’s a pretty accurate representation of how our room looked a few days ago. This little four poster was my bed growing up. It’s a double. John is 6’2″ and I’m 5’10″. It was supposed to be temporary but 5 years later we were still sleeping in it. The new bed is a CA king (which I always thought was just bigger than a king but is slightly narrower and slightly longer) so our room is feeling a lot tighter with the new bed.
The Old White is pretty on the new bed but now the room has too much white in it. I either need to get darker curtains, paint the walls darker, or repaint the bed darker. I am truly struggling here with what to do! Lately I have been loving the look of dark rich walls and could see going in that direction but do I really want to paint that room right now? Then again, do I really want to repaint a bed I just painted? New curtains will help but I don’t think it will be enough. It’s always like this with me–I change one thing and it’s a domino effect.
So to distract my mind from swimming with this new dilemma, here are some pictures of really beautiful bathrooms from my Pinterest board:
I hope I helped distract you for a few minutes there–Thanks for stopping by!
