This is what our bedroom looks like after I decided, on Sunday afternoon, that it was time to move our bed onto a different wall. When we first moved into our apartment, we thought it would be nice to put the bed on the window wall. What I didn’t realize was that (a) the bed would partially block the window and (b) this room is really really cold in the Winter!
Here’s what it looked like before:
I think the room makes much more sense now! Although it felt a little weird sleeping the “wrong way” in the room last night. Of course, this room is far from complete. I absolutely love the bed & our extra dining room chair has finally found a good spot in the corner under the window! (Don’t mind little Ms. Photo-bomber).
There are two obvious areas where things can improve. The first is the dresser / mirror area across from the door. The second (as you’ve heard only about a million times) are the nightstands’ color.
When it comes to the dresser area, I think the whole thing looks to yellow. So (1) would be to change up the mirror frame. It looks good from afar, but up close you notice the need for some TLC. (2) I should find some nicer storage boxes for my “lotions and potions” and jewelry. (3) I also think the dresser could do with a coat of paint. It’s actual wood (although via Ikea) but has taken on a yellow hue over time. I’m thinking white… or perhaps a shade brighter than whatever goes on the nightstands…. (4) Last but not least, I still owe Penelope a crate cover. I think a fun printed cover that matches the room will make the crate less of an eyesore.
The nightstands also need to be updated. As I mentioned before, I LOVE our bed. I need to do something to tie the nightstands in with the bed a bit better. I’ve contemplated a whole host of different colors. I think a solid color (maybe something more muted than whats on the drawers now) would work well. Any thoughts?
Here’s one last look. I still need to sort out / re-arrange the art. I feel like I gained an extra wall to decorate now that we moved the bed! (Can you tell I love rearranging things?)
What did you do this weekend?
