You remember this post, right? I wanted to bring you current on what it looks like now. The
most popular advice was to add yellow, mustardy yellow. I think that's great
advice and so fitting with the blue hues I had in there but I decided to go
my own way, sorry!
It's really important for me to feel that this room is simple and tranquil,
I spend so much time in here with Israel, getting dressed, folding laundry
not to mention sleeping. Ideally, I want our room to be low maintenance and
simple but not look unfinished. Well, that's the goal anyway.
I removed our headboard, and while my husband had a really hard time supporting
the idea at first, he and I love it so much more now! I also added some black
and gray-ish pillow cases, which were just sitting in my closet unused. I also
changed the butterfly chair cover to black and removed the huge, admittedly ugly,
mirror that used to be above our dresser and replaced it with a small painting.
I also moved my Mother's Day gift from Israel to my bedside, it's his hand print!
A few minor changes but I'm much happier with it. I know that our bed frame needs
repainting, if not replaced altogether and we are really in need of some sort of
graphic rug, maybe on husband's side of the bed? Oh, I almost forgot, I also found
this cute little footstool for $2 at a roadside sale, and did a sloppy recovering
job. I think I'd like to later recover it in some sort of wool, we'll see.
I also want to repaint the front of the dresser, that strange funky floral thing
is really bothering me now and I'm wondering if it would be too big of a task to
try to restore it to the original stain?! I'm looking for some sort of pendant lamp
to hang above the butterfly chair too, any ideas there?
So...how do you all feel about a little red, with an itty bit of yellow? You did
see I added the yellow Craspedia, right?
Yes, I know the photos are terrible but I'm getting a new camera soon so just bare
with a little longer!
