Our bedroom is the only space in the house we haven't decorated. (And by "we" I mean "me.") It's basically the room where furniture goes to die. We have Hubsey's old bed, my childhood dresser and one matching nightstand, a different nightstand from a flea market, and two massive bookshelves we don't have space for anywhere else.
I'm not even going to show you a picture, that's now bad it is. We've just left it alone because so few people ever see it, and we wanted to get the main living areas done first. But now that everything else is lookin' sweet, our bedroom seems extra sad.
Hubsey hasn't seen this yet, but here's what I want to do with the space:
You guys know I love me some IKEA, so it shouldn't surprise anybody that four of these items are from the blue and yellow palace. The graphic duvet cover is $39.99, the gray-washed Hemnes dresser (similar to the one in my studio) is $299, the coordinating nightstand is $59, and the cool glass lamp is $59.99. The crazy affordable colorful prints, $15 each, are from Etsy, as is the Dwell Studio pillow for $40. Add in a gallon of paint for $25-ish, and we'd only be spending about $550 if we bought every single thing here.
Of course, I like to DIY things so maybe some of this will change as we go. And there's also the issue of my snail paced decorating strategy, so it might be unrealistic to expect finished pictures anytime before Christmas. Thank you for your patience.
So what about you? Anybody else bitten by the decorating bug? What room do you want to change?
P.S. Thanks for all of your comments and emails about yesterday's post. You guys are the best.
