So please disregard the one tall yellowish white lingerie chest that is my next project. Disregard all the cords that belong to smart phones, Kindles, etc. Disregard the fact that we have two computers as part of our master bedroom set up because we don't have a dedicated office room in our house. We have 3 guest bedrooms because we like to have guests. Also, disregard the television, tissue boxes and whatever else you see that ruins the illusion of perfection and just focus on the fact that all in all this is a pretty nice live-able master bedroom.
Here's the big 'ole bed I bought on craigslist that I need a step stool to climb in and out of - I still love it. Beside it is the beside chest I chalked painted for my SuperDave's side of the bed. We even managed to get some stuff back on the walls with only one incident. It involved a picture falling from the wall, patching the resin frame with plaster of Paris and touching it up with craft paint - oh, yes I did!
My little office area in the corner with a few more of the freshly painted NEW old pieces picked up second hand over the past many months. And finally - there's a good shot of the new wood floor.
Here's a view with the still to be painted lingerie chest. When it's done this is going to look super and the tall black chest beside the TV is going to make the TV fade into the background - oh, yes it is! This picture also has a pretty good shot of the rug we chose for this room and I really LOVE this rug.
I love it so much I got a matelasse coverlet and some shams (on clearance finally!) to bring my colors all together. And there of course, is Chewie, the cat who insists on being in most of my photos.
I love this picture because it shows a LOT of the floor. It gives you a real feel for the high ceiling and the tropical fan that keeps as cool as we sleep in our lovely four poster pineapple bed. The room started our to be French but ended up being what I refer to as French West Indies - an eclectic combination of French and Caribbean because this girl's heart is always leaning toward the beach. (if only I had the view!)
I'll throw in one more shot in case you haven't had your fill of looking - if you have just scroll on through!
I mentioned we have TWO computers/desks in our room and here's the other one. This is where the man of the house has his office space. This large closet opens from our bedroom to an area UNDER the stairs. It's an L shaped closet and the ceiling gets very low when it turns because it's under the landing. This space isn't neat as a pin - it's a work space, but that's okay because it has doors that close up to hide it all. And there's the other kitty, I don't think he was trying to get in the picture, he was just following me around - most likely crying for food or a lap.
I went looking for a before picture. What I found was that I was very careful NOT to get the old furniture in the picture. Here's a picture from a few years back before I started the craigslist furniture search and sold our old furniture and bedding.
Much Love & Laughter,
