Musings of a Master Bedroom Makeover...

My bed isn't made yet, so I'm not gonna post a picture of my master bedroom right now.  Well, that and the laundry from yesterday is still folded in the basket instead of in all of our drawers.  And... all the flat surfaces seemed to be currently collecting junk...papers yet to be filed, books in the middle of being read, and stuff that I haven't put back on the walls in our bathroom since I have yet to clean the walls from stripping the wallpaper.  Work in semi-progress I guess....I say "semi" because I can't seem to convince myself to scrub the wallpaper glue off of the walls because it's just pure misery to do it.

I think I'm pretty good with color, design, etc in general.  But I tell you master bedroom has been my nemesis since we moved in almost 3 years ago.  It has 2 dormer windows and an angled ceiling on one side, a closet and a door on one wall, and a bathroom door on another.  The furniture is all nice but completely mismatched (I love eclectic, but somehow this has just moved beyond that to mismatched.)  I'm willing to paint anything, but for the life of me I can't seem to decide what I want to do in there!

I think I want to paint it grayish-bluish.  And maybe antique some furniture white.  Sometimes I think board and batten (since it's in again and I've and  always loved it.)  But then i think grasscloth but I can't afford that right now.  Sometimes I think whites and blacks and grays.  Sometimes I think lemongrass and aqua and white.  I love antiques old things that tell stories. I have this fab-o little sofa that is chocolate brown with a grayish-bluish little dot on it...but I tell you, I'm stuck!  I'll take pictures of everything today at naptime and post it all for you to see.  Don't have time right now though...

I don't know what I want...there's too much that I like to narrow it all down.  Indecision is my pet peeve and right now with this room, it is my middle name!

It's a little frustrating though...this decorator's block I have.  I can walk into other peoples' spaces and immediately have vision for them...amazing vision with easy ways to achieve it, but when it comes to my own house I OBSESS and I'm stuck!  The rooms I have done to perfect completion belong to my children.  

I can't seem to find what I did with a good picture of Tid Bit's Room, but below is Little Bit's nursery.  Probably my favorite room in our house.

Anywho... My master bedroom needs a makeover.  I'll post some current pictures later and get you guys to toss out some ideas.  Mostly I need a work crew to likely paint, stain, and transform furniture!!!  Wouldn't that be own work crew! LOL!  Wishful thinking! That, and some more nice days outside to do it!

OK. Off to be a good Mommy!  Watching a friend's little boy today while she has to head out of town for a funeral.  I think I'll do our usual Wolfram family endearment trick and and make some mid-morning cotton candy!

More pictures of my own anti-oasis to come!

Hmm - lemme see. I am partial to Benjamin Moore's plain old Pewter ;) (blueish gray) and antiqued furniture, but loving some stained wood in midcentury styles also. I think I would work off your sofa you already love and that great dresser that already look great together. New curtains so you can add texture and color that way? Hmm, need a new bed? Nope - yours is perfect. Color! Trade out some pieces like your tv stand for something downstairs like your great small buffet in the entryway - or wall mount it with a cool picture frame around it. Have miter saw, will travel.

my husband won't let me put curtains! LOL! There is only about 2 inches on either side of the windows anyways since they're in dormers....

And the great buffet in the entry that idea but it looks so awesome in the entry way....I'll have to think more on it! What else can I steal from other rooms! LOL
