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 what...my 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.
