It's been a while since I've given you an update on our bedroom redo. In case you are curious, click here for all of my prior posts on our bedroom.
Last time I mentioned the bedroom, I was whining about sewing the curtains. I finally finished sewing them and I have so say I am not totally thrilled.
Meh. They block the light enough that we can sleep in on Saturdays, they are thick enough to contain the heat that seems to be pouring in from the windows, and I love the length of them. I am not loving the color, so we are going to live with them until I work up the courage to sew 9 more yards of fabric.
I think if I do decide to tackle another set of curtains, I am going to go the peach route for color. We'll see. If I know myself at all, and I think I do, I'm not going to be making new curtains.
I also mentioned a Craigslist headboard I found for only $10.
I love it. It has 2 areas where the wood is messed up. Bad enough that it needs filled and refinished, but I don't know how to do that. Our pillows cover the messed up spots so until I work out how to fix it this is how it will stay. I've considered painting it but it so closely matches the nightstands that I am hesitant. Decisions, decisions.
I tried to get a shot of the whole room so you can see what we are working with. (a gigantic tv. ahem.) The white fabric thing on the left is Anderson's closet. That little alcove with the desk in it is where my closet is. I love having a desk in there, but it is freakishly hot in the summer because it is all windows, so it's not getting much use right now.
I still have quite a few things I'd like to do in here like put art up in the walls, find some stylish storage boxes for on top of Anderson's closet, get a new desk chair and lamp, and a few other odds and ends that I can't settle on. It takes time to find just the right thing (like my nightstands and headboard) so I'm not in a hurry. These things take time.
