I am so thrilled, last night hubby brought the case of the bookshelves he is making for our bedroom and sat it in place. It still needs, a drawer, crown molding and shelves, but I am able to see how it is going to look. I love it! I started painting the bedroom in January and ran out of steam. It was brown (you can still see above the window where I haven't painted!) a color my dear husband chose. When it was first painted I liked it, but I have very seldom met a fresh paint job that I didn't like. But, as you may have noticed, I am not an earth tone kind of girl. I could just never bring myself to invest in anything to go with that brown. As a result, our bedroom has never really been decorated in a way that makes either of us happy. There are actually two big windows like the one you see, and they face south, facing the garden, and back lawn. A beautiful view, and this is where the computer and desk are. My sweetheart is making matching bookshelves for either side of the window and then a simple desk to go between them. It will all be white so I can add whatever color my little heart fancies. Now if I can just decide on an accent color or two! I will be finishing the painting some time this month (I have to get it done before my daughters graduation open house!, not that I'm giving bedroom tours, but you know, you want the house to be great) So I will be sharing my progress over the next few months. It will be a long process no doubt, but I know I will be happy to work on it now. Yay!
