But the most important thing... I finally got the last corner in my bedroom painted! As you may remember, I began painting this room in January. I usually do a room in a day but this time I just couldn't seem to get motivated. Here is a little secret, the master bedroom is the least decorated room in the house. Not forgotten, just uninspired and since it is a private space, the last to be thought of. I didn't have closet doors up for, well, I wont tell you how many years. We finally got some doors on the closet last week and I feel so much better about the room. No matter what I did before the gaping hole of messy clothes drew my eye and I lost all interest in making things better. The closet stopped me in my tracks. Now I can move on. So here you have it. A blank slate. I haven't put the pictures back on the walls, except for the one above the bed, and that is temporary. This is where the computer is and I think the fact that this is not just a bedroom but a work area has also contributed to the problem.
So the whole place needs an overhaul. Now here's the rub, I have two kids in college now and my dear husband is still partially laid off in this crummy Michigan economy. No decorating budget. Zip, nada, zero. So whatever I do in here is going to be a combination of working with what I already have stashed around the house and basement, or what I can pick up for cheap or free. Am I daunted? No. I am so used to turning a sows ear into a silk purse, I know I can do it. It may take some time but I know from seeing your own projects that it can be done. So keep an eye open, I'll share what happens to this bare bones room as I get things changed around.
I can't decide whether to paint the headboard or if I like the contrast of the dark wood and white wall. The lamp has GOT to go, yech. The art will change.....stay tuned. I want this room to look like a B&B when I'm done:>)
