The Master

I have been married for over 7 years and in all my decorating endevors I have never decorated our master bedroom. Sure I have hung a few pictures and made a duvet cover but our bedroom has always been the room that just was. No attention. We got a hand me down matress with a metal frame. We have never bought a bed, like a real bed, because we want a bigger matress for my super tall husband but those things are way too much money for us right now. Sometimes we had a crib in there, sometimes a desk, sometimes both.

But now, now we have a room to ourselves and I finally have an idea of what I want our room to look like. Of course that is easier planned than done. Walls need painted, curtains need to be made, a headboard is wanted, but nothing expensive right?, cause we still don't have the right size mattress we want eventually. Oh, and bedside tables, those are a definate. Whatever piece of furniture doesn't have a home gets stuck by our bed. Our bedroom has always been a mismatched mess. Not in a good way.

In order to paint, I need a day with no kids, (HA!), for the bed fiasco, I need a good thrift store find(I think I found my headboard today!) and for a matching duvet I need to order some dye from Dharma to get the right shade. Oh, and since I am too picky for my own good for curtain fabric, I have an idea up my sleeve to personalize them all romantical like.

But for the little nook in the corner of my room I found the just right table and chair to make a little reading nook. And although the chair has been 3/4 of the way done for a couple weeks now, the table is finished!



Wow! That was a lot of talking for just 2 pictures. Sorry they weren't more impressive. But I do love the color! And the table was $4! Score!

I love that table! And the new color looks awesome. Our bedroom could use a little love too so I can't wait to see your finished project!

I seriously envy your talent. I have no idea how you get things like this done with the kids at home. I am still trying to figure out how to vacuum!
