Until about a week ago my Master Bedroom Chevron Curtains from Hobby Lobby was totally rocked my world! And then I had the thought to call the best hairdresser I’ve ever had – went to her from high school until I had baby #2. I hadn’t gelled with anyone here yet and her shop is much closer to my new house. Since we set the appointment, I’ve been obsessively looking forward to Thursday (today)!!! Bring back my natural baby blonde hair sweet friend!!! And as if that isn’t enough to make a day perfect, I’m having lunch with my mom at my favorite downtown restaurant — home of the best chocolate pie and then stopping by IKEA to pick up a few things. Don’t pinch me, if this is a dream I want more time to enjoy it!
Do you see a difference in the above pic compared to the pic from my last room update – here!?! Besides the minor detail that both drapes are now at an appropriate height now!?! I’ll let you stew on that for a second — tell me in the comments if you figured it out right away (be honest).
But first, check out my newest bedroom addition! My NEW Handmade Vintage Turkish Kilm Pillow from Turkish Craft Arts! LOVE!!! I need to add some fun new Euro cases and lots of accessories in here, but I love the endless options with these accent pillows — touch of unexpected!
Spoiler alert – In the picture above where the armoire is between the two windows I used to have my wide dresser. And where these two chairs sit used to be the armoire. Carpet indents to prove it. The wide dresser is no longer in my master bedroom.
In our two story, the master bedroom was HUGE so I bought way too much matchy furniture (although I love it all). At our rancher, our master bedroom was itty bitty so the armoire ended up in the formal living room. At this house, our master bedroom is large, but when all the matchy furniture was dumped into the room I was a little bummed because it seemed to swallow the room a little too much.
By moving the dresser out and placing the armoire between the two windows I feel free to dream about this space again – I’m not so locked in!
Where did the wide dresser end up!?! Stud told me the other day that our stockpile for house updates was dwindling and while I could purchase the $3000 beautiful hutch for the wall in my family room, it would delay us from making kitchen updates even further. Walking through my empty house (my kids are back in school now after a nice long Christmas break), I started searching for options! This is what my sweet hubby found when he came home from work.
Moving this dresser on our wooden floors was easy because each leg has felt and the drawers were completely empty – remember yesterday I told you we don’t use our bedroom furniture because we like keeping our clothes in the closet better – I wasn’t kidding. More house updates still to come, right now I’m wanting to get everything placed for optimum usage and then I’ll start layering!
