I’m sure some of you know by now that nothing in OUR house is ever truly finished. There is always some finessing and tweaking going on. Don’t get me wrong, we have good friends who have kept things the same for years, so I get that concept too. But Dean and I both grew up in houses with Moms who regularly rearranged the furniture while we were at school. It seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree - times two – at our place!
When Kelly said that Steven and Chris would like our Master Bedroom to be one of the featured spaces in our little video, I initially panicked: “but it’s not done”, “there are no baseboards”, “we haven’t even painted the old ceiling” were just a few of the thoughts I had in about two seconds. We had done A LOT already, like the headboard, the blanket box turned filing cabinet, the pb knockoff numbers canvas , the West Elm Pintuck Duvet Cover and the Royal Design Studio stencilled wall. But was it ready for TV? Um no! Thankfully after some more hard work – have I mentioned I LOVE Dean? – the room is looking pretty cozy these days!
We even finally got one of Dean’s very first DIY projects, the stepback cupboard, all finished – complete with the simply beautiful clay knobs we ordered awhile back from Vintage Skye. In case you’re wondering it functions as our linen cupboard (you know because our actual linen cupboard is full of tools and paint supplies!). It also houses a small flat screen TV.
We still have more to do, like hang a thrifted chandelier that’s currently chillin’ out in the shed. We also need to put down those baseboards - thanks to Denise’s awesome camera work none of the missing baseboards showed up in the video. I also have in my mind a gorgeous skirted slipcovered wingchair sitting in the corner between the window and the stepback cupboard. I just have to get around to buying one on kijiji and making a slipcover for it.
But for right now, I’m thankful that the room is cozy and full of pattern and loads of texture. Goodness knows I spent enough time in there last week when I had bronchitis.
What do you all think? What is your vision of a master bedroom? Is it cozy and relaxed? Or are you more of a glamour girl (or guy)?
(P.S. I will update this post a little later with a full resource list, k?)
