I’ve been continuing to work, little by little, on the master bedroom and I think it’s about time for a little update, don’t you? To get caught up, you can see where we started here, and then see more about what I did with the closet doors here.
There, you’re caught up!
So here’s where we’re at now:
All the walls are now light and bright, except for that fun brick wall that we exposed last year.
Yup, that’s a sign leftover from Christmas still up there. Still haven’t been able to fight my way into the garage to find a crow bar to take it down. It’s really stuck on there.
It’s such a blank canvas! All that empty space to work with is making me nervous, but I’m slowly gathering my thoughts about how I want it to feel in here.
Most of the furniture (except for that exercise bike!) will be staying for now, but we’ll be adding some curtains, a rug, new bedding, a new light fixture, and some other fun things to make it feel extra comfortable for the next little while until we’re ready to start tearing down (more) walls.
In the future, we’re going to do some built-in storage on this wall with some open shelving exposing the brick, but for now just some trim around rough edges of the door way will do the trick.
I started gathering a few supplies recently and I’m pretty excited about where this is going.
I have a few different fabrics that I’m considering too for pillows and stuff like that. I don’t know anything for sure though yet. I feel like every time I add something or change something, the whole direction and mood of the room changes and then I have to rethink everything. Anyone else ever get that?
The only thing I know for sure is that no matter what I do, It had better look good with Chuck laying on it!
So that’s where we’re at! Kennedy’s away at camp this week so I’m excited to maybe be able to get a few more things done in here! I’ll keep ya posted.
