I’m sure everyone has been waiting with baited breath for an update on my master bedroom (yes I am being sarcastic). Chris got the walls painted Billowy Clouds and we have someone coming to measure the floors today for Pergo. Yes I am caving on the hard wood. I just can’t rationalize $2000 for one room. I know Bamboo is more green, but it is also much more prone to things like scratches from dog nails (remember I have one that is 90 pounds and another that is 70 and growing), kids tear them up more easily (I might surprise you and breed one day you never know), and other random bumps and scrapes. If this was my “forever house” I would fork over the money but for my starter home it is just not worth it to me. So anyway we are days away from wood flooring and paint is on the walls!
I went to Ikea and bought two matching pink bookshelves to put on either side of the bed to get a similar effect to this bedroom.
I also got matching pink dressers to put on the opposite wall to not only hold my clothing, but also to put my TV on. A girl has to have her Law and Order in bed.
I’m still not sure about what I am going to do for a headboard or in the space over the bed and between the shelves. I’m thinking of framing either my crazy quilt or making something with black and white polka dotted fabric.
Speaking of the quilt after all of this, I know longer think I am going to use the original window treatment I had in the room and was basing everything around. I think I might recover the window treatment with my new crazy quilt and give the fabric to my mother to make purses and pillows out of.
So there we are. I have already started planning out what we are going to do for the second spare bedroom as well and have started looking for just the right shade of aqua low VOC paint.
