I've been wanting to rearrange our bedroom for quite some time. We were poorly using the space we had (please pay no attention to the nasty mess...just bein' authentic!):
(This photo was taken from the door):
Side note by me: with all this rearranging, I've discovered something (no, no, no...not the dust bunnies...but, yikes!! Holy smokes there were a lot of them!!)...homes built in the '70's made bedrooms for queen beds...not king. But, I'm not givin' our bed up for nothin'!
Our room is cah-ramped!! And...I'm embarrassed! Look at that nasty bedroom furniture! One dresser we bought when we were newly married, just to "get us through", until we could get something new.
Yeah. Ah...that was nine years ago! Well, almost!
Our other dresser? A gift.
When I was 15.
The sad thing? That dresser is now older than I was when I got it.
Excuse me while I go cry in my coffee...when did I get so old?!!!
Sheesh, we are professional, hard working adults! We deserve better than a cheap dresser and an "ancient" dresser!
So, here's the final arrangement:
(From the door):
Whaddya think? (Ahem...about the arrangement...please, don't judge me on our furniture! I wish I knew Photoshop better...coulda shined 'em up a bit...or, heck, just cropped 'em out!)
Did we make a good decision, switching up the bed?
I'll be sure to post more photos when our new furniture arrives (yes...I am going out to buy new furniture!)...along with the new paint job and removal of the weird border thing goin' on!
Any suggestions for wall colors? Our spread is tannish/taupey and cream. The curtains...original with the house (i.e I could take 'em or leave 'em)...and let's not mention the carpet. Not in the budget! ;)
Another side note by me...we are thinking of going Amish.
Wait!!! Wait...that came out all wrong! Our furniture! We are thinking of going the Amish route for our furniture!! Any experience with that?
