This is our bedroom...still a work in progress but aren't all of us "decorating fanatics" always shopping, rearranging or otherwise "working" on rooms in our homes? We are always on the lookout for little trinkets to freshen up our spaces... much to our husband's annoyance. To a decorating fanatic ...a room is never DONE.
Oh there are a few things of this room that I am not fond of but I have to "make do" until the right item with the right price comes along! A few things in this room are castoffs from other rooms that my husband just doesn't see the logic in "it doesn't go".
To him a chair is a chair, a bed is a bed but a TV on the other hand is entirely different story. Thankfully we don't have a monster one in our "boudoir" . He does have his own space downstairs that I call the "Man Cave" with his lazyboy recliner that he ends up snoring in on Sunday afternoons.
The needlepoint chair & pictures above were a recent antiques faire find. I was THRILLED!
My darling Mother in-law ended up sewing the remaining four panels of draperies needed. I had only been able to accomplish two on my own (which took me days!) while she zipped out the remaining four panels in one day. (I got the job of hand sewing on the curtain rings which took me twice as long!) The headboard was a DIY project between my husband and I last winter in the garage. I am still begging the husband for crown molding but he won't settle for the fiberglass kind from the homecenter. No siree, he wants to put up real wood molding, problem is that we don't have the budget (oops! blame that on me!) nor the time to do that in the house. So nearly two years later of us building this home, I am still staring up at my "naked" ceilings!
But why is it that our "Boudoir's" are the last room to get attention? I stared at paper shades for a very long time before doing anything about it. Now when I wake up in the morning, I feel surrounded like I am in a cocoon and it's a very calming feeling provided that the kids aren't up first jumping up and down on the bed trying to wake us, which happens more often than not!
Just a few details....
Doesn't her expression just ooze patience with her 3 children climbing all over her? Either patience or defeat! :)
The cabinet was bought many years ago unfinished - I recently painted it this red color and penciled in a stencil before hand painting in the details with a few different colors. I didn't like the look of the stencil just dabbed on, when you do it by hand..well it just looks handpainted!
Next up...the bathroom!
