My Bedroom



Here is my newly updated bedroom. I love it! love it! love it! The furniture has a rustic look to it, yet it has a smooth finish. That was important to me since I have to dust it so much. In the warehouse this stuff didn't look so big, but when we got it home it was like holy smokes...IT'S HUGE! It made our room shrink down quite a bit, but that's okay. I'm still happy. I didn't take a picture of Marks office corner since it's still a mess. It's right next to the mini fridge by the window. I know what you're probably thinking..."she has pink walls" but I don't...honest! They just showed up like that in the pictures. It's really a color called Grand Teton that looks a lot like the red rock mountains in Sedona Arizona and closer to the color of this font, but not so orange. It's a Ralph Lauren paint that has sand in it for a different texture. (we did that along time ago, as well as the beadboard) The bedding feels so nice! It's a micro fiber set that I got at Mervyns on sale. I love getting things on sale! I know this is mean to say, but I'm glad the bed is taller now so the dogs can't jump on it anymore. I love my dogs, but that's one less place for hair to accumulate.
I have yet to start on the bathroom, but that is a goal this week. I just hate stripping wall paper. It's easy, yet very messy...wish me luck!

OH MY GOSH!! I can't belive how cozy and inviting that room looks. I could curl up on that bed and spend the weekend. It looks great I don't want to go back into my old room anymore :(
When you have kids you need a place to yourself and you sure have that now.

Thank you! Ya know what Chris...I did just that this past weekend. I spent 2 whole days in bed minus going to church on Sunday. It felt so nice and very relaxing...I'd like to do that more. It was a good thing!
