I mentioned in my post yesterday that tomorrow, I'm having all four of my wisdom teeth removed (eek!). For the last couple of months, our bedroom has served as a dumping ground of sorts for many of our upcoming yard sale items and each time I have to go in there, I've just dreaded it. I've even frequently slept on the couch to avoid being in there, hehe. The room just wasn't very restful!
But knowing that I would need a place away from everything and everybody after my surgery, I kicked it into high gear this week and tried to create a quaint and peaceful space with a few things I already had on hand. As you can see, our bedroom is teeny-tiny and I'm really looking forward to really changing it in the future. I'm dying to paint the old pine furniture! There are no windows in our bedroom (we'll add them during the remodel), only a door leading to our deck. So to create the illusion of light and windows, I added mirrors and curtains on both sides of the bed and it's amazing how it makes the room seem bigger and less boxy - and more cozy! You can't tell from the photo, but our ceiling is really, really high and peaked, and there is a wooden beam in the center. It makes the room seem bigger than it is, as well.
So this is my "Little House on the Prairie" inspired room - my updated cottage take on it anyway:) The "bedskirt" is just a chenille blanket and the red mattelaise bed cover was a Goodwill find and fits the bed perfectly. On the left, you can see the side of our little armoire that hides the television. I took photos of the details of the room, but I couldn't find my tripod and the lighting is weird as you can tell, so the detailed photos were blurry. You can click these photos to enlarge them, though:) So there you have it - my little recovery nest!
Well, I'm off to enjoy some solid food while I can. Oddly enough, soup sounds good right now!
