Swap & Spray
Back to the bedroom. This time, it’s all about the bed…remember the bed (and furniture) that we had in there?
It was just dandy…for a bigger room. Not this one. So we sold it. And the lamps too.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. First we switched out the bedding:
Here it was after a quick paint job & some chunkilious crown molding:
Now that we are not ahead of ourselves…rather on top of ourselves (?)….we decided to move in the master bedroom bed, a chocolate brown leather queen sized bed perfect for the neutral hued room & the chocolate & white bedding. (you caught a glimpse of that way back in the messy house tour, remember?) Here is how it use to look in the master bedroom:
(Just pretend you don’t see that pack n’ play…mmkaythanks?)
I think it looks much better in this room. Plus, we got the itch to get a king bed in our room. And when you get an itch, you better scratch it.
We also took a couple old side table lamps that had been collecting bucketloads of dust in our basement and spraypainted them for a splash of saturated color.
I think it goes perfectly for our idea of splashes of red that I talked about oh-so-long ago. Don’t you? (here is the original thought-train:)
So how do you like our swap? Was it for the better? I love the leather with the Hotel style bedding, don’t you? And those red lamps are super yummy. I’m really getting bold with color these days…yes, red lamps make me ‘bold with color’….and now if only I could find the perfect night stands/side tables….craigslist here I come.
