This weekend, I am tackling our basement bedroom.
You guys have never really seen it since our basement renovation. It’s not really got much to see right now.
It’s painted Olympic’s Navajo White.
And I think the last time you saw it, it was sorta a little something like this:
But when I saw these photos on CountryLiving.com, I felt so inspired that I knew it was time to tackle this unused space.
And you know that recently I picked up some stuff at Goodwill to give it a fun blue & cream & white nautical theme. Like this lamp:
And this little creamer:
And this little wooden fish:
And I am thinking that our wooden ship’s wheel from the office will look nicely down there as well as some of that seaside art:
And I ordered (and finally got in the mail) a fabulous new striped Pottery Barn duvet cover & shams from ebay:
And I officially decided that I want to make a covered headboard.
I feel ready.
Raring to go.
Let’s all say a prayer about this shall we? I feel the pressure of this baby (no pun intended). And the basement would be the perfect place to have available just in case we have houseguests coming to see the new little bambino. If I can get this done, I think that I would feel better about NOT having a nursery started. Doh!
Anyway…so let’s talk about lighter stuff. How bout them shams? Sweet, huh? And those inspirational photos…are you fainting over that slipcovered sofa like I am? Or maybe it’s the linen pillow in that second photo? Sa-wooon! Or maybe you are just dying to tell me what you are tackling this coming weekend? Any big plans? Anyone decorating? Anyone just taking a break from decorating? Anyone gonna let me live vicariously through them as they do something fun? Spill it!
