I am embarking on another home improvement project and I need your help/opinions/expertise!! We are redoing our bedroom!! WOOHOO!! YAY!! I can hardly stand the excitement! AND we are actually going to buy bedroom furniture! EEEEEK! Chad and I have been married for ten years and we have never owned a bedroom set or even a bed. We have a mattress and boxspring on the floor. Seriously, it is like we are college students. *Nothing against college students or their furniture. Geesh. I am really racking up the love today.* We have one hand me down dresser from when I was a kid and another dresser that my dad found at Goodwill or something. Chad uses a white MDF cube shelf thing for a nightstand and I use Madeline's old white mini bookcase on my side of the bed. That is it. Nothing cute...just functional. Blah blah blah. I have always disliked our bedroom. It has never been a den of peace. It has always been a dumping ground for clothes and books. NOT anymore, baby!! We are going to do it up right!!
We found a bedroom set that we love at Homemakers. It has clean lines, dark wood, and brushed nickel drawer pulls. Contemporary but not modern. It is beautiful. Plus the base of the bed has extra storage! Added bonus! This is not the exact bed but pretty close.
The previous owner put up a chair rail in the bedroom. They used some crazy textured paint on the bottom. It is almost like a sandy texture and then the top is smooth. Very odd. But then again they messed up a lot of things in this house that we are having to fix. Anyway, I would love to remove the chair rail but it would be crazy trying to get rid of that sandy texture stuff and I am not sure how it could even be done. So the chair rail stays. Poop. But we are going to paint the bedroom....I think. Right now it is a mossy green on bottom and white on the top. We definitely need to paint the top but we might keep the bottom color as is. I like the color. Chad likes the color. If I can find new bedding that works with it then bonus.
Speaking of bedding....we were thinking of doing a very neutral quilt and then spice it up with some fun pillows. I have been looking and there are so many fun and colorful quilts/duvet covers out there that I am rethinking that strategy. It is TOO much fun looking!! What would you do?
