Blog Catch Up: PART 7
Before Mary Ann was born, we decided to give our bedroom a much needed face lift! I was somewhat in a nesting mode, but Arthur and I had been talking for a very long time about working on our room.
The last time our bedroom was painted was when I was pregnant with Madison 14 years ago. Arthur put up chair rail, painted the top part of the room white and put up wall paper on the bottom half of the wall...14 years ago! The first 5 years this room was for our littles, the past 9 years it has been our bedroom...with no change other than bedding.
Our room is the smallest room in the house......
Most people wouldn't want the smallest room....
But we "love" this room and find it "very" comfy!!!!
Arthur got busy with paint, and then replaced our ceiling fan! Within a few days we had a nice new clean room to bring Baby home to.
I wish the ceiling fan showed better, it goes with our furniture so well. Our old ceiling fan was put up when we moved into our house almost 19 years ago and was white and looked more like a children's fan. We bought a goose comforter and caramel/khaki color duvet. At the fabric store I found some drapery fabric on the remnant table for $4, then sweet Rebekah made us a new valance all for less than $6.00!
The walls are painted a colonial blue, Arthur and I are enjoying the color and the change.
This chair is a wonderful spot to rock and nurse precious Mary Ann. We now have Mary Ann's crib in our room, and it sits right in front of our closet. If I had to sum up our room in one word it would be C-O-Z-Y!!!
