Bedroom face lift....

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.



BEFORE:


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.




AFTER:


TA-DA....
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!!!

I love the "cozi-ness" of your room - Especially with that little sweetie snoring away. Looks great!

Oh it looks great. We have spent the afternoon painting our hall (it was the original real wood panelling). The bedrooms are the next project and then we are doing a bunch of room moving. Jeremy and I are taking the smallest room, and I do mean small. Our king bed takes up the whole room, seriously. All the girls (including Jeremy's older girls, excluding the new baby girl) are taking the biggest room, the 2 boys the next size room, and then us in the smallest room. : )

It is very small but so cozy. We have the middle sized room. Amanda has the large one. Daniel has one of the smaller rooms. Cozy is my favorite word in my house! Love it!!!

The size of the room does not matter as long as you like it! What a sweet husband you have to do all that painting. My husband does the painting in our home, too.
I love Mary Ann's pretty crocheted blanket. And I like your room re-do, too!

If my room were blue we would have the exact same room :-)

Our room is quite cozy too and we don't even have our Rosie's crib in it yet, only her bassinet.

Love the colonial blue....we love blue's!
