"MY BEDROOM NEEDS SOME DECORATING HELP"!!!
I can't believe I am doing this.. but, I am desperate.. You know, we have gotten
into the trap of leaving our bedroom to be decorated to the last.. It is literally an eye sore.. I really love to decorate but, I am in a decorating Funk..
The room has looked like this over a year and a half.. I took all the cottage cheese
off the ceilings.. Oh, you don't know about that stuff.. It was horrible work. I really don't have a desire to do anymore ceilings for a while..
I painted the walls green. The doors, baseboard will be off white..
The room is 200 square feet or so.. not very big.. Also, the bathroom vanity and sink is in the room. small door with a toliet and shower.
THIS IS THE DEAL...
1. I only want 2 pieces of furniture in the room.
a. Bed and headboard
b. Armoire (to put socks, t-shirts, etc.)
2. I don't want to spend a lot.. I change my mind about things so much it isn't worth it to spend a lot..
3. I love Yard sales, thrift stores, etc.. I am all about reuse, recycle.
WHAT IS MY STYLE?
I loved Paris when I was there.. I love French country, Romantic, a little Gothic.
(I know weird huh!)
WHAT IS ALREADY IN THE ROOM?
BED (needs a headboard)
SCONCES ABOVE BED
1 WINDOW IN ROOM AND 1 SLIDING GLASS DOOR THAT GOES OUT TO THE POOL.
WHAT I WANT TO ADD IN THE ROOM?
I have lots of pictures of Jesus that I love. I would like to incorporate them in
my room on one of the walls with family pictures etc..
I have a beautiful old Lamp given by my husband's grandma. It is French with 2 lovers on it. (you know what I mean!)
I have a beautiful old Tapestry given by my Mother-in-law that is also french.
I have scoured through many magazines.. I own a library full..
For years I have cut out pictures in old magazines and glued them to a sketch diary.
It was a great way to get some inspiration and ideas..
