Nesting is in full effect around here! The bug has finally hit me, starting with the master bedroom! While my dad was in town last week, Hubs had some help lifting the headboard to install it, finally! The headboard has been leaning against the wall since we moved to Savannah over a year ago. Feels so much more like a finished space with just the headboard on the wall! I know it sounds crazy, but the past couple nights I've been sleeping a lot better, too just having this room almost finished. The men folk also installed the sconces next to the bed.
The biggest obstacle is obviously the size of the room. We have a king sized bed that we are just not willing to part with ( I need my space! ). Smaller bed side tables were in order, and I found some very reasonably priced ones on Overstock, and then found the same ones for even cheaper on Amazon. (If you don't have Amazon Prime, you aren't living!) They were the wrong color (bright turquoise), but with a little Annie Sloan all is well again. Sometimes I just buy furniture based on its shape and price rather than what it looks like. Paint fixes almost everything.
The other side of the room didn't really change other than the paint color on the wall. It used to be a deep blue/navy, now it's Behr Dolphin Fin.
And the room is almost done! Just waiting on a baby now!
Still to do- we need to hang the leaning mirror on the wall. By moving our bed over with the gained space we got from smaller bedside tables, we lost room for the mirror to actually lean. Once it's mounted onto the wall the problem will be solved.
I also need to finish painting the other bedside table, and the master bathroom painting needs to be finished. Then there's this sad area that also needs to be addressed....
I keep telling myself "a place for everything, and everything in it's place". That is the hardest part of a smaller home. Organization! I've gotten much better at it, but still could use some help. If you have any tips, I'd appreciate them!
Just little things to do before this room is "done". Hooray! Three weeks to go until my due date.... tick tock.
