Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year! We sure did, though it's never a holiday without a project around here! My dear hubby spent most of his holidays installing the kitchen backsplash (yeah, the one we planned to do last summer!) and it looks awesome! ,I of course, gave him the hardest tile to work with, but I love the results. There's few things to finish in the kitchen and then I can share all the details.
Here's a little in progress shot for now....
Anyways, the kids especially loved Christmas and it's fun to watch them enjoy time with family & friends, open way too many presents and have their daddy home all day. I liked that part too!
One of the projects near the top of the list is our bedroom. It's lacking the built-in wardrobe we need, so we are just using metal shelving (destined for the garage once the room is done) and a hanging rack. It always looks messy and doesn't make for a relaxing atmosphere at all!!
|(Here's the wall the wardrobe will run along. Obviously before we stained the floors and added trim.)|
We both want the room to feel clean, calming, grown up and classic. Somewhere to unwind after long busy days with our wild kids :) There's still a lot to be done to get it there!
Being that we're just at the dreaming, scheming and wishing stage I've been saving lots of ideas on Pinterest. It's a great way to find the feel you want for a space, even if you can't implement or afford everything in an image or room you like.
A few spaces that speak to me....
I need to find a statement light fixture, would love to add either a jute or antique rug to warm up the floors and add a chair to curl up and read in + art, pillows, so on and so forth.
As far as the wardrobe, we have a long wall to fill so we are planning to use Ikea's PAX system in white.
I'd be good with any of these from Anthropologie :)
So there you have all the ideas I dream about in our not so dreamy bedroom ;) As soon as we get the cash saved up and make the (dreaded by someone) trip to Ikea, I'll keep you in the loop!
