Honestly, I’ve not done much with the bedrooms in my house since the last of our kids moved out (about 6 years ago). In April of 2011, my brother and nephews, as well as my dad, all moved in for a short time- they were in between houses and need a place to stay. This is what it looked like then…
It is the front bedroom and well, nothing spectacular really… it has been needing some TLC.
You can’t tell really, but there is carpet (low pile, commercial office type carpet)and the furnishings are all hodge-podge…which, simply put… is pretty much what I like. I don’t like matching sets of furniture. You may like it—that’s fine. But for me—I like to mix it up a little bit!
Below is the same room; to the left of the bed—Mid-Night Blue walls… a left over from when my daughters (both of them) were still home… and more hodge-podge-ing of the furniture.
The armoire, a hand-me-down piece from my Granny’s house. It was left over from when HER mother owned the house (a duplex) and rented out half of it. It is Art Deco period, water-fall type and very big on storage! I’ve had this in my possession—for about 25 years. It stores—winter coats, clothes, boxes of old VHSes … (not all at once) but heck, it stores pretty much WHAT EVER YOU WANT IT TO STORE!
It was also slathered in MID-NIGHT BLUE paint.
The week after the babies were born—I started working in there… This is my BEFORE.
I know… that was 3 weeks ago and now you’re wondering why I’m just now telling you all this. Because well, I’ve been work, work, working- ON WINTER PROJECTS!
I’ll show you how it looks pretty soon. It’s not finished. But, my word…! It’s a big change!
I’ll also be bringing you up to speed on the move…
Oh... and I'm counting down the days until I turn 50... You can read a post from about 6 months ago, here-- Leaving Something for our Children. (written by your's truly)
Have you been working on winter-time projects? What do you do to keep busy when it’s cold out?
