The Redecorating of the Master Bedroom
It’s almost finished. I just need to get the Big Nugget to finish the window trim, purchase some lamps and rugs – and get some artwork on the walls. The bedroom has come a long way. We’ve done nothing to it since we moved in to this house, over 15 years ago. But after spending too much time recuperating from my bilateral mastectomy and getting through chemo, it was time to change it. So, as is, here you go.
The long wall where the bed goes before:
There was a pale pink and gray striped wallpaper over a bright pink and green wallpaper. I hired someone to strip the wallpaper, which was impossible so he skimcoated and gave me nice white walls instead:
That thing up on the right top corner is a covered return-air vent that is no longer in use. We need to patch and paint it.
This is the dormer window that looks out over the front yard before:
Here’s the dresser that my grandfather made decades ago, before:
I painted it a pale gray:
A close-up of what’s on top includes the milk glass I just started collecting and an antique wig/hat stand that I sprayed white:
Here’s the window that overlooks the back yard, before:
And here’s the back window now (I’m looking for a new seat cushion):
This is what that dresser on the left of the photo above, looked like before. This is one my dad made:
Now it’s a pale gray:
And this is the bookcase that used to be a really dark walnut stain, now it’s a bright turquoise:
Here are the side tables that used to also be stained a really dark stain. I love this chartreuse! My side:
The big Nugget’s side:
And to think, the room’s color scheme came from these curtains I had Floweer make for me:
I’ll be working on the artwork this weekend and show you when it’s done.
