The decorating kind! We've spent so much time on other areas of the Neglected Nest that we've neglected one of the most important spaces: our bedroom. It's where we unwind after our hectic days, and it's where we start our hectic days. Shouldn't it be a beautiful, functional refuge? We've decided to start answering that question with a "yes"!
Wall color is BM's Satin Sheets
We LOVE our Pottery Barn duvet set, "Floral Vine"
We've been leaving the windows bare to expose the white wood blinds and pretty trim that's original to the house. It's been so much easier waking up in the morning without curtains blocking the sunlight out! We love how fresh it feels.
(This is Birdie's room, but ours has the exact same windows. I just didn't get a "before" shot of ours. Oops!)
Isn't that trim work beautiful? Its one of my favorite things about our Nest.
Even though Mr. Nest and I each have a closet, living with just 1 dresser between the two of us has been impossible. So we found this one on Craigslist for $50 (but haggled him down to $45 because the condition was rougher than expected).
Well, after a major sanding, 2 coats of primer, and 3 coats of BM's Fennel Seed paint, and 2 coats of poly, I'm thrilled with the results!
There are a ton of glass knobs out there, and we went a few rounds on which ones to get. In the end, I'm so happy we went with these (Mr. Nest's pick!).
So I'm going to start working on our old one to match. It's amazing how similar the styles of them are!
I'm going to find something to do with these old knobs.
The new ones are going to look great!
I love how old and worn and dark our dresser has gotten over the years. But it's falling apart and needs a lot of TLC. I also think the room will look more cohesive if both dressers match, so it's getting painted.
We still have lamps to makeover and a new rug to lay down, but we're already feeling great in our "new" space. Can't wait to reveal the finished room! Redecorating = bedroom fun!
