Homemaker on a Dime
Keeping it Simple
I Should be Mopping the Floor
Good morning all - OMG the pressure I was under last weekend - because I told you I would have the final reveal up for Monday morning - why why why do I do that to myself?
I was like a firecracker - zipping here and there - changing things around 5 times at least each - made the bed 3 times - 3 different ways - until I was finally so exhausted that I just had to start snapping pics.
I'll post a couple of photos of the entire room - or as much of the entire room as I can manage to fit in and then do " vignettes ".
Please remember - this is a very tiny Master Bedroom - with little storage - ( and very little light - which is what prompted this " white " makeover in the first place ) so it may seem a little cramped but that I definitely cannot change - you gotta work with what you have - so here we go.................( and there WILL be changes made most definitely lol )
This is still for sale - but until it goes it can sit right here
Ok those of you with sharp eyes for details are going to notice things change from picture to picture -
because I am far far far from finished tweaking - so I take a photo - then change something - take a photo then change something - but if I don't put this post up it'll never get done - I'M A TWEAKER, I tweak constantly -
I'll be tweaking on my way to the funeral parlour one day I'm sure.
Here's a few close ups ( vignettes Suzan - they're called vignettes - get with the blog program girl )
I spray painted a basket white - to hold pillows
another basket ( not painted yet ) holds a couple of Christmas Wreaths - because nothing says cottage
decor like wreaths lmho
even the ledge above the doorway
I know I mentioned that I hate fake flowers - but these ones I love - and I spent a fortune on them - so don't tell me they're tacky please..............thank you
Below is a dresser that never sold - and now we've both decided we would rather keep it - it's loaded with history - I'll do a post on this dresser soon - it's painted in ASCP Duck egg blue - and looks so pretty on the white floor
I have a lot of Willow Tree figurines - A. LOT. OF. THEM. - they're all packed away - but these 3 ( given to me by my kids and obviously represent my kids ) will never be packed away - each time I look at them
they are that age in my mind again and they are sitting around me while I read them stories - some memories need to stay very vibrant..........
I hung a burlap shopping bag on one of the cupboard doors
John says - Shouldn't there be a bag on each door - to keep it symetrical?
Suzan says - But if I put one your door - you'll actually use it -
John says - Why, you're not going to use the one on your door?
Suzan says - Of course I'm not going to USE it - it'll lose it's shape and look messy
John says - What in God's name is it hanging there for, then
Suzan says - It's a look John - and you're never going to get it - so stop questioning every single thing
I do - you make me feel stupid, really you do............
John says - Well - I personally feel it IS stupid to hang a bag on a door that you're not allowed to use........
John says - We've got candles we can't light - a bench we can't sit on - a ladder we can't use and now bags we can't fill
Suzan says - Well we DO have candles we can light - don't make it sound like I don't light candles now!!!
Suzan screams - GET OFF THE BED!
John says - Why?
Suzan says - I just made it - and you're getting wrinkles all over it
John walks out of the room................
A little table I picked up for 5.00 - these used to be lamp bases - do you remember them? ( floor lamps )
I filled in the hole where the pole went through - painted it white and did a transfer from the Graphics Fairy -
I did this ages ago but had no where to put it - think I've found a place to put it.
Ok this is so funny that I can't keep it to myself..................not that I keep much to myself anyway.
Once John left the room I tore the bed apart - because there's something about a white room with rumpled white linens that I LOVE - and I was busy busy busy rumpling them in just the right away.........humming under my breath
Suzan says - Why are you always trying to scare me like that! Its very creepy.
John says - What the HELL are you doing, exactly?
Suzan says - Trying to make the bed look rumpled and messy
John says - I see that - but why?
John says - You just painstakingly made it.
John says - AND I couldn't sit on the BLOODY thing because I might wrinkle it?
Suzan says - I'm doing it for YOU -
John says - Yeah right
Suzan says - Oh, I know, you know how you go on and on about Good Debt and Bad Debt?
Suzan says - well in MY world - there's Good Mess and Bad Mess............
This is good mess
and this is bad mess - very very bad mess - I don't like it - I can't stand it - can you go clean it please?
shhh - don't tell him I took a photo of this.................
His mess confuses me - it gives me anxiety - it upsets me immensely -
My mess soothes me - it brings me peace - and make me feel very happy -
And that's the conclusion of the bedroom folks - stay tuned - I think I'm going to be tackling the bathroom next!!!
