Pondering the master...

Because I do so very little during the day, and have no incomplete projects to tend to *cough cough*, I thought it was time to ponder the master... We moved into the house 20months ago and nothing has been done in the master bedroom...Well, besides sleep and making a big mess of boxes of books, cds and dvds....I know, why are these things in the master bedroom??...Well simply because the book shelf they once lived on is currently occupied with childrens books, puzzles, games, lego, and other 3yr old appropriate stuff.

So last weekend I finally hung an empty frame and the candle sconces on the wall over the bed...

yay @ progress

We have had the same headboard for over a decade and to be honest I am a little more than over it...I am thinking of making it look like an upholstered headboard using the toile print that is currently hanging there while I "ponder" this idea....

I would love to add some yellow plaid in here too...why?...umm cause I like yellow plaid and think it would make a great contrast to the yellow/burgundy toile...The room is also void of curtains, with just cheap $5 blinds from Walmart and a blue airline courtesy blanket (thank you USAir) hanging on just one of them because I took down the other one to use at a window in another room...Yup I have classy window coverings for sure lol..

If you took the time to click and enlarge you would notice our uper cute sheets...My MIL gave them to us because she said they gave her nightmares with the bold print...They have grown on me and I have come to really love them....The current comforter is the "back-up" while our other one is waiting to go to the cleaners....

I will probably make a cover for it one day...we have had it for 12yrs and it is starting to show the wear, but each time I buy a new one we hate it and miss the old ones comfortable familiarity.


What needs to be done to make over this room??

  • Find a better place for the books, CDs and DVDs than stacked in various corners of the room.
  • Decide on fabrics and their uses. (curtains, bed cover etc)
  • Teach hubby to put his clothes into the dresser and not pile them on the floor in front of the dresser. (this is going to be a hard one because he does not like me to put his clothes away *shrugs*)
  • Work on getting toddler sleeping in her room so we can remove the toddler bed from our room...(we are still working on some bad habits from prior to her surgery, but are getting closer each day)
  • Sort out closet so it is more efficient to put the clothing away.
  • Win the lottery :)

I like your master,and I think you could do a lot with this room. I also love the headboard,don't think it needs any help. Curtains of course can dress up any room :)

You have such a great eye for interior decorating that I'm sure whatever you decide will be incredible. But, I am eager to see what you might think of doing.

Kelsi,

Making your headboard into an "upholstered" headboard is an awesome idea! I do hope you'll post pics should you decide to do so! Sometimes it's just nice to have a change and it seems like the master bedroom can be a neglected room. Why is that? Maybe it's along the same lines of taking care of others but neglecting ourselves....

Have a great day!

Kelsie,
YES! Upholster the headboard...and YES! to adding yellow! NOW...when you're finished come on over and help me with mine! I need new linens so badly...but can't bear to part with the ones I have (now 16 years old)! Keep the progress updates coming...you're such an inspiration!
Fondly,
Pat
P.S. Get busy and paint a picture to put in that frame...you're a great artist!

Good luck with getting hubby to put clothes away! I stuggle with the same problem he just piles them up on top til I can't stand it anymore and finally put them away. Ughh! I'm with you on winning the lotto! :) Traci

Great progress!
My master needs some help, too. At this point though, it's pretty low on the priority list. One day I'll get to it!
