Let's try this again, shall we?
Should have done this yesterday, but I was too eager to post pics.
Last night whilst lying in bed, I thought of this arrangement.
What do you think?
I tried to do a panoramic type view of the room.
I'm not totally in love with the chair in there, but I am in love with the chair. One of my first curbside treasures. I could recover the cushion, etc...with no chair there, it looks rather plain. If I don't keep it in this room, I have to get rid of it. There is absolutely no where else in the house for it.
See how the ceiling curves? I think it's cool..but I'm going to have to repaint the ceiling, because you can still see some yellow over the taupe.
The room is really bathed in light. My house faces south. I have all wood blinds on all of my windows in the house. I like them (waving at Cheryl). I gave up curtains a few years ago, but now I'm thinking, that some fabric on the windows might be a nice touch. When my house was all primitives, it all seemed so cluttered to me, so of course, I went for the exact opposite when I redecorated.
The loom in the corner, on an angle. It seems to welcome you to sit and weave. My grandma-ma's old sewing machine in front of the window. If it weren't a family heirloom, I wouldn't care if it stayed or left.
The ceiling fan is an eyesore. Can't believe I've lived with it this long. Staying true to my 'nothing new' this year....spray paint will fix it.
I decided to paint my circa 1980 bedroom set a distressed, antique cream. I thought it would pop nicely with the bed on the wall here. This is the only place the bed can afford a nightstand as well. The old lamp, can go or stay, but it will be painted and re-shaded if it stays.
I want to make a new bedskirt. Something with color. I want to redo the pillows on the bed....
The bed on this wall bothers me somewhat, I keep thinking of a decorating 'rule' that I read somewhere, where the headboard should be the first thing you see when you enter a bedroom.
The chest of drawers is going to have to stay. I just plum need the closet space. The only closet in the house is that doorknobless one in the corner. It's filled with rug making supplies and scuba gear! I think once it's painted, and the knobs are different, it might be ok. The space heater. Don't ask. Glenco isn't taking it out. It's kinda cool when we do sleep up here in the winter, it's like a little fireplace.
Ok, let's talk about that floor. I just KNEW I would evoke alot of comments when I talked about painting it. Ladies...I'm almost 50. I want to play in the dirt, and camp in The Squirrel. I don't want to spend my time stripping and refinishing things. I painted the hall floor.....see?
The door to the left in this picture is my workout room. Can't show you that now, cause it's a bit piled up with all the stuff that was in the bedroom :-) But, the floor is painted in there too, and me like.
Here is a photo, showing the three room merging. Just seems that the floor in the bedroom should be painted so it all 'flows'.
From a far, in the pictures, the floor does look lovely.
Let's take a closer look at it.
The jury is still out on the floor. I can't imagine what I could do to it to make it look good enough. Then the whole floor not matching thing would get to me.
I can't thank you enough for your comments! I have quite a few ideas tucked in my head now. I'm thinking the first thing I should do is to get the headboard and dresser painted.
Keep the comments coming. Let me know how you like this arrangement. I can move things again and take more pics.
I can't wait to start the painting, the layering in of junk and cool stuff, to make this room come alive!
