Mr H has indicated that he wants to move our bed back upstairs. (We’ve been sleeping in the dining room since March.) Before the big move I’m taking the opportunity to spruce things up up there.
I even have a plan!
The July issue of Southern Living gave me inspiration, and I had been salivating over their Home Special Section photos ever since it arrived. Fortunately they have the photos online, so I can show them to you easily. Have a look here. Just in case that’s not there anymore, here’s one of the photos:
I started back in July by taking down the c.1995 wallpaper border in the room. I don’t have any “before” photos, but take it from me, it needed to go. Since then, I’ve been trying to decide on a paint color. I did not like the aqua color in the magazine entirely, so I’ve settled on a color called Nordic Blue from Lowe’s with Dove Wing trim.
The painter is here today and so far, I’m loving it.
The rest of my plan includes new nightstands, arriving Thursday, new bedding, plus an upholstered headboard and new window treatments that I’m making myself. I hope there will also be a new television and possibly an upholstered chair. We’ll see.
Rather than going over it all now, I’ll stop here and give you a play-by-play as it happens.
