If our bedroom was to show up in the archives of Design Sponge or Apartment Therapy, it'd definitely fall into the "Before" category. Problem is I have nearly zero motivation to get us to the "After." There's nothing so problematic about it. The bed is really beautiful. It's an awesome sleigh-bed with a leather headboard. It was here when I came along and I have no dreams of doing away with it. The furniture is well-made but old and not totally my taste. I purchased the bedding and I really love it (but still would love to swap it out for other beddings that catch my eye... what is that about bedding?). And I have nothing, like nothing, hanging on the walls. I have so many pictures, two pieces of gallery wrapped canvases already done, frames, and ideas galore but yet I don't put anything up. I lack the skill, courage, gumption (or something?) that it takes to hammer those nails to the wall. I don't want to commit. What if I change my mind? Spackle, sanding, primer, paint. That's a lot of steps to fix my errors! So, the bedroom remains, well, boring (the decorating anyway. Yes, I did just get cheeky there.). Here's a few pictures, though, that have me inspired and make me think that it's not too many steps to making the bedroom a bit more inviting. Some more pillows. Some nightstand organization. Lowlight. Flowers. Pictures on the wall.
I think I can do it?
