update: we had homemade roast instead. Homemade by me, believe it or not. It was so simple
and deilicious. Why did no one tell me it was so simple?
-paper chandelier (this turned out awesome!)
-add details to pillows
-put together ikea shelf
-paint corner shelf
It's going to feel so good to get those things accomplished. I can't to walk into my room and feel good about it. Right now, it just feels unattended and messy (even when it's clean)
Via Pinterest, I found the Icovia Room Planner. The room planner allows you to see a scale model of your room and all your furnishings. You can choose from their selections, or add your own. It was slow going, but it was very helpful to see a scale model of my room.
This is my bedroom as it looks now. The furniture in light blue is definitely staying through the redo process (bed, desk, dresser). All other furniture is up in the air; it might stay or it might go. This is what you see:
green - dog crate (going)
purple - bookshelf (going)
dark purple - full length mirror
yellow - trashcar
red - nightstand
orange - corner shelf
Update: We settled on this layout again. It's the best thing for the room and with the bookshelf gone everything feels bigger. (There is one more update at the bottom of this page)
So I'll stick with the original layout since I like this the best. Someday I'll have a bedroom that is strictly a bedroom and not a home office, but this works for now. Make it work.
There will be many posts coming about our projects this weekend, but give me time. There is a lot to write.
