The platform bed Ryan built at the old house had to be disassembled and reassembled on the day of the move. And I didn’t want to live out of boxes, I so immediately put away clothing and jewelry. I’m so happy I did, because this makes the home feel more like home.
The bed was originally supposed to go between the window and the eave wall. Unfortunately, the headboard wouldn’t fit on the wall. So, we flipped it to the opposite wall. I like it.
And I have an idea for above the bed. It’s different than the old master bedroom. And I’m excited.
We also decided to move the dresser I bought a few months ago up to the bedroom for extra storage. I love it. And I am fairly certain I’m not going to paint it. I like it now. Still nothing fancy for a finish, but I like it with the rod iron mirror my parents gave us.
And as a functional bonus, I’ve been storing my most-used jewelry on the mirror. I love it. So much sparkle.
And after taking these pictures, I realized that I could display our pretty monogrammed cake table runner from the wedding. Isn’t it just fabulous here?
And while the closet isn’t anything really fancy, it’s really huge. It fits everything well and it’s so darn bright. So, Ryan no longer has to get ready in the pitch black. (He has to be to work several hours before so he would just get ready in the dark room.)
So this is probably the biggest upgrade for us.
And as a funny aside, I woke up the first night in the house to rustling and rumbling in the closet. It was Ryan. I whispered, “What are you doing?” And he grunted, “Looking for the bathroom!” The closet door is located right where the hallway/bathroom door was in our old house. Thank goodness he didn’t get confused and think he WAS in the bathroom. He said he just kept feeling around the walls in the dark.
Still laughing about that one.
Back to the bedroom.
I love the big comfortable chair (hand-me-down from in-laws) in the bedroom. Although it makes doing anything outside of cuddling with the pugs seems downright obnoxious.
So that’s the bedroom in a nutshell. It’s come a long way, baby.
