Because I was hosting 12 of my friends to the barn, I had to make the barn look somewhat presentable. Which included the bed.
This is what Ryan calls, “doing things in the wrong order.”
Like putting up a shower curtain before the shower is finished. Or putting up a barn wood cow on the wall before Ryan’s finished installing the outlet covers. Or planting flowers before we live on the property to water them.
Basically, EVERYTHING I DO IS OUT OF ORDER. I just want the excitement of the awesome part – the pretty and fun part.
Anyhow, back to the bed. I drug the mattress and all the bedding out to the barn for craft night. Because even though it’s still a bit of a construction zone, making a bed could make everything better. I just used Henry’s navy quilt from his room, along with a few of his pillows.
I had some questions about this bed in the last post. It’s the HEMNES daybed from IKEA. Our plan is to stack 2 twin mattresses on top of this bed. During the day, they’ll be stacked. At night, we’ll pull the base out and slide the mattress over to use as a bed. I’ll do a whole separate post about this when we have actually used it. for now, know that our plan is for the mattresses to be stacked on top of each other.
The view from the bedroom-slash-living-room into the kitchen. Oh, and look, there’s the bathroom and Henry’s room. It’s so handy to see everything from one spot. No privacy here, folks.
I am pretty sure it’s going to be quick to clean this place. I wonder if that means I will actually clean. Doubt it.
This wall is going to be a lifesaver. We’re planning to use the drawers for “dressers” for some of our clothing. And the television and electronics will also live there. A hard-working space.
And that’s where we’re at in the barn apartment.
It’s really looking like a home now, don’t you think? And surprisingly, the furniture actually makes it feel bigger. There’s plenty of room to walk around and for Henry to run. It’s pretty rad.
What do you think?
