What am I talking about? Take your pick....our master bedroom, Monkey's big boy room, and most recently - the nursery!
I've been told a room is never really finished. That it is always a work in progress. I guess that means that at some point I'm going to have to reveal my projects to you as is....because there IS some truth in that. A creative person is never completely finished with a project. Maybe our home's status will always be "in progress".
...just like me!
God designed me, but His work isn't finished either. Each day he is molding and shaping me to be more like Him, a reflection of Him. And yet He isn't ashamed to show me off - He is proud of me and what He's done through me so far.
Maybe I should remember that my perfectionism. =) Making my home a reflection of my personal style is not going to happen overnight (or apparently, in three years either).
So even though I'm STILL not ready to show off the nursery or Monkey's big boy room (but they ARE coming!!!) I'm going to show you the master bedroom. Because we've been living in it for months now. Because according to my husband, it IS finished. And because...I'm really quite proud of what it has become.
I think this is the earliest picture I have of the room....AFTER we turned it from a shop into part of the house...but as you can see it was just used as storage for our yard sale back in July. You might want to read back to THIS POST to find our inspiration =)
Our friend Adrian laid the hardwood floors (he did our whole house). If you are local and need any hardwood floors refinished or put in I would HIGHLY recommend him! I've never met someone who knows more about hardwood floors.
View when you enter from the living room.
View from the closet door.
And JUST in case you thought we actually had it all together....view the OTHER side of the room - the thron in my side! A storage area for projects going on in every corner of the house:
Yeah...not so impressed NOW, are ya? ;)
Like I said...this room is still FAR from finished in my eyes. It is actually painful for me to show you these pictures because I'm not a huge fan of it as is. So expect some dramatically different changes in the near future. There is new bedding on the horizon, and we still have to put up the draperies, and there will be some decorative painting hopefully this summer. Also looking for that perfect headboard and nightstands (a room wouldn't be complete without it!) and that hope chest under the window is getting a makeover (I TOLD YOU there was a lot left to do...)
And don't even ASK what's beyond the closet doors...wait...what?!? You asked? Ugh.....you DON'T want to see this (or maybe you do...)
So I won't show you the NURSERY but you can see her existing CLOSET (which is kinda combined with ours for now)!
Another project zone....cuz its too cold for spray paint outside!
A recent thrift store find that had me drooling =)
And FYI - this post started out as just an update on our progress....
