It's time to show you the second master bedroom at Doc Holiday--at least what it looked like right after we moved all the furniture in. At first I thought maybe I should wait to blog about this room until I had it exactly the way I want it to be--"plu-perfect" as my hubby calls things when they are exactly right. But then I decided to be honest--it's pretty now but it is a
work in progress. Here goes!
In July when I brought the U-Haul to Tybee for the move into Doc Holiday, there were a few frantic days trying to set up while last-minute construction was still ongoing and I knew I had family showing up in a few days for a fun week at the beach. Not much time to shop. And strangely not much that worked for my house when I did go to my favorite stores.
So I took what I had and did my best. The adults in our family prefer king size beds so I found a headboard I liked for a great price on eBay and painted it with Sherwin-Williams semi-gloss paint in Frolic SW 6703. This is what it looked like right after painting.
|Sorry about all the furniture in front of it--we had quite a few pieces awaiting their turn to be painted.|
I like lots of vintage things but vintage mattresses--not so much! So we bought a new mattress and bed frame in Savannah. There is no footboard by design. In a small room it is best to go with just the headboard--a footboard would take up too much room visually and make the room feel even smaller.
This was my first attempt at arranging the bed with the pillows I had on hand...
On my next trip to Tybee, Jane Coslick and I rearranged things a bit and the lamps were swapped out. This photo only shows one lamp--that's all Savannah's Kirkland's had but I had one on hold at the Conyers store. So here's Take Two...
|Like I said, a work in progress...|
This is the dresser I posted about here.
And because you always need clothes and towel hooks at the beach...
As you can tell from this photo, we decided to leave that old, deliciously chippy-paint door that leads from the bedroom to the bathroom. As Jane would say, it's perfectly imperfect! It was too good to discard but beware tall people: You need to duck your head!
And that is where I am currently with this master bedroom. It's pretty, comfy and a nice place to lay your head...but am I finished? Am I satisfied? Nope. Not yet. I am not going to stop working on it until I think it is "plu-perfect". (Perfectionism...It's a disease.)
What about you? Do you have any works in progress?
