It's here! It's time! Can you even believe it?
The last few days I've been running around dancing thinking "it's done! It's done! It's done!" Anyone else?
You ready? Here she is:
Wait! Remember it before?
I'm totally head-over-heels in love with the new color, Clary Sage by Sherwin Williams. Sometimes at night I lay in bed and just gaze at the walls and trim lovingly. Bryan is a little bit jealous.
As you can see we kept all the furniture, although we did switch around the chest of drawers and cedar piece.
On this wall we added some art.
The Mississippi River engineer print turned out pretty well. I had a hard time finding a frame for it as it printed a weird size. As you can see it's a little odd, but I'm happy with it for now. And you can't beat the price!
These are the sweetest pieces between the closet and hallway doors. The top piece I had custom made by a local artist. It features maps of three important places to Bryan and I (where we met, our first apartment and our first home). The bottom piece is an old sketch of the new house I found in one of the closets. I had it matted and framed on the cheap. There isn't a date on it and the landscaping and treescape are vastly different than it is now. I wish I knew how old it is!
These are the pieces we switched around. When we installed the curtains the chest of drawers seemed to fit better on the wall next to the curtains.
My mom hemmed the curtains from our old house (and previously at my grandmother's assisted living apartment). They are hung much wider than our window, but it gives that wall more dimension and presence. I like it.
Our budget was pretty much zero, but I didn't have to buy much. Here's the rundown:
Baskets over cedar piece: $30
Mississippi River art and frame: $27
House sketch framing: $44
Not bad! This room really feels like ours now. Despite Bryan's being slightly hesitant on the remodel and dragging his feet on the crown molding, he appreciates the difference. We are both eager for our next project. The guest bedroom or the master bath?
