organization domination - the bedroom

Monday, January 28, 2013

Happy Monday y'all? Yes I say happy because it has to be a good week around here. Last week was not fun. Let's see. I had a touch of the flu, threw out my back and capped it off with a little cold. Thankfully the flu and cold were not as bad as what I've been hearing is going around, but it still sucked. And sucks even more when you have to take care of two kids! I'm lucky that Mark works close to home and was able to come home to help out.


Because last week was such a flop, I got into high gear with organizing over the weekend to start this week off right. 

Aww poor empty frame! Need a pic for that one!
Nothing makes me happier than starting off a week with a clean house, so when I was dusting the bedroom yesterday I decided to switch things up a bit. I don't have a before pic, but just picture a million things on the dresser and side tables and piles of clothes on the chair. I moved a few things here and there and I'm pretty happy with how it's looking. It just feels a bit more serene.

Here's the thing: there is a lot of brown in this room (aka matchy matchy furniture) so I'm going to see what I can do about softening it up a bit. I can't paint it, but I do have some ideas on accomplishing this.

I also want to get that nice little chair in the corner reupholstered and I've got my eye out for a new duvet cover. I want something a bit lighter.

Got any plans for your bedroom?

  1. It looks very serene - I have trouble imagining that you let things get too crazy, but I'll take your word about the "before" state of things. I love that little blue bowl on your dresser. I look forward to seeing what you come up with for a duvet cover. I've been searching for one for years and still haven't found anything that's just right.

  2. My jaw dropped when you started with "when I was dusting the bedroom". You are superwoman :-)

    Looks great!

  3. HA Janice - OK I should have stated that I NEVER dust in there which is probably why I felt the sudden urge to do it. Mark usually just swipes the whole room with the vacuum when he's doing the rest of the house but the dust was getting a bit out of control...

    @Susan - I hear ya - finding the things that are "just right" are so hard to come by!
