Hello, friends. I've been meaning to share with you for a while a few updates we made in our master bedroom, but the sad truth is that I've been to lazy to clean my room to photo-worthy standards so that I could actually share with you the updates. Those first 12 weeks of pregnancy really stole all of my motivation. I am pleased to say that I finally feel (sort of) like a real live human being again. Definitely not my crazy-always-has-to-be-doing-something self, but at least alive.
Here's a recent shot of my master bedroom.
Observant eye balls will notice the new ottoman at the foot of our bed, and the new hanging light fixture. Really observant eye balls will notice that I most certainly did not iron my bed skirt when I cleaned my room for the pics. Crap.
I finished my wingback chair a while back, as one of my first ever reupholstery projects. Here's how she looked then, with my scary blue walls in the bedroom.
I didn't have the budget to replace the foam at that point, so it sat there with a saggy cushion for a long time. I finally got the time, cash, and bravery to finish the seat cushion properly with new plump foam and a Dacron wrap and reupholster the ottoman.
Here's the much beefier seat cushion in my much calmer colored bedroom now.
It feels much better so sit on these days also.
Here's what the ottoman to this chair looked like when I originally picked it up at a thrift store.
Why didn't I just keep the original fabric? It would have been so perfect in my bedroom... oh dear.
So here is that cute little ottoman now that I finally finished it, reunited again with its mate.
As you can see the ottoman slightly blocks the path to our bathroom, so unless I am reading or want to kick my feet up on the chair the ottoman resides here as a foot of bed bench.
I kinda like it.
Also, I found this steal of a deal at Home Depot on a lantern style hanging light fixture. I saw one lurking out from behind another light with a clearance sticker, and had to take it with a price tag of $60.
Slowly but surely, the little additions to our bedroom are making it a complete space. I still need to decide on my decor to fill this wall, but other than that it's almost done!
