I was doing so good trying to post more regularly, but then Santi went out of town for all of last week and i just got busy doing other stuff and i just didnt get around to posting – but im back now :)
I am getting ready to do a little re-do on my room, nothing big. Just changing up the paint and adding a couple little things that i have been waiting forever to do. And i realized i have never shown pics of my room before…
I couldnt find a real before pic. When we moved in we had white walls and nothing else. The only thing we brought with us from our old house was our bedroom set. As a quick fix i painted the walls April Thicket by Valspar.
Then, when Santi was deployed and went to Iraq for about a year and 1/2, i decided to add board and batten molding and repaint the walls. I actually promised a LONG time ago that i would show pics of how i did the board and batten – sorry about that! I promise i will get to it this week. But looking back at the pics i took of when i did it, they arent great!
So after the board and batten was done and the walls repainted, this is how it looked. These pics were actually taken about a year and half ago when i went on the Nate Show. A lot has already changed in this room since then!
I love my old ladder hanging above the windows. The curtains would have looked funny taking them all the way to the ceiling because there is so much wall space, the ladder filled up the space perfectly.
You can see that we dont have a door going into our bathroom. The toilet is in its own separate room, but the vanity, shower and tub are all seen from the bedroom. I seriously hate that now that we have lived with it for a while. So thats one of the things that will be changing.
I learned long ago that i get bored easily and like change. The best thing i ever did was buy the white comforter from target (which they still have by the way), and then i change out my quilt and pillows (this one was from Homegoods) when i get bored, which is often :)
Thats my room! When i get my changes made i will be sure to post. But i will get working on that board and batten post this week :)
