I mean look at this shit. Talk about uninviting and drab, drab, drab. The only positive thang I can say about this decor is that it was definitely snoozeville, and we are in the bedroom for Gawd's sake. The bedroom walls had never been painted since the house was built in 1995, so it still had the boring speck paint on the walls. Now as much as I love Uncle Jeffy, the man is cheap. Gettin' him to spend a dollar is like pullin' an impacted molar. He's thinkin' we can slap a coat of paint on the walls, go to Target and buy a new bedspread, and call it a day. Uh, not exactly much of a redo huh? So, after much negotiating and hiding the designer's invoices from el cheapo, we decided we had to keep the furniture and do our best with that restriction. Uncle Jeffy laid down the law and said the deal breaker was gettin' rid of his big ol' bed that he has come to love so much. Okey dokey then.
VOILA!!!! All nice, new, crisp bedding mixing some pricey items with some budget finds. Although the picture doesn't show it, the spec white walls, have been painted a nice tranquil blue. I'm lovin' the custom bench and pillows. Plus, those fancy schmancy curtain like thangs actually close around the bed for some private time. Sorta makes me feel like a queen!
OH YEA BABY!!!! Just think of the possibilities!!!!!!
