So our bedroom. Yup. This is where the magic happens (and when I say magic I mean thousands of hours of sleep complete with drool, snoring, dreams about befriending Britney Spears, and a little tiny bit of stuffed animal canoodling). Our bedroom was a mish-mash of different styles - but it has always been in the plan book to get a complete bedroom set for this space. And I have proof...remember this post? Obviously my two readers do :)
First, I did the most complicated disassembling job evah. I took apart our current 'side tables'. That's right - it got me sweating worse than a Biggest Loser contestant. I think I need a massage :) Seriously though...as you can see, our side table was nothing more than a $10 mirror on a $5 luggage rack. And being the thrifty gal I am, both the mirrors and the luggage racks will have new homes in our wee little house.
Then we put together our new fabulous side table. Yes, that is a singular term (not side tables) because we only have one. We bought two. The other one suffered from DDS....popularly known as 'DAMAGE DURING SHIPPING' - which is a quite common occurrence with el cheapo and expensive furniture alike. Note this is the side table with the silver knobs (Jeremy's preference).
And this is the side table with the more subtle wooden knobs (my preference). What do you guys prefer?
I also decided to change out the lamp shades. I got these creamy silk beauties at the Pottery Barn outlet for $7 a piece. I love the non-shine-through quality. Nothing is worse than rolling over to say goodnight and being blinded by the bright bulb shining through the shade. Except maybe rolling over onto a cockroach, or having a giant spider dangle over your head as you sleep or the thought of those microscopic worms crawling into your mouth as you nod off. Do you see why I have a hard time going to dreamland?!? Thank you Jesus for pest control....and Listerine!
