It only took us a month of living there to get that mess primed over, and the gross carpet ripped out.
Shortly after, I let Shaun pick the paint color (Behr Simple Silhouette), and it became sort of a 'man room' with my old tube tv while we saved up for a flat screen for the living room.
My old futon set is not anything I would buy today, but it was very 'IN' when I bought it in 2000. Luckily, I unloaded it on CL for almost $500! I love Craigslist.
In 2009, we moved our old bed in here when we got our TempurPedic, and it's been basically a random stuff/guest room since then. Here it is today, with our living and dining room rugs on the bed. See, random stuff.
Check the difference the wide angle lens makes! Love it. We are not changing the wall color when it becomes baby's room, it's so bright in here I think the dark color works well.
The closet has some very awkward organization added by the previous owners, not sure if that is going to be redone or not. It's almost impossible to get to the back right portion. And ooops, I forgot about some blue inside that door!
My thrift store campaign style dresser will be the changing table, when I get around to picking a paint color.
I love the ceiling light and matching sconce above the dresser. They are stylish but still nursery-appropriate. I just made that criteria up.
I got them from LunaWarehouse for a great price, they always offer extra coupons. Sconce here, ceiling fixture here.
I'm looking forward to baby H having a nice big play area when we get that queen bed and huge tv out of here!
I've picked up a bigger rug, the zebra is a too-small 5x7. I found a brand new 8x10 of this Pottery Barn Henley rug (in Sailor Blue) on eBay for $300.
Holla! Now I just need to figure out what else I'm doing in this room. That is the hard part.
