Remember my horrible old bedspread with the holes in it? It was finally to the point where the holes were getting bigger every time I made the bed and I didn't dare wash it for fear the whole thing would fall apart. After a very long wait, I finally got a new bedspread! Yeah! I am thrilled!
I have been looking at bedding online and in every store that had a bedding section for the past few months trying to decide what I wanted. I was tempted to get something completely different than what I had that would require an entire room re-do (and maybe even master bathroom re-do), but I restrained myself. :) I decided on white so that it would go with what we currently have, but would also fit in well if we repaint or make some other changes (like the headboard project that I'll get to one of these days). I also knew that I wanted a comforter and bedskirt instead of a bedspread. It's so much easier to make the bed when you have a comforter.
So without further ado, here is a tour of my new and improved bedroom. :)
The bedspread has a damask pattern, but it doesn't show up in the picture. I put the quilt across the cedar chest at the foot of the bed.
Mike thought I was crazy to hang plates on the wall. :) I'll be on the lookout at local thrift stores for more to add to the display.
My antique vanity table. The girls love to sit here and comb their hair. It's missing a couple of knobs and I'm hoping to eventually find some suitable replacements.
My bedside table. It would probably look better if I took the glass off, but it gets dusty so quickly that I would have to wash the table cloth at least once a week. This way I just dust the glass weekly and wash the tablecloth once a month. By the way, I have a huge stack of books hidden under there. :) Oh, and do you like my little polka dot reading glasses? Unfortunately I can't read without them.
By the way I am deliberately not showing you Mike's bedside table. His looks very similar to mine except that it is covered with change, about 10 books, a flashlight, a cross made with nails that a friend gave him, the remote control (yes we have a TV in the bedroom), some pencils, highlighters...Well, you get the idea. He's a bit of a clutter bug, but I love him anyway. ;)
