Ahhhh... that's better!

Isn't it funny how something doesn't bother you in the slightest and then all of the sudden it does.  It is all you see when you walk in a room.  Your eye goes straight to it or them in this case and they distract you.  Well that is the story with our bedroom furniture.  We bought the unfinished wood furniture piece by piece when we were in the city.  In fact our dressers don't match but not so much so that you can really tell.  My Mom helped me paint them chocolate brown for our last apartment in the city to match our blue and brown theme at the time and they have remained brown since then.

Which was fine except they looked kinda dark to me.  Ignore the cluttered mess on top of the dresser.  I seem to be incapable of keeping that surface tidy.

The bedroom was feeling otherwise light and airy and then there were these big brown behemoths that I couldn't stop seeing.

 So after a trip to the beach on Sunday I decided it was time to paint them and my patient husband looked at the crazy pregnant lady dragging painting supplies upstairs without a word and we took turns making coats while the other entertained our toddler.

And so now

We also took up the deep gray rug we had at the end of the bed.  You can just make it out here.

I'd like to replace it with a seagrass rug maybe.  Something light.  We need more yellow too.  The tiny touch in the pillows just isn't enough and I want the room to read as grey and yellow rather than grey with random yellow pillows.  We are really pleased with the change and I can't resist white furniture.  I think it makes a space instantly light and clean.   Ahhhh... I feel like I can breath in there now!


  1. It really does lighten up the room. Great job "crazy pregnant lady!"
