The Bedroom

Well, we still haven’t gotten around to building the barn door we talked about back in this post, but we did manage to make the bed at least once this month give our bed a quick spring/summer makeover this month!

We just swapped out the toile quilt and shams it was previously sportin’ for the quilt and shams my Mom hooked us up with for our birthday’s last year.

(In case any inquiring minds want to know- the striped quilt and shams are from Pottery Barn’s “Clearlake” collection, which is now discontinued, but I have seen pieces on eBay from time to time. The white and porcelain blue striped duvet and boudoir pillow cover are from PB’s Grand Embroidered collection, and you can find info about those pieces, here.)

And although we may be far from finished in this room, it seems to be slowly-but-surely ship shapin’ up. (Yay!) Among other things, we’re on the hunt for a ceiling light, a large rug, and a piece of furniture to use at the foot of the bed. Maybe a bench, like this…?

Looks easy enough to make, eh?

And, of course, we look forward to tackling the barn door project one of these days too.

Now if I could just talk her into helping me and Kev make ours every day! I love slipping into a freshly made bed at night, but making it every morning just doesn’t seem to happen. That’s okay with Max though. He prefers the messy look…
