Two posts in a row! Talk about a New Years resolution. It’s like going to the gym everyday for a week… that’s what two posts in a row is like… at least in my head. I haven’t been to the gym since around 2005. It’s been 7 years. I was 26. Wow. Anywho, about our master bedroom and sitting room.
As I mentioned in our 2013 To-Do list, we’re planning on making use of this sitting room that’s attached to our master bedroom. I don’t think it would be proper to just show you the sitting room, so we’ll show you both.
***Remember, we haven’t done ANYTHING to these rooms other than throw in some furniture. They need paint, decorating, the works. Also, I hate decorating.***
Here’s the first thing you see when you come up our stairs…
Is it normally that cleaned and freshly vacuumed? Um… yes (no). I picked a crappy day to take these photos. It was heavily overcast even during the normally bright hours, so I had to use the overhead and room lights, which washes the room over in a warm amber glow. If you’ve tried to take interior photos at night, you know what I’m talking about. Oh well. It is what it is.
Moving into the room…
We have our bed.. it’s king sized. I would make a crack about being a king or something, but if you’re married and have a schnauzer you need all the room you can get.
This entire furniture set came from Mealey’s. It’s held up well. Nice stuff. The carpet, not so much.
My “gentleman’s chest” … thankfully they didn’t make me provide references or otherwise prove I’m a gentleman in order to purchase it.
If I’m not careful, several t-shirts will roll out onto the floor when I open the side door. It’s like a spring loaded peanut butter brittle can. Stuff pops out. I need to add a system to this thing. Not high on our list, but on the list nonetheless.
Moving onto the sitting room…
It’s actually a decent sized room. We’ve yet to do any actual “sitting” in said room, but we are planning on it.
There’s a nice sized long wall where we’ll put a couch…
We’ve actually already bought a couch for this space from Ikea and we’re using an older flat screen we have from our first home. I’ll be doing a couple posts on hiding the TV’s cables using a slightly different method than the Powerbridge we used at our neighbor’s house as well. Beyond that we need a TV console which we haven’t picked out, lighting and ideally some built-in shelving. Hopefully painting this space will carry over into the rest of the master.
Remind me never to take pictures in this room with those lights on again please. It’s giving me a headache.
What’s your first project of 2013?
