Beddie Byes #2

Miss T’s bedroom is taking shape at a similar pace to Miss I’s. Largely due to sibling rivalry:
“Why did she get her light fitting first?”
“My room next!”
“No, I want my bedroom door on next!”
Actually girls, we would all like our bedroom doors on.
Especially mum and dad!

We are working on a red-and-blue colour scheme for Miss T’s room, with some softer hits of pink.

Again we have the problem with short curtain length, so I am looking at the same solution as Miss I’s. Not sure what colour though? Red? Blue? Thoughts?
The rug is temporary. Wrong colours and too small, but I wanted Miss T to have something (like her sister. See sibling rivalry above Winking smile).

I love the contrast of the dark blue velvety cushion from Ikea. Very happy I grabbed that. The red cordroy and fawn ticking pillows are from Target.

Again, the to-to list is long;
1. Paint tall boy. White? Or contrasting red? Maybe new handles.
2. Clean and paint dressing table picked-up from op-shop.
3. Hang mobiles.
4. Find rug.
5. Fix curtain length.
6. Paint bedroom door.
7. Hang art etc. on walls.
Next time – the journey of our Master miniscule bedroom. (I think from now on I will call it the Master bedroom, and you can laugh along with me Winking smile ).

Oh, my children are JUST like that! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Especially, quite sweetly, I suppose, about any crafty projects I make. The others are guaranteed to want one JUST THE SAME for themselves!!

I think the tall boy would look rather striking painted match the Ikea cushion.

It was lovely to see you over at Modern Country Style. Don't be a stranger....!

I love to watch bedrooms coming together! Looking forward to more updates! Have a good day, Kellie xx

MSR - one door to go! Am certainly looking forward tot that ;)

Sarah - I am leaning towards painting the tallboy red too. I think it will make a nice contrast. I need to get her wardrobe in first though or there will be no storage at all.

Kellie - yes, slowly coming together :) Progress will slow a bit over Christmas, but I have a lot of smaller projects to help bring their rooms together (and ours finally!).

Thanks for your comments and support :)
