Hello Mr. Jordan, how unlovely to see you.
Let's not forget the other poster above B's dresser: a naked girl wearing nothing but Jordan's.
See? Frat boy.
Except B was never in a frat so he has no excuse.
This is what you see when you look toward the 1/2 bathroom. I still won't pee with B in the room, I don't want him to hear me!
Yes, that sign really hangs above my toilet.
And check out the hot counter
Let's leave the bathroom alone, shall we?
One more view of the entrance to our room from a different angle
In just this one picture, we've got three different types of materials on the wall: sheetrock, smooth salmon paint and textured white paint.
Let's take a look at the finer details:
But it gets better! Under the shag, we've got a thin green pad thing and then linoleum!
And the icing on the cake
If it were up to me, we would add some color to the walls. My cousin has kind of turquoise walls in her bedroom and I love them. We would DIY a tufted headboard and put a mirror above the borrowed dresser. I'd love some crown molding too, but none of those are absolutes. I don't have a specific vision for the room, but I've always wanted a room that is serene and a place where I want to spend time. Right now I jump out of bed as soon as possible and scurry out. I'd even be ok with leaving the bathroom as-is for awhile, at least I can close the curtain.
FYI when we borrowed the dresser, we'd just found out we were having twins and were at B's sister's to break the news to his family. I thought his sister was giving us the dresser so I agreed to take it with thoughts of immediately painting it dancing in my head. Apparently it's just on loan so I can't wait to give it back and get a different one that we can paint.
I'm sure you're wondering why we have such a hideous bedroom? The truth is, when I moved in, I was 6 months pregnant with twins. My main focus was getting their room ready and also making the parts of the house people actually see more company-friendly. B was busy with major projects like wiring the carport-turned-garage for electricity so he could move the washer and dryer into the garage rather than the middle of the house (not joking.) I didn't want to be the girl who moves in and makes all the changes, our relationship was already strained and I didn't want him to resent me.
Now, the Bambinos room is pretty much done and the rest of the house is getting there. I'm not completely embarrassed to have people over anymore, but I am completely embarrassed when I get to the master bedroom portion of the house tour.
I would love for Mandi (who I loved on Craft Wars) to come help me makeover our bedroom! Will you all vote for me and help me win? I'll be reminding you a ton before voting begins September 7th.
