Living up to my promise, bedroom before & after

Starting off the week with a fresh new blog home, a fresh new header and a fresh new before and after!  I told you I would.  And while I don’t consider any rooms in the house to be final afters there has been progress made so I figured I would show you where we started, where we are now and where we want to go.

This, my friends, is where the bedroom started.  It was pink,  covered in boxes and dirty laundry, had mismatched bedding and *gasp* floral valances.  The horror!  Shield your eyes, here it comes.

Bedroom Before

The only thing worth saving in this room was the bed frame (it wasn’t originally there, that mattress was on the floor for months) and well, the cat.

So after a fresh coat of Behr’s Canvas Tan on the walls and ceiling and Swiss Coffee on the trim, some new bedding and a rug this is what the bedroom looks like now.

Bedroom After

Ahhhh, much better.  But it still needs work.  Here are two more views.

Bedroom Other Views

Obviously we’re lacking in artwork on the walls and I’m really hoping that pathetic wall mirror will turn into something like this mirror that I saw on Young House Love.  As for the picture on the right, those dressers with the broken drawers need to go.  I’d like to find a great tall danish dresser, something too high for that kitty to jump on!  You may have guessed, he’s a total ham.  But isn’t he handsome?

So there it is. I did it, I actually showed you!  And now that I see the photos like this I don’t feel as bad or nervous about it.  It’s pretty good progress for us and even though we are moving slowly, we’re moving.  More rooms to come soon, so stay tuned.
