Isn't this the most divine room on the planet? If I could have my dream room, this would definitely be it. I love the soothing colors, all the yummy soft draperies, the bedding, and the gorgeous exposed beams. It looks like the perfect place to relax and unwind. And so... I am using it as my inspiration while redoing our master bedroom/bathroom on a non-existent budget. Needless to say, mine will not be quite as luxurious, but I will do my darnedest to get close. I have lived with a disgusting excuse for a bedroom since we bought this house 3 years ago. I've allowed it to become the dumping ground for everybody's stuff, and all those things we just don't have a place to put. Bottom line...it was a cluttered, nasty, hot mess! There are so many "issues" with this room I felt overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. So I did nothing. And I was completely miserable...hated going in there. That door is the first one I close when the doorbell rings. I'm ashamed of it. But no more. I am putting my foot down, and hard! I.Need.A.Happy.Place.
I scored on these drapes a couple months back at Target. I found two of these gorgeous panels randomly left in the rubbermaid aisle. They were originally $39.99 each, but marked down to $8.74... I felt giddy. I've been collecting accessories and such at yard sales and clearance sales for several months in anticipation of my room redo.
I am so ashamed to show these pics, but I feel I must. You need to know how terrible this room was. This is one of the bathrooms where the previous owners applied a not so lovely venetian plaster...gone horrible wrong! Did you notice I said one of the bathrooms??? Yes ma'am, apparently they liked it so much, they did it to both bathrooms. I'm pretty sure they were legally blind.
Oh heavenly days...the close up makes me want to puke. And sadly, it is even fuglier in person. If they weren't blind, they must have been toasted and wearing blindfolds. This stuff is so thick in some places, it's ridiculous. It sticks way out from the wall... I'm surprised it hasn't put someone's eye out. Oh, and the color...let's not talk about the muddy brown dirt shade that it is.
