Seeing Double

So, after a very long wait. We finally have two bedside lamps, we’ve spent the last five months with only one. The long story has to do with a second lamp that arrived damaged and had to be returned, a miscommunication about a backordered (and then out of stock) item from Macy’s. Finally we opted to go with a different seller and purchased lamp number two from HomeClick.com. The original ship date was bumped back two weeks but finally the lamp arrived. It matches lamp numero uno, we finally have two bedside lamps in our room, and I am one happy lady. Now we just need some color in that room. It’s looking kind of vanilla right now (even though our bedding is Sea Spray, it’s not showing up that way in this photo).

Since we are talking about decorations in the bedroom, lets see what else we have in store…

The next item we are waiting to receive is a second bedside rug that is being delivered by West Elm next week. For the time being we are pretty happy with the one side rug that we have. {Mentioned previously in this post}.

And a close up so you can see how fluffy and cozy it is:

And while I was photographing this I realized that our bed is missing something…


a bed skirt. Since our bed is raised up on these bed lifts I have visions of making an extra long bed skirt to cover the box spring and the legs/lifters. Add that to the project list.

Oh and notice those two items taped to the wall in the photo in the upper right?

Paint samples. They have been taped up on the wall for the better part of three months now. And I think we settled on the paint color within the first week. From the top counting down, I think we are going with number 5. It’s called Gravity, and is a light bluish-greenish gray. I think these exact paint chips are from Lowes but I want to color match it with a low-VOC paint at Home Depot, since that is the closer store. I’ll keep you posted on what that ends up looking like, I’m excited for our first indoor painting project.

Oh and another project for this room is way way (WAY) far down on the list of things to do but a girl can dream. I’ve been pining (and pinning) away at all the images I’ve seen on Pinterest for a….sliding barn door. I thought one would be a perfect fit to cover Husband’s closet door.

Can you picture it?? We could get rid of the door that’s there now since it spends 99% of the time wide open and taking up space, and replace it with something like this…

I’m picturing our painted gray walls, some DIY art, DIY headboard, some colorful accent pillows, a bench at the end of the bed like this, and possibly a dark teal door? The possibilities are endless.

Here’s the pallet I’m thinking, but more turquoise.
