It was nice and lasted, but just wasn't "us". We did it in a hurry. Picked the first thing in our price range and went with it.
About 5 years ago, we upgraded our lounge room into something more us. The hand-me-down couch had seen better days, and the new couch didn't match the hand-me-down TV cabinet.
I was content with our bedroom until last year. Our old bed was solid wood. I hated having a bed end. I hated it's dark colours. I needed a change. I wanted it to be more "us".
So, in a spur moment, I listed our bedroom setting on ebay.
And people bit. Hard. I ended up getting more than what I had hoped for the 4 piece setting. Enough to buy our new bed.
And so the makeover started.
Brett's only request was that he could have a little writing corner.
And I think I delivered.
I am totally in love with my Instagram poster.
Brett's Marble inlay desk I picked up for a steal on ebay. It was a horrible painted brown. And the red chair... $10! It was a horrible yellowy/white colour.
Brett's clock and "Keep Calm" print - both Etsy.
His pen containers are actually plant pots from Ikea - and at $3.99 each they make him happy!
And of course, the gloss red Expedit with legs - from Ikea. The white pot on the right holds computer things - Brett's USB's, headphones, spare hard drives etc. The clear plastic box holds his note pads, disks and other writing materials. I plan to replace this... one day... when I can find a WHITE box (Ikea only have a white basket... and it just wouldn't look right!)
A bedroom can never have too many candles.
I love our new space. No kids allowed.
Well... ok... night time snuggles are not encouraged, but won't be denied.
