While Scott dreams of jack-hammering tile and completing big projects, I focus on the details needed to complete things. I just want to complete a room at a time. It is the way I can measure progress. So far, we have really only completed the guest bathroom. But we are close on a few others. For instance, our bedroom. We have upholstered a bench for the end of our bed. We have made an upholstered headboard. There is a fresh coat of paint in the room and bright curtains. Now I focus on two more “needs.”
One is a quilt for the end of the bed. Scott gets cold all the time and I wake up sweating. So a quilt is our remedy. And I wanted it to be pretty.
I found this awhile ago and it finally went on sale.
I think it fits nicely in our room.
The second “need” is artwork above the bed. This “need” might need to wait awhile. I am inspired by the picture that Erika (of Urban Grace) hung above her bed. I pretty much like everything Erika does. And I speak about her like I know her, but really, she is a blogger/designer that I copy and feel like I know.
The problem is that I have about 27 inches between the top of my headboard and the bottom of the crown molding. So I need something long and skinny. I talked to the artist who painted the picture above (Tastes Orangey) and a custom size original is a little out of my price range for now. But some day.
Details will come. One by one!
