We bought curtains for our bedroom about a month ago, and of course, in true Wagner fashion, never got around to hanging them up. They are just the white Room Essentials curtains from Target, but they were on clearance and we got four 84 inch panels for $25.
We have valences and blinds up (valences that we made, and the wood blinds came with the house) but as we have one pane of glass, and no storm blocking us and the Michigan winter, it is cold. as. balls. in our bedroom. Luckily, in a few weeks we are going to have some sexy new windows put in (again, we'll discuss with the roof), but for now we are going to save our skin by adding an extra layer in.
I think it's also added a layer of visual warmth to our master. I'm finding that this room is getting cushier and more lovely the more layers I put in. I was also missing the bright beautiful white that we had going on. Back in December we purchased a brown duvet cover to try and extend the life expectancy on our white comforter that was getting abused by our 3
Here's what the master looked like in November.
And here's what it looks like today.
And I promise I'll iron the damn things eventually. My iron was being stupid.
The 84 inch curtains just dust the floor, which I love. And, because they went under the valences we were able to get $1 plastic curtain rods instead of pretty ones. Not like anyone is going to see the rod anyway!
According to the internet, Nate and I don't even have a dresser! That just can not do. So here is our dresser, just to prove we have one.
I got this dresser right after Nate and I started dating off of Craigslist for $15. It is solid maple, and it only took sanding and a fresh coat of stain to get rid of the cat pee stench. From this view you can also see our second window and that nook we were talking about with the shelves.
Where the dresser is was actually a really lucky, meant to be, type situation. Our dresser fits between the nook and the window within a 1/4 of an inch.
Nate and I are hunting for a piece of art to hang over the dresser, but I'm being very picky.
If you're laying in the bed and looking out the door to the hallway, we have the mirror that came with the dresser hung up on the wall. Call me weird, I think it's way easier to put liquid eyeliner on when the mirror is within three inches of your face and not two feet away over a dresser. It is of course terrible to photograph back into the dark cave...
And as an update, we are loving our hung up sconces from IKEA. With our nightstands being so small it is so nice to not waste space on a lamp base.
How was everyone's weekend? Did you guys do anything awesome?
