There were some things in my master bedroom plan that I had planned on doing from the beginning, but needed to wait to save up a little more cash and take the time to search for just the right thing.
Here’s the before. I’ve been wanting to swap out our 30 year old blue recliner for awhile. It’s super comfy, but not very pretty anymore. I loved it so much that I even thought about custom slip covers. When these Ikea chairs showed up on Craigslist for pennies on the dollar we swooped them up. This room might not be their forever home, but for now we like how they blend with our other pieces and how comfy they are. It was cheaper and faster than a slip cover.
The foot blanket also adds some pop of color to warm the space up. On the left, you can see my great-grandmother’s dresser. It was in my closet and made that space cramped. It’s working better out here, but is temporary. When we do our master bathroom remodel, we are planning on some closet systems that will make dressers unnecessary. I’ll keep the dresser, because it’s beautiful and sentimental, but I have new plans for it.
I also added some pillows, a hunk of pink quartz/granite and the stump table we talked about yesterday.
My goal is to make it feel comfy and cozy without getting cluttered. Cluttered is very personal. To some this space is already on the cusp, but it’s just the right balance for me. I only have one more thing to add, a big piece of art for over the bed. I plan to paint it myself, but I’m not an artist. So I am procrastinating :).
