After several weeks of shifting gears in my life I am finally getting around to posting an update. Although, there is not much in the way of decorating or refinishing furniture, I have ventured into working outside of the home and have had little energy or “craving” to take on any home improvement projects here at home.
But this is where I am enjoying a view of the new blooms and Spring sunshine in my limited quiet time.
There is one major change (besides working) that you may find a little strange. I moved our master bedroom to the open step-down family room to your right of this picture. No, it’s not walled off or even private but at night when I lay down I can see the stars through those very windows, it’s beautiful.
Why? Well, I wanted my kids to have their own bedrooms but nobody wanted to sleep in the basement…apparently, neither did I. So we gave up our master suite on the second level for one of our sons to use. Both boys are now upstairs with a master bath right in the middle of their bedrooms. I tell them they are spoiled but they just want me to take them back to Virginia.
The main floor feels like an open loft house. However, our closet and bathroom are not very close by it’s worth the inconvenience because the kids have their own space and, believe me, trying to make them happy has been especially challenging in the last several months (13 year old boys new to town – new to school).
There is no headboard, just my favorite horse canvas. It’s so nice to have our matching black dressers back by each side of the bed. We didn’t have enough room for that in our previous master (here). The fireplace has been really nice too.
When I invite my guests in to have a seat and stay a while, they get to see straight into my bedroom. =/ At least that motivates me to make my bed more often. 🙂
Actually, I did do a little decorating on my blogging break – at least moving furniture. The sofa and chair from this room have moved too – that is another story.
I’ve missed being part of the blog world lately – – – Hoping you are all doing very well.
