Well...I'm struggling with something.
I have spent time cleaning and organizing rooms for the girls this weekend. One room in particular is about the only girly room in this house. It is the original guest room. A little history for you. When we bought this house, we were having guests relatively early, and this room was bare. No furniture. Nothing pretty or welcoming.
Having just bought this place, we were a little tight in the finance department. Still, I wanted my guests to feel welcome. So I really had to put on my creative hat. We bought a bed, and I mean we bought a mattress set and frame. I may have had some old nightstands back in the beginning of this room, but I don't really remember now. I threw some paint on the walls, but it was still sad.
So I did this...
Maybe one of the girls will leave a comment about the process we went through to get this painted on the wall. I don't have time to go into all the crazy details now. I have added furniture to this room over the years, and it really is a nice place to be.
Just one problem though.
I've just recently come into some new furniture. New, really old furniture. It is the Man in Charge's Great-Grandmother's bedroom suit. With the girls gone, I've been kicking around the idea of shuffling some furniture around. That old bedroom suit would fit perfect in this room, but it already has a headboard. A very pretty headboard. I have been pretty resolute in the idea of painting over my creation. I've heard whining and complaining from others, but my mind has been made on this topic.
Until I was in there today.
I'm still gonna do it, but I'm gonna miss this room.
