This week, we are sharing our bedrooms. Some are sharing master bedrooms and some are sharing kids' bedrooms and some are sharing ALL bedrooms. Next week will be "Bedrooms - Part 2", and the following weeks will be
- Storage solutions
Here is where I tell you that we have too much stuff and not enough room, and our bedrooms are where we hide store the things we wish to keep out of the way, so they are mostly the messiest places in our house, and I hope you'll still like me when I admit that these pictures were taken AFTER I had tidied up.
I would also like to warn you that there are little to no wall hangings, window treatments, and other such decorations because when we moved into this house almost two years ago, it was under the assumption that it would be a temporary rental property that we would be vacating as soon as our previous house sold. I kept thinking that any day we would get the phone call from our realtor that we should start packing up, because we could go ahead with the purchase of our very own home since the previous house was no longer holding us back.
Aaaaaaaand almost two long years later, we are still waiting for that to happen.
So, if you will, just let the bare walls and windows be a symbol of hope. Yeah... that's what they are. Hope.
And the clutter can be a symbol of... a ... creative mind. Yes, that's a good one. Creative.
Here we have the view from our bedroom door. I keep thinking I'll buy new bedding, but then something else comes up that needs buying, like bread or milk or gas, so the bedding stays.
Here you can see my dresser, the computer desk, Peyton's clothes, and the changing table, which is really nothing more than a Rubbermaid computer desk with a changing pad on it.
Here is some ironing that needs doing, Peyton's cradle, and my husband's dresser. The 8 year old has decided she should keep her piggy bank collection up there and since no one can think of a better place, there they are.
Here is a closer view of Peyton's cradle. My Pawpaw made this with his own hands several years before he died, and all eight of my children have begun their lives here. He also made a baby doll cradle that is an exact replica of this, which has held many a baby doll. I absolutely LOVE that I have this remembrance of him!
