I am SO HAPPY!! Travis and I have been talking about getting new bedroom furniture for quite some time now and this weekend we FINALLY got it!
It arrived yesterday and I LOVE it but it is a BIG change! All we had in our room before was all my childhood furniture- a long dresser with mirror, our queen size bed and headboard, and a night stand with other little odds and ends, so we had a lot of room still. And now we got it ALL- the dresser with mirror, chest of drawers, bed with head and foot boards, and two night stands. It is A LOT in the room because it is pretty dark and the room isn’t super large, so it is a big change every time I walk in there.

Travis is just THRILLED that he finally gets a dresser and night stand because I never gave up any room in the dresser before. Is that a bad wife? Not in my book-hehe! I also have a slight fear of if it will all fit into our next house because we won’t be here long before we are off and moving again so I guess we’ll have to see what happens when that time comes.

But here is our room before.

These pictures were taken right after we moved in, hence the boxes. We put up curtains shortly after this picture and then I eventually added stuff to the wall.

And here is our room now with our new furniture.

It all fit… barely. We pretty much had to put it in this arrangement because of all the doors and windows throughout the room. The bed and nightstands JUST fit on the wall they are on since there is the wall that juts into the room because of the stairs.

Here is our headboard. The foot board has the same panels on it.

Travis’ new chest of drawers which he is thrilled about!

My new dresser.

And here is a farther shot of the bed and nightstands.

Since we have this new furniture, I am now itching to re-do the WHOLE room now. I have been having this urge for new curtains and bedspread for a while but now it is in full gear. Here are just a few things I would like to do.

-New curtains
-New comforter
-Move those wall sconces that look so itty bitty now that some things in the room has been rearranged.

-Paint our hampers a darker color since they stick out like a sore thumb among the dark furniture.
-Moved that picture.
-And get rid of that bench. Travis used it to store his t-shirts before having a dresser and our dear cat used it as a scratching post so all of the rope that was wrapped around it is gone and it looks bad! I guess we could try to paint it or something but I don’t really want it in here any more!

Some of these changes will just have to wait for a little bit until we get some of this furniture paid off. But hopefully, I can slowly make changes and of course I will share what I do.

Happy Wednesday!

    I'm visiting from Progress Party 🙂

    Nice furniture choice! It feels current but classic, furniture you'll be able to keep for a long time. And the other changes you have planned are going to be great – good job!
