Gaining Inches In The Bedroom...


Oh - get your mind out of the gutter!

This isn't that kind of blog, people!

...............................................


We have suddenly acquired a new piece of furniture and it has spurred on a new layout for the bedroom...

an extra 30 inches of usable space, to be exact!


Not one's for taking the easy route, we've been slaving away trying to fit together all of the pieces. One thing has led to another (as is the case with most of our makeover's) and the chain reaction is leading us, not only to a better functioning room, but a look that we like even better than the last...



The Before:

(notice how the bed is very close to the left wall)




And...

The During:

I'm not about to call it "the after" because we still have a ways to go...


Once we're finished, I'll show you how it all turned out and the reason that this change is taking place. I'll show you the layout of the room and how what were once obstacles within the room have now become opportunities for thinking outside of the box. Most importantly, you'll see how 30 inches made such a tremendous difference in the bedroom!




P.S. I finally have pictures from the wedding! I'll be posting about the half-time show complete with lederhosen soon! You won't want to miss it!

OMG! I can't believe your title! Ahhh, I needed a good laugh :).

I can't wait to see your finished bedroom. I'm loving the new layout.

Interesting. I wonder what will end up in the frame above the bed????

Becky said...

K, so this is funny... I fell in LOVE with your frame above the "pre" bed and have been thinking, since you posted, where I could put something like that. Still working on that. But in the mean time, just last week, I did a brown frame with blue inside. I put a strip of fabric on the top for some texture.. but how funny. Anyway... LOL

really nice--it is a big improvement. It is funny how one thing leads to another and with me it mulitplies to other rooms. One of my bedrooms needs a bed move too!

I can't wait to see how it all turns out. I have a very awkward Master Bedroom layout and I'm hoping your makeover will give me some inspiration!
