Time marches onward and life is busy as usual...oh how I long for it to slow down and allow me to enjoy it even more. We have accomplished a bit more in our lakehouse and so I thought I would share a bit more of that accomplishment. This is how the 1st bedroom looked when we bought the lakehouse. Understand that the house had been unused for 5 years when we visited that day and the owners young sons had been the last to use it...hence the items laying around...lol...boys will be boys.
The ceiling and ceiling fan were ok and they worked but I felt we could do even better.
Believe it or not it was the previous owner's sheets that gave me the idea for the future color in the room. I chose a color at Lowes by Sherwin Williams called Watery for our bedroom. The yellow and white stripes were happy and reminded me of Beverly Hills Perfume but I wanted a look that would be more cooling and soothing to help act as a sort of balm to our souls when we came in...a place of respite from our crazy busy lives.
I had my work cut out for me on this room but there were definitely good bones that I could make use of. The carpet cleaned up nicely, the trims and moulding were great with a little bit of shoe moulding added to the baseboards after I finished painting. The photo below is how the room is at the moment.
It took me a bit of time to find just the right bedding and just the right furniture for the room. The tiny space needed to be maximized as much as possible. I noticed from the moment we stepped into the lakehouse that mice, spiders, centipedes, scorpions, and even more nasties liked to come calling and that is just not going to work for me so I have used tons of caulk, backer rod, sealers, and cement floor repair to eliminate the openings where these critters like to enter. As I work on each part of the lakehouse, I have noticed less and less of the nasties so my plan is working. I have caulked along every seam, crack and crevice in this room.
I didn't add too many decorative items on my hubbies side because he is you know...a man...and you know how that can be at times...best not to push them too much...lol. This allows him space to add whatever contraptions he decides to plug in on his nightstand...lol.
