It has been so much easier for me to focus on one room at a time with this move. And, I have mentioned several times that we are now working on getting our bedroom put together. When I say “put together,” I mean decorated and organized. When we moved in December, we plopped our bed and a few other pieces in this room and haven’t touched it since. If you missed it, we got a new rug for this space and I love it. It brings so much warmth in here and matches the headboard we flipped perfectly. That rug sparked my creativity to keep the ball rolling. We bought a couple of chairs that were on major sale at Walmart. One is here by the sliding door and the other is beside the fireplace, which I will be sharing soon. I worked on that yesterday. Anyway, I wanted to share this cozy corner in the bedroom today because I love how it turned out.
As you can see in the top picture, it will be a little cozier soon. There is supposed to be a light hanging over this spot. We want an antique chandelier, so we have our eyes peeled for the perfect one. That will really bring up the cozy factor.
I added a sisal rug in front of the doorway that we had in the cottage. I decided that I wanted some type of plant stand in front of the side of the stationary sliding door. So, I used this little high chair that I have had for over 30 years. It used to be green. And, I remember stripping it when I was in my early 20s. Oh the memories! I added an old chippy block of wood to it for height for my artificial fern that looks so dang real. (Use code DANDD10 for 10% off of anything on the site.) And, of course, every chair needs a pillow or two. I grabbed these last year on Amazon. They are a creamy white color and add a lot of texture with the embroidery.
For the best part… we added a stained glass window to this cozy corner in the bedroom. It not only brings some color into this space, but it looks so pretty when the sunlight hits it. I will never forget when we bought this window. We were walking into our favorite flea market in Springfield, OH, years ago. I saw it at the very first booth we stopped at. It was marked $100 so I asked if he would take $75. He did… and we started out our shopping experience that year with the first sale at the first booth.
This stained glass window isn’t in perfect shape as it has a few cracks in the glass, but that never bothers me. It’s worn and tattered just like it’s owner. Ha!
We have a bit more to add to this room before I call it done and move on to the dining room. But, I think it’s coming along pretty nicely. It feels fabulous to get this room put together and organized.
