Our problem: Our bedroom is too big.
This might not seem like a problem at first, but when you get down to decorating and living in it- our bedroom is just too big.
I will show you what I am talking about and then we will see if you all can be as helpful with my bedroom problem as you were with my table.
This is what the bedroom looked like previously:
And now it looks like this:
See the Ikea rug? And the cute doggie? And the awesome drapes from my mother? Oh, be sure to go back and look at the curtains again (sorry for the sun- the blinds were drawn- stupid Colorado desert sun).
After seeing all the empty curtain rods in the Realtor pictures (as seen above) when my parents came for Thanksgiving my mother packed in a huge bag of all her extra curtains. I guess Mom has a phobia of empty curtain rods. I believe the tan ones in our room are from a comforter set my parents' bought but had no use for. My grandmother made the white sheer ones long, long ago. How cool is that?
Anyway, back on track. Just for kicks, here is the view from our window. A peek-a-boo view of the mountains.
Here is our closet. Long and skinny. A problem for another day.
And here is the weird space.
The little indent when the mirror and boxes of frames and decorations are being stored is only like 2' deep. And see the edge of the double doors our bedroom on the right? When you open them up, second door squishes into the weird space.
I have toyed around with putting a desk in there for scrapping- but that is messy (rather- I am messy). Or having a fainting couch- but those are expensive and I don't usually wear corsets. In addition- I subscribe to the idea that bedrooms have one purpose and one purpose only- sleeping (we'll just leave it at that- keep it G-rated). So I don't really want to add another activity (fainting or scrapping) to the area. Maybe napping? You got any better ideas?
