Why is it that the smallest person in our family has the most complete bedroom? My answer: she didn’t need any new furniture, so it was the cheapest and easiest to finish.
In order to appreciate where we are today we have to take a look at where we have been. I can’t bring myself to call this the “after” of the before and after because spaces are always evolving, so there is no end, no finished, no “Welp, now I’m done!” I digress. As I was saying, first we have the before:
This is the view standing in the doorway to the room. Come on, don’t you love the mauve?
This is Maggie’s closet door.
Now, that’s much better!
We pulled up the carpet, and hired a company to refinish the original floors underneath. (If you are local and you want their number, you let me know!) The walls are Sherwin Williams “Sagey”. I made the curtains with fabric I found and JoAnn’s. That dresser was mine in the townhouse where our master bedroom was much larger. Eventually Maggie will have a white day bed or twin to go with it. The art is almost all from the townhouse, I just decided to hang it together instead of spreading it all out, one piece here, one there.
This is the new view of Maggie’s closet. That bow organizer (not that she is really needing bows yet) is an idea I got from Jill at Baby Rabies a while ago. It’s simple and clever and if you have a glue gun, you can do it.
