I finally took pictures of my new bedroom set from IKEA! I am really happy with how it turned out. I think it makes the room look much larger.
The mirror really adds a nice touch, I think. For Christmas, we're hoping to get a new flat screen TV for the bedroom. Right now, (you can see in the reflection in the mirror) our current TV is on one of our old nightstands. The new TV will be mounted from the wall.
My next project will be the "guest" bedroom. I'm planning to paint our old mismatched furniture white. This includes a dresser and the two end tables. Then I want to buy new hardware, so that they look more like a set. I also need to buy a new queen mattress and new bedding for that room. The IKEA bed only requires a mattress, so I currently have our old box spring sitting on the frame with no mattress! Its funny! I haven't chosen bedding yet, but we do have a gift certificate to Crate & Barrel that I can try to use.
Labor Day weekend will (hopefully) include lots of painting and B and me organizing our third bedroom/office. Right now its a complete mess! I might post before and after pictures of the office. Its really embarrassing right now. I will most definitely post pictures when its all organized! I will also post before and after "guest" room pictures!
Everyone is commenting on how much they love my mirror. I love it too, and I really love the fact that it was $99.00!!!
