In between reading up on psychoanalysis and vacuuming every square inch of my house to deal with an apparent flea problem I found the time this weekend to sketch up a quick diagram of our master bedroom. Behold:
As a reader suggested, I think I’m going to put everything except the bed back where it was. And I’m going to keep my eye out for a pair of small round tables to use as nightstands–I’m thinking something metal to break up all the wood in here. And I would love to get a large rug to anchor the space. Maybe this one? I think I like the bed in the corner because it just feels like a better use of the space. It’s hard to describe, but the room just felt “off” before. Maybe it’s feng shui or something. Also, the bed-in-corner layout offers the distinct advantage of providing hidden storage space behind the headboard! We don’t have any attic storage so bulky seasonal decor and long term storage have always posed a special challenge for us. With the bed arranged this way I could pile that corner up with outgrown baby gear I’m not ready to part with and no one would be the wiser.
So now I’m on the hunt for a pair of nightstands. I know the frugal thing would be to keep my eyes peeled at the thrift store, estate sales, etc., but I’m feeling impatient and may splurge for something online if I can find what I’m looking for at a good price (and by “splurge” I mean maybe I’d spend $100 for the pair, and that would be pushing it).
Thanks for reading, y’all. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
