table magic…

You know the old saying, “Doctor, heal thyself.”? Well, I think I’ve got a case of talking and not doing. I sit in my office chair and write my little blog posts about la belle vie, but I’m don’t take my own bossy advice.

If you walked into my bedroom, you would alternate between laughing and crying. It’s a cacophony of styles, furniture, and junk. So, this weekend, I’m puttin’ my money where my mouth is and beginning a mission to transform my sad sanctuary (shhhh…nobody tell Mark…he’s afraid of falling off his wallet…love you, honey).

I know, I know, I always recommend starting your design project with fabrics, but I’m breaking that rule. I’m starting with my bedside tables, because, frankly, they’re flat out annoying. The orange stain on the wood is uuuuugly, and the pulls are, well, let’s just say it…STUPID!

So I’m starting to look for the color that I want to paint the tables. I love the look of this Pottery Barn bedroom (blues & reds together are just wonderful).

  1. The blue and red room is truly fantastic. It’s such a vibrant and trendy combination. Have you noticed the thinest black fames on the mirrors: they give it just enough definition.
    I notice the same in my family: for a long time the Master Bedroom was the most neglected room. Parents always do other things properly: kitchen, bathroom, childrens’ rooms. Mummy’s and Daddy’ s bedroom: let’s do it properly later. Great that you decided to sort it out. Ewa@LoveSmokeyEyes

  2. I love those blues! Jennifer, I can’t wait to see the “reveal”. I won’t tell Mark either. Shhh.
    Have a lovely long weekend!
