Spare Bedroom – Befores

Shut up, spell check, “befores” is TOTALLY a word. It means there will be several “before” pictures in this post! No, I’m not going to say “Before Pictures” in the title – too many words! People hate words! People only want pictures! THEY WANT BEFORES…

Room Layout:

Spare Bedroom - Befores | The Wilson BuzzThis is the view when you first walk into the room from the hallway. YES IT’S MESSY. But no furniture! That should make it easier to organize, right?? This door opens slant-ways for whatever reason. We’re just fancy like that.

The other bedroom (future nursery) is that door you can just barely see, and the bathroom is to the left, between the two bedrooms. Oh, and in the corner is the chair I want to go into the reading nook. Anyway, this is the wall I want to put the guest book wall art gallery thing.

Furniture:

Spare Bedroom - Befores | The Wilson BuzzThis is the bed. I didn’t bother to make it, and there is a cup on top of it. You’ll survive. It’s metal, and was painted green back when we lived on East Street, to match our paint job there. Oh, fun fact – that was during the great cicada plague that comes every seven (or was that the fourteen?) years. Mr. T actually brought a freshly-spawned cicada into the house with the frame! It was very traumatizing!! You can see the lamps to either side of it. Do you want a close-up? I THINK YOU WANT A CLOSE-UP.

It’s red because Mama N had used them as part of her Christmas decor, not because we like to murder people and need mood lighting to do it. Although…


Spare Bedroom - Befores | The Wilson BuzzHere is the lovely dresser. See why I want to paint it? It’s just particle board, and was given to us for free by some poor sap. It wasn’t well-made to begin with, and age has done nothing to improve it. I definitely think painting it, if nothing else, won’t make it any worse.
