Unless you don't know Jesus, in which case you will never be able to stop viewing this room for all eternity.For all the non-Baptists out there, the word "room" in the last paragraph could make for a great drinking game! And for those of you who are brave enough to continue reading, let us move on.
Almost everything in our room is handed down from other(usually higher) purposes. In the first picture, you'll see (part of)the ceiling fan in all of its droopy-bladed glory, which originally lived in our living room. I couldn't deal with looking at the saggy blades anymore, and reasoned that in a smaller room we wouldn't be able to tell. The jury's still out on that one. The comforter, from the world-renowned home decor establishment more commonly referred to as Walmart, was originally purchased for our guest bedroom. It never looked very nice in there, either. The bleach-stained tan pillowcase on the right is the only surviving piece of the sheet set we got as a wedding gift. It is our semi-permanent substitute for the other white pillowcase, which I can only assume was sacrificed to appease the dryer gods. It's been MIA for about a year and a half, and I've given up all hope of seeing it again.

house built in 1945 is the diversity of building materials.
So here's our list of "to-do's" for the bedroom:
- Shift the bed to be centered on the window- (after getting Madison to sleep in her crib and then removing the bassinet)
- Replace the bedding
- Refinish the side tables
- Hang curtains
- Find lamps for side tables
- Find rug
- Replace electrical switch/cover
- Repaint gas valve
- Replace closet doorknob
And that's it for now! If you missed my earlier house tours, you should go check out the living room, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the hallway!
I'd love to hear what you think!
