It's funny how the re-purposing/redecorating of the upstairs space is kind of taking over my life. Here I was in a meeting yesterday and all I could think about was finding the right pink lamp for the top of the book case and deciding on what style of area rug near the bed. It’s a good thing there was paper work from the meeting or I wouldn’t know what the heck was going on.
For years the upstairs has been my little craft space. It has potential to be an amazing master bedroom but we just don’t have the funds to make that happen. So, in the meantime, this space has turned into a scrapbook room/holding-room-for-my-husband’s-difficulty-in-not-wanting-to-let-things-go. When I hear the words “You’re not going to get rid of that, are you?” come from his mouth I know that the item will end up in our space upstairs.
Right now we have a very weird looking carpet up there, a strange 1970’s looking red and black shaggy thing. Red and black??? I’m sure my daughter will want something pink. We need something that can take the twirls of a possible ballerina and the spills of a Fun Dip pack. I’m sure we’ll end up with a Berber carpet, they make them much softer than I remember and they hold up nicely.
I thought I went a bit overboard with a lamp I chose, it has strings of beads in various shades of pink hanging all over the lamp shade accented with pink faux fur along the rims. It looks a tad gaudy. (A tad?!? ) I bought it almost as a joke saying, ‘You want pink? You get pink!’. But she loves it! Go figure.
I have to say I’m having so much fun helping my daughter design this bedroom. I see an area rug stitched (in pink) with the word “Princess” in the very near future.
