Bedknobs and Broomsticks

In CategoryNavel Gazing

Today, the 4 Moms are inviting people to join them in talking about bedrooms. I LOVE looking at pictures of other people’s houses. I get every furniture and decorating catalog known to man, and my late-night fantasies often involve winning the lottery and redecorating my house to within an inch of it’s life (much to my husband’s disappointment). One of my favorite blogs is Catalog Living, and I recognize every single picture and could name the catalog it came from. I want to live in those pictures.

So I can’t resist the opportunity to join in this sort of bloggy activity. I have taken some pictures of the kids’ bedrooms, which are cute;¬†and not the master bedroom, which isn’t. Plus also, I don’t know if I am strong enough to move the gigantic pile of laundry that inhabits our bed all the time.

Little’s Room – The color is not showing up very well, it’s actually the same green that’s in the shade, not yellow. And pink – lots and lots of pink.

Big’s Room – with a headboard I made myself so we could put his bed up against the built-in bookcase. Somewhere online I found construction bedding (there’s a cute comforter for when it’s not eighteen-thousand degrees) AND matching wallpaper decals, which are each individual pieces that I¬†painstakingly put up, one by one.

So there you have it. Don’t think the rest of our house is as neat and coordinated at these rooms are – there’s a reason I am posting these pictures and not ones of the hovel I affectionally refer to as our bedroom.

I know these pictures are not great – our camera is crap. I have been lobbying for a new one, but Frugal Deb is a tough nut to crack.
