The one room I think I've mastered is our bedroom. We got black furniture (to please him) in a matching oversized set (to please me). We bought a beautiful subtle teal colored bedding set and a puffy down comforter with a matching duvet cover. I have two clear stacked globe lamps with black lampshades and an armoire for my necessary television. There are a couple of green plants in the room to bring some life to the room. We painted the walls a muted blue-green color to blend with the bedding. I'm quite happy with how it's turned out. I have to say, appropriately enough, I think it's the most relaxing space in our home. Now if only I could get the rest of the house figured out.
vanity in my bedroom. You know the kind you see on TV and in movies where every evening beautiful women diligently brush their hair. Before parties, they put on their jewelry and makeup there. I can see my daughter looking on as I'm grooming myself for my glamorous life. All kidding aside, I found one that would go great with my bedroom furniture though I'd have to figure out where to put it.
www.justvanities.com, one of CSN's 200+ Stores. There's also some really cute kids vanities that I could see Monkey girl enjoying as she got older.
dog crate end table from CSN Stores which I think will work perfectly in my living room as it'll save space and it looks great. Then maybe we'll have more room in our living area without the eyesore of a large wire dog crate taking up room. I had hoped it'd get here before I did this post, but it should be here soon and I'll update as soon as I get it. One of the great things about CSN Stores is that nearly all their items have free shipping including my oversized purchase.
Onto some more exciting news, CSN Stores has been gracious enough to let me offer another giveaway. This time it's for a $40 gift certificate for you to use as you please at any of their numerous stores. There are so many great things to be found at their sites. I found some All Clad cookware, children's water tables, fire pits, and more that I've bookmarked for possible future purchases.
