Finished hutch and bedroom project

Here is the finished project I have added my pretties, I am still not 100% happy with it, I am still considering getting the sandpaper out and giving it a rub at the sides. What do you think?

I still may rearrange my pretties again :)


This week is Glen and my anniversary, but he will be away for work this week so we are going to celebrate it on Sunday or Monday. I am planning to do our room up as part of his anniversary gift while he is away. He has no idea that I am going to do this.

Here are some photos of what our room looks like now. Please excuse the mess hubby was packing and I did not get the bed made and the kids have been in with toys and stuff.

So this is what I am thinking, I was going to paint the bed and chest of draws white. I promised my dad that I would never paint the desk white. It is quite old and in great condition still has a working ink well. The desk I put all my hubby's papers etc. I am thinking of re-arranging the room. I am keeping my eye out for new bedside tables, either a matching one to the one I am using or 2 new ones. (I do have a matching one to the one Glen is using the kids are using it at the moment, I am happy to paint them white)

I hate the curtains and am planning on making or buying new ones but not sure what type if I should go for one colour or have 2 layers or flowers????? The bedside lamps will need to be replaced sometime and I need to find somewhere for all the books. Oh and the bedspread, I was thinking for now I would maybe get some lace to cover it until I get a new one. What do you girls think any ideas would be great.

I am also open to swapping furniture around I have other chairs I can swap with the one I have in the corner.

I forgot to add this little area above the door, I am trying to work out what to put here, I have thought about little birdcages, mini shoes and heaps of other things but just can not decide. All of the children's rooms also have this space and I have decorated it with letters of their name, Mikayla has ballerina's.

Hi sweetie! The hutch is beautiful! I love it!!

And for the bedroom, I totally agree! White funiture is fabulous and really lightens up a room! I like the idea of lace too for the bed! I recently went with a solid color of curtain with lace on top in my bedroom. I am really loving it because I can always change the bedding and the drapes will still match! I know whatever you do will be beautiful! I cant wait to see it finished :)

Happy Anniversary too!!!!!

Love ya,

Hi Bek,
the hutch looks great, I think distressing it would really make it look cool. I can't wait to see what you do in the bedroom. When I am redoing a room, I pour myself into decorating magazines until I get in inspiration. Good luck.

Hi Bek,
If I could I would bring one over but I think it's a little too far. How are your bedroom redo ideas coming? Thanks for the comment about my quilt. I absolutely love it.

I like that you showed your bed room in its lived in state. We all try to show things when it is perfect but that is just not reality. I found you on another blog. I am new to blog land too. Nice to meet you! I will have to check out your goodies on ebay.
