Bedroom Update

August 11, 2015

One of my biggest complaints about our current apartment is that I don’t think our bedroom feels grown up. This is partly because we have very little space, our bedroom doubles as an office and our closet isn’t exactly big enough to contain all of our my clothes. I’ve spent the last year or so convincing Adam that updating our furniture and bedding would help fix this. We didn’t bring anything from California when we moved that we were particularly attached to, so last year we began the process of changing things up, adding some color, and making the space feel a little more adult.

Matching end tables had been a request of mine for years (literally) and Adam’s response was generally that he “didn’t want to spend money on something he could make” (right). About 6 months ago he brought home some chairs from work he wanted to update and use as tables and we agreed to give them a try with the caveat that if they didn’t work out we could go to the store and buy, not make, an alternative. Who won? Take a peek below. Better luck next time, lover.
