Okay. Enough woe-is-me talk, let's get down to business. The next room on the docket: The Canopy Bedroom.
Of all the rooms in our farmhouse, this bedroom gets the most spectacular morning light. If I had my way, we'd be sleeping in here, but sadly, once we realized there were only radiators in two of the bedrooms, it seemed like the natural choice to sleep in one of those instead, so we weren't needlessly heating a room with nobody in it... Alas. Practicality can be a downer.
And ta-da! Now it looks like this! The walls are painted Benjamin Moore's Healing Aloe #1562 (I know. I'm a broken record) and it's pretty darn cute. We've still got a couple more projects in the works for this room-- I just picked up this fantastic pair of antique brass goose-neck/swing-arm sconces and John has promised me that we'll get them installed over the next couple of weekends.
Then there is also my on-going to desire to wallpaper this room, but I think we're still a fair ways from doing that, because wallpaper is just too freaking expensive. I'm bummed out actually. I have fantasies of wallpapering the staircase, the downstair's bathroom, and this bedroom, but all of those lofty plans are on hold until I win the lottery or earn a lot more money. I guess that's how the cookie crumbles... If you spend four months in France, don't be surprised if you don't have enough money for wallpaper when you get back. C'est la vie!
I'll just cross my fingers for the lottery in the meantime.
