Our bedroom the day my husband returned from a 4-day ski trip with friends:
New duvet cover and shams, new side tables, removal of husband's clutter. Not sure why the lamps look funky in this picture..they look the same in real life. And yes, I realize that I need to iron the duvet. But after moving the end tables in my living room up a flight of stairs to act as my new bedside tables, it was hard to stand up and iron with my new hernia.
How did my husband like the fresh, new look?
I can sum that up with my favorite quote coined by the late Grace Hopper: "It is easier to ask forgiveness, than it is to get permission."
I'm not 100% sure, but pretty positive that she coined this phrase while redecorating her house. At least that's what I'm going with.
And none of this would have been possible without inspiration from The Huntress. Despite what my husband says, you are not a bad influence.
Do you know what is a bad influence? Winter in Chicago. We're on the verge of a snowstorm of epic proportion. The snow just started and now all I want to do is pour myself a glass and snuggle up in my new bedroom, which would be fine if it wasn't 3 pm.
Here is the before from my back door.
Stay tuned for the after!
