This weekend we finished the trim work in the closet of the guest room, and for some reason I got inspired to try the bed on the other wall. OH MY GOD, it’s like a whole different space. Seriously, why did I not think this placement would work?! I swear we measured it and thought about it a million times. I have no idea why we rejected it before.
I’m not exactly sure what was happening here, but you can see despite the insane glow from the window (it was sunny as hell on Sunday) that moving the bed really opened things up in here. Despite the dresser being right in front of you as you walk in. Trust me, it works in person.
Since we don’t have a comforter in here yet (note to self: still need to order that) we’ve been using the bed as temporary storage for in-progress pieces of various projects. Also K left some pants in here. Moving on.
Here K is hanging a Doctor Who dyptich (actually two separate prints, but whatev) I gave him a few years ago. It’s been sitting on the piano for something like two years, waiting to find a home.
K also hung these two occasional shelves and we populated them with some of our many gewgaws. These shelves have been forgotten in the basement for the past five years and K unearthed them during our recent purge of crap we don’t need. Yay for crap we can actually use!
K picked up this poster at the Lob ages ago and it, too, has been leaning on the piano. He’ll get a frame for it and it will go on this wall. Aesthetically I think we could even use a larger piece on this wall, but I’m somewhat paranoid about putting something too big on the wall that anyone sleeping here might bump their head on as they sit up. Maybe it’s just me who regularly sits up from a dead sleep, all weirded out?
Here’s the view of the hatch wall with the dresser centered at the foot of the bed. We rehung the old door until we get a new one, which is just dependent on arranging to borrow the use of a large enough vehicle to get it home. Which is just dependent on actually asking someone. We’ll get there.
And here’s the much-anticipated trim inside the closet. Finally done! I need to get another one of these shoe racks (or a larger one), as there’s still a laundry basket full of all my other shoes in the library.
We had this portrait of Brodie hanging in here already, but we moved it to the wall by the closet. We’ll get a print made of a portrait of Logan and hang it on this wall, too. Still need to look for better door pulls for the closet.
We have SO VERY MANY action figures, guys, and assorted collectables around the house. I mean, really, it’s kind of ridiculous. So in an attempt to make it seem like something other than one hundred pieces of plastic on the wall, I’m trying to “curate” the crap. Here we have a small collection of skeletons:
We got the big one at the World’s Largest Truck Stop on a roadtrip out to some friends’ wedding a few years ago, and the little guy we picked up at a hobby shop in Florida on a trip to visit K’s mom and grandma one spring. I’m sure we have a bunch of other skeletons around, too, but these were the two that jumped out at me right away. They will sit on the dresser in here.
