Unplugged: The Bedroom

This is my new sleeping space. It's substantially smaller than my other bedroom. As you can see, Buster has adapted. The ceiling fan was the only thing that I  purchased when I swapped spaces. The room doesn't have the airflow that my other bedroom has, so a ceiling fan was a necessity. I decided to keep the Capricorn picture in my bedroom since it ties in with the Palace Portrait quite well. The wardrobe is massive and ordinarily I would have thought the scale wrong for such a small space, but because of its reflective doors it works well. The wardrobe actually helps to enclose the sleeping area a bit and contributes to the coziness factor. As evident in the pictures, I still have wall patching to do. I'm also planning on hanging wall hooks to the right of the window so I'll have a place to hang my clothes before I get in bed.

I'm finally painting the base to my cutting table. This is a project that's been nagging me for a while. The red and yellow combination was hurting my eyes. Dismantling the table means displacing all of the books that the base holds, so I put it off for sanity's sake. Since I had to take the table apart to move it to its new location, I decided now is the time to paint.  Even with one sloppy coat it looks a thousand times improved.

I'm still trying to restore order after switching out my bedroom and office/sewing room. It's something I've been considering for months but didn't want to deal with the turmoil. Turned out to be a good move. Details soon.
