Last night, B and I headed to IKEA (we have one dangerously close to our home... we're talking a 5 minute drive) to pick up what we thought would be the perfect overhead cabinets for my laundry room. WRONG! They were far to shallow, so that hunt continues. We did, however, end up coming home with four curtain panels and two curtain rods to tackle the closet / window corner of our "new" master bedroom.
I felt that having two curtain panels over the closet, and two over the window would be the perfect solution (anything would be better than the one, waffled, too short panel that the previous owners had left hanging over the window for us...). We picked the IKEA Ransby curtains in this nice smokey blue colour, that perfectly matches our Dwell Studio duvet cover.
The panels are more than long enough (will probably even require some hemming), and they are nice and heavy as well. To get them up on the wall we purchased two SKUGGIG curtain rods in an ivory colour. What I liked about these, is we should be able to get them to meet nice and closely in the corner of the room, to avoid any gaps between the panels.
I very briefly considered this blue colour, before realizing it would not match anything we had previously picked out for the room, so we went with the Ivory instead. It will look far more stylish in our room than our current clunky black digital one (that I've had since my freshman year of University). It will take up far less space, and I'm thrilled that it takes batteries so there will be no cords snaking around next to our bed.
We're hoping that this weekend there will be some ACTUAL progress in getting the room together. B and I plan on putting some built in "night stands" on either side of our bed to utilize the space in our slanted walls and avoid taking up any more room in our rather small bedroom. If we can get those in, and the walls and ceiling painted by the end of this long weekend, we'll be in a good spot! Do you have any plans to tackle projects at home this long weekend, or are you looking forward to taking it easy with family and/or friends?
Just incase you are wondering later this afternoon, with things being so nuts around here, there is no Perfectly Imperfect room to share this afternoon. I should be back next Thursday with a new space to share with you!
