Not much to show in this room yet, but I’m sure it’ll come together just in time.
We’ll Christopher will paint and hang curtains soon, and that’s about all I asked for pre-baby. A few months ago, my mother-in-law asked if we wanted “this old beat-up dresser” of hers. It spent a few decades in my husband’s old bedroom, and I squealed with delight when the boys unloaded it at the farmhouse.
These days, I’m trying to be intentional about maintaining a bedroom free of clutter. Walking into a peaceful, clean space does wonders for my mood! This dresser holds me accountable, as I only allow my daily jewelry to live on top. I reserved the top drawer for my other pieces, as well as wayward hair accessories and other junk that make their way into a mother’s possession throughout the day.
Someday, I’d like to have the two armoires in our room stained to match this piece. But I hear wood staining is a beast of an art, and we’ve already established that an artist I am not. For now, I’ll just pretend that everything else in the room is as beautiful as Grandma’s dresser!
