Oh hi Monday.
How did you sneak up on me?!
This weekend was incredibly productive, but before I knew it, it had passed me by. Don't you hate that? I'm so not ready to tackle the week ahead.
Part of the weekend productivity included continuing our bedroom progress (cue the party horns!). I'm so excited to be on a roll with finishing our bedroom. As you may recall, we decided to go with three of these pretty HOPEN dressers from Ikea:
We plan for these to take up most of the wall opposite the bed. And since I cannot wait to get organizing, I picked up a few storage inserts from Ikea, you know, for organizing socks and other unmentionables inside the drawers.
And while we're on the subject, I couldn't neglect that I have a large, untapped space in my bedroom...under the bed! I picked up two of these storage boxes for under the bed. I'm thinking that these could easily house additional, out of season clothing or shoes, or even our extra linens when they aren't in use. I'm so digging this toile-ish pattern. Such a departure from our modern theme we have going on in there!
So this week Shaun is on a mission to assemble the dressers. Though he tried to convince me that I needed to be involved, that was quickly dispelled :)
Meanwhile, I'm dreaming of a few other upgrades to finish the bedroom, like adding a super tall tufted headboard (I love this one from West Elm)...
I think it would look so beautiful with our white and navy duvet, light greige walls and bright yellow and burnt orange pillows!
So that's where we are this week. I hope to have a few 'after' photos for you next Monday of our new dressers, all set up and organized...stay tuned!
