We are planning to move properly next weekend. We still have just under 3 weeks left on our tenancy but I’m wanting to go sooner rather than later so that I can get everything straight and our old house tidied ready to give the keys back.
I’ve been busy sorting what I want in every room and my husband has set to the decorating but the one room I haven’t really given much thought to is our bedroom. Of course the kids rooms were the first I sorted but I realised we haven’t really made any effort to sort our room.
Our bedroom will be dominated by our wardrobes which take up most of the space. Our new room is much smaller than our current room but that doesn’t bother me too much. The long term plan is to convert the loft and have that as our fourth bedroom with ensuite so I’m happy to make do for a few years.
In our bedroom the walls are white with a small feature wall which is red, but in the wall is a very quirky little fireplace.
It’s safe to say it hasn’t really been looked after but when I saw it I was in two minds; do we just brick it up and forget about it, or do I try to transform it and make it into the statement piece of the room?
It isn’t central to the room which is a little awkward and I’m not sure how close it will be to our wardrobes but I have been scouring Pinterest for inspiration and have seen lots of gorgeous ideas of putting candles or logs inside which look gorgeous!
A few of the tiles are chipped and one is broken so I’m thinking we could possibly change the tiles and make it more into a fireplace to make the room all cosy.
Does anyone else have any ideas? I know that red wall has to go – “Roxanne” anyone?! Keep your eyes peeled for a transformation post in the future as I am hoping to start mini projects such as this once we are in and settled.
