Tall Beadboard Cupboard gets a Moving!
This last week, I’ve been working on the two spare bedrooms we have in our lower level, at ‘Our House’. They were basically pretty good, as I ‘refreshed’ them just a couple years ago. But last week it suddenly struck me: these two rooms need to be switched!
I was motivated because I was able to save some of the antique windows we took out of the cottage, and I was thinking of repurposing plans for two of them for in one of the bedrooms. I’ll show you that fun repurposing project soon!
The other motivator was thinking of how one of the bedrooms is larger and could house the twin beds better than where they were, in the smaller bedroom.
The final motivator was when I said my thoughts out loud, my granddaughter jumped on the idea and offered to help! It doesn’t take much to talk me into moving furniture, so 3 confirmations were like rocket fuel for me.
A while back when I first started this blog, I got my blog feet wet posting about the ‘West Bedroom’, that is one of the two bedrooms involved in this switch-a-roo.
This was where the tall beadboard cupboard was located when we started. In the corner, but flat against the wall, and it always looked a little crowded, especially with the window treatment touching it. But I really wanted to keep it in this room, as it fits in the cottage style of the room so well.
So I moved it across the room and angled it in the corner. Wow, was a simple thing to do, and what a great transformation.
This is a great little cupboard and it just needed more room to state that fact.
The dresser that was in the corner got moved to the center of the wall, and looks so much better there too, but I’ll show you more on that another time. Now back to this cupboard.
I put a grouping of baskets on the top of it for some great texture and hit of color. These baskets are full of texture and memories. The tall basket in the back is a vintage one I bought years ago at an estate sale for pennies, the one on the right was holding a gift from my daughter in law, and the green and white one in front, one of my sons made in school when he was little.
In switching things around, I grabbed a picture hanging in the hallway to see how it looked in here. Looked pretty good. After I hung it I realized just how perfect the frame on it coordinates with the inset frame I painted on the door of the beadboard cupboard.
I got this picture a couple years ago and it came framed like this. The cupboard I painted many years ago. I just never had the two in the same room before to notice the similarity.
Now seeing them together, it’s like a ‘match made in heaven’… or at least in the ‘West Bedroom’.
