The Bedroom Redesign | Out with the old


eBay selling list here

I don't usually post on Sundays but as I appear to have got myself somewhat head on scheduling this weekend I thought why not pop a bit of shameless self promotion on the blog.

My bedroom at home has always been one of the rooms I've struggled to get just right. It's a shoebox. A large shoebox but an odd rectangle shape that doesn't give you much freedom to play around with. I've since found the best layout for the room and I had it repainted about this time last year but I've still never been quite happy with things.

Last Tuesday I decided that my super large mirror and headboard whilst items I loved were just too big and black for the room and didn't aid the peaceful slumber I'm always searching for and they were immediately listed on eBay.

My bedroom furniture had always been a bit miss matched, a couple of black bedside tables and a shabby chic style wardrobe and chest of drawers because it fitted in the oddly shaped alcove and a console table moved from my lounge it was time to make things a little more simple - and complimentary.

After some playing around with tape measures and searching online I knew exactly what to do and the whole contents of my bedroom was added to the eBay list to pass on to a good home and start again.

Impatience is killing me at the moment as I can't wait to get started and I'm holding off ordering any furniture until next week when the eBay listings have ended and I have confirmed collection dates with buyers. It'll be a great further opportunity to have a clear out as I transfer clothes to hanging rails and other items into boxes during the interim period and the plans for my new furniture make me so excited. Nothing better than starting again.

As this is my most exciting New Year project at the moment you'll no doubt find this the topic of one or two blog posts so I hope you won't mind the self indulgence and enjoy my excitement at a simplified bedroom space.

And of course, if you're in the Essex area and in the market for some new furniture, why not take a look!
