We have lived in this home for a year – now that I’ve finished up this pregnancy and (almost finished the) newborn phase, I’ve decided it’s high time that we finish up our current home tour. I WILL finish every room before we move out of this house! 🙂
The master bedroom is up next. We really do love this house for our current situation, but I will say this…it’s an older home, and older homes just have different layouts than what many of us are used to today. Space is something we’ve definitely struggled with in the bedroom/bathroom area, so we’ve had to improvise a lot.
Take, for example, our bedroom furniture. When we lived in Alabama, we bought a beautiful (huge) set of bedroom furniture that we decided would be ours forever and always. Well, we didn’t anticipate moving into a home where not all of it fit in the master bedroom. So, one of our end tables is currently in Emmie’s room, and the entertainment chest is at a weird angle to accommodate the layout of the room.
We’ve also had to improvise in the closet area. Anybody that’s ever lived in a home built before 1970 probably knows how tiny the closets can be. We have a lot of them, but they are very spread out over the entire house. I currently use the master closet (and part of the closet in Jackson’s room) and Noah uses a closet in the kitchen and living room. Like I said, we’re making it work…just with kind of a strange arrangement!
But space (really the arrangement of closet/bedroom space) is my only complaint about this home. We love it here…it’s honestly kind of cool (in a very Mad Men kind of way) to live in a home built in the early 1960s. We find little treasures in this house all of the time that are so nostalgic!
Ok, enough talking…let’s get to the master bedroom!
