Sprucing up the Bedroom

Remember this chair? It was in the exercise/catch -all room before hubby retired. I'll show you where I moved it in a minute. I had this hope chest at the foot of our bed for several years but decided to move it under the window in the exercise room and made a new cover for it.

I moved the chair in our sitting room adjoining our bedroom with the matching ottoman. I like it there so much better.
We have A LOT of out of town company and we use this as our little retreat.

We got a new settee for the foot of the bed at a store in NC. If any of you have had the pleasure of shopping in Hickory, Granite Falls, Hudson,NC etc.-- you know what I mean when I say you can really get the bargains there.
This Settee came from Hammary's. It is a division of Lazy Boy Company. You can find it there or at Macy's on line for about $1,200.
In Hudson, NC we paid $300.00. What a difference. Our niece just made a trip here from MI to purchase her bedroom, dining room furniture. It was worth the travel expense.

I've just been busy tweaking and nesting. I just love being a homemaker. What have you been up to?

I have two big projects starting tomorrow. We're redoing the landscape in our front yard. Hard work but looking forward to getting it done. It's not a huge area though.
I'll take pictures.
See ya soon!

The sitting room off your master bedroom is awesome and you've decorated it nicely. I love the chair in there. Of course, the new settee is fabulous!

Rose, You have been busy, What a beautiful job of nesting you have done, and I just love the retreat you have in your bedroom. Good luck on your new projects, we have been working on ours for a long time, and can't seem to finish for having to stop and do something else. Hopefully ours will be done soon. I am looking forward to your finished results. Don't over work or get too hot!! LOL

It looks so beautiful! What a nice place for just you and hubby to hide when your house is full of company! Can't wait to see your new front landscaping. I had some landscapers come this week to clean out all the beds and cut back bushes and lay down mulch. All of which Phil usually does, but since he's gone there was no way I could do it myself. And now everything looks so pretty I'm actually excited about doing my planting. Enjoy your weekend!!!
