Helping A Friend:
One of my office fellows at work was talking to me and asking me if I set up my house yet. My answer was, “heck no, I am too busy blogging…LOL”. She asked what kind of bedroom I am going with, I am like…”Ummm it’s a secret, but I can give a color away I am gonna go with, and it’s gray”. She said, “Oh, gray is my favorite color as well”.
My Question To Her:
I asked her about her bedroom and she said that it’s pretty old, but she has no idea what to do. And by now, readers, you all started to have a sense of my crazy helpful nature. I jumped in and said, “Oh, I can help you with that”. Well, my friend got very excited and accepted my help. She asked me how am I going to help her as she lives a bit farther in another city, the fact that I am too busy with everything. I solved the problem. I asked her to take pictures of her bedroom’s individual walls.
Pictures of Bedroom’s All 4 Walls:
She took my advice, and the next day brought me pictures of all her four walls in the bedroom. Pretty smart idea to see the whole bedroom, right? Of course, after all, she is working with me. I was excited to see those pictures. To be honest, the pictures didn’t disappoint me. I got rather excited and visualized the whole new beautiful bedroom between those tired and outdated walls.
When you enter the room, the first thing you see is her bed and I personally think that is a pretty good place for the bed. It should be facing the door as the bed is important furniture for the room. I have never been to her place, but I am going to when she will have everything ready according to our mood board.
These curtains just made me laugh. I can be mean at times, too. I just laughed and laughed…my poor friend. I told her “what the heck were you thinking with these curtains?” She probably thought I am going crazy, so all she did laughed with me and said so what should I do now.
I asked if she needs her computer table or writing table in the room so when I put a design board ready, I should know about that, but she preferred to get rid of it. That dresser in the corner has got to go.
This wall is opposite the bed. I have no idea why dresser is pushed up in the corner but it’s okay…she is a great woman to work with. The good part is she is very nice when it comes to accepting the changes and taking advice.
She does need this ironing board in the room and I am going to think something for this to hang that board. I might dig for ideas on the Pinterest.
So after going over all the above images, I asked her about what color and style she likes. She kinda couldn’t give me an idea about the style, but for the color, she already told me that she would like to go with gray. The big thing she told me was that she had a minimum budget to go with.
Well, that should not be an issue for me as ever since I became a mother, I took the license to manage any kind of money issues. I am pretty thrifty, so it was not an issue for me.
I would love to get rid of that ugly carpet but she doesn’t have a budget for that which is fine. We are going to hunt for an area rug from Costco. We should be okay.
The funny Part:
The funny part is that my husband who holds a degree in communication as well does proofread my post as English is a second language for me. He is going to pull his hair out that I am helping others while our own house is a mess but it’s okay, he will get over it soon.
Did you like the design, board? Stay tuned that room going to look fabulous and I will post updates soon!!!
