I don’t know if it’s just me, but the last few months of the year always feel like they fly past. I can’t believe this is already our second last calendar for this year. If you have any suggestions for next year’s freebie of the month, be it a calendar or otherwise, feel free to leave a comment below. Any product suggestions are also welcome, as always.
This month I wanted to show you what we have done in the main bedroom so far. We installed a floating shelf and a wall light above the bed because of the limited space against this particular wall. I must say, I like it a lot more than traditional bedside tables – it’s a lot cleaner and I love the black accents with the linen.
Also, don’t you just love the wall light? We love it so much that we’re adding it as a product for next year (along with 100% linen bedding, black ceramics and other exciting stuff – watch this space!).
The floating shelf is an old pine shelf that was touched up with a coat of black wood stain. We use wood stain a lot more than paint – it dries more quickly and you don’t need to prime the wood before painting. I also like how the wood grain still shows after it has been painted. It was an easy DIY job and it’s amazing what a difference it made to the room.
If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll know that we’ve been redecorating a bit, so I hope to post some more photos of our home soon (maybe even a full house tour, who knows?).
