A couple of summers ago, my mom and I painted the two dressers that are in our master bedroom so that they'd be ready for the future nursery whenever that time came (I wasn't kidding in this post when I described my "old" self as having a plan for every future second of my life).
We figured it would make more sense long-term for us to buy bedroom furniture for our room, than nursery furniture for the baby's room. Plus, bedroom furniture has been on our list of things to purchase for ourselves for quite some time.
When we were living in the apartment, we said we would buy bedroom furniture when we bought a house. Well then we bought a house and flipped the whole thing, so bedroom furniture seemed slightly unnecessary after all of the other changes we made in a short amount of time.
I got in my head (that's never a good start, haha) that I didn't want to "set up" our room until we got bedroom furniture, thinking that we'd make that decision fairly soon after moving in. But anyone who owns a house knows that there are ALWAYS more investment-worthy house decisions that stand in the way when you get ready to make "fun" purchases. Like a fence. Or grass. Or paint. Or a porch. Or, my personal favorite, new pipes (remember this picture?!).
Thankfully, God's timing of this baby is (shall I even say it?!) falling in line with a good time to actually make a fun purchase. Fingers crossed nothing breaks in the next 24 hours after me putting that out there. Well, minus the fact that Matt's car was totaled a month ago. (Confession- my first thought after knowing that Matt was okay was honestly, "Dangit! There goes the bedroom furniture... again." Yeah, not my sweetest moment. At least I didn't say it out loud?
Thankfully, the insurance of the guy who hit Matt covered the cost of the car and we were able to come away with a newer version of Matt's old car without having to put much of our own money in at all. Major blessing!
So insert bedroom furniture.
We're down to two options. I really like one of these, but Matt's not too sure about it.
Unfortunately, because he rarely has an opinion about things like this, I feel like I should listen to it. That whole trying-to-be-a-good-wife thing pops up at the most inconvenient times.
Point being- I was thinking a little feedback may help to sway either one of us to what the other likes. SO, I won't tell you which one of us likes which furniture the best, but I'd love to hear what y'all think. Don't hold back. Shoot it straight. I can take it.
And here's a general view of what our room looks like now so you can envision the new look (except we now have a dark fan and different bedding:
So what do you think?!
Option 1 or 2?
Thanks for your help, friends!
