Building the Beehive: Continued

Here's what we have so far. Most of it is in boxes. We should be up and running by next week!

Things I Need:
  • File Folders
  • Curtains
  • Curtain Rods
  • Book Ends
  • File Holder
  • Wallpaper Hanging Supplies

Things I Need to Decide:
  • The Desk: Should I paint it the same color as the walls in the rest of the bedroom?
  • The Curtains: Bright white? Off-white? A different shade of blue?
  • The Files: Too many pretty designs to choose from. Loveliness overload!

Things I need to do:
  • Find a home for the remaining clutter in the closet.
  • Hang wallpaper (it'll be here Wednesday!)
  • Set up smaller closet (custom drawers also arrive Wednesday!)


  1. Is that really your desk? I love the silhouette! If it were me, I think I would paint the desk to match the rest of your bedroom furniture... but I don't think I'm very gifted in the interior design department.

  2. Thank you! It is really mine. It's all assembled and almost ready to go!

    It's a dressing table from Ikea! I had picked out a computer desk but when I saw this one in the bedroom section I about died. They have a whole line of furniture with those lovely legs, too:

    I'm still so torn about painting! I love how dramatic the color is against our walls- but it will probably be much too dark when the wallpaper is in.
