Book Storage in the Bedroom

I am working with American Express to redo my bedroom. This week they have provided me with 150,000 Membership Rewards points.

The books in our bedroom doth overflow. We filled our library bookshelves long ago, and now the books are starting to amass into random piles throughout our home. We are planning to donate some of our books to the library, but we could still use more storage for the volumes we intend to keep.

Books

Our bedroom is somewhat small (12’x12′) and with a queen size bed, two nightstands, and my freestanding wardrobe, there isn’t a lot of room left for other furniture. There is a small space between the door and the closet though, and I found a bookshelf console table that fits perfectly. I’ve already redeemed some of this week’s points and I can’t wait to get the bookshelf in the room so I can put our books away.

I was considering placing a mirror over the bookshelf, but I’m going to use a metal wall sculpture instead. Also, Brandon and I have decided that we are going to go ahead and paint the room in Martha Stewart’s ‘Zinc’. So we’ll have art with an antiqued zinc piece on a wall painted in ‘zinc'; I don’t know why I like that so much, but I find it charming.

All right. I’m going to go for it and order the Edison Chandelier.

I may be setting myself up for a repeat of the Maskros pendant scale mismatch, but I have to at least try the Edison. There is potential for much excellence. I’m also going to pick up some paint samples this weekend, so we’ll see how that goes.

You already know that I picked up the striped sheets that I had wanted with this week’s points, but I still had some leftover. Brandon and I decided to use this opportunity to get something that we wouldn’t normally splurge on for the bedroom: a new comforter and pillows.

Our bed feels niiiiice now.

Possible Paint Colors for the Bedroom

I am working with American Express to redo my bedroom. This week they have provided me with 100,000 Membership Rewards points.

As I mentioned last week, I haven’t decided if I’m going to paint the bedroom or not. I could redeem some of my points for a Home Depot gift card, so I’m considering a few colors from Martha Stewart’s new line of paint.

Bedroom Paint Swatches

Brandon and I are both partial to ‘Zinc’, but I also like ‘Gray Squirrel’, ‘Brook Trout’, and ‘Seal’.

p.s. I got the striped sheets. I had them shipped to me from a west elm in Florida, and they are awesome.
