So, I am curious – what would you do? If you were moving into a new house and had a limited budget, would you have the entire house painted OR keep the walls beige (it comes that way) and buy master bedroom furniture? I am just wondering what you would do if this was your decision to make??
All along I planned to paint the entire house before we move in. We got a quote today from a guy who can have it all painted in 24 hours (he has a big team of painters) before we move in. Then Rick asked me if I would rather spend the money on painting or bedroom furniture for us. Here is our bedroom furniture situation. . . we have a dresser/mirror, chest and one nightstand that I was given in high school from my great aunt (it had been hers) – so it is old. We have no headboard at all. The girls both have bed frames and mattresses, no headboards and we only have one chest. We have been using some “makeshift” cubicles for clothes for a while. Sounds pitiful, I know. . . but we have made it work. I have been looking on Craigslist for white furniture for their rooms. White is hard to come by. I have a creative idea for a headboard for Addison and a friend who could help me make some little picket fence headboards for Ava Jane’s twin beds, if I want to.
Please give me your opinion on what you would do. And if you have any great ideas or know of any great deals on some decent furniture, let me know that too. I am really trying not to spend any more money on cheap furniture. . . but I know that the good stuff cost some bucks. I am happy to have mis-matched pieces in the girl’s rooms, but would prefer a matching bedroom suite for our room. Thanks for you input!
