Master Bedroom and Patio

I decided no one would read the posts if I scheduled them to post over the weekend so here is my Monday morning post! When y'all actually read this, I will be two days from leaving for England, where I should have internet in the hotels everywhere we stay! I am pretty excited about that trip because not only will we actually get to visit London this time, we are also making a trip to Stonehenge AND driving up to York by way of Sherwood Forest. I'm praying my husband will not want to dress up like Robin Hood and stay in a tree! Anyways, today I'll show you the progress in the master bedroom and out on the patio. I know I have posted these pictures before but here is a short recap of what the bedroom looked like pre-wallpaper stripping and painting.Gross huh? Here are some shots during the hellacious job of wall paper stripping. I think that all prisoners should be forced to strip wall paper as punishment while they are serving time. I can't think of anything worse!

Paint up...And finally with some stuff in it! Keep in mind, it is going to take our new bed 6-8 weeks to get here! We are currently sleeping on our new box spring and mattress on the floor!! Nice huh? At least we are moved into our room. We slept in the guest bedroom for the first week! We are still using the guest bathroom for now until we get the new shower up in our bathroom but we are getting closer every day!Aren't my new sheets awesome!? I LOVE them! Thanks Laura! I don't have all our new bedding on the bed yet (obviously) but it was still a little warm in Germany so we only need the sheets and light quilt. Once we get our bed I will be able to put the comforter and bed skirt on the bed. Don't y'all love my husband's nightstand? Unbeknownst to me, apparently my husband cannot sleep with a nightstand. I don't want to buy new nightstands until our new bed arrives so that we know how much space we are actually working with. Don't you like the moving box that he set up to act as his nightstand?? So innovative!! I hope that it holds up until the bed gets here!

The last set of pictures for the day are of our back patio and new patio furniture. I don't have any pictures of what the patio looked like before it was redone but it didn't have stones laid and the retaining wall wasn't painted. It looks a million times better now.We have outside lighting on the patio and we have already enjoyed many meals outside! We have a great new grill and have cooked out about every single meal since we moved in. Might as well while it isn't 30 degrees below zero!!

Many more things to share tomorrow such as our hideous struggle in getting internet, some more house pictures, and tales from my birthday! It has definitely been a busy few weeks! Talk soon!!

The patio looks like a terrific spot. The bakery and weingarten also seem rather too convenient. Where were all these painting skillz when you moved to Park Circle??

Thanks for sharing. It looks like you have an azmazing view. I know you will enjoy many beers right on that beautiful patio. Not to seem too stalkerish, but I have missed your posts while you have been in the process of moving/without internet.
