Almost three years ago we moved into our first flat together. The room that evolved the most was our bedroom. A couple of days after we did some painting, installed the light fixture and assembled IKEA bed and closet, I snapped some pictures for our friends and family.
Oh, the joys of our first days of living together. Even our sheets were mismatched, the laminated floor and the restaurant air conditioning on the flat roof of our building.
I remember being so proud that we have brand new sliding door closet. We even had the shoe between the door and the closet because we were afraid that the door will break it. We have moved most of our properties in these suitcases on the left and we did it by train. The green carpet was actually my biggest property after selling my single life furniture.
Nowdays, this same room actually looks way more wild and “storagey”.
The biggest change that happened in this room is that we did laminate flooring last year. We have picked cheap IKEA laminate, borrowed some tools from our friends and spent a weekend cutting and assembling everything. Our grand total was about 100 euros with blue knees and back pain included.
Another recent addition, which actually brought a lot of change in this room are the curtains. They are very light and airy and have this unusual country print all over, but somehow they make really nice separation between our room and the roof and I finally do not feel as if I am sleeping next to a restaurant chimney. The best thing: it took only 2 packs of 7 euro Tchibo panels. Sweet 14 euro grand total.
Then we also got some more furniture. Here is my beloved Expedit cube. I would like to get one more, but I’ve heard that IKEA is not selling them any more. Whyyy?
And then, this is my home office workspace. Honestly, even though it looks pretty, the desk is too small for my needs and the chair has to long seating surface for 164 cm tall girl, which results in my legs being straight instead of bent, which results in the knee problems… Anyway, short people will get it, major changes are planned for this corner.
And then, the details: Grandma’s frame from Grandma’s frame remake post.
And an electric cord basket which indeed is a mess, but at least all the chargers stay there when not used.
So, this is how our bed room looks like in the moment We are hoping to stay in this flat at least until the end of the year and enjoy the beauty of it.
I did not post a lot of details on the products (not sure if a lot of people are interested in it), but everything in the room, except for bed and closet is rather inexpensive and comes from Ikea (sometimes I joke that we live in the Ikea showhouse), Tchibo, Strauss, TkMaxx and Depot.
