Life is too exciting not to get out of bed right away! I had the standard alarm right next to the bed. As soon as it goes off, I'm ready to go!

You could reverse fold it in the opposite direction of the kink and place weight on the fold. Maybe that will get it back to neutral flat?

Seems like a lot of work went into this. Too bad the warmth got lost in the process.

p.s. the truck would look nice at the foot of the bed, if you have room there.

Ikea has shoe cabinets that you can mount to the wall. I saw someone who used them as laundry storage - this could be good for the empty space on your closet wall. Then you may be able to move one of the chests out (I'd say the purple/gray one - as it doesn't seem to hold anything pertinent to the bedroom).

Something like this:

It looks like there isn't a lot of room on either side of your bed, so you may think about decluttering either side or pushing the bed up against the wall.

Hope that helps!

This is great! I bet it would be good on a piece of primed canvas. That way you could reuse it every year without having to redo it or put holes in the wall! Very inventive.

I use my Ikea Expedit for this. Each square is small enough that the scale is right, and allows for display that's not completely in your face. I color coordinate them with books and other knick knacks, Trexis, etc.

Yikes! Spend $50 on paint instead. Same effect.

Contrary to the concept, the execution seems very cold and unfinished to me. Then again, I never dug the shabby chic thing either. To each his own!

From the picture it looks like the door to the room is the point from where the picture is taken, so I'd say you could paint the wall with the window. That way people will be immediately drawn to it instead of the closet doors. If that's not the case, paint the largest wall without the closet doors (looks rectangular, so that would be the wall your bed is on). You could also paint the whole thing and then paint the closet doors a shade lighter or darker than your chosen hue.

Like Eric's post before - I'd love to come over a help! I work weekdays until 6, but nearly all of my weekends are free. I live in Hollywood, but if you're in the general Los Angeles area, I'm more than happy to come over do whatever needs to be done! I'm sure my boyfriend would love to help, too.
