Many of you have welcomed me into your homes. You have shown me the intimate places in your house like your master bedroom. You have shown me your clothes, your cupboards and your closets. I think it’s only fair to let you in to see our room.
I love this little sanctuary. It’s a tiny room. Just enough room for a queen sized bed and two tiny little night stands.
This little nightstand has been next to my bed for years! It was an ugly beige Formica thing, until I roughed it up and painted it this feminine purple. I added some pretty pulls and it was transformed! In the bottom portion I have a wire basket with books, my Bible, and a beautiful ceramic box that my sister made. I keep love letters from my husband in there. My pretty knockoff Tiffany lamp was from my parents one Christmas.
This is Adam’s “nightstand.” Poor guy doesn’t have much space. We used a crate to hold all of his reading materials. It’s on top of an antique plant stand from his great aunt. The very top has a paper hat, a gift from our oldest.
I love our gallery wall. We had such a beautiful wedding. This is one of the last things I see at night before falling asleep.
Here’s a peak into our closet. Remember how I use my closet doors to keep track of my 2015 Goals? The left side of the closet has a pretty box up on the shelf. This holds my purses. Next to them are sweaters and sweatshirts. The banker’s box is Adam’s baby box.
I keep my hanging clothes organized by category left to right: dresses and shirts, shirts, hoodies, sweaters and cardigans and finally scarves and belts.
On the floor is our hamper and my rain boots. On the shoe rack are some of our out of season shoes on the bottom two shelves. The top two hold my cute boots! I lay them down and it works very well.
Here’s the other side of the closet. The top holds more memorabilia. Adam, Jacob and Reed all have baby boxes. On the far right are two bins holding their baptismal gowns and a few other very special baby garments.
Extra hangers are above the dresser and on the very right is Adam’s hanging clothes.
The top of the dresser is mostly Adam’s domain, as well as the top drawer of the dresser. The two baskets hold random hiking gear and stuff that Adam likes. There’s a pile of solo socks that are missing their mates. Adam’s certificate of appreciation from his business partner is on the left.
I’m going to jump down to where Adam stores his clothes. Now before you think that I’m a super-mean wife that doesn’t allow her husband any storage space, you should know that Adam is a minimalist. He conscously lives with very little possessions. He finds it a challenge to use the least amount of space possible. That being said let me show you where he keeps his clothes:
So that’s it. Our master bedroom! It’s small and simple and reflects our priorities. Have you created a safe place for yourself?
