So I've decided Sunday will be the day that we look ahead, together, at what's comin' down the pike. Today I'll be discussing my upcoming bedroom makeover. I know what you're thinking - why am I making over my bedroom? If I'm on here bragging about how I can help you with the mess in YOUR life, MY life must be perfect right? Well, sadly for you (and me), that is not the case. I am taking a different approach, one I learned at the touchy-feely, but at the same time very-hard-core therapeutic boarding school my sister attended for several years in her teens: Lead by example.

To that end, we will start with my bedroom. Which is now pretty much a disaster, but a superficial disaster. That means that the bones are fine - the furniture is good and the rug is... OK, well, the rug is gross, but Ted is cheap and thinks that the old rug from our 4 year old's former bedroom is fine, even though it has marker stains all over it and isn't the right size for the room. But mostly what's wrong with the room is fixable - new curtains, more surfaces, different bedside tables, that sort of thing. So I'm fixing it. And  while I will benefit from a nicer bedroom, you, dear readers, will also benefit. How, you say? Well, I am going to post before and after pictures. The "before" pictures will make you feel superior and good inside because your bedroom looks so much better. The "after" pictures will at first make you sad and jealous, but then you will realize that if someone who is fairly lazy, has a full-time job, two whining brats, a very cheap and unsympathetic husband, and several mental disorders can do this, so can you! And then you will be inspired and motivated and my work here will be done.

To that end, I am going to post a picture of my new nightstands (that have not arrived yet but should any week now not that I'm counting the minutes). There are two pictures. This one is of the bedside table I wanted:

This one is the one that I got:

Now, I don't want to hear any crap about how the one I got is nowhere near as nice as the other one. I am fully aware of that, thank you. I am also aware that in many circles, the store at which you can buy the "expensive" one, Z Gallerie, is referred to as a place that provides "inexpensive options." I shudder to think how they would refer to the website where I found the "cheap" one.

Here's the thing. I am married to a person who thinks that the $35 Target bedside tables we currently have are fine. And I am trying to stay married to this person. Marriage is about compromise. See? Leading by example. Good times!

Pin It!

You are so funny

I think you are funny, too! Also - your "before" bedroom is what want my "after" bedroom to look like.

I like the cheaper option much better!

Meredith and I both think the first one is much nicer.

I think that's a great compromise - hardly any de=ifference at all, and the plain design will probably age better!

In general, Ford makes good quality vehicles and they're definitely a car manufacturer that

can locate a car on the process and see the expenses attached to each motor vehicle.
