carpet. In November I made some awesome new art for the walls. So the final touches happened when we got some snazzy new night stands from IKEA. They mount to the wall and I can vacuum all the way under them....so basically that rocks.
I also painted some lamps that I got at a garage sale. It was an awful wood and gold color and I spray painted it a dark chocolate brown color. I also got new lamp shades for these beautiful new lamps. They remind me of an old Victorian style shade minus the fringe. They give some soft lines to the otherwise very linear room. The final touches added to the room were pictures of Aaron and I in the new large frames that I got for the long wall in the room. I chose to use pictures from different vacations that we had been on. From left to right it is a picture of the ocean on our trip to San Fransisco in October, a picture in Arches National Monument earlier this year, and a Colorado mountain picture from one of our many 4wheeling adventures near Rollins Pass. And finally over the desk I hung a frame that I already had and put in it Sepia prints of our engagement photos. Some of the photos really turned out great.
