The above picture is of DJ's room. It sat empty after we moved all of the furniture to DJ's new apartment. I wish we had left it alone. Empty was so much better.
Den and I both fell in love with the set. It's Kathy Ireland furniture and the manufacturing date was 2008. All of the tags were still in the drawers and nothing had been in any of the drawers. We couldn't find an actual price of the furniture online. The woman pricing it out said it went for between $2000-$3000. We paid $500.
I know what your thinking, "why are you upset?" Ahhhhh, just wait.
We then bought the bed that we both wanted and............................................
We had decided a while ago on the larger daybed for DJ's room since it had a pull out under it. We needed more sleeping space and a full size bed wouldn't fit in there.
Anyways, Den and I started fighting and I sat down and cried. I know I'm being bratty. This isn't a big deal in the scope of life. But I want it changed.
We have done so many projects and we have never had this happen before(one time we had to repaint a lighter shade paint in the bathroom. That was the worst project problem we have run into and it wasn't bad). The thing is we love each thing separately. The wall color is beautiful. The furniture is above anything that we could have afforded if it wasn't used. The bed is awesome and a problem solver. And it doesn't work together.
Time, money and an extreme amount of effort wasted. Den suggested moving the furniture in our room. We hate our bedroom furniture, its falling apart, the finish is gummy in spots and its dated. But we would have to repaint our room. I'm ok with that and it sort of matches the design on the bedspread. But then we would have to buy more furniture for DJ's room. I think Den suggested it just to get me to stop crying.
Have you ever had a project turn out horribly? Do you have any ideas? I know I'm being a bummer and I'll get over. I don't like being sad Sonya.
Tired, sore, and not happy,
