What Would You Do With This Blah Corner of the Bedroom?

When I did my bedroom makeover, there was this corner that I just didn’t know what to do with. Yes. I am a writer and just ended that sentence with a preposition. I am waiting for the grammar police to come take me away.

The TV has to stay here. Maybe someday, we will afford a wall-mounted flat screen. Maybe some generous sponsor will send me a TV for review. Hah. But in the meantime, my husband likes having a TV here. So, I was trying to figure out what to do with this blah corner. 

 I had these mirrors from our old bedroom and had painted the frames in sort of a white pickled look. I never really liked the frames that way, but liked having mirrors. 

 I decided to pop out the mirrors and give them an update.

 That’s the before picture above. I painted them with the wall color, and then antiqued them with brown glaze. I coated them with poly when finished.

 I tried to get a good close-up shot of the finish.

 It’s a start. Now I have mirrors on the wall, at least. 

But now what? How can I make this corner a lot more interesting? It’s still so boring! What would you do?

  1. I know it's a major project, but I'd love to see your dresser refinished a shade or two darker than the walls. Can the TV be moved elsewhere? I'd like to see a vintage lamp there. You don't show us your bedding, but if you like the colors, could you arrange a collection of objects in those colors on a tray or near a stack of books? Good luck. You've made a lovely start.

  2. I think a lamp on the dresser would be a nice touch but if you want to keep the TV there, then I'd see about putting in a hanging light in that corner. Could your son weld you a metal ring with holders for candles and then you wouldn't have to worry about wiring? Or suspend a bird cage in that corner with some decorative greens inside. Could also suspend a plant there. If you decide on something, please share an update!
