Settee Staged

I’m finally done painting my bedroom walls white. And I have my settee all set up in the sitting room part of my bedroom. Before I go on, can I just say that the whole “sitting room” part of a master bedroom is a complete waste of space and not sure why anyone needs one. Except that it gave me a great excuse to buy a settee!!! So here it is ready for “sitting.”

I talked about getting it through Overstock in this post. And then I showed you some of my fun accessories in this post. Now, I got it all set up, moved my side tables and lamps next to it because they fit really nicely there, and then I was ready to hang artwork.

The piece in the top left is the first piece of art that my husband and I bought when we first got married. We always dreamed of having a boat, so we thought this was a great way to dream – we still don’t have a boat. The photo to the right of that is me in my wedding dress. The art on the bottom left is a pencil sketch my sister-in-law gave us as a gift. It’s a drawing of our son from a photo my mother-in-law took. The last one is also a pencil sketch representing my husband and baby boy laying down together with just their feet showing. I love each and every one of these pieces, so I wanted to display them in a somewhat symmetrical collage above the settee.

Beyond just setting up the settee, I was also able to paint an old mirror I had mint this weekend. It’s so fun against the white walls.

This should be the last preview I share before the entire room is done. I have a new bed coming soon, and our bathroom has a few more touchups before it’s finally done. I won’t have it finished until August because the next two weeks are full of work travel and then our family Summer vacation. I’m definitely ready for it to all be completed!! Let me know what you think!!

Settee Love

I have always loved settees. They just look so comfortable and almost romantic to me for some reason. And I’ve always wanted to get one for my house but haven’t had the right place for it – until now. In my master bedroom, I have a sitting room that right now just holds a desk, a dresser, and a side table. Sort of a jumble of furniture. As part of my bedroom and bathroom update, I’m adding this settee to one wall, putting my current small side tables on either side of it, setting some fun throw pillows on it, and covering the wall above it with art and family photos.

I can’t wait to see how it turns out. And I’m so excited to finally be able to use a settee! I bought the one above from Overstock, and I got it during their Memorial Day Sale for $230 – a steal for a piece of furniture like this!

Do you love settees as much as I do?
