reclaimed bedroom shelf.

if anyone has been following hello scarlett from the very beginning, they will remember that our master bedroom in little green is up in a little loft. not only are we short on space, we are also short on ceiling height. for almost a year now, we have been sleeping on two double mattresses. and when i say mattresses i mean mattresses. no box spring, no frame. just two mattresses on the floor. and side tables? fo’get about it! eyeglasses, cellphones, and books have also found a home on the floor beside the bed.

now you may be wondering why we insist on living primitively, or like university students. (really both are strikingly similar.) why not just move into our nice big spare bedroom on the main floor, or new bedroom in the basement? the answer is simple. if you were to ascend our little staircase and stand in our little loft, you would notice the cross breeze that gently caresses your face and brings with it a heavenly scent of fresh air and old trees. the freshly painted white walls would immediately soothe you, while the dark beams above your head would draw your attention upward to our beautiful, and little, crystal chandelier. behind that is our equally stunning white chimney, which leads down to our dark and antique hardwood floors. we installed our own little closet space that hides behind a lace curtain and crystal tie-back. the closet resides next to the famous “we are living our adventure” decal. our bedroom, although imperfect in many ways, is also perfect in and upon itself.

so where does our latest diy fit in? read below!
