Home Decor: My Bedroom Tour

Being an Army wife I am pretty used to the moving around a lot.....Like a LOT!
With that you get to live in all kinds of different houses. Big, small, on base, or off base. I am constantly trying to fit and mold my style to fit the house. We've gone through a lot of different "looks". A lot of different kinds of furniture. I feel like this is the first house {even though its really cramped} has inspired me to embrace my true style. 
I think it's funny how I tend to get the house finished right before we love. I guess it's always a work in progress. Best advice I can give a military wife is make it a home as soon as you move in. We have lived in a house as short as 11 months and as long as 3 years. It really is crazy how much we move.
So I thought I would give you a tour of my bedroom as it is in our base house in Massachusetts. 

Funny story about our bed. Well we can laugh about it now but it wasn't so funny then. These old Cape Cod style houses are so tiny with a weird layout that really just drive me crazy. Our headboard is tall. I wouldn't think so outrageously tall but I've never lived in Massachusetts before. 
They couldn't fit it up the stairs! So I thought we would never be able to use our brand new bed frame and be forced to sleep on mattresses for three years. I called around to several places. Someone even suggested taking it through one of the windows. {ummm is that a New England thing?"
Luckily...and I mean seriously blessed here. My awesome friend Mike told us it was an easy fix and he could help the hubby take it a part and put it back together again. {That's easy?} It ended up working and we paid him in pizza and called it a day.

Now how to get it back out of here???

I knew we were moving soon so I didn't want to set up a nursery yet. So since there is literally NO SPACE in my room I made Caleb a little baby nook out of my closet. I wanted to go all out and decorate it but he came too early. So this had to do and it's worked out great. 

Thanks for stopping by....
