After many years of illness and a loss of the person that I used to be, I made a decision to make myself as comfortable as possible; I created a cozy nest in our master bedroom and not only made it beautiful, but put everything that I use and need within reach of my side of the bed. This is what i did:I decided what we needed and how it would all fit into the room. I got everything in the appropriate sizes. a few pieces were new, but most were things we already had in other parts of the house.After we put everything in place, I found that our King bed (one that moves up and down) still fit. we had the room painted a soft cream with white trim and added cream colored draperies on the windows as well as shades for light control. As I sit writing this,beside me is a small white 4 drawer chest that has everything I could need in it (books, bible, drawing pad, drawing pencils, a journal, an appointment book, a heating pad, dining napkins, small cotton towels, a container for waste paper, a box of Kleenex, round tins for all sorts of needs such as lipbalm, nail equipment, skin cream, etc…use your imagination. )On top is a phone,a lamp that works without electricity for emergencies, a TV and bed control and room for a small tray. Just behind my left shoulder is a small floor lamp that i can easily reach. Looking straight ahead on the wall opposite the bed is a very small electric fireplace with a beautiful painting of flowers above , that i have always loved. Beside it is a small round drop leaf table with 2 chairs so that if i can't get out of bed, my husband can still dine with me, In the corner next is a larger dresser for clothing with a small TV on top. The walls are decorated with several large painitings and photographs. a clothes tree stands by the dresser for quick hangups instead of having to open the closet door and search for things if i don't feel like it. My husbands side has a rounded table and a table lamp. I splurged on cotton bedding in several colors and bought a bunch of pastel pillowcases at a clearance sale. I have two really good pillows for us and four more so we have a pile of pillows.I really spent very little money, but it is so comforting. I encourage you to create a special place for yourself where you can rest. Use what you have, use your imagination, do it all gradually. Large or small, It makes all the difference in the world. My favorite thing in mine is a little fancy photo holder with pictures of all those that I love still here or home with God. I love looking through it and seeing those precious faces of my family anytime I want. I would love to hear your ideas and what you have done to make your nest. Be blessed and sweet dreams!
