Furnishings for a Small Cape Cod Bedroom

To finish this room off, or at least make it habitable, I bought a full-size, Ikea Malm bed. At the time it was only $100. It’s low to the ground and works well with the slanted ceiling. The mirror is from Ikea as well. The dresser is a cheap POS bought from Overstock.com. I wouldn’t use this somewhat flimsy dresser in a kid’s bedroom and my 20-somethings have strict instructions to treat it with TLC.

For this small cape cod bedroom I chose an Ikea Malm bed and mirror and a small dresser from Overstock.com

As you’ve seen in previous photos I added a mirror to the closet door. I considered cutting the mirror to match the slant in the door (a feature which I love), but I chickened out. Now, there is also a light inside the closet. It was wired but never installed. The small, blue and white, sponge-painted table (in the left corner) holds an old-school TV and DVD player.

The wall lamps seen in the picture below are KRAMARE wall spotlights we bought in a hurry at Ikea.

Recently added lamps above the bed are Kramare wall spotlights from Ikea.

I am very disappointed with these lamps. First, the cords hanging down the wall are unsightly, and second, I cannot find the required light bulbs ANYWHERE! Maybe with some cord covers and some art on the wall…. and light bulbs!
