She and 19 other major talented bloggers will be revamping a space in 6 weeks, check in on her blog every Wednesday to follow along. If you want to take on the challenge yourself you can too. Just link up your space every Thursday to Linda's blog.
I will be linking up once again. This challenge is fun and it helps put a little kick in my butt and holds me accountable to start and finish a project. So thank you Linda. Thank you for letting us all join in on the fun.
Last time I did a very tiny space. I didn't want to jump in without testing the waters you know. Baby steps. Now I am taking on a much bigger project.
Drumroll..... My Master bedroom.
I am totally going to keep it real here for you. I thought I'd clean up but no... this is the way I have been living for awhile now, and yes it's pitiful. No getting around this. This is NO sanctuary I can tell you that.
I have no real excuse but I will try a few out on you.
Oh my gosh! Really? Why? Why have I let this happen? Kind of like looking in the mirror every summer in a swimsuit and thinking "how did I let it get this bad?"
Please make me feel a little better and let me know I am not alone.
I know master bedrooms are definitely rooms that are put on the back burner the most, and since no one else comes in here other than me, my husband and my kids, no one sees it. Thank God!
But that shouldn't be an excuse. We need to make our rooms special and make it a place that we long to retreat to after a long day, not a dumping ground and a forgotten waste land.
Just to save face a little here.. yes, the wall color was a super bad choice but it was painted with a different bedding that we had. This blue bedding is new, so are the lamps. We have no headboard because we went from a queen to a king mattress and didn't buy a headboard yet. When we bought the new mattress, we switched the layout of the furniture and things just kind of just got thrown around, hence the cord mess by the dresser, and the desk area.. oh please let's just throw a sheet over that and call it good.
So, what is my plan?
Things that will change:
- Lighten this room up with paint
- Add some "character" to the space
- New drapes (and yes, they will be hung higher.)
- New headboard
- Create a sitting area for reading
- Change up the bedding a little
- Add art above bed
- Mount tv to wall above dresser
- Slipcover made to put over chest at end of bed
- Organize, organize, organize
Unfortunately, I have no other space in our house for our desk, nor the treadmill (unless we move it to the garage) and we aren't getting rid of the tv, so there! Ideally, in a perfect world I would love to have a separate office and a gym in my house but I do not, so I have to deal with it.
Here are some inspirational ideas of what's ahead.
As you can see it will hopefully have a lighter, airy, coastal type vibe going on when I'm done with it. You can see more ideas on my Pinterest board, here.
Hope you will follow along and see how I change this room. I will be back every Thursday with a progress report but you can also follow me on Instagram in the meantime.
Crossing fingers it turns out as good as I see it in my head.
