All in Home Improvement
It’s week 3 and the guest bedroom has drastically changed with new paint, wall trim and a DIY queen sized headboard. With only a hundred bucks to create a welcoming dream room for guests, my first expense was buying supplies for the wall trim.
This is my first $100 Room Challenge and after weekend one, I’m both excited and pooped. I've decided to jump right in and transform the guest bedroom in one month! This is all about The guest bedroom closet and how I transformed it without spending any of my budget! Phew.
Oh my! I can’t believe I am doing this. For two years my feet have been dangling in the pool of blogging. Post here. Post there. Rarely a post everywhere. My social media footprint was me just moving my toes back and forth. Never going any deeper than I was comfortable.
Then it happened.
I don't know about you, but I fail at seeing my New Year's resolutions come true. I make 'em and break 'em, then feel guilty. 2018 is going to be different. Instead of resolutions, I am setting goals...5 home improvement goals to be exact.
I cannot express how happy this room makes me feel. Before it was dark and cluttered. Now--happy dance--it's bright, soothing, and de-cluttered. Honestly, though, this would have turned out much differently if Hubby hadn't pitched in.
I'm not sure when I began to actually verbalize my master bedroom dream to Hubby. He's the kind of guy who is pretty darn content with the way things are. Each time I'd bring up an idea, he would poo-poo it. Tell me the room was fine...etc., etc. But you know, happy wife, happy life and all that. Poor guy.
So when I told him I wanted to buy four sheets of underlayment plywood for a plank wall, he raised his eyebrows, gave me the look... sighed, and said, "Okay".
n this five part master bedroom makeover, the challenge was to turn a cluttered dark bedroom into a welcoming peaceful retreat. I dreamed about a master suite that was light, spacious, and inviting. A space to relax. A place that was simple so that all thoughts and ideas could just sigh in relief.
I had this vision that one day I would have a beautiful master suite. Something grown-up...polished. A place where my mind sighed every time I entered. But with two mismatched dressers and very little spending money it seemed like my dream would never see the light of reality. But where there is imagination, Pinterest, and paint...anything is possible.
The dirty room--dun, dun, duuun. I'm pretty sure when they designed our modular home the laundry room was an after thought. It's a bit of an eyesore especially when sitting down to eat a meal. It desperately needed a makeover that didn't break the bank. Preferably a rustic farm-style makeover.
Could I create a space that was functional, stylish and didn't cost me a thing? What if I already had everything I needed; I just needed to re-imagine the space?
