Happy Christmas week! We had a weekend jam-packed with family and celebrations, and the Santa-frenzy is reaching it’s peak. But we aren’t just sitting back, sipping eggnog (not that I drink that nasty stuff anyway), things got real, and real crazy over here.
Remember back in MARCH when I posted the Before shots of our bedroom? That’s typically an indicator that a makeover is in the works…especially given that it was top of my Home Goals list for 2014…but true to form, the makeover stalled. So with the year’s end looming, I’m determined to finally give our room the same attention the rest of the house has received. And following up on this year’s motto, instead of my typical fretting and mulling, I’m just going to start somewhere!
I told Mr. SP our Christmas gift to each other would be a new bed. Just what every guy wants, right?! Of course he got all technical and wanted to know what we were going to do with our old bed. #details So I did what any
deranged sane person would do before determining the direction of a room, I listed it all on Craigslist! And ooops if it didn’t all sell in a day! But by golly, it’s started now!
Yep…the bed, hope chest, and dressing table are all gone, and the dresser has been moved to another room (see the Before shots here). What’s in their place, you ask? Nothing. What are you going to do, you’re asking? I don’t know.
I do know our mattresses are on the floor, and clothes are piling up. And obviously, if you’re sleeping on the floor, there’s really no reason to make the bed. How about these for inspiring pictures?!
Our bedroom had become the resting place of all the random furniture that had no home…here’s the hodge-podge layout before.
Now it’s nothing but a mattress on the floor, and two side tables. And while the vision isn’t clear yet, I do have a plan.
*The tall tv cabinet moves to the wall previously occupied by the dresser, therefore opening up the view through the windows.
*Create a sitting area.
*The hope chest and dressing table had no use, so they are gone.
*The dark wood king-sized bed will be replaced by a softer, upholstered bed.
I’ve got a few design ideas, but of course I’m having a difficult time deciding…I’ll show you guys tomorrow and get your feedback. Do you think we’re crazy for starting this makeover Christmas week? My marriage is the most important part of my life, so I can’t think of a better use of my week off than to create a sanctuary for us! And after selling virtually everything in the room, I’d say we’re off to a good start.
