It's Time for a Makeover

My husband and I have been in our new home for a year now.
We were all gung ho in the beginning and knocked out a lot of the painting of our main living spaces but now its time to finish at least one room.
I think that it should be our bedroom first.

I have been pinning lately a few things that I would like to do -
I dont have a great picture of how our bedroom looks currently, but I will do my best to kind of give you a visual.
This is our bedroom: back when we first moved and decided to paint it.

This picture here represents what it looks like when the sun hits the room.

We have dark furniture in our bedroom, that honestly needs to be touched up with some love - I really want to replace the bed, but that is not happening any time soon, so I keep toying with the idea of recovering the headboard and baseboard.

I have been toying with painting a darker colored accent wall behind our bed -
I'm thinking of something like this:

Then we have a sitting area to the left side of our bed that I have been trying to find the right thing to put there and not making it look too crowded - I have been thinking of something similar to this day bed look in this bedroom:

And we definitely need accessories, new bedding for the cooler months, something to go above our bed, curtains and we want to repaint our master bathroom...
Just to kind of give it a complete look.

Guess I really need to get started.
Its one of those projects that if I mention it to the husband he will lose all motivation and we won't get started for 3 months. I think I am just going to have to take the bull by the horns and just start stockpiling some things to go in our room - especially during Memorial Day (SALES!)

Have you been decorating and refreshing your house lately?

  1. We went all gung ho too at first and then it all came to a screeching halt! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. I'm trying to get my spring stuff out but I'm tooo lazy because it's so much to do. I may start in the kitchen and bathroom.

  3. I love all of these pictures!!!

  4. Your inspirations are great!

    We were gung ho at first too and then we just stopped.

    Our bedroom needs some major love. I can't wait to see what you do.
