I'm pumped about summer for several reasons.
No work. Sleeping in. Uganda (got my passport, yea!)

and....finally concentrating on my bedroom.

I don't know about you, but my bedroom has been at the bottom of my list since we've owned a house. It's truly uninspired. I'm almost ashamed to give you "before" pics, but I will....and I will be cringing when I upload them. (It's that bad).

I've always heard you need to focus on your bedroom first.....making it your sanctuary. Why it's always on our bottom rung of 'to do's', I don't know why. Maybe because it's such a challenge.

So this summer, I'm tending to the neglected, unaffected, uninspired room.

New paint color (I loathed it's current 'tan'....ugh!)

Me, painting and distressing some great furniture.

Rustic art on the walls.

Beauty. Sanctuary. Bliss.

Somewhat like these.....(maybe not so white I do have children!)

On a final note, OMG. Have you visited the "Cottage of the Month" archives from
The Old Painted Cottage? Talk about inspiration. Love, love.....

Cool! I can't wait to see what you do with your bedroom. Mine always ends up being a repository for random things too. Those bedrooms you showed are great inspiration, and actually might be pretty simple to emulate. Good luck!

Flo, I'm right there with ya' on the master bedroom last but not least issue. We moved into our house almost a year ago and there are still U-haul boxes in the corner. hmmm... what is in them and why haven't I looked in so long? Thanks for reminder and inspiration ;) Can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a great day - Jenn
