Yep, it’s finally time: We’ve chosen our first home improvement project. So, what will it be, you say? I’ve showed you my 5 least favorite home features. I’ve lamented about my completely paneled room. But none of those things made the first project list. Why? Because right now, our master bedroom (embarrassingly) looks like this:
Yes, it’s a mattress on the floor. Our previous bed frame couldn’t handle another move, so we said RIP and decided to start fresh in the new house. And then there’s this sad little area:
Needless to say, this room needs some TLC. But since it’s our first project, we’re focusing more on cosmetics than the bones of the house, which will give us a chance to bulk up our DIY muscles. Plus, Josh and I figure that we’ll appreciate having a sanctuary away from the dust and chaos when we’re peeling up orange carpeting and sanding walls in the rest of the house. So what do we have in store for the room?
So far, we’re thinking a relaxed, modern natural theme…
…with a DIY ombre-painted dresser….
…a chic, minimalist vanity….
…and a (homemade!) plush upholstered headboard.
The rest of the plan, including what to do about that carpeting, is still in the works. Next stop: Paint colors! What would you do in this room? What was your first project in your first house? Tell me about it in the comments below.
