I got back from my vacation last weekend and had a wonderful time.
My son and I, along with six friends, spent a very relaxing week in St. John.
If you have ever thought about vacationing in the Caribbean I would highly recommend a trip to St. John. We rented a house high on a hill and woke up every morning to this beautiful sight.
But all good things must come to an end and it was back to work and back to reality this past Monday.
Now that I'm back I'm ready to start tackling a few projects around my house.
The first on my list is a redo of my master bedroom.
I decided to post some pictures of the room to help motivate me to get going on this project. This is the room as it always looks......I'm keeping it real here.
I painted this room over 10 years ago when we first moved in. I liked the dark color at the time but I am ready to lighten things up.
I didn't like the comforter I had on the bed so I took it off months ago and never got around to replacing it.
The nightstands are a matching set that were purchased over 20 years ago. I'm not into the matching look anymore so I going to make some changes there. I had a lamp on the right nightstand at one time but I think it went to school with my son.
The black bench will be replaced too with something with a better scale.
The room has nice ceiling detail.
The fan will stay......at this stage of my life it is necessary for those hot flashes!
Nice wall of windows. Window treatment will be changed.
The ficus tree will definitely be gone. I can't believe I still have it in the room!
The dresser with TV will stay, as is.
This wall has double doors leading into the bathroom. The other room you see in the picture with the windows is my closet.
So there's the brief "before" tour of my bedroom.
This project is going to take some time but I will keep you updated on my progress.
My makeover goals:
1. Lighter paint color.
2. New bedding and window treatments.
3. More architectural interest.
4. Repurpose nightstands.
5. Replace bench.
6. Add reading area.
7. Better lighting.
I know there are a lot of talented people out there so if you have any suggestions I am all ears!!
Have a great weekend.
