I have to laugh continuously with the title of “Guest Bedroom Makeover, Progress Update”! Did I say progress, this is what makes me laugh. I need to change that title to “Stand Still.” I started my guest bedroom makeover in March, 4 months ago. Here is where I am at today.
Not much progress has happened here. I have this bedroom makeover hanging over my head and I thought if I updated you all that would motivate me to finish this thing before the leaves begin to fall. Notice, I said leaves instead of snow! I am hopeful that I will have it done before the change of seasons. Here is where I started.
This was what it looked like when the youngest son was occupying it. We moved him upstairs to the attic bedrooms and I can tell you it still looks like this with all the stuff laying on the floor and things not put away! This is the main reason I moved him, so I don’t have to look at the mess everyday. Out of sight out of mind.
Here is my To Do List:
Repair ceiling stain Remove wall paper border Paint walls and ceiling Clean carpets
Change out electrical covers and switches
Replace fan with new lighting fixture
Strip and polyurethane 3 doors
Paint dresser, armoire and nightstand
Repaint headboard(long story, will share another time)
Purchase new mattress
Purchase comforter and bed accessories
Purchase blinds or shades
Make window coverings
Decorate walls and room
As you can see, I still have most of the room to complete. My biggest hurdle at this point is getting the furniture painted. Once I have the furniture done, I am hoping the rest will quickly fall into place.
I am hoping you will hold me accountable so I can move on to the next tear it up project!
