When we moved into our home over 3 years ago, it was a total renovation. Every room had to be redone. Not that we were picky, but we couldn't live with mold growing and plywood floors. The Master bedroom had rotting walls and floors that had to be taken out...there was much work to be done. We decorated our room and loved it.
But as the time has passed we have felt that it was dark and a little dingy. The bookcase we bought at Walmart came crashing down a few month ago. We sawed off the half and used the bottom...but still too many books were in our room. Not so romantic of a sight!
Some of the furniture we picked up here and there, we liked at the time. After a while it just seemed to be old and grungy.
A couple of years ago we went to a Marriage Conference. The speaker for the ladies session said that the bedroom should be like a bed and breakfast...clean, decorated nicely, with no photos of your children! ;o) It should be a romantic oasis, not a place for laundry. I told Patrick that I would love to do a little updating in our room.
I was so surprised when for my birthday in May, I opened up gorgeous wooden P, K and & for our bedroom with $50 to spend. I was so excited! Then, a couple other gift cards were given to me. I had a total of $135 to spend on a new romantic room for my sweetie and I! So I scoured Pinterest and came up with a plan. I've had Patrick working all week helping me and I'm so excited with how it is turning out! Pictures coming soon!
