I have been blogging for a few years now, and there are some things that I have noticed. One of them is, you don’t need to see me hang every picture in my home. So, for those moments when I do a little tweak here, a nip there, a picture hung on a wall, I don’t write about it. However, a bunch of nips and tucks, and pictures hung can completely transform a room.
I was looking through the home tour page of this here blog, and I noticed that my Master Bedroom went from this:
And none of you knew anything about it. I was feeling terrible that I hadn’t updated any of you on the inner workings or smaller updates as they were happening after I saw how different everything looked!
Over the course of a year, I have made so many nips and tucks I thought I should share, because apparently NOW there is a WOW factor.
Last Christmas, Brian and I decided it was time to upgrade from a Queen to a King Sized bed. With that came new sheets and bedding and some toss pillows.
Then, because I couldn’t handle the curtains not going anymore, I found some cute ones on way way clearance at Target.
Brian when on a business trip to San Francisco he bought a gorgeous print of the Golden Gate Bridge. So, for our anniversary I had it framed, and then had a few other things printed and framed from all of the places we’ve been together to switch up the artwork in our room and give a little more color to our room.
We are currently in the process of playing musical furniture in the house. The boys needed some more clothing storage so we gave one of our dressers, we took the white one from the living room after I was able to get a writing desk and some new bookshelves in there (reveals to come).
I also added Caroline’s bookshelf to serve as my night stand because she now had more storage in her room with one of the boys’ dressers (and round and round we go).
Brian’s night stand stayed the same… well except for one little addition from his adoring fans.
Finally, I added some other small touches to make it seem relaxing in there like some candles, the books I’m currently reading, and my crochet basket to work on my blanket while I watch TV during naptime (yes, I’m working on a blanket).
So, I’ve learned my lesson. I will not show every picture I hang, but I will try to perhaps show more stages of the process of changes that happen around here.
Now, to take a snooze in my cozy little hideaway.
