The master bedroom makeover!
And, because repainting, sourcing furniture and artwork and arranging everything to best suit your needs doesn't just happen overnight (or even over the course of a weekend or week), we decided to call in some help to get one room done, so that we have a sanctuary while we search for things like that comfy yet stylish chair and the perfect shade of paint.
With the help of Lisa Canning, who you may know from Marriage Under Construction, we are getting ready to makeover our master bedroom.
It's currently in a bit of a state. We don't love the nursery blue walls, and obviously, there was some rewiring done so it's currently working the blotchy patched look. We do like our two enormous wardrobes (not shown) which take up the wall facing the bed, leaving just enough space to hopefully create a vanity between them. But, overall, the space is kind of dull.
To start the makeover, we had to figure out our style (read more on that here) and tell Lisa what we wanted from the room — basically a relaxing space that better reflects our personalities, along with a place for me to get ready in the morning, as Mr. Speedy and I are currently tripping over each other in our teeny tiny bathroom every morning.
And, of course, there's a bit of a twist — after the move, rewiring, patching, etc., we don't have much of a redecorating budget!
And, while Lisa's known for doing things inexpensively, this job will certainly be a challenge, as we're aiming for a total budget of — wait for it — $200.
Thankfully, she's up for the challenge, and is currently working on her plans, which will be unveiled early next week. I'll keep you posted as we work to take the room from a blah space to a relaxing place!
