Master Disaster

Yesterday I decided my room needed a good cleaning. But its never enough for me to just dust and vacuum a room. No, I have to stand in the room, think about what I dislike about it, then fix it. 

Bedroom dilemma? Hand-me-down furniture that dwarfs the entire room!

Free fix? Take the hutch off my dresser (which = one less thing to dust!) and move the dresser into the closet.

Of course it wasn't as easy as just dragging the beast in there myself. I had to raise the rod up 16" so our clothes wouldn't drag on top of the dresser. (See that little patch of duct tape on the wall? Ahh yeah, I've got a small repair added to the "to do" list)

I even rolled all of my husband's ties and put them in a basket that I had floating around the house.

Once again, I couldn't stop there.

I had to rearrange the whole room! My husband was so thrilled when he came home from work and I said, "Hey babe, wanna help me move the bed!?"

Thrilled I tell you.

But he did, and it looks great.

As God would have it that same day, CSN stores offered me the opportunity to do a product review.

How awesome is that?!

I'm thinking...something to get the ball rolling on this bedroom makeover!?

One thing I've always regretted in my decorating, "Not making the bedroom a priority" (Tip a la Nester)

Stay tuned!


  1. It's invigorating to have a "new" room...

    I purchased these discs (Moving Men) for moving and it's relived my husband of moving duties.

    Have fun!

  2. Boy, you have been a busy bee. Moving the dresser in the closet is a fabulous idea if you have room. It sure does clear up a ton of space. I can't wait to see what you do with the room. Hugs, Marty

  3. glad I found you! I just redid our Master after a year and half of not even touching it. Go for it, you'll love it! But I'm kind of glad I waited because I had no clue what to do in there, until I finally got inspired. Good luck!! :)
