FINALLY, after much ado we have completed the Great Bedroom Switch-Up of 2018! As you may recall, I first posted about our bedroom space dilemma a couple months ago. Our teenage daughters could no longer function in their shared downstairs bedroom and after much debate, Husband and I downsized! You can read about the beginning of this little adventure here: The Great Bedroom Switch-Up Part 1…The Attic Master.
It has taken us two months, mostly because we have been out of town a bunch on weekends due the the girls’ travel volleyball and basketball seasons, but we FINALLY completed our new and improved, albeit tiny master bedroom!
We had painted the space when we moved the girls upstairs a couple months ago and Husband refinished a small-scale dresser that fit perfectly into the downstairs bedroom. The dresser is a staple in the room and Husband did a fantastic job re-finishing it to my exact specifications! You can read about his efforts in A Quick Dresser Re-Do in Our New and Improved, Slightly Smaller Bedroom.
I really only needed to decorate the space and figure out what to do with our clothes! I moved Husband’s clothes into the bedroom closet, he has less hanging clothes than I do and we managed to squeeze his in the little closet, next project – reinstall the closet door!
I purchased a lovely 8’x10′ indoor/outdoor rug from Sam’s Club for less than $100.00. Steal!! It is as beautiful as a higher priced option but doesn’t quite hold dog hair and is MUCH easier to clean! It also fits perfectly under our full size bed. Thankfully, Husband and I don’t mind to snuggle!
We added a floating shelf above the bed along with a hand-me-down night stand that fit perfectly in the room. I also convinced Husband to hang our small television on the wall adjacent to the bed. This was an endeavor because the walls in our home are plaster and SUPER difficult to hang heavy objects! So far, so good!
Overall, I am beyond pleased with our little makeover!
