I gotta admit, I was in need of some inspiration for today’s Metamorphosis Monday post. This is my favorite post of the week, but I was a little stumped this time. I found my inspiration at the Nesting Place. The Nester shared her master bedroom makeover, and (insert fake surprise here) it’s beautiful and inspiring.
That got me thinkin’. And when I get to thinkin’, it can get scary. My kids leave the room to escape the chores involved, and my husband hugs his wallet just a little tighter.
My, I mean our, master bedroom could really use some work. Not only is it not beautiful, it’s not welcoming, relaxing or romantic. It has sort of become a dumping ground.
The clothes on the bed are awaiting a trip to the Goodwill store. See, I giveth, and I taketh away.
Ugly, ancient and almost disgusting recliners live here. The furniture is solid oak, but the color is NASTY.
Someone leaves their dry cleaning in a heap in the corner, and the sweeper next to the TV. The TV is actually OLDER than the chair.
I can’t believe I have actually shown you my bedroom.
Where’s the transformation, you ask? This is Metamorphosis Monday, after all.
Well, my friends, what I have shown you here is the caterpillar. Caterpillars are ugly, just like my bedroom. But they both have the POTENTIAL to be something beautiful, after a slow and steady transformation. And that process is what I plan to share with you over the next few Mondays. A slow and steady transformation, using some stuff I already have, some new purchases and a very small budget. Isn’t that how most of us accomplish a room redesign? Sometimes I wish I had the means to just start over and buy everything new and copy some high end designer bedroom. But what would be the fun in that?
I hope you join me for the process, we’ll share some good ideas along the way.
