Mom's Serene Bedroom {Reveal}

I'm home from the race this past weekend and I finally have a few moments to share the final photos of my mother's bedroom makeover; I wanted to wait until she returned home from vacation on Friday and was able to see it herself -- so now it's your turn! As a reminder, here's the story of my fabulous mother and why I felt like she deserved a surprise room makeover.


I spent several days down in Utah two weeks ago as a single mother / bedroom makeover project foreman. This was a big job to complete in 4 1/2 days as it entailed painting walls and trim/doors, building and upholstering a king-sized headboard, finishing two new nightstands and spending ridiculous amounts of time at Lowe's taking advantage of their generous cutting policy so I could make the paneled wall behind the bed.

Here's a reminder of what the room looked like before:


And here it is after:













Recognize those nightstands? Yep... not actually for my guest room. Mwahaha. Thanks again to Joe for building them.


 

A giant thank you goes out to my sister Buffy and my niece Ruth, who spent a great deal of time with me helping me paint, ironing and sewing, learning the wonderful nuances of Top 40 pop, keeping my kiddos happy, and then feeding us dinner each night (thanks Hart!!).

Room details will be coming in a day or two... hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

  7. Anna, you continue to be an inspiration. I hope to do something like this for my kids when I visit them next time. They just bought a bigger house and I know it will need a touch or two. Blessings to you and Buffy...you know I love your Mama to pieces.

  9. Lovely room, lucky mom. This is better than any t.v. makeovers I've seen. I'm inspired to adapt a couple of ideas.

  10. I'm sure she was thrilled - it is beautiful! I need someone to make over my bedroom because the ideas I've had for it so far have not been all that fantastic.

  13. Find out what the labels on video games mean. This is especially smart to do if you are a parent. You want to make sure that your children only see things appropriate for their age, so pay close attention to those labels and know what each rating means before you buy a game. https://www.filepedia.net/
