Our bedroom switch is mostly complete, with the exception of extra lamps, shelves, etc. that no longer have a home. I don't want to get rid of them because they could come in handy, but for now we don't have anywhere to put them. I am working at a snail's pace on our room mostly because I have reached the point where I have to sew. More specifically, sew curtains. I have sewn one set and I am dreading sewing the other set because I pretty much hated making the first set. I'll get there, but I have to drag my feet first. It's just how I work. If you want to see a sneak peek of what is going on in the master bedroom, click here. Or you can check out my bed skirt and jewelry display. It's all I've got for now. You can also keep an eye on my instagram account for other peeks into what I am working on. My handle is allisonmaestri.
Onto Sawyer's room. You may remember that it used to look like this back when it was our room. Crazy crowded.
We cleared out our huge bed and all of our junk and began transforming it into Sawyer's room. I didn't repaint, change the curtains, or do any other projects in here. He is at an age where an investment in room decor/design is kind of pointless. In a couple of years he might care more, so a bedroom makeover for him in way on the back burner. As long as there is a home for his trains/cars/monster trucks he is happy.
It's really hard to get a picture of the whole space due to the room's teeny tiny size, so I broke out my fish eye lens so you can better see what everything looks like.
It is the perfect space for him. He has a few toys in his room, but most of them are kept in his downstairs playroom. I know I say this with every single post I write about our room switch, but I am so happy we did it. It's been so good for all of us.
In June I am going to be attempting to finish our room. Still on the agenda: finish the curtains (ugh), make a headboard, finish our bedding, add accessories and pretty storage, and get some art up on the walls. Have you ever made a headboard? I'd love for you to share pictures or tips or the tutorial you used. Leave a link in the comments - I'd love to check it out.
