What’s Up Wednesday

Well after a month of some very needed time off from the blog – I am back 🙂 This past month has been full of work, wedding planning and the start of a very busy summer full of events! This weekend is always one of my favorites as not only is it a long weekend that signifies the kick off of Summer but its my birthday weekend! The weather this weekend was not ideal but as today is the last day of May the nice weather should totally be here soon!

I don’t really have an answer for this question!

Our Master Inspiration Board

We have a few projects we want to tackle this year in terms of our humble home. We would like to get our basement finished, put a new deck in the backyard, and re-do our master bedroom. First up on our list is redoing our bedroom, I have spent so much time on Pinterest figuring out what I want to do with the tiny space and I finally have enough to make an inspiration board!

When we first bought our home, I wanted to move in asap, so we did probably the stupidest thing…we painted every room in the house the same color, except for the bathroom. BAD IDEA. And now that I feel like my design likes have changed I have been itching to change our bedroom. It also doesn’t help that the furniture is mine from when I was in high school.

And of course, we can’t forget about the little things such as dĂ©cor. We have a mirror that I purchased from Home Goods months ago – but were waiting to re-do the bedroom before putting it up. We have some photos on the wall that we need to decide if we want to keep them or change them out. We still need to decide on curtains, which to me is one of the hardest things – lets just say we haven’t had any curtains hanging up in the bedroom since we moved in!

So, those are my master bedroom ideas so far, but who’s to say they won’t change before its completed.
