This month I am trying to complete projects that were started before and after my moms stroke. Several seasons have passed by and we’ve been busy here in TN. While I was in SC with mom, my hubby had a our basement garage converted into a good sized bedroom with double closets. When mom and I moved back in August 2017, Mike and I moved our high school graduate from his domain in the basement to our master bedroom upstairs and us downstairs so I could be close to my mom. Mike is in the process of building us a Walk-In Closet (Yay!). I can’t wait for our belongings to find a better place than boxes and piles around our room.
We also cleaned out the stacks of papers, blankets, and most of the junk that had been cluttering our guest room upstairs, mentioned in this post. I still need to relocate the armoire to mom’s room for storage, sell the love-seat, tear down the navy all-in-one shelving unit, and paint. New closet doors will replace the hollow wood sliding ones and BAM, we’ll be ready to decorate!
I have decided to have a desk in our bedroom to work from vs using the guest room as an office. I believe our guest room will stay in use all year with visitors for the Holidays and those traveling to see mom.
Guest Bedroom: The design plan for this project is to combine a guest bedroom, mobile desk, and media in one location. The plan to accomplish this is to include a Murphy Bed that can be put away when not in use or daybed with pop up trundle, wall mounted television with a wall of shelving, large room rug,and a narrow desk on casters with a small seat or bench. The theme is Elegant Comfort.
We’re going to keep the walls neutral and light because this is a small room and keep the decorations functional yet relaxing.
Keep checking for updates. We’re also almost finished with our Laundry Closet turned Pantry! Check back for pictures on that project as well.
Beginning after the first of the year we are taking a break from our home and starting renovations on our son’s condo in Nashville, TN. We have to get a structural engineer to review some things for us there then we will be able to move forward. This will be a project that will last for several months, up to a year. I will show before and after and take you through the process. This condo was purchased as a fixer upper and we have barely scratched the surface. We have started painting the walls (not finished) since we closed on this property in July 2015. I am excited to be completing some of these projects and to live more functionally.
Until next time…xoxox, Dawn
