The Master Bedroom

So, what have we been up to these last few weeks? Well, a little of this and a little of that. Mostly school, work, more work, unpacking, cleaning, organizing and a little decorating. Oh...and fixing all the things that keep breaking - the truck windows, the hot tub, the get the idea. It's been an interesting last few weeks.

Despite everything else that has been going on, we have managed to work a little on making our house a home. I have been a little overwhelmed in trying to decide which rooms to work on first. We finally decided that the master bedroom would work best. We have always wanted new bedroom furniture. We have greatly appreciated all our hand me downs but we are starting to out grow them! So, it was to The Dump.

We were pleasantly surprised by their selection. However, I would say it is a place to buy, not browse - luckily, we had already shopped the more conventional furniture stores. So, knowing what our other options were, it was easy to decide that the The Dump had a suite that was affordable and that we really liked.

I also decided to make a few trips to Bed, Bath and Beyond and Garden Ridge to finish the room out. It was fun making a few new flower arrangements! There are still a few things on my to do list (a rug, curtains, painting the walls, etc) but I am SO happy with the way things are going so far!


  1. I really like what you have done with the master bedroom so far. I know that you want a few more things to finish it off, but you are off to a good start.

  2. AWESOME!! Looks great and cozy!
