As I’ve mentioned, Laura is hosting another organizational challenge, and may I just say: “Yay!” ? I’m so excited to get in on this one and I’ve finally picked which project we are going to do: Our master bedroom!

The challenge may already be in full swing, but I haven’t been completely idle – no, I have a plan! (But you expected that, didn’t you?) 🙂

My goal: To make our master bedroom “ours” (and not just “mine” or “his) and to make it an appealing retreat for my hubby. I will accomplish this by combining the rich and elegant elements that I crave with the calming and simple elements my husband needs along with great organizational strategies to create and maintain a peaceful haven.

Let’s take a photo tour…















Yikes! Did you see all that stuff?? After assessing the room, it’s problems, it’s advantages and the necessary solutions I have determined that there are four large “problem” challenges to overcome – in addition to a bunch of little ones of course!

  1. Laundry – preventing piles of clothes (clean, dirty or otherwise) from taking over our room by purging and creating a space for dirty laundry.
  2. Bed – taking the bed from eyesore to cozy by using or tossing the current frame and buying or making a new one if necessary, mending the quilt, purchasing pillows for the shams, and purchasing risers for the bed.
  3. Closet – making the most of our closet space by clearing the clutter, organizing the space, and setting up a system
  4. Bathroom – creating additional storage and maximizing the counter space by utilizing wall space.

I’m sure it’s no surprise that I have a very detailed plan of action. As I sat down to brain storm I came up with 5 pages of notes! I have divided the whole project into separate tasks to get it done, and I’ve grouped them together into groups that could be done in one day. Wow, I am a plan freak aren’t I? I’ll enlist help from friends to help paint and from Big Daddy with the power tools and the bed frame but other than that I am on my own.

We’re just nineteen days away from having our finished bedroom!!!

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
