Update: The Overhaul

Checking in! I’ve started the renovation of my bedroom. I spent the last few days clearing everything out of my room, tossing things I didn’t want or didn’t need, and prepared a pretty good pile of garage sale junk. So hopefully I’ll make a bit of money back.

After the “purge” I got some color swatches from Lowe’s. Picking out the paint was tricky. I went through four samples of paint before I found one that I absolutely love. I started paiting last night and I’m getting ready to do the second coat now. It’s a dark musty purple, really pretty ^^ I also got this gorgeous Asian screen from Hobby Lobby (my new favorite place ever) and also I’ve ordered a really pretty mirror and a nightstand from Amazon. My desk has also been ordered, and I did get it from WalMart, but what can you do? I needed something that would be small and have lots of shelving, so if it’s cheaply made I’ll just have my grandpa take a look at it and see if he can’t reinforce the questionable parts.

All in all, I’m spending way more money than what I should, or even have. So, I hope this is totally worth it.

    My boyfriend and I are looking to buy a house in the coming months and I can’t wait to decorate!

    Good luck with painting and I’m going to need TIPS when I get to that point :)

    I’m glad that you have fallen in love with hobby lobby. That place is one of my favorite stores, and there isn’t one is Sarasota. BOOOO! We have a Michael’s, but let’s face it, Hobby Lobby is wayyyyy better.
    I want to see some pictures of the progress, please.
