Tackle It Tuesday: Bedroom Makeover Dreams

Here is the first installment in a new feature to Fancybelle Living...Tackle It Tuesday!

Since I had a spinal fusion a little over a week ago, I'm not up for tackling any real housework anytime soon. But I'm sure getting used to supervising all of my helpers (parents, siblings, in-laws, friends, etc.) who are watching over me and the kids!

In between all of this directing, napping and resting, I'm watching a ton of HGTV home design programs and dreaming of my very own bedroom makeover. My husband and I have a relatively big room with twin closets (score!) and plenty of space to move our assorted furniture around.

When we moved in, I was on pregnant and on full bedrest, so my hubby just set up the room like our old apartment and quickly moved on to more important things...like his computer. Thus, the room has a rather uninspired furniture arrangement....add to that a totally overflowing shop workstation and more yarn that any cabinet can handle.

According to my HGTV "research", we're currently missing a very crucial element: a focal point. Enter...a new bed frame! What I'm most proud about this Tuesday is finally convincing (guilting) my husband into packing up my mom's beautiful oak sleigh bed frame and taking it home to Minnesota for us (me). See...no one can refuse an ailing back surgery patient!

I'm so excited to get back home in a week or two and start decorating!

Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. The project can be little or big – whatever you want.
(It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)
