09 Feb cheap & easy bedroom makeover
The master bed is the epicenter of our house. The life force. The birthplace of chi, or whatever. The beginning and end to our daily stories.
It could be the sleep deprivation, but I glance at that bed wistfully all. day. long. Sometimes I work there, propped up against pillows with my laptop instead of at my office desk. It’s just a calming, soothing place.
My entire house can be slathered in peanut butter. There could be dirty diapers hanging from the ceiling fans. Dishes piled high in the sink. But, the master bed is always made up in my house. Always.
Ok, that’s a lie. It’s not always made. But I do try to make the bed most mornings. It’s a 30-second chore that kicks the day off on a good note.
I also contemplate bedding more than I probably should. You might remember we’ve been using this set since not long after we moved in. But I’d been wanting to change it up. Try a different color scheme.
So let’s just say I was feeling groovy the day I saw City Scene bedding on HauteLook for 75% off and clicked “add to cart.” Once it arrived, despite the low price ($50 plus shipping), I had some buyer’s remorse. The blue was a taaaaaaad blue-er than it looked online. But, Kris really liked the mod pattern, and so we kept it as our “backup” bedding.
Yesterday I decided to give the backup bedding a whirl. The kids LOVE when I change sheets, because it’s the only time I let them jump on the bed.
