Master Bedroom Thrift Store Finds

Hey! I'm so excited about our master bedroom project that I just have to give you another peak of what's happening.

We went to visit my sister and brother-in-law this weekend and while we were gone, my fabulous in-laws came over and did some major demolition in the room. There used to be a tiny closet in the corner of the room that enclosed the chimney. They took out the closet and they moved our bedroom door over to where it used to be. Next step is closing off the wall and fixing the floor. You can't really see it in this picture, but where the closet wall was, the wood floor is missing.

AND, last week I was able to go to some thrift stores because my wonderful parents watched my toddler and gave me a day to myself. I found a whole bunch of amazing things for SUPER cheap that I can't wait to decorate our room with! (P.S. If you're from around me and need a good thrift store to go to, Sell-It-Here in Lafayette is great.) So, here is a sneak peak of my finds. Eek! I'm so excited for this!

I will be doing some before and after posts once I get these things finished.

Master Bedroom Remodel

So you know how I told you a couple of posts ago that we had lots of projects going on? I wanted to give you a sneak peak of our biggest one! We are completely remodeling 2 of the 3 rooms in our upstairs. Well, technically 1 of them isn't even a room yet. It's a loft that we're making into a room for the baby. But first we have to do all this stuff to the master bedroom (which I'm actually excited about, because it's been sorely neglected!).

First, here is a picture of what it looked like when we bought our house. Lovely, right?

And here are a couple pictures of what it looked like as we've been living in it. Not horrible, but as I said, I've neglected this room in the decorating process. We put new paint on the walls, took out the carpet (and found original, unfinished hardwood underneath!), and added our furniture.

And here is a preview of our makeover. We are in the process of adding 2 new closets to our room (they're almost done!), so we can knock out the closet that is in the room currently. We have to move our door to where the old closet is so we have room to add a bathroom upstairs.
(Just had to add this picture of our little "helper" because he's adorable)

I'm so excited for the construction part to be over so I can decorate! I made a little "inspiration" board for what I'm wanting to do with the room. Most of the room will be done in light blues and whites. And (as of right now) will have just a few coral accents. Aka, a few candles, maybe a pillow or two and a vase of flowers. I am also going to put a reading chair with a footstool (that I'm hoping to build myself) and a little round table in the alcove in between the new closets. I have a beautiful vision in my head and I hope it turns out the way I'm envisioning!

What do you think? I can't wait to get it done!
P.S. Here's the final reveal!

Cozy Coupe Remodel

A month or so ago, I found this cozy coupe car at a garage sale for free (who doesn't love free stuff?). My little man LOVES anything to do with cars, tractors, bikes, etc. so I figured he'd love it, even if it wasn't in the best of conditions. And I knew my handy husband could fix it up eventually.

I had seen lots of different "remodels" of cozy coupes on Pinterest and so I went to the store and bought some spray paint.

Here is the before and after! I don't have a great before picture, but you can definitely see the amount of work needed to overhaul it!

Aren't my models cute?

My husband also has plans to add a steering wheel, "headlights" and reflectors to it. What do you think?
