We haven’t updated our bedroom since we were married. More than 15 years ago. I recently mentioned the decor we have to a friend. “That sounds like something I would have picked in college.”
Um, we were in college when we got married. So clearly our bedroom is a little outdated. The girls have outgrown their rooms more than once. We update, we paint, we redecorate. But when it comes to our own bedroom, it’s easy to let it go.
There are just too many other things to spend money on with a growing family. But as we’ve made our marriage a priority, it’s clear we need to take the same care with our space. The problem is figuring out how to completely redecorate an entire room on a meager budget.
We’re starting small. I received a gorgeous bedding set for my birthday last week to jump start the redesign. We’re swapping out all the old decorative prints for black & white photos from our travels. And, we’re exchanging our dust collectors for candles.
We’ve never had a headboard before — it’s just a big blank slate behind our king-sized bed. I’d love to do something with it to really finish off the room and tie the new look together. I just have to figure out how to do it on a budget.
