An Organized Oasis Of Tranquility

I'm determined to give our bedroom a makeover, because at the moment it feels more like a messy storage room with a bed in the middle. I don't enjoy going to bed and waking up in a room with bare walls, cluttered surfaces, and clothes heaped in piles on the floor. (Yes, we are savages that live out of laundry baskets, instead of folding our clothes and putting them neatly away in drawers. We have dressers, but apparently our brains never made the connection.)

When Dennis and I moved into our house, we were more focused on home repairs and making the rest of the house presentable. We figured the bedroom was a room no one else needed to see, so we didn't make it a priority. We kept saying, "We'll get around to it." Three years later, it's still in the same sad state. And we're tired — literally! We've both been sleeping so poorly. 😕

If we could do it over, I think the bedroom should have been the very first priority (OK, maybe after taking care of the basement flood, and after the leaky roof issue.) But what were we thinking? Sure, it's a room no one else has to see, but WE have to see it, and spend time in it ...  EVERY NIGHT. Where's the logic? Dennis and I (and most people for that matter) deserve to wake up in an organized, oasis of tranquility! 

So this month, I'm going to make our room just that.

I even started a Pinterest board for inspiration. And of course, it's going to have a hella lot of grey/mauve. 😜  If it means getting a better night's sleep, I think it's totally worth the time, money, and effort.
