We are less than 5 days away from moving into our new townhouse and I am so excited. I haven’t been enjoying the packing part, but I am so looking forward to the extra space. And with more space comes the opportunity for me to redecorate our home and make it something new and exciting for us all.
I have a lot of furniture, and I had to put a lot of it in storage when we downsized. It will be pretty neat to pull out this furniture that has been sitting dormant for over a year and try to make it new again. I also want to purchase some new pieces to mix in with the pieces that we already have to make it new and chic.
I am really looking forward to redoing my daughter’s bedroom. Her current bedroom is really an office that we converted into a bedroom for space sake, but now she will have a bigger room. We didn’t decorate her current room at all, and she is used to having a fun room that has been personalized for her, so I purchased her new bedding as well as new pillows and pink letters for her name in her room. I also want to purchase some paint to make her a chalkboard area on her wall so she can write on it and play school.
I also plan to purchase a new bed and headboard for my room (I am giving my current leather bedroom set to my son), so I will be visiting STL Beds to get something a little more feminine and dainty.
For the living room, we will be utilizing the same suede sofa and couch that we have now, but I do plan on sprucing it up with some colored pillows. I also plan on going thrifting to pick up a few new pieces to make what’s old new again.
The best part of moving is making your new space truly yours. In the next few weeks, I will be updating you with our progress with before and afters.
Who knows! Maybe I can give the folks at HGTV a run for their money!
Do you have any redecorating ideas? Please share!
