Reno Update = Part 2


After 10 years our Dyson finally died, after asking for options on Facebook I switched to the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe . I am highly impressed, I vacuumed my entire house yesterday and was so in love!! Granted it is newer than my Dyson, but it cleans my tile better, is lighter weight, is easier to navigate under my counters and furniture, the only con is that the cord is a lot shorter so I had to keep moving it. The construction has so much dust on my floors and I vacuum every single day to try and keep my sanity. We are finally coming to the end, hopefully we should be done by next Friday!

I thought I would share a few of the ideas I have for the room, the first being the amazing pallet wall from Stikwood! I have a 22ft wall upstairs that I want to make into a statement wall that I can also use for a photo backdrop, the weather doesn't always cooperate here in Texas.


I fell deeply in love with this look from their Instagram feed, it's a mix of all their colors and it's perfect! The wood is on the way to my house, but my contractor needs me to pick a wall color today, so after a bunch of recommendation yesterday on Periscope I decided to go with Mindful Grey from Sherwin Williams.

Houzz.
I want a warmer grey/taupe color to compliment the wall without being too dark. The flooring guy is coming in about an hour, I am hoping something strikes me because right now I'm at a loss. Dark floors would look bomb, but I can't handle being able to see every spec of dust and dirt and with all the boxes and unpacking we do it would drive me crazy.  I think probably something cool and medium wood toned.



I went with this ceiling fan from Lamps Plus, I wanted simple and brushed nickel. Shelly Kelly and I are going to measure for furniture today and hit Ikea to see what we can come up with - we need some pretty big work areas and I'm not sure where else to find large {non ugly} tables.




Per usual I make everything harder by starting other projects at the same time, I already repainted my master bedroom and ordered a new bed, which I absolutely love! We ordered this one from Nebraska Furniture Mart. I'm not sure if I love love the white bedding with the bed, but I'm going to hold off for now.



My real challenge right now is that I can't find any furniture to go with it, I guess because I don't have a great idea of what I want, but now that the bed is in I can't even decide on a color. My new wall color is Behr Tahitian Sky and I'm obsessed, such a light fun color!

This next week they will be repainting a few of our rooms and a bunch of our ceiling that was damaged in the great storm last month, I'm praying nothing sets us back so we can all relax and enjoy Christmas without the mess hanging around.

  1. I love that bed! It's beautiful! I think you should totally go for the pallet wall. It would be a great statement and would definitely be a great backdrop for pictures!

  3. I switched to Shark after my Dyson died a few months ago. I have this model http://www.amazon.com/Shark-Rotator-NV752-Lift-Away-Bordeaux/dp/B00X7R1FZ2 and LOVE IT!! The only con for me is the dirt container fills up pretty fast because it's not very big (I have a dog that sheds A LOT). Highly recommend!!

  4. Pallet wall= <3 Maybe a couple accent chairs from World Market to go with that bomb headboard. Their clearances can be substantial. I keep an eye out even when I don't need stuff :/ If Ikea is a bust you can always find old tables on CL and refurbish, (probably the same cost as Ikea) but putting Ikea stuff together is a nightmare!
    Did you end up doing the barn door? I must see!!

  5. I painted our living room Mindful Gray and it's amazing. Best decision I ever made! You won't be disappointed!

    1. Agreed! My LR and guest bedroom are Mindful Gray, and I love it. Every accent color works with it!

  6. You could always build your own tables out of old doors... :)

  7. Argh I love the new bed but it drives me crazy that the builder did not design a proper bed wall so that you can have a king size bed with actual nightstands on either side. I am an interior designer by trade and bad room layouts (not your furniture layout) makes me bananas. Go to Houzz and search bedrooms with sky blue walls and you should get lots of inspiration ideas for bedding and furniture finishes.

    1. Totally agree! These are the things you learn when you buy your first house - I'll do better next go round :)

  8. I have seen beds similar to yours with all glass/mirrored end tables and it looked amazing. Just a thought. I know they are super expensive.

  9. I love the look of mirrored end tables...and maybe the rest white? to keep it light...

  10. ED Reverser

    Many studies have been conducted trying to reverse the damage caused by various types of brain injuries. This field of virtual rehabilitation is relatively new, but the results are positive. Those of us who are gamers know how addictive gaming is. There is no question as to how many hours of rehabilitation a patient may actually feel they need once they get started. It's a win, win situation.

  11. Do you have a local pallet assembly company? I have one here and I went to them for pallet wood boards for our rec room. 50 cents per board and they are light so you can stain and paint some/all to get your desired look.

  12. I wanted an accent pallet wall but my husband didn't want to break down pallets. We used vinyl flooring planks instead. They are a grey/light wood and they look like wood grain. They were so easy to install and trim to size! I love, love my wall! I get soooo many compliments!
