Jodi from The Glittered Barn LLC joined my 30-Day August Upgrade Challenge because she wanted to fix up her bedroom. You know how it is when you move into a new place–you focus all your time on getting every place other than your bedroom together, because it’s the place people are less likely to see. Well, she decided she was going to work on her space because she deserves an oasis! Good for her! Women put themselves last waaaaayy too much.
I met Jodi last year at the Haven conference, who just happens to live here in Maryland too. She and I literally chat every day on Facebook. She tells me about this project….and that project….and seriously, if you thought *I* had crazy energy, this chick’s got me beat. LOL
Okay, so here’s Jodi’s bedroom before:
I love how warm and relaxing it looks now!
I like how the runner is an inexpensive option to having a larger rug in the room. Just enough to warm your feet when you get up in the morning 🙂
In Her Own Words
“I painted the walls, took down a ceiling fan and installed a ceiling medallion and a chandelier, got some accessories, hung curtains, and painted furniture. I chose this space because I need a relaxing and restful space to recharge every night. I was on a budget but I still spent more then I intended to. I did not really keep track, but probably around $250. My biggest challenge was installing the medallion on the ceiling, I still have to touch it and the ceiling up. I have hard plaster walls, so it was difficult to do. I think the easiest thing was painting, but I do that all the time anyway so I am used to it!!”
I love how she DIY’ed this to hold her makeup brushes!
And that stool is pretty awesome!
I’m so glad to see that Jodi’s got a space to call her own, a space that is DONE, while she continues to work on the rest of her house. Makes me want to redo my own bedroom 🙂
