Now that our bedroom makeover has been totally revealed (more on that here), it’s time to discuss our closet! When I bought the house, there wasn’t a single closet in the entire place, so that first year was all about getting creative. There are so many amazing options out there for creating a closet out of nothing — and, believe me, I evaluated them ALL before proceeding. Let’s dig in and discuss some serious organization!
This post is a loooong time coming, you guys! From scraping away 19 layers of wallpaper to restoring the original shiplap to breaking my leg… this bedroom has been a labor of love and sharing it with you guys is long overdue. I cannot wait to show you every little bit of this space… so, without further ado, here’s our bedroom makeover reveal (and the source list)!
Happy summer, you guys! I’ve heard in other parts of the country it is actually summer… but in Seattle warm days are sort of new to us this week. They’ve finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier about absorbing some extra rays and working on my freckle collection. This week brought about a few updates with my broken leg situation, specifically that I can finally start bearing some weight on the leg and can begin physical therapy. I’ve heard that this will be the hardest part, but honestly I’m just glad to finally feel like I have some control over the matter. I still have a lot of healing ahead of me, but it feels good to know I’m on track.
Here’s some stuff that is inspiring me lately…
I have to say, #brokenleglife has sort of put a damper on all things renovation related! It’s kind of a bummer. But Sean has been working away trying to keep our projects going while I recover here at #mytinybungalow. I wanted to share a little bit of an update with you guys about all the changes that gave happened cuz even if my leg is broken, we still manage to have fun and get some stuff done around here!
Before all of the drama of last week and my broken leg (and surgery), I wanted to launch a new series — meet Small Space Entertaining! As the proud owner of #mytinybungalow, I find that I entertain way more than I ever did when I lived in a larger space. I think it’s probably because I own my home and love showing it off to people, even though it’s still in major fixer upper mode. But entertaining in a small space has it’s challenges. To kick off this new series, I decided to set my table for a springtime brunch for 4 and share my inspiration.

This won’t be news to long-time homeowners, but it’s a lesson I keep learning over and over and over again: house stuff is never actually finished. Case in point, our deck. Being a new homeowner, I thought I could simply put waterproof covers over our outdoor stuff during the winter months and everything would be ok… except it wasn’t, not at all. It turns out that someone had set up a home there in the winter months. Several someones, actually. I don’t even want to think about what they were, to be honest, but everything was destroyed. Lesson learned — the hard way. Thankfully, Article reached out with their new outdoor furniture line — wanna see our deck makeover??
The bedroom makeover has sort of stalled… don’t get me wrong, we’ve made some EPIC progress, but at the same time there are a few big impact pieces that are still missing from the room. One in particular is a nightstand. I scored these lovely vintage Lane pieces on Craigslist for a song, but as soon as the wallpaper went up, they suddenly didn’t feel right. There’s something about the scale and the tone of the wood grain that isn’t jiving with my vision. It’s actually been really hard for me to figure out why they aren’t quite right! And thus began my search for a white nightstand that is also small space friendly…
