Week 6 is here and the little man cave bedroom is all done!
A true labor of love all worth seeing my son smile from ear to ear.
Thank you Linda from Calling It Home for an awesome idea like the One Room Challenge. It pushed me to finally complete my son's bedroom from family storage space with baby furniture to a big boys room supportive of imaginative play.
The man cave idea just sprung into my head and I went straight to action. I had some design fails like a DYI antler light fixture gone wrong and a cow hide rug that just didn't make the cut.
All in all it was a hit. I love how it turned out. He loves it! It may just be one of the coolest bedrooms in the house.
I was able to get some really cool finds
Once upon a time not too long ago, I had absolutely no furniture in my bedroom.
The thing is no one knew.
Not because I hid my room from them, but because I decorated it so well; that they could not tell.
I wish I had some pictures of what it looked like, but at that time I didn't know that I was going to change my career to follow my life’s passion.
The truth is all I had was a mattress set on a frame.
So with like barely no budget, not much money at all and lots of creativity; I created a sanctuary master bedroom.
Sugar and spice and everything nice...Not! This celebrity match up is straight from the garden state representing New Jersey and housewives across the nation.

A bedroom is a place for rest and relaxation?
Sweet Dreams VS Beautiful NiGhTmArE
Style is all is about preference. There are many different ways to style a bedroom. Here I will put them in two categories: Sweet Dreams- bright, airy bedroom VS Beautiful NiGhTmArE- dark, Emo style bedroom. I chose only beautiful bedrooms that I liked.
For today's celebrity match up; I chose.... the infamous CHRIS BROWN. I will match his fashion style and image to an interior decorating style and sample rooms.
Do you have items in your home that are on reserve for no apparent reason?
You tell yourself, one day I will use it, when I have guests I will use it, use that china only on Thanksgiving Day or not even, saving that body wash for Lord knows what, don't want to use that lotion or perfume often because it costs so much or it was a gift and you wouldn't spend that much money on that, and the list goes on. You get my point. I'm sure you have a host of stuff in your home that you are holding hostage. Got it saved up or displayed up like a museum item.
I am here to say YOLO (you only live once for those who don't know)!! Use it people.
