Ty Pennington Could Totally Help Me

We bought our house over seven years ago. It was a cute little house that we had great visions for. Before moving in we painted the two smaller bedrooms. The first we just added a red wall for the NASCAR theme and the other we had to cover thick, black cow spots. Well, we is a lose term. Mostly it was my husband...or totally my husband, but I WAS at home packing with a one year old and 4 month old.
The idea was that we'd slowly redecorate the house as we were able over time.  But we never got any further.  Actually things have progressively fallen apart and there are more projects than my brain can think about that NEED to be done.  But one that runs a thin line of need and want is our bedroom.  I'd love to have a gorgeously decorated room that I love to be in.  I love all the queen and twin platform beds available.  But considering my California Queen bed often feels to small, I think I definitely need a king.  I currently have a mattress that is almost 15 years old in an old waterbed frame that is almost 20 years old.  Because I am used to the under bed storage I really like the idea of platform beds with the drawers underneath.  This stops the area under my bed from becoming a disorganized waste land.  But at this point I would just love to get something comfortable and appropriate for our room.  If was actually part of a matching set, well that would just be a total bonus since my oak colored waterbed frame, circa 1992 doesn't really match the dressers that were once white, circa 1977.  It'd be nice to have a 'big girl' room someday.  
I'm just saying, Ty Pennington, if you're listening...I will totally volunteer my bedroom, or any room in my house for a make over.  Heck bring in the bulldozer and start over if you want, but I really would just be happy to have a new bed, with a mattress that my husband can actually sleep on so we could once again share a bedroom.  So Ty, while you and your crew are on your way to my place in 'the bus' you can shop by brand for my new cozy bed.  I'll be listening for you and your bull horn.


  1. I would love for him to decorate any room in my house. oh to have painted walls and matching furniture

  2. I just recently took on our bedroom- neglected for 6 years, with the crib moved in and then out for each of my 3 babies that have been born. I had a tight, and I mean tight budget. Paint, fabric and old things refreshed and repurposed made it feel like a relaxing space! An old mug holder became a necklace stand. Old picture frames, repainted and sporting vintage fabric inside instead of pictures became bedside art. Fabric from my Gramma's stash became our new quilt and burlap became the bed skirt (this only cost $6.89 on sale) Find things that you love and display them on floating shelves (for only $20) before you know it, you will be leaving your bedroom door open when you have guests in your home with hopes they WILL see it!


  3. Speaking of disorganized wastelands LOL I am scared to look under my bed. I am not even sure what all is under there but I do know there is a stack of 20 or so floor tiles and a dozen or so framed pictures that never made it back on the walls after we moved along with much, much more. Scary I tell ya! So after Ty gets done w/ your house, plz send him my way to do a room or two in mine :).

  4. Ugh, I could totally use Ty Pennington's help. I don't have a creative gene in my body and you can totally tell in my house.


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
