HomeMade: Bedroom #3

I feel as a single person with a dog I shouldn't be able to even name a post bedroom #3....who has 3+ bedrooms and only a dog to share them with. Especially when said dog likes to curl up on the foot of the bed in bedroom #1 with her human.? whelp, I guess that would be me.

So because I don't need this third bedroom to actually house a bed, I turned it into an office....which I never use. My thought process was to have a place to sort all the bills and junk that big kids are now responsible for. I thought it would help me keep my counter clean. For the record, my counter is not clean. ever. ok, maybe for a couple hours a month.

All the bedrooms pretty much got the same treatment, fresh paint, new blinds, new carpet and new closet doors and a touch of my style with furniture and wall hangings.

When I bought my house I had no idea how expensive some of the small things would be. Case in point, blinds....buying blinds could break Donald Trump! Unless you order from here like I did! They custom cut my blinds and I was able to install blinds in my entire house for around $200 bucks! Because I have funky sized windows in my house, my initial search had me thinking that I wouldn't be able to do 1 room for $200 bucks so that is a steal! They of course aren't real wood or the best money can buy, but they do the job, they have held up well and they look great! In my unbiased opinion of course.


  1. It looks great! You're all over this home improvement thing!!

  2. Looks great! I might even look into the blinds outfit, so thanks for the shout out!

  3. Oh I love it! The color is great! We have just the 2 of us (for a couple more days/weeks now!) but our house has 4 bedrooms. We use two as guest bedrooms and one as the office. Nothing wrong with having enough space!
