Monday Morning Quickie

Hey, friends! It's Monday and after the busy weekend we had, including my middle son's graduation, I now have a ton of housework to catch up on. So, as a general rule, I will cut corners wherever I can to expedite the catch-up process! 

One of my tricks is to throw anything and everything that I possibly can into the dishwasher. LOL I put in glass light fixture covers, toothbrushes, my glass birds from Scotland, etc. But oftentimes, the protective padding or non-skid rubber on the bottom of my items comes off in the process. That would include my well-used spoonrest.

My Pinterest Inspiration for Making Over My Master Bedroom

I didn't intend to do a full makeover. Really, I just meant to throw a new coat of paint on the walls...

First of all, your sanctuary should be inviting! You should want to spend time there, rest there, read there, snuggle with the spouse there, bounce on the bed with the kids there! Mine has long since lost most of its inviting qualities. Plus, it's small. Small-ish. And dove gray. Which sounded charming in theory, but is actually B-O-R-I-N-G in real life.
