The story of our master bedroom is a story about a room that just can’t get done.
It’s a room that just keeps getting pushed lower and lower on the to-do priority list.
Unfortunately, I’m not the type of person who does just a temporary decorating fix until the master plan comes together.
Oh no. The pretty bed is sold as it the yellow dresser, night stands, art, lamps…it’s all gone.
I’m an all or nothin’ type of gal.
I thought if I had a blank canvas to work with it would light a fire under me. Our bedroom now looks like a college dorm room with our box spring sitting on the carpet.
It doesn’t help that when I painted the three paneled walls months ago I thought I’d be funny and write “yo” on the 4th wall with my last bit of remaining paint. It’s the little lame-o tad of rebellion I have in me.
I don’t know.
It’s not a word I use in my everyday vocabulary.
Paint fumes got to me I guess. I was on my way to run to the paint store for more paint but then the reality of life with three little men happened and who the heck has time to finishing painting a room with three little men under foot?
As a result…”YO” is the first word we see in the morning and the last word we see at night (for the past 6+ months).
And the Mr.? There’s not much that bothers him but he’s so beyond sick of the “YO”.
Sometimes when he calls I’ll pick the phone up with a “YO” or greet him at the door with a kiss and a “YO”. Sometimes I’ll even double up and be like “Yo-Yo” just to see how hard of an eye roll I can elicit from him.
My new plan was to wallpaper this fourth wall with grass cloth. I have been back to the darn wallpaper store 4 times now. This last visit the lady had my order in the computer and my debit card was in hand. When I said, “WAIT”. Cold feet. AGAIN.
I went home wondering if I should go out completely out on a limb and do something totally different with a dash of masculinity. Completely panel the wall in wood. Not a pallet wall or wood flooring wall. Something more like:

Go for it? Big mistake? I wouldn’t even know where to go to get this?
“I’d like one large wood wall please.”
We did make one exciting addition yesterday:
It’s called the Vega 3 Chandelier from School House Electric. Please excuse the ugly bulbs. We’re waiting some cool Edison-esque bulbs via snail-mail.
So there it is. My bedroom conundrums.
Hopefully in three more years I’ll have a room reveal to share with you.
In the meantime, I’m busy trying to figure out how to be a parent and get dinner on the table before 9pm and find my keys.
