A before and after simple bedroom makeover as a gift to our fam! - sugar and cloth - home decor - best DIY blog - houston - ashley rose

One Room Challenge Week 1: Renovating our Master Bedroom Suite!

As if I hadn’t gone crazy enough with all of the studio renovation chaos (I still love you though new meeting room), our house reno is now in full swing too! If nothing else, my insanity should make for excellent free entertainment via IG stories and possibly a major news channel if things get really good.

To make things doubly exciting, we’re participating in this Fall’s One Room Challenge and I’m so pumped! It’s going to be pretty epic renovating our master bedroom and bathroom suite, and not just because of how currently hideous it is, but because we’re in realllly good interior design company.

If you haven’t heard of Calling It Home’s ORC before, it’s a six-week series featuring 20 different design blogs (see them all below!) as they start from the ground up on redesigning a space. Every Wednesday for six weeks you can tune in to see the progress in all of our spaces! And again, because I’m clearly highly pregnant and insane, we’ll be making over our master suite!… in six weeks. Why? Because babies don’t wait to be delivered.

So here are the before photos and feel free to judge. I had to use a featured photo from this bedroom makeover post just to not accidentally burn down the internet with our current before situation plastered everywhere…

One Room Challenge Week 1: Renovating our Master Bedroom and Bathroom Suite!

Please excuse the horrible iphone photos, but I figured what the heck, it’s not going to look pretty either way. I tried to break down the main pain points on each photo, and next week I’ll be giving you the rundown on our full room design plans and inspiration!

My number one pet peeve about this space is the old carpet. It was there before we moved in and does NOT get along well with pets. Very happy to see that go ASAP!

It’s also just full of odds and ends instead of intentional furniture pieces. Basically, it’s an IKEA graveyard right now.

You can also see how section off the bathroom is even though it’s literally in plain sight, so the idea is to add more natural light to that space with double doors.

In summary: everything’s gotta go! I know I mentioned this when we first bought our house, but it was definitely designed with the intention of being a rental which means everything is as cheap as it gets. We’re super excited about upgraded bathroom fixtures like you wouldn’t believe!
