Updating Our Home

Lately, the hubs & I have been busy making a few simple updates around the house. I recently blogged about our backyard transformation, however our next two projects were definitely simpler, and while they don't add any value to our house, they definitely make me smile.

First, we updated our main bathroom by putting together an above toilet shelf unit, and purchasing a basket to hide things like our air freshener and extra toilet paper.

In the bathroom, we also ditched our nasty white in-shower selves that we bought at a yard sale, for a nicer set that matches the other shelves and is hopefully rust-resistant.

Our final, and my favorite, update was to the bedroom. We've been sleeping on a queen bed for the past year-and-a-half, which was a tight fit for the both of us. After relishing all of our out-of-town trips for the king bed we luxuriously got to enjoy, we finally broke down and bought our own.

The headboard is a Roma Tufted Wingback Headboard in Slate from everyone's favorite french store, Target. We purchased a Novaform Gel Memory Foam mattress and our king pillows (they have a great deal on sets of these) from our local Costco, and picked up the frame and boxspring from local stores. After searching for hours online, I ended up picking up our bedding from Home Goods (the actual duvet matches the gray and white patterned shams you see in the picture), and this weekend, I finally bought a simple white bedskirt from Kohls. So far, we are loving all the room we have, plus sleeping on a mattress that isn't 10-plus years old is helping us sleep better.
