My parents worked their butts off during the days leading up to the holiday weekend. My mom was so excited about me coming home and having my own little space to live in for a few days. I was excited too! You see, when I go back to my hometown for visits, I always view it as a little vacation from life. Having my own little area, or sanctuary, as I like to call it, is just the icing on the cake for a bit of time away from the real world.
Mama and Daddy did such an exceptional job at turning a tiny little spare bedroom into a cozy home away from home. They did all of the work themselves, including a brand new ceiling and brand new flooring. I loved it so much that I decided to take some pictures to share here on the blog. I just want everyone to see how open and airy and relaxing the room turned out. My mom is actually a blogger as well...you can find her here if you are interested. She is basically a professional thrifter and DIYer.
Hope you enjoy the little picture tour. All of my stuff is kind of lying around, but I feel like that just makes the room look even more homey. You will also see Farrah, one of our cats lounging on the bed in a couple of the photos. I'm pretty sure she thinks the new room is actually hers, because she spent a great deal of time in there with me!
