{Master Bedroom Redo} Step 1 – Prepping the Walls

It’s finally time!!!  I am so excited about redoing the master bedroom.  It’s always the last room to get done.  We are going for a spa feel…mama’s room of relaxation is more of what it will be.  So far, we’ve added the wooden shutters to the sliding glass doors, made over the night stands, and added an extra bed due to all the people who wind up sleeping with us at night.

So, here’s the starting off point:



This week, I started patching the walls and sanding them.

So that is the first day!  It’s also my least favorite part of redoing a room because of the crazy mess that all that dust makes.  And I’m so glad it’s over with!  Today’s dusty mess took about 90 minutes to clean…not too bad!
