I am working with American Express to redo my bedroom. Last week they provided me with 150,000 Membership Rewards points.
The last few days have gone a little something like this…
- Saturday: Clear the bedroom (thereby making the library a disaster), go to my uncle’s house to celebrate his birthday, come home and go to bed (mattress on the floor).
- Sunday: One coat of paint on the walls and ceiling, go to my dad’s house for a barbecue, come home and go to bed (mattress on the floor).
- Monday: Second coat of paint on the walls and ceiling, go to my sister-in-law’s house for a barbecue, come home and go to bed (mattress still on the floor).
- Tuesday night: Swap out the rug, put the mattress back in the bed frame (YAY!), bring in the nightstands, and start setting up the room again… all in an hour while my mother-in-law watched Eleanor.
The bedroom looks really good so far though! It’s coming together just as I hoped it would, which is such a relief. I picked up some cute accessories and a new rug with the remainder of my points from last week. I was a little nervous about the rug… I brought my paint chips with me to the store, but sometimes when you see an expanse of wall color with the rug it can look a little off. Thankfully it all worked out. Really well in fact.
I’ll be ready to share photos next week! But now, something fun for you…
One lucky person will win a Crate & Barrel gift card worth $100 (courtesy of the American Express Membership Rewards program). Simply leave a comment on this post to enter, and I’ll select a winner at random on Monday, June 7. The giveaway is open to all. Good luck!
