The first makeover of 2008, at our home, began at the end of January. It started with an aching back and ended with an invitation from HGTV. The photo, above, shows the room before the makeover.
We were waking with aching backs and decided a new mattress might solve this problem. While discussing purchasing a new set or trading ours for the guest bed, we learned we had won a queen size mattress from a local furniture store.
The new mattress set was ordered and the king bed was moved to the guest room. That room is in a cottage style. When we placed the alder headboard, in that room, it just didn't seem to fit the style of the room. We contacted a car body shop and set up an appointment to have the headboard painted.
In the meantime, we moved the queen iron bed from the guest room to our room. When the new queen set arrived, we took the old one to the condo to be used in one of the guest rooms there. The photos, below, show the evolution of the Master Bedroom Makeover from the beginning through this last fall, when I used duvet covers, linen bed curtains and new lamps, to warm up the space for winter.

I posted the makeover at Rate My Space. I was very happy when it was well received. In February an e-mail arrived, from HGTV, inviting us to participate and use our room as inspiration for the new series, Rate My Space. In the end, due to our knack for being tongue tied on camera and J's Cancer journey, we declined the invitation. It was wonderful having this little redo recognized by HGTV.
