Are you ready for my mom cave reveal? You are not going to believe this after. Does that even look like it could be a room in my house?!
I decided to take over and transform our rarely-used living room into my own little space. It is away from the TV, the kitchen, the toys, but is still only a few steps away from where everyone hangs out.
But it was dark, beige, and blah! Now was the perfect time to FINALLY paint the trim and brighten the room:
and at the last minute I decided to get gutsy with the wall color:
This was my mom cave after all!
The room is a light turquoisey blue (Valspar Stillness) and instantly the room felt happy and relaxing – just how a mom cave should feel! But this room had a long way to go. We moved the sofa in…
To finish the room, we made and hung conduit pipe curtain rods and added some $10 a pair white IKEA curtains. $15 a window, baby. Ain’t nobody got time for expensive window treatments!
Next came the fun part. I went for a shopping spree at my local La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery with some friends. Paint chips in hand, and pops of BRIGHT color in mind. I wanted fun accessories to make this a true mom cave!
Way, way, way more than just recliners!
We loaded up, headed out, and started staging and falling in love with the room.
And the big surprise?
My ridiculously awesome mom cave had its own photo shoot and is going to be famous! I’ll update you with more on that when I’m allowed to ;)
But for now, here are some of my favorite accessories from the room:
Oh and while fisheye mirrors make your room look great, but they don’t do the same for your face…
and secondly: double rugs, double the awesome.
Accessories, schmaccessories. I know you just want to see that before and after again! ;)
My new mom cave is now bursting with color and will be the perfect spot to work, relax, and hang out.
Oh and don’t worry. No one has been stabbed with the horns, our pillows are everywhere, and the fish are now safe on the counter dead. (They lasted 4 days)
Update June 14: See what the room looks like now in our house tour here!
