I am pleased to be able to report that our master bedroom is completely done! Finally! I wish I had the energy and stamina that many of you possess when it comes to decorating, but I just don't!
But alas, here we are..............
Note that one chair is missing from above photo. That's because I am standing on it in the closet to get the picture!
Notice pup-pup making herself seen there! She's always in the room with us!
You may remember from way back when, when I started talking about this room makeover, I mentioned a couple restrictions that the hubby put on me. One, we have to re-use the bedroom suite. Two, I was only allowed to paint the mirror and the two nightstands. Below is the mirror, original to the bedroom suite, with a few coats of Eloquent Ivory by Behr and light distressing. The bedroom furniture was originally purchased from Big Lots about 8 years ago. It is a nice sturdy set and has held up well. It was just a little dark with all of it crammed into a smallish master bedroom. Lightening a few pieces with paint really helped.
lamps / shades - Hobby Lobby
grey rose hurricane candleholders - Urban Farmhouse
dream art - Big Lots
I gave the same paint treatment to both nightstands and kept the original hardware....
lamps - Home Goods
curtain panels - Lenda from IKEA, sheers - vintage
white ruffle bedding - Simply Shabby Chic from Target
I desperately needed to add a piece of furniture for extra linen storage and ultimately decided on the Hemnes armoire from IKEA. A vintage European basket rests atop....
These beauties arrived in the mail this past week.....an early birthday present from my sweet mother-in-law. They're perfect for the space and reflect my style just right. Thanks Carol!
The vintage looking fan was a Goodwill find! Gotta love the Goodwill returned goods area!!
I took this picture from the bathroom to show you the other artwork I did for the room.....
I had a whole stack of these chunky wood frames that I happened upon in a thrift store. They were brand new, still in their original wrap from IKEA. They started out in a pale grayish green color, so I lightly dry brushed them with white paint. Then, I cut a piece of scrapbook paper that I liked to fit the opening, glue-dotted the old tin type letter to the paper and fitted it into the opening.
Here is a closer look.....notice the peacocks on the paper?
Ruffles were a must in this makeover!!
Here's another look at the jewelry area....
Yay! Finally! It's done!
And I couldn't be happier with the end result!
Now, I'm beginning to plan a re-do of laundry room due to a purchase we made at the Springfield Antique Show a couple weekends ago. One project down, on to the next! The story of many of our lives!
Thanks for visiting!
