I hope your weekend has been wonderful! I’m so happy to finally be able to show you our master bedroom! As you can see, the size of our bedroom is modest, but I believe you should make the most of the space you DO have! A master bedroom should be a sanctuary where you can retreat from the craziness of life and that was my goal for this room. I wanted it to be cool and relaxing, but bright.
This room is full of DIY and repurposed items and was put together on a budget. For now, the floors are painted subfloor. We plan to install new wood floors soon, but I couldn’t stand the idea of updating the room with the old carpet! The rug isn’t my favorite, but it was inexpensive and will work for now. When we put in the new flooring, we’ll probably upgrade the rug as well.
The French silver nightstand is one of my favorite things in the room – if you want to see the before and details of the painting process, click HERE. The headboard is patterned after Pottery Barn’s Raleigh upholstered headboard. You can see how my husband and I made it HERE. The framed doily artwork above each nightstand are also a DIY project – click HERE to see how I made them. Finally, I brought out the sewing machine to make the tailored bedskirt with gray grosgrain trim.
I wanted this room to be a real mix of styles – rustic and glam, modern and vintage, town and country! The floor mirror with the white washed, chippy frame was another DIY. These oversized mirrors can be rather expensive, but I found the mirror part at a local thrift shop. It had a cheap, thin frame. We removed the mirror and made our own frame using old barn wood siding. The total price for this tall floor mirror was just $25!
We previously had two dressers in our room – which took up a lot of space. I knew that I wanted just one large dresser and was so excited when I found this beautiful French Provincial dresser at a local auction. The finish on this vintage piece was great, but I wanted the base to be white, so I painted it. I love how it turned out.
Here’s some eclectic for you – a wicker Peacock chair next to a French Provincial dresser.! Another bargain find that I just had to bring home at $15. I gave it a nice coat of white spray paint and added some accent pillows to dress it up.
I made a new slipcover for my cedar chest. The fabric is actually a shower curtain that I picked up in the clearance aisle at HomeGoods for $12. I liked the pattern and it’s a nice weight fabric – just enough to make the slip cover and the small pillow cover above.
Finally, the pintuck curtain panels are from the Pottery Barn Outlet, but are West Elm and were $19 each. I just checked the West Elm website and they are on final sale for $24.99 each.
