Master Bedroom

 

I feel bad that I haven’t posted for a long time, but I also haven’t had a whole lot to post about either! But here are some updated pics of the past few weeks. Our master bedroom has basically been done for quite awhile and even though there are still things I want to add/change, here is what it looks like right now. First of all, here is a terrible picture of what it looked like when we bought it. Yucka.

And here it is now!DSC01125

This is at the top of the stairs looking down the hallway into the bedroom. Lots of pictures ahead…DSC01117DSC01124DSC01132

It’s hard to tell, but I love the texture on the headboard. It’s thick upholstery fabric and it has raised circles.

The dang drawer on my dresser doesn’t stay closed! Sometimes it closes and sometimes it doesn’t but this time it was uncooperative for my pictures! I would still like to get another dresser and paint it yellow but that is something I may do later. I also used chalkboard spray paint and an old frame to make the cute chalkboard sign on the left.

I had this wooden tray from our wedding and I used painter’s tape and spray paint to make a cute design and I use it to hold my jewelry and perfume.

I love love the stenciled wall! You may notice a tiny part by the left nightstand that looks weird and I still need to fix that…ugh.

I did a lot of projects in this room. Here is everything I did;

-painted the walls (Behr Porpoise and Behr Creek Bend for the accent wall)
-stenciled one wall using a homemade stencil and pearlescent craft paint
-recovered lampshades with muslin and ribbon
-made upholstered headboard with nailhead trim
-repainted nightstands and added new hardware
-added ribbon to bedskirt
-spray painted frames
-made the curtains with hemming tape
-made a framed chalkboard
-spray painted tray
-traced, cut out (with Dan’s help), and painted the letter H above the TV
-painted and reupholstered the chair

I hope you like it! We love it and I still have lots of big plans and I’ll post pictures of our master bath soon!

Adorable! I think that is your knack in life.

Nicole said...

It looks wonderful, Haley!!! Don't you just love some of the interesting colors that other people paint their walls?!

Amy said...

Looks AWESOME! This is me super impressed.

I didn't handmake my stencil, but I have basically the exact same pattern! (I haven't done it yet though...) Just wondering if you have any advice on how to apply it to the wall etc. I was just going to use a clear (polyurethane?) paint, but you have me rethinking by seeing yours...maybe I could stencil in the same color as our trim (so it would look similar to yours, but all our walls are grey instead of just the one). If you have any advise, I'd love to hear it! I really want to do it, I just don't know how long it'll take me!

Jena @ Involving Color said...

Your bedroom looks amazing! I'd love to add it to the inspiration galleries on my site and include you in a feature post. Let me know if you're interested!

Caley said...

Beautiful!! I'm a sucker for grey and yellow. How long did it take you to stencil that wall?

The DIY Show Off said...

Wow, Hailey! It's gorgeous! I love the color combination and the accent wall is beautiful! Great job! Thank you so much for sharing your transformation in the DIY Project Parade! I'm including a link in today's highlights! ;)

Have a wonderful week!

Haley Hill said...

Thanks so much everyone! It's hard to say how long it took me because I worked on it in the evenings after work but it probably took around 10-15 hours total. But it was worth it!

Kristi @ Addicted 2 Decorating said...

Simply stunning. You've done such an amazing job on your bedroom.

Tanya @ Dans le Townhouse said...

Love it! Grey colour combo. So classic.

Hi there...Absolutely love your new bedroom. My favourite is the wall behind your bed. Thought it was wallpaper, but you made the stencil yourself??? Kudos! Wondering if you posted a how to tutorial? If not hoped you would share some tips, would love to know how you did this.

jesslope said...

aww. your bedroom is awesome. love the colors.

Kristin@FavoritePaintColors said...

Haley~
Your gorgeous is absolutely stunning and have done an amazing job. I stumbled upon your post and was wondering if I could feature this room, along with your paint colors, on my site. Let me know, it's a beautiful room. Thanks!

Remodelaholic said...

You guys this is beautiful! I would love to have you come do a special guest post about this on Remodelaholic. If you are interested, please let me know and I will get you the details!

Kathy C. said...

Wow... Fantastic makeover!

Decor & Harmony @ 4290 said...

I love the stencil! The grey and yellow is cheery and soothing all at the same time :)

Erin @ How to Nest for Less said...

LOVE this!!! I'm featuring you on my website this week :) Keep up the good work and can't wait to see more from you!

Stephanie said...

Your bedroom is beautiful, it really looks professionally done. What a great transformation! I saw it on Just a Girl's blog and was reading through what you did, and your headboard description and look caught my eye. I swear your headboard and fabric looks identical to the one I did for my daughter's master bedroom! I used dwell studio's white fabric. And I will say for the record I will never ever do upholstery tacks again.
But check it out, here

I would love to hear if our headboards are twins. (I have since added a starburst mirror above the bed, but don't take many pictures of the headboard because it makes me cringe every time I see it, way too much time and headache involved lol)

OPEN DRAWER: Superfast solution-blue tack

Fast solution- slightly raise front of dresser (with matchbooks or folded cardboard) dresser/dresser drawer may not be balanced, so it keeps opening)

Slow solution - Get a $1 magnet latch at box store.

Haley Hill said...

Thanks for the comment about the drawer, but the problem is not that it's falling open, but that the inside sliders are blocking it from closing sometimes for some reason. So it's actually stuck open, not falling open. The drawers are very sturdy and on wooden runners so I'm sure it's related to that, I just haven't done enough digging yet! Thanks though!

Christy said...

I love the quatrefoil wall! Would you share your stencil?

Claire said...

Love this room-the lamps and the great stencil are fabulous!!

Kim from Maiden D'Shade said...

Your bedroom is fabulous! And for the record, I see zero weirdness by the left night stand. :)

RMC said...

Gorgeous!!!

Andrea S. said...

Unbelievable transformation! Thanks for sharing. I love the gray, yellow & white. So elegant. The stenciling is beautiful!

Dorangela said...

I would love to stencil a wall like that design. Can you give me some guidance on the stencil and how to execute the plan! Thx

Aubree said...

AMAZING! Love the colors!

Rebecca @ My Girlish Whims said...

I love this so much...added to my pinterest.

Jana said...

Wow! This is beautiful! Where did the bed spread come from if I may ask?

Laura said...

Holy Haley!!! I love that you were featured on TT&J! Woohooo! My room is the same color with the same pillows...I think I might just have to copy your cute stencil design! You are amazing! LOVE THIS!

Lil Mama Stuart said...

so fresh and modern, great job!

Becky said...

Haley, Was your stencil an individual one that you traced on or how did you get it so big? The ones I've seen have been smaller. Can you please put a picture of your stencil on here? please?

Haley said...

Seconding everyone's request to see how you made your stencil. Love it!

Kate said...

You did such a fabulous job on your room! And I love that lots of the things were DIY!

Allison said...

I love the flower pillows! Did you make those or buy them?

potusmama said...

Great job!!! I love the headboard and am on the hunt as I am about to tackle my own. Did you use a tutorial for this? If so, do you mind sharing? Thanks!!

Mrs.D said...

Gorgeous room...your bedroom is so much like ours-- in the sense of the large accent wall that goes up high on one side. Funny enough-- we made a headboard out of the same white upholstery fabric with raised circles that you did! Great minds think alike!! Nice work!!! You can visit my blog and see my headboard if you want :)

Just Beautiful!

Demarcus Family said...

BEAUTIFUL! I also want to know about the throw pillows. They are exactly what I have been looking for!

Janel said...

I absolutely love these colors and am considering redoing my own room with the same gray and yellow scheme. I'm currently searching for a bedspread that I like and love the one here! Can you tell me where you bought it?
Thanks!
Janel

Heather said...

I am doing my living room and would love to know how you made this stencil-can you please post?

Haley Hill said...

Email me at haleybethhill@gmail.com and I will send you guys the stencil that I used. I originally got it from the Jones Design Co. blog then I modified it to be symmetrical and then traced it onto a posterboard to make a large stencil. The bedspread is from Bed, Bath and Beyond and the flower pillows are from Target. For the headboard, I bought the fabric from Joann's and followed the tutorial here to build it: http://www.hgtv.com/bedrooms/upholstered-headboard-with-nail-head-trim/index.html. I hope that helps!

Delilah said...

this is just my style! I want to do my living room gray and yellow, love the combination, you are talented. I love how you painted the tray and the stenceling on the wall is so unique. I love it!

Sherrie said...

SO CUTE!! What are the approximate dimensions of the stencil you made?? I really like that scale. :)

The Donohoe's said...

I have been searching high and low for a comforter that color... can you tell me the brand of the comforter or where you got it?

Anonymous said...

This is so beautiful. It has inspired me to do our bedroom! I think I will stencil a wall as well. Love it.

CandiceDee said...

Hi Hayley!

I love your walls and was wondering if you could send me or just explain how you made the stencil for you wall??? please! =) i have tried to just do it by eye and it keeps coming out lopsided or just weird looking! LOL!

Michael said...

It looks great! You did an outstanding job. Now tell me where you got the headboard.

Crane Family said...

Can I ask where you purchased the wallpaper? We are creating a nursery for our soon to come baby girl, with Lavender, white & gray. The paper you show would be perfect!!!

Haley Hill said...

Thanks for all the nice comments once again everyone. I previously posted my email if you are interested in the stencil.
Crane Family-it is not wallpaper, it is a stencil that I made. Email me at haleybethhill(at)gmail(dot)com if you would like a copy of it.
Michael-I made the headboard and got the fabric from Joann's.
Donohoe's: The comforter is from Bed Bath and Beyond.
Sherrie: Each individual quatrefoil is approximately 14ish inches tall and about 12ish inches wide. That is a rough guess.

hayleymouse said...

I am visiting from the Thrifty Decor Chick party and LOVE your room, especially the wall! Very impressed that you made the stencil. Your room has similar colors and decor to my master bedroom-- and my name is Hayley Hill as well! Weird. I'll definitely be back to look at your blog more!
