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!
