Master Bedroom Progress

Our bedroom is finished...mostly. It has been for awhile BUT I'm still searching for the perfect comforter for our bed at the perfect price AND I need to get a new ceiling fan. (I feel like I'm trying to pull Excalibur out of the stone.) I haven't wanted to post the overhaul because I felt like it had to be "perfect" before I did. Erm, but I'm not perfect & neither is my house so let's get on with it....

Here's the deal: This room used to be the boys room/playroom. This room also has an extra few feet & double closets. Momma got stingy & took it over.

This "before" picture was an afterthought as the paint process began.

This is the overview of the after (minus a new light fixture & comforter)

We painted obviously. I wanted a charcoal color to accent around the closets & a light gray for the room. This room is a little different than the rest of the house because I have a mix of colors & furniture - (White, black, blue, grey, & wood) - but I like it.

I created a "sitting area" where the closet is. 

 I secretly store all my books in the suitcases. A: It hides them because there are too many and B: it keeps Zeke from being able to move the suitcases.

Notice my penchant for elephants:

Thrift store glasses & tealights and Modcloth Jungle Hook.

Here's a rundown of the different projects that went into the room:
  1. Headboard Frame
  2. Footstool 
  3. Dresser
  4. Side Table
  5. Lamp
  6. His & Hers Closet Sign
  7. Chair
  8. Jewelry Holder Shelf
There was other assorted decorating like painting the nightstand to match the dresser, the leaning mirror & suitcases, putting pictures of my actual family in the empty frames, adding a fresh plant, & some tweaking I've done even since I have taken these photos.

There is still work to be done here & there. I need some wall art & I would like some curtains/window scarfs to soften up the window edges. Yes, a new ceiling fan & comforter, too.

So, what do you think about the mix of furniture colors? Too much? Just right? Too many elephants? ;)


  1. Oh wow what an amazing transformation!!!! Your room looks so much more cozier :-)

  2. Fantastic. I love the sitting corner and that charcoal accent. New follower here!

  3. I love the sitting area. That charcoal wall is wonderful! Very daring!

    1. Thanks! I wanted something different since the giant closet was going to stick out anyways ;)


Show the love.
