Today I am sharing the final reveal of my master bedroom makeover. I am so excited, so let’s get started!
For those of you that are new to The Organized Wife, I am renovating my master bedroom during a six week challenge called The One Room Challenge. During this time, I am challenging myself to renovating my master bedroom while sharing the project progress each week.
WHERE THE ROOM STARTED
My master bedroom was dark and boring. It lacked any real design. In this photo, we had just arrived home from a trip. We still had luggage out and travel related messes everywhere.
Our bed covered the window, blocking nearly all of the natural light. Additionally, it was inconvenient to open the window.
The furniture was dark. Also, it was left over from another phase of our lives. The husband and I were ready to purchase grown-up furniture.
THE FINAL REVEAL
We replaced our dark, over sized dresser and night stands will smaller furniture in lighter finishes.
The new nightstands are a white-washed wood finish with gold knobs. The finish is just absolutely beautiful.
We moved the lamps in our dining room to our bedroom. I love them. They are my most favorite lamps of all time. They are clear, cut glass. They sparkle a little when the light is on!
We painted our once beige window in a bright white. The window now matches the crown molding, baseboards, doors, and door trim. We also hung these beautiful white and blue curtains.
Before this project began, we did not have any art work on the walls. We added a framed canvas print above our bed. We also had a photo from a vacation last summer blown up onto a canvas. It is the first thing you see when you walk through the door.
When we started, the husband asked if I would please not add too many items to his nightstand.
I respected his wishes. In addition to the much needed lamp, I added a fern and a marble tray. The tray is a perfect place for a glass of water or his cell phone in the evening.
I got a bit more creative with my nightstand.
I added a piece of original art work as well as a small, brightly colored print that I acquired many years ago. The space is happy and cheery.
The bed is a piece of furniture that we purchased a few years ago. It includes a gray velvet, tufted headboard. It is soft to the touch and easy to keep clean.
While shopping for this project, I found these beautiful navy blue corduroy throw pillows. They add a small amount of texture to the bed.
I love bright, white bedding. I stuck with white sheets and a white linen duvet. We picked up a thin, gauze blanket with this lovely blue stripe. This striped blanket is white with a nice pop of color.
Before making changes to our furniture configuration, we did not have room for an ottoman at the end of the bed.
We found this ottoman that includes slightly white washed wood with a gray linen tufted top.
I found this lovely white throw blanket at Home Goods. It is so soft and is great for cuddling. The puppies really love laying on it.
I had a tough time picking out furniture for our room. I did not want a dresser that perfectly matched our nightstands. Also, I need a dresser that wasn’t longer than 55 inches.
And then I found this beauty at Pottery Barn. I fell in love with the bamboo details on this dresser. And it wasn’t too wide!
The handles are gorgeous as well.
Before this project, I didn’t really care for our bedroom. I spent as little time in the room as possible. Now I love our bedroom. It is bright, cheery, and, most of all, a relaxing retreat.
The dogs seem to love the room as well.
