After a bit of a teaser yesterday, I've decided not to make you wait any longer. My Master Bedroom is finally finished (Well, kinda. There's still a bit of a mess in the closet area) I'm going to share with you what I did... So, here you go! Here's the before, just in case you forgot...
Cute, right? Well, I decided that it wasn't selfish or rude to have the Master bedroom in my own house after my room mate moved out, so instead of keeping as a guest room, I moved my stuff in. In a day. Yes, I did all this in a day. Keep in mind, my guest room looks the same as this, it's just in a smaller room now. ;)First off, I painted. It's a light gray with a bit more of a blue base, so it looks blue in these pictures. I guarantee you, it's not just blue. ;) This is the widest view I could get of the whole space... damn you walls, for getting in my way! Anyways.... Let me explain what I did here.
I decided to reuse my old closet doors (which I used in this room originally as the guest bedroom) on either side of my bed to create symmetry. I absolutely love having symmetry within a room, so this was definitely key. I also reused some old doors within my headboard to create a great, modern look. With my bedding, I like to have something that looks comfy and lived in, so I opted for my Pin-Tucked Duvet, a simple gray quilt, and big, poofy pillows!
To the left of my bed, you'll see my dresser...
I absolutely love my antique spoon-carved dresser that I picked up for cheap at an Antique Auction! To update it, I took the original handles off and then replaced them with cute pulls I picked up at Hobby Lobby on sale for 50% off! Score! On top of my dresser, I keep a collection of vintage bottles and books, my giant clam shell (don't worry, it's plastic. ;)), and a plant that I started from my grandma's.
On the left side of my bed, I have a cute little metal and glass nightstand. I picked it up at a thrift store for $3 bucks!
Next to it, I put my vintage suitcase (another thrift store find!) for extra storage. I hung ornaments above it to create more symmetry in the room, with more hanging on the other side of the bed.
I picked up this chair years ago and reupholstered it in this great damask material... Love it still! I added a Brom poster on the wall and a small magazine rack (that I picked up at Salvation Army for $.50) to hold my reading material...
On top, I have a small desk lamp with another giant clam shell as a catch-all. The drift wood I picked up as a souvenir from my trip to Caples Lake, California.
As you look further to your right, you'll see my bathroom and the door to enter my room... In between, I put a cute vintage fold up chair, found at a local thrift store for $2, my stereo gifted to me by one of my BFFs, a storage box picked up at the Surplus Sale for $1, my vintage inspired Colt Advertisement bought at the Antique Auction, and a Egyptian papyrus painting gifted to me by a friend who went there on a trip.
And opposite of my bed? My closet. Absolute dream closet! But, that's for another reveal... The total for this room redo was about $5 plus tax. That means all I bought was the paint! And it was on the mess up rack at Home Depot. Everything in this room was something I already had or things that were gifted to me. Talk about amazing!
So, tell me what you think! Should I have left it as a guest bedroom? Was it ok to move my stuff in? Did I do this room justice?
Now, after seeing that butt load of pictures, please, take two minutes and slip over and enter my GIVEAWAY!
