Master Bedroom Reveal

Master Bedroom Reveal

I have been pretty quiet on the blog lately other than some gardening posts because Jason and I have been putting the finishing touches on a room we have been working on for a long time. Our master bedroom is FINALLY done. Woo Hoo!  Last June I wrote my first post about starting it…that’s right almost one whole year ago!!!  In the last few weeks since Jason finished the floors it has become such a retreat for us.  I can’t even believe it’s the same room.  Just to recap…here is a picture of what it looked like soon after we moved in.  Yikes!

Longing for the country - house tour -

We took down the built in and added two closets to either side of the fireplace and transformed our old master closet into Tucker’s room.

We pulled down the wallpaper border, painted the sponge painted walls and trim and pulled up the very dirty off white carpet.

Jason installed and refinished our new wide pine floors (still working on him to add a post about installing them) added newly painted white baseboard.

Can we just have a moment with my new floors…they are AMAZING!  And less than $1.50 a square foot…that’s cheaper than cheap wall to wall carpet installed…like you can even compare the two!

While he was finishing the floors I got to the fun part, decorating the room.  A few failed craigslist trips for a sofa and chairs, two outlet trips, Ebay and a “authentic” Pottery Barn rug bought on Ebay that came by way of India (no kidding:)???  Hmm…..  Anyway, here is our bedroom!!!  Totally dancing the MC Hammer right now;).

The white bedding and red shams are from Pottery Barn (by way of the PB outlet and Ebay).  I love the pop of red on the pillows!  We have never had “grown-up” (Euro)  pillows before and they are fabulous!!!  The tan quilt and fuzzy throw are Restoration Hardware bought on sale after Christmas.  I reupholstered our headboard with a drop cloth from Lowes.  To read about that, click here.

We moved the bed against the side wall to help open up the area in front of the fireplace more.  It made the room feel so much cozier!  Perfect for family board games (Ticket to Ride anyone?) in front of the fire!

The black mirror use to be on top of my wide dresser but it fits perfectly on top of the mantel now.  I love the pop of black to go with our fireplace screen and door knobs:).

I really wanted to put make a fire for the master bedroom reveal but Jason told me I was crazy because it’s almost summer.  So you will just have to imagine one:).   I brought in some white azalea flowers for the fireplace mantel and my nightstand.  Aren’t they beautiful?

My favorite spot in our master bedroom is in the white Ikea chair in front the fireplace.  I have been stalking Craigslist for weeks for a matching chair to save some money but so far nothing:(.

The second we put the kids to bed we are retreat to our bedroom rather than sit downstairs and stare at all the daily messes.  It has been wonderful!  I plop right in my favorite chair and Jason hops up on the bed.

I forgot to mention that Jason also replaced our green ivy ceiling fan or a basic white one.  We are so thankful for our new master bedroom.. It is the perfect place to relax:).
