Master Bedroom Reveal

Alright y’all, the time has finally come for me to reveal our master bedroom updates!  If you’re new here, you can read up here, here, here and here to see more about the process I went through with Courtney to make these updates.  There are still some things that I’d like to tweak, and the wall on the other side of the room isn’t finished yet, but I feel like it’s come such a long way and I am LOVING.IT.  I have to send out a gigantic THANK YOU to Courtney, because without her, we would still be living in the “before”!  I feel so so blessed to have had our room chosen for her Just Four Things series, and I have to give her credit for the huge transformation!  So, Courtney, thank you, thank you, thank you!

(And also a quick thank-you to the Mr. for being patient and allowing me to re-do our room when he was perfectly happy with it the way it was.  Happy (early) birthday to me, right honey? Smile)

So, before we see the “after” here is a quick reminder of where we were “before.”


And after working with Courtney on “Just Four Things,” here is the “after”!  (Sorry, it’s tough to get a good picture of the drapes because of all the sunlight that comes through those windows.)

Matt’s side of the nightstand with his “DAD” picture that I made him for Father’s Day.  (Which has been pinned like 5,000 times on Pinterest!  Who would have thought – it was just randomly inserted into one of Hadley’s monthly updates!)


The original plan was to stencil on the larger canvas, but when I put a sample on a piece of paper up there, it seemed to take away from the picture a little.  Do you think it looks too plain without anything on the back canvas?


And because who doesn’t love a good “before & after” comparison shot – here you go!

I love it!!! I really want to redo our master bedroom, though on our budget, I may have to just settle for new bedding for my birthday... but I will probably be coming back to this post for inspiration :) Or maybe I will just pin some of it and all these pins will make you famous!

Andrea said...

Amy said...

i think the pictures look great without anything on the background...very simple and classic.
i am seriously in love with your room-in a non weird way :)

Danielle said...

It looks fantastic! It's so hard to believe you only changed 4 things! It looks like a whole new room. Those 4 things really make a difference. Love the lamps! I'm looking for some just like that but I wasn't so lucky at my HomeGoods ): Great work!

Kelly said...

I ended up here in a really round about way ... via a random post on my FB that lead to Pinterest, that lead to another blog, that, in turn, lead to your blog! Very random, but I'm so happy I found your blog. I've been wanting to re-do my bedroom for a while now, and I've been totally inspired by this post. It looks wonderful!

Your wall color is almost identical to our wall color! It's a great bedroom color!!

I love the pictures above the bed just the way they are, they are dimensional, therefore the white background is serving a wonderful and simple purpose!

Bed Frames said...

Love the bed frames and the blue-and-white theme combination. Your post can inspire those who want to have a classy motif in their bedrooms. Many thanks for posting this article. Keep it up!
