Master Bedroom Makeover

Despite it being summer, I have been working on a master bedroom makeover for the last month. If you have been following along, recently I shared this post  on how I made a vintage fabric pillow as a jumping off point for our makeover. Then I revealed our cozy reading corner for under $100 that I created with thrifted finds. And now I am so excited to share the whole makeover with you!

Let’s visit Chapter 1 for a minute shall we? The proverbial ‘BEFORE’ shot.
This is how the master bedroom looked for 9 years!
9 years people! It was absolutely time for a change!
I was really craving a lighter, fresher look.
So in a weekend of work, I took this large room from dreary brown to soft gray.
We were so ready for a softer and lighter color.
My next project was painting the night stands and lamps.
I first painted the black lamps a shade of blue, but I wasn’t sure it was what I was looking for, so then…
I decided that the blue lamps were a bit too ‘cottagey’ for me, so I re-painted them in fresh white with a gold base.
I love how fresh the white looks after living with darker colors for so long.


And I made a gallery wall of family photos  from over the years to fill a large wall by the window.
All of these are Christmas card photos of the kids from 2005 to 2012.
I love seeing them all together!
I gave the silver mirror a quick refresh with a coat of gold metallic paint.
And some fresh pillows with new white bedding keep it looking light & airy.
And here’s our new cozy reading corner.
We love having these chairs in our bedroom.
They are such a nice addition to a previously empty space.
We are so happy with our bedroom makeover. I just love walking into our bedroom and admiring  the fresh new colors and our cozy sitting area.
Thank you so much for stopping by and peeking in on our makeover!

    This looks wonderful, open, fresh and so crisp. It must be so nice to crawl into bed in such a bright and crisp space? It must be like getting into bed with fresh sheets that have been hanging outside all day. Congrats on a job very well done!

    Your bedroom is amazing! White bedding with color on top is my favorite look. Your chairs and the whole reading corner are perfect! I'm also working on my master bedroom…and by that I mean right now I'm gathering ideas. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Beautiful, peaceful room – love all of your color accents. The wall color is just perfect. Could you please let me know the color? I am going to attempt lightening up my own bedroom and the gray looks wonderful.
