 Guys,  I’m so happy to say that our master bedroom is finished! It has taken us a few tries (from lampshades to duvet covers to curtains) to get things right, but it finally feels ‘right’ to us. Fair warning: I’m totally going to bombard you with pictures!

Come on in…

Light and Bright Master Bedroom

Sherwin Williams Rainwashed Paint for Master Bedroom

The footstool got a makeover with some fun fabric that I had in the basement. I finally figured out how to update the wicker hanging lamp in the corner. I brushed on bright white paint (lightly) and then used an upholstery needle and thread to cover the old edging. It was time-consuming, but totally worth it.

I still really love the DIY sunburst mirror over the bed.

Nothing is going to make that t.v. be less of an eyesore, but I enjoy the gallery wall behind it.

The floral painting was a $1.50 find at a garage sale last summer.

Greyson drew (with Luke’s help) the top piece of art for Christmas for me. I’m glad I had space to incorporate it.

DIY Bamboo Blinds in Master Bedroom

DIY Bamboo Shades and Bamboo Planter Pot

I like how the diy bamboo blinds pair with the updated pot and tiled plant stand. I really think the fresh plants and the texture of the bamboo make that little area over by the window.

There are so many DIY projects in the room. I love how they turned out and I love the fact that, with some of them, you wouldn’t even know they were DIY. I love the fact that we were able to mix mid-price pieces (West Elm bed frame, dresser, etc) with DIY pieces ($30 dollar headboard, bamboo shades, no sew pillow, tiled table top, sunburst mirror, etc) to achieve something cohesive.

Now, if I could only replicate that feeling throughout our whole house.  I’m not going to think about that and instead, go lay on bed and read a book. Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!

    I love this! You did a fabulous job, it is so serene and beautiful. I have the same light in my daughters nursery and I adore it! Thanks for linking up to the Sunday Soiree.

      Thanks Marie! That light is such a bang for your buck. I’m always amazed at how much people love it (in person and online). We’ve been super happy with it. Thanks again!

    Oh, this looks like the most perfect retreat from the world! I love the calming color scheme (and that whimsical hanging light in the corner–swoon!). This makes me want to lighten up the color palette in our room :)

    How nice to have a finished master bedroom! I feel like I’ll never get to mine. Love you space. The color is so calming and again love those faux bamboo shades. Thanks for sharing at The Makers!

      Thanks Abby! The rug we had originally bought for the formal dining room, but we hated it in there. Funny how it was totally perfect in the master bedroom. Thanks again!

    I have a sample can of Rainwashed as I am currently trying to decide what color to paint my master bath. I get married in two months and my fiance and I are working to make my house of six years “our” house! I love the rug and wall color!

    I love how this turned out! The little pops of yellow are just enough to bring some life into the room but not too much it becomes overwhelming. Thanks so much for linking this up to Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop. This is going to be one of my features at our next party!

      Thanks Carrie! I had originally started with yellow in our living room and it go overwhelming fast! I tempered that this time around. Can’t wait to be featured!

    I absolutely ADORE your bedroom!! The color scheme is so calming and relaxing…definitely a space where I could plop down and read a good book! I’m in the process of redoing my bedroom as well and I feel completely inspired by your design. I actually just finished updating my current dressers not too long ago that kind of remind me of your nightstands (which I LOVE!).
    Anyway awesome job!

      Hi, Thanks! The rug is Rugs USA Satara Insignia Chevron Teal Rug and the bedding is a gray/white pinstripe from Ikea (but bought off of Amazon). Hope that helps!

    Quite a womderful job decorating the MB! Love the way everything goes together perfectly. It feels calm but not dark, tranquil but not drab. But I can only imagine how much work it was. Bet you wanted to fall into that lovely bed and sleep for days!

      Thanks Dory! We got it off of One Kings Lane. It’s by an artist named Caroline Wright and you can frequently find it for sale on One Kings Lane or Joss and Main.


  1. […] I’m excited to hang them. I think I’m going to layer some roman shades underneath them. I have that look in most of our rooms and I really love it. I have some extra ones that fit (magic, right?), but if I didn’t I would have definitely gone the DIY route like I had before in our master bedroom. […]
