Finally, My Master Bedroom Reveal
I can’t believe I was able to Diy an entire bedroom.
You guys have been so patient while I took my sweet time with this bedroom. It’s been a fun yet exhausting experience but I’m a little embarrassed to say that it has taken me 9 months to finish this room. Had I went to the store and purchased every single item in this room, I could have been done in less than a month. That would have been financially impossible. Originally I was just going to build a bed. The next thing you know I knocked a hole in the wall, added a second closet and replaced all the doors. This renovation grew tremendously but I have no regrets because I did it all by myself and I saved a ton of money.
Lets take a trip down memory lane.
This is the Before-Before of the bedroom prior to closing on the house 3 years ago.
It was packed with furniture that made the room feel small generic.
When we moved in, we brought our lame single people furniture. The room look cheap and did not reflect our personalities at all. The room was large and looked bare.
9 months to the future, and it’s totally different.
I have a strong appreciation for each and every piece of furniture in this room because I created it with my own hands.
Lets not forget the Upholstered Settee. Even the window treatment were a Diy project.
A few things are likely not going to be permanent.
This art over my bedside table was created as a placeholder for something special that I have yet to find.
This frame-less mirror needs a frame. I like it in the corner but I will likely move it to the adjacent wall and build a hardwood frame for it.
This wall needs something to break up all that darkness. I hate blank and bare walls. Any suggestions?
Lets shift our attention to the elephant in the room. The pièce de résistance….
I’m head over heels and completely smitten with this chandelier.
It totally makes the room. My mother in law did not understand why the light fixture was such a big deal and why I could not just pick one up from Home Depot. She doesn’t read my blog so her disbelief doesn’t surprise me. She stopped by last week just as I’d finished installing it and was like “Wow, you weren’t looking for just any light fixture. That looks amazing.”
Lets have a closer look shall we?
Are you drooling yet? Because I sure am. Honestly I lay in bed and stare at it with a huge grin on my face.
It came from Etsy Seller Stimulight and it came fast and well packaged. I can’t wait to grab a few more fixtures from them.
I am so happy I trusted my gut and that my husband allowed me the creative freedom to choose what I really wanted. After our little talk, he said that things always turn out great and that he doesn’t understand why I even ask him in the first place.
I told him that I want things to reflect us and not just me.
I think our bedroom does just that. It marries our tastes well. When you look at it, you can tell that a woman lives here but that the woman respects her husbands tastes as well.
I’m glad to be done with this room for now as I’m anxious to start churning out more furniture.
