Master Bedroom Makeover Update

I still have a few things to do before I actually finish this room but I thought I would go ahead and show you where I am with a master bedroom makeover update. In a dream world I would be totally finished but I’m not. I will say that I am completely pleased with how far it has come.

My husband and kids really like it so that makes me feel accomplished. I would love to build something for the TV to go on but I plan to wait until warmer weather so I can work in the shed or outside.

I also plan to embellish the plain curtains (black out panels from Walmart) with a denim band down both sides and across the bottom. As soon as I feel like getting my sewing machine out I plan to tackle that project.

Then there is the thrift store dresser under the horse art. It needs a makeover.  For now I took my own quick tip Friday advice and used the wood finishing cloth across the top just to make it “work” for now in the room.

In case you missed it, we made the headboard.  I LOVE it! I also painted the night stands and I will share that in a separate post soon. The horse art and the lamps are from HomeGoods. OH and I decided the room needed a dark feature wall!! It made such a huge difference. The color is enduring bronze by Sherwin Williams. Also, I traded out the bench that was here with the wooden grain sack inspired bench I painted.

So here you go, our master bedroom makeover update…in pictures!

  1. Your room looks amazing. I love the soft color palette and that headboard. One day I’m going to get to my bedroom. Seems it always gets pushed back by other projects. This is so inspiring!

  2. Love your bedroom, I am currently making plans for ours so pinning this for isnpiration!!! Christine from Little Brags…oh question about the paint color….Is it kind of a beige-grey or grey grey??? Its hard to tell in pics

  3. Beautiful Sonya! There’s so much I love about this- the headboard, painted bench, the lamp, all of it! I’ve been gathering some ideas for my master bedroom so thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Wow, sounds like you are getting your DIY on!! Way to go! The wall color is the same as the kitchen cabinets, antique white. The feather fabric was bought at Tony’s fabric in Greenville, SC

  5. Oh, wow, what a great job, it looks wonderful. I love everything you did. You won’t be able to sleep looking at your pretty room. lol

  6. I love what you did with your bedroom. I have been looking for an inexpensive way to create some sort of headboard. I can’t wait to try it! If I could ask you what color are the lighter color walls? I have the same sort of set up in my room with 2 windows on either side of my bed so the accent wall color would be perfect. And also, what store did you find the accent pillow fabric with the feathers on it, it is really cute! Thanks for all of your beautiful ideas. I am almost through painting my kitchen cabinets as you have shown antique white with the glazing and they are looking amazing! Keep the creative ideas coming I really love your sense of style!

  7. You did a great job on this room. I really like the feature wall and think it pulls your eye to the bed and especially to your awesome headboard. Love it!

  8. Love it Sonya! What color are the night stands, they look awesome! And that headboard – love it!
