Master Bedroom Reveal

We're so happy to finally be finished with our Master Bedroom transformation! While we still need to add crown moulding, we are content for now. We've transformed our bedroom into a glamorous retreat and I can finally feel relaxed when I go to sleep every night.

When we purchased our home, the bedroom looked like this . . .  I'll wait while to pick your jaw off the floor.

Not. Pretty.

When I wrote this post a while back about the room, I laughed at all of the hilarious emails and comments that you folks left. Obviously, the room was immediately painted when we moved in, but it took us quite a while to decide on the permanent decor for the room. You didn't expect us to leave it looking like this, did you?

Now, the room is a serene gray. Framed sand dollars and sea stars add a beachy vibe to the room. See more on that project here.

Sterling Silver candle holders, (a wedding gift) add to the mood lighting. The white, porcelain dish is used for jewelry or odds and ends at the end of the day. I plan to plant succulents in it when I have a chance. The lovely black and white frame was a gift from my dear cousin, who knew I was decorating our bedroom in a back and white color scheme. What a sweetheart!

The headboard was an old, knotty pine foot board. We painted it black and gave it a new life. At some point, we plan to make an upholstered headboard, but for now we're just fine with the one we have.

The chandelier, (my favorite thing about the room), was purchased for a steal on The mirrors that flank our bed were found at Homegoods for a mere $40 a piece.

The nightstands were a craigslist find. I cleaned them up, added new hardware and now, they're as good as new.

The chair that sits in the corner of the room was something that Joe had his eye on for months. Finally, (with some haggling), we brought the sucker home.

While Joe's nightstand has a jade plant nestled in a hammered metal planter, my nightstand has an aloe plant and a Buddha statue . . . reminding me to take a moment of relaxation and hopefully meditation everyday. Does it actually happen everyday? No. Every week? Nope. 
Eh, I'm working on it.

And there you have it, our Beachy- Glam Bedroom!

Tell me about your latest project. When you moved into your home, was there something that needed to be changed immediately, (like a lime green bedroom)? Or was your home move-in ready?
