Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone!

This week just feels like it has flown by!!!  I guess it's because school is back in session and I've still been finishing up projects around the house.  

I finally have my master bedroom makeover ready to share! To see how it looked before, click here.  There are two things left to fix in there, but other than that, it's done.   I'm loving how light and bright it is now and "less busy" than it was before.

  

We painted the room in Linen White by Benjamin Moore.  It's my favorite white color!  It's not a stark white, but a creamy soft white  (it really does look like the color of linen).

  
I replaced my green floral bedding with a new white set and added my burlap European shams that I recently purchased.


I added a touch of color by adding some purple flowers on each side of the bed.  


I changed out the drapes with the buffalo checked ones that were in my kitchen.  (I'll reveal what's now hanging in the kitchen in another post.)


I placed a small burlap bench at the foot of the bed.



I kept the cow canvas above my bed and brought in a black pharmacy floor lamp to the other side of the room.  It was sitting in my basement until I realized it would be perfect in here!


I'm loving the change!  It feels like it flows better with the rest of the house now.  If my walls could talk, they would be saying "Thank-you!"  They were in such bad shape.  I had so many nail holes and scratch marks  all over them.  Moving the furniture out in order to re-paint allowed us to clean the room thoroughly.  I cleaned out all the junk that was stored under my bed and took some of it to Goodwill already!  You really have no idea how dirty a room is until you remove the furniture.  It was scary folks!!  

I've still been busy making a few more changes to my kitchen.  The eating area to be specific.  I'll share that soon.  

By the way, did anyone catch the firefighters hostage news coverage yesterday????  That was my husbands fire department!  Luckily, he was not at work that day.  I'm thankful that all ended well.

Thanks for stopping by!

GORGEOUS! Over the top pretty and I love the checked drapes in there. We are so related and you will see when I share the other guest room in the future. I didn't realize that was Jimmy's station involved. Son in law who is on the swat team was involved and yes, so glad all are okay.

Good Afternoon Kelly, How bright and fresh your bedroom looks. There is a definite sense of calm in this room. My mother-in-law calls what you did in cleaning your bedroom "giving it a good top and tail"....don't you just love that saying.
Have a lovely day,
Best Wishes

LOVE the changes!! The buffalo check curtains, burlap shams and the pillow on the chair all work so well together! I love how the cow print above the bed has black in it which ties in so nicely with the black pieces of furniture you have in the room. And of course I adore your new white bedding!! The whole room looks very very beautiful and so you!!

The drapes are splendid. Also love the white bedding against the black bed. I was praying for the firemen and am thankful they are okay.

Looks very restful, just how a bedroom should be. And dust behind the furniture??? OMG, I saw mine and you are right, it's scary. The bunnies morph into dust dino's.

Kelly, your master looks like a perfect place to retreat and relax. Love the buffalo checks and the white sheet set with the tuck detail. Who makes those? The burlap pillows are the perfect compliment to the checks of the curtains.

So lovely! Our bedroom has been the spot that catches the overflow of stuff when we have other remodel projects going and now for my biz stuff - I've been calling it 'The Storeroom We Sleep In'! I'm ready to reclaim it and your post makes me really ready to create a lovely retreat out of it!
So glad your man wasn't involved and that everything worked out!
