My serene Master Bedroom is finally completed!!!! Whooooo Hoooooo! I'm so glad to be finished(and even on time which I can't believe! LOL!) and although some pieces that were originally supposed to be in this space didn't make the cut, what I replaced it with was even better. My goal was, and always will be for any space in my home, is to be able to create a space that doesn't cost a great deal of money. If you can do the work yourself or get a little crafty, even better. I'm going to always be that girl who tries to do things on the cheap if I can but still make it look fabulous! I guess that's the thrifter in me..
This is one of my last views of my bedroom. Now I know what your'e going to say. I like it the way it is. And I did. My bedroom is my sanctuary, a space that needed to be calm and relaxing. A place where I could put aside all of the troubles of the day and just RELAX. I do a lot of DIYs and thrifted a lot of pieces for my home so I was feeling pretty good about the outcome of this room that you see here. But the One Room Challenge was always in the back of my mind. Could I truly step out of my comfort zone and transform a space to make it look completely different than what it currently looks like now?? Well I guess the answer is YES!!
Honestly, there are so many different components to this room that I'd be here all day. So I will take you on a little tour and highlight some spots and I'll blog more about some special key features later.
In my previous blog post I spoke about this beautiful light fixture that was sponsored by Crystorama. Normally this type of light fixture wouldn't appeal to me. But as I searched through their large catalog, this one immediately jumped out at me! The sleek and clean lines of this piece really complimented everything else I have in this room. The gold trim gives it just the right amount of glam and is surprisingly lightweight! All of their lighting is so unique and gorgeous so trust me, it will be very difficult to decide on just one! You can find this amazing light fixture called LUXO here.
To compliment this light fixture, I only used two paint colors to compliment this space. I used Behr paint in Red Curry on the ceiling and I also used Behr paint in Saffron Strands on the sunset behind the headboard. I did a lot of DIYs in this room as well. We turned our bed into a platform bed and I wanted to create a covered headboard to add textile and print to the space. I recovered the bench at the foot of my bed using a Kantha quilt, I repurposed my wall art and painted over it and gave it some texture. I think one of the hardest things was to recreate my nightstands. I had a vision of what I wanted but I wasn't sure as to how they were going to turn out. Well they turned out better than I had ever hoped them to be!!
THE FULL REVEAL
I have to admit, I was really done last week but the bedding I originally purchased just didn't do it for me, our platform bed we made sat up too high and we had no idea how we were going to hang our massive mirror. In the end, we completed everything and I'm so happy with the results! A very big thank you to The One Room Challenge and Better Homes & Garden (media sponsor) for making this all happen and encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone. I really hope I've inspired you as well! Make sure to check out the wonderful featured designers and the guest participants for this Fall's ORC and I'm sure you'll be able to find some inspiration for every part of your home.
Until next time....
