Master Bedroom Reveal

Monday, July 25, 2011

So I finally got my bedroom where I want it to be:






I ended up with this bed (you can click it to see the details):





The pillows were there from before. Oh, that reminds me, let me show you a before picture. I liked it for the eight years we had it, but it was so traditional and monochromatic, and the shades were really heavy.  This picture quality stinks, but it's all I have:



I kept the paint color, painted a lot of the furniture black, and changed the curtains.  These are from Target, $10 each. I added the black grosgrain ribbon (1.5 inches) with fabric glue. 



The mirror over the bed is from Home Goods.  The white slip covered chair came from the guest room.  I did buy the bench new from Horchow, but it was moderately priced (at least for Horchow):


Someone asked me for a link to the Black and White Zebra Print Rug so here it is....just click the image:





I had the huge standing mirror in storage (can you believe I wasn't using it?)  I had the blue/gray table, but bought fabric at Joann's for $6 a yard and made a fitted cover for it.  The lamps, which you can't really see, are gorgeous french wired crystal from Home Goods:


I also painted the doors black. I love it in this room.  After doing these, I immediately went and did  my kitchen doors, but they looked awful.  It made the kitchen soooo dark, so they are white again now. I hate when I try a project and it turns out to be a total waste of time.





So, I'm really excited about our new bedroom on a budget!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Stacy dear! Thank you again for your visit and as I come here to see your budget project, I am soooooo impressed! I know budget projects because our entire HOUSE was done on a budget!

Your bedroom, especially that first lovely photo from the hallway SHOULD and MUST go into a magazine like VERANDA! The colors are GORGEOUS and the mirrored pieces are quite effective. YOU KNOW how to properly combine styles!!!

I had posted about two weeks ago, my entire home on my blog. It was so fun to show people the process that this little brick house turned French style cottage went through. I had to delete the post however..I may put it back up soon.....but your work is stunning and CONGRATULATIONS! Have a magnificent day out there in my former home...I lived in S. Hamilton, Beverly and Rockport over an eleven year span...so lovely!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Well I can see why this room post got so many comments! It is beautiful Stacy! I do love the chandys and they make the space super special. Laughed at the staple gun comment, been there many times. Over all it seems like a "glamma" room which is what Mary McDonald calls her glamourous rooms. I just read her book, you have to get it!

Barb@curlywillowdiy said...

Beautiful room! I especially love the chandlers. I have the same one in my didnig room! I'm also your newest follower.
