Pulling It All Together-Master Bedroom


I love to read posts about how fellow bloggers found their style and I love to look at tours of their homes.  It is always fascinating to me to see how they put a room together and how they accessorize it.  Sometimes the interesting pieces are furniture and then sometimes it is all the accessories.  I thought it would be fun to do a series called 

PULLING IT ALL TOGETHER

This is where we would do a breakdown of a room and talk about how we found the pieces we are using and how we put it all together to create a look that we love and feels like us.  I thought I would start this series with one of my favorite rooms.

Our Master Bedroom is one of my favorite rooms, but that is not the way it always was.

  When we moved in I used all the left over odds and ends from our previous home.  The iron bed and skirted tables from the last house didn't work at all, so I wound up with this hodge podge for a couple of years.  This served it's purpose, but didn't at all reflect me or the style I wanted for this room.


All the changes started when I found this headboard at Hotel Liquidators for $75.  I knew it would be perfect for my transformation.


 Some paint and distressing and this is how it turned out.  I love it.



 Great lamps from Hobby Lobby that were half price at $39.99 each and a few seafoam and aqua accessories for DH side.  All the accessories came to just a little over $30 for the entire room.  I mostly shopped the house and repurposed things.


 Paintings that were previously in the hall got moved in here and some new candles and a fern added to my side.


 This was the look for a while.


 Then I found this nightstand at Goodwill for $12.99 and refinished the top.  This is exactly what I was looking for, now to find a dresser.


 A couple of months later I found this beauty at a used furn. store for $69.99 and refinished it to match the nightstand.  I love this piece, and the storage is fabulous.  Gorgeous detail on the old hardware.


 Now it was looking like my vision.  I really like the new pieces and it reflects a much more elegant and put together style.


 I brought in a chinese stool I found at Ross for $29.99.  Great place to place a favorite book or a cup of tea.


I changed out the drapes for something in a soft cream & camel color to match the walls.  This gives the room a more open feel.  The settee was in the den in my last house and I am thrilled it fits perfectly here.  Nice to have a place to sit and relax.


 This side of the room across from the foot of the bed  has room for my favorite goodwill find ever.  A great french chair for $15.  The garden stool end table is a Ross find for $39.99 and the painting and accessories are things I've had for years.  The armoire is from our previous home, it holds the tv and has tons of storage for seasonal clothing.


 This is today with a little touch of rusty orange added for fall and winter.  It is fun to swap out pillows and change the accessories, but all in all I love the room and it definitely reflects more of my style now.


With a few DIY projects, some thrift store shopping, plus shopping my house, I was able to transform this room for $352.94.  That's definitely what I would call a bargain.

  13. Oh my goodness you really did PULL IT TOGETHER! What a beautiful room and I'm so jealous. I really need to get a grown up room. My hubby is such a slob I've given up on my dream room. I should't though! I love how you found pieces you can reuse and tweak them to work for you! Thanks for inspiration.

  16. The best bedroom transformation I've seen, it's gorgeous! I need to do the same, but don't start, as I am not liking my master, it needs revamping! I want to change it to Wood flooring, so that's why I take so long!!! sheesh! Love, love your headboard!

  17. Stopping by from Katherine's Corner. Beautifully done! I love a room where all of the pieces have stories behind them. I especially love the contrast of the dark dust ruffle with the light duvet.

  18. You did a great job on this room, Marty! I remember when you found that headboard and what a great find it was. I love it's shape and how you added color to the wood. I also like how you waited until you found pieces that would work for you rather than just rushing to make it what you wanted. I tried to do that with our master when I had to rework it once we got the King size bed. I think I finally have our bedroom to where I don't hate walking into it. It was hard to have to do this room again when I had really loved where I'd had it decorated before that dreaded King bed!

  22. Marty,
    Your bedroom is gorgeous. I feel your bedroom should feel like a sanctuary after the end of the day. You have created that in your room. So wonderful.

  25. Just lovely Marty. Don't you love it when a room comes together and on such a budget too. I always feel more blessed when I can transform an area on a small amount of money or from things I already had, than when I go buy some fancy and pricey item. Your room is beautiful and I love what you did with the headboard. It looks like a bed fit for a king and queen.

  29. Your bedroom is beautiful Marty. I absolutely love that headboard and the finish you did on it is perfect! I have some French style bar stools that are orangey brown and I keep wanting to do something to change the color. I wonder if the dark color would be too much with my graphite color kitchen island. Sure do wish you could come over and give me a consult! Much love to you, Patti

  32. I can't believe your headboard cost you only $75??!!! Looks fabulous! Your room is definitely a favorite, and the most important thing is, YOU love EVERTYTHING in it! Enjoy!

  33. Wow! I love it! I really like everything that you've done here, and so appreciate your giving the sources for items, not so much so that I can find the items, but sometimes you mention places that I'd never thought of before. Case in point: Hotel Liquidators. That one really blew my mind because I have been looking for a headboard and wondering just where I could find one, by itself, with no frame or footboard. Hotel Liquidators never would have occurred to me in a million years. Thanks!

  36. Marty, I love your bedroom! Always have! I really like that you change the look up with new pillows and accessories to keep it fresh. And I have always loved that you have that settee for relaxing on. I so wish I had the space!

    Pulling It All Together sounds like a really wonderful feature. One of my favorite parts about blogging is seeing room reveals!
