It always amazes me to see how a room evolves. The Master Bedroom in this house has been one that has taken many changes, but I think I finally have it the way I want. Thanks to a little paint, fabric and some fabulous Thrift Store finds.
This was the before when we first moved in. I used all the odds and ends from our previous home since this room was about half the size of the master bedroom in our previous home. Downsizing is always hard, you have to use what will fit and make do. A simple upholstered headboard, family photos over the bed, antique washstands for nightstands and really simple decor. (These were all leftover pieces from my antique primitive days.)
A small settee and chair and that was about it. Not really reflecting my style, just bits and pieces from various rooms from the past.
This is exactly what I was looking for, now to find a dresser.
I found a fabulous $15 French style chair at Goodwill that helped add the finishing touches to the bedroom. I replaced the upholstery on the arms and gave the wood a wipe down with walnut stain to refresh it and it looks like a million dollars.
Here we are a few months later with some new bedding and drapes, but all the furniture has stayed the same. The drapes are Ikea that I added ribbon trim to and I also made the matching pillow shams from a sheet and ribbon trim. You can see my tutorial for the drapes here and the euro shams here.
I am so enjoying this room and it definitely reflects my style today.
