Master Bedroom ~ Final Reveal

Well it only took over a year
to complete the room
and I am cheating when I say it is complete
because it's not done done
not Lori done
but it is done enough to have my little reveal!

Everything started way back in November of 2010
when I found a quilt I loved

that was my springboard
and I took off running from there!

So a little background
we have been in the house 10 years this month

the bedroom was painted the day we took possession
the day before the movers arrived with the furniture

it was priority because we had a waterbed back then
so once it goes in it stays in ~ it was something you would have to paint around
is anybody with me here??

been there ~ done that??

so I digressed there ~ nothing else was done with the room
it kinda looked like a dorm room
with a king size bed

so I previously posted about it here and here

here is the before:

and here it is today

isn't it amazing what a little paint and planning can do to a space!

the headboard went from this...

to this

inexpensive frames became works of art when I chose
4 shots of our New York City trip
enlarged them to 5x7 and had them printed in sepia
and framed them

I love this wall!

we found our flooring in August of last year
and I stained the baseboards last fall

then Trev installed them on Easter week-end which I wrote about here

I love the new floor and the area rug
talk about a steal of a deal

I was looking for an 8x10 and my friends they are
expensioso ~ but on our 4th stop we stumbled across
this one ~ just a plain Jane ~ match our walls
shut up! for $40.00
yup ~ I know ~ it was marked as damaged
so we brought it home ~ rolled it out and could not find a thing
wrong with it ~ then we did the happy dance on it!

We replaced the hunter green venetian blind
with a faux wood shutter type blind and I love it

everything is coming together
(insert smile here)

i am still looking for a vintage piece for here
I will have to start looking around
as the season to flea is starting here soon

I am also looking at another tv
a little flat screen and I can get rid of this boat anchor!

And just in case you noticed the 1980's flying saucer in the room
I have not yet found a new ceiling fan

she might be ugly but let me tell you it's like being under
a helicopter and in the summer when you do not any any A/C
ugly does not matter!

and I thought I might try to paint or stain the closet doors
would you go the same color as the walls or
dark like the new flooring??

would love to have some opinions....

so there you have it ~ my almost done master bedroom

I like it ~ I like it a lot!

Hope the week-end has been kind
mine has been a lazy one ~ did a few things but only
things that I had to do

with that being said ~ I forgot to water the plants
ta ta for now!

I love your sweetie sneaking into the pic. You've done a nice job tying it all together. I think the closet doors would disappear if they were painted the wall color. Which would be good. Mirrors might look nice too. Give you light and make the room look bigger.

You have done an amazing job of transforming you bedroom. Well done. Beautiful. If it were my room, I would keep the door the same colour as the walls.

Thank you for sharing



Nice work, Lori. I would paint the cupboards to match the walls. I think it would make that wall look bigger.
You must be enjoying it.

Great job, Lori! I love the wall color and the white trim. That is really close to the color I want to paint our living room. I think I would paint the closet doors the same color as the walls, as someone already mentioned. Love the gorgeous floor too!

I am already planning on what I am going to do to Stephanies room when she goes away to college in a few months - mainly just paint and new bedding, but a project none the less! Have a great day! xxoo
