Hello dear friends and Happy Thanksgiving to my friends here in the United States! I am SO thankful for each and every one of you!!
I am going to keep today’s post short so ya’ll can get back to all things Turkey day. I’m sharing my next project: our master bedroom!
If you scrolled all the way to the bottom of Tuesday’s post, or if you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen this photo:
Yep. That’s our ginormous sleigh bed, and that is me getting started on banishing the brown. After sharing our master bedroom last week when I was showing ya’ll what I did with these mirrors, I was more motivated than ever to make some changes in this space.
Here are a few photos from that post to refresh your memory:
There is just too much wood in here for me. The only piece I do love in this space is my night table that I picked up at an estate sale. If our whole set was this style, I don’t think I would be considering paint.
There are a few other pieces in the room that you didn’t see.
Here is my dresser:
And a lovely view of our unmade bed! #reallifeyall And I do normally have decor on my dresser, but I had removed it and then remembered I needed a before photo.
And here is my hubby’s dresser:
And that is his decor haha. It’s crying SOS.
My plan is to paint the furniture first.
Then I’d also like to do something with this chair:
It actually goes with the mini sofa in my office that I slipcovered a few years back. Here is part of it in this picture from my faux stone wall reveal:
You can see how I slipcovered the sofa in this post.
I will probably do something similar.
I’d also like to replace the ceiling fan:
Neither my hubby nor I use the ceiling fan, and I think a pretty light fixture would look much better.
I’ll need to update my mirror as well:
Then the fun part…decorating! I’d like to find something for this wall opposite the bed:
As well as something to go on either side of my dresser:
Maybe some candle sconces?
I also need something for above the bed and I have something in mind already, and I’d like to add a rug to anchor the bed:
If I can figure out a way to add height to this table so that it matches the height of my hubby’s nightstand, that would be great:
His name is Brian, by the way. I always refer to him as hubby. 🙂
I am also going to be on the hunt for some new things to decorate both of our dressers.
I hope ya’ll don’t mind hanging out with me in our master bedroom for a couple of weeks while I get it all done. I am really excited about finally doing something in here, and it is looking so much better already!!
Don’t worry, I have a whole new haul to work through, so I’ll be back working on those before you know it.
I’ll be back with the bed reveal on Tuesday!
UPDATE: See how the bed looks paintedHERE now!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
