Master bedroom facelift

Our Master bedroom was the last room upstairs to get any attention.  One reason is we didn't have a bed until a few months ago.  Our mattress sat on the floor for six months, waiting for our bed to come in that we had ordered.  All I can say is never order anything from Homestars wholesale furniture, I have nothing good to report about them.  

Now that we had our bed, it was time to figure out what to do.  I have this green bedspread that I don't love, but I spent way to much money on it for allergy purposes, so I had to make it work.  What to do, what to do?  After my shopping spree, I had a direction!!

Thanks to my wonderful work horse parents, painting was a breeze.  I love doing things with them.  Having them here, seeing my room come together, made it so much fun!  Love you!!

So here are the finished results

Not exactly a mans way of doing a bed, all of these have to come off before we go to sleep.  But don't they look pretty!?!  

The mirror works perfectly in the room!  Those two large orange pillows I found at Ross.  They both have a small stain, so the manager took another 25% off, they were only 6.00 each!

Could not figure out what to put above the bed.  At Hobby Lobby, in the clearance section, there were three of these left.  Rarely do they have three of anything left in the clearance section, they were meant for me!!  Mom and I bought some green, gold, and black metallic paint and added some more green to them to pull out the green in the room.   It's hard to see in the picture, but the green in them really helps tie in the bedspread!  I just have to add, that I hung these myself.  If you look behind them, more holes are in the wall than needed, but they are up, even, level, and you can't see the extra holes!  A job well done, I think!!

The fake, cute, clock on my nightstand is Hobby Lobby too, on sale of course!

The brown quilt on the end of the bed is from Target.

One thing is I still haven't settled on the curtains.  I love them, but should I iron them or keep the textured lines?  I like the texture, but not sure?  And yes I do still need to get a picture in that frame.


These prints from TJ Maxx Homestore are what began my direction for the room

Let me know what you think, you can be honest!

Pin It!

    My husband also doesn't get the pile of pillows on the bed. :) And I too, have lots of holes in the wall behind things. Too funny!
