We recently completed our Master Bedroom and it is so nice to have a bedroom that reflects us. Goodbye 80's shag carpet! While we were painting, we kept wondering why we didn't paint years ago. It really is incredible how much change a coat of a paint brings. We painted our headboard with oil rubbed bronze spray paint and it's like a whole new piece of furniture....
I struggled with what to put over the bed for weeks. I visited every HomeGoods, TJ Maxx and Marshalls in our area. I finally settled on this framed chalkboard that I added our monogram to with chalk.
My favorite purchase (and biggest splurge) was on bedding. I searched for a vintage quilt, but because I needed king size, there wasn't much out there. We ended up with the Multistar Patchwork Quilt from Pottery Barn and I love it.
The only new piece of furniture that we purchased was the bluish gray side table (Preston table from World Market).
The new window seat is very inviting. I am a book lover so I enjoy having some of my books on display. The bookshelves are actually part of a repurposed wall unit. You can read more about that here.
There are lots of throw pillows (I *may* have a slight throw pillow addiction). None have a specific spot. I like to move them around. They all coordinate. And that makes it easier for my husband when he makes the bed :)
A peek into our bathroom from the bedroom. Now it doesn't feel like such a shock to walk out of our pretty bathroom into our old ugly bedroom.
The bedroom from the bathroom...
My mother made the stained glass lamp and recently passed it on to me.
Even though I had visions of a chandelier in this room, the ceiling fan ultimately stayed. We use the fan almost every night and we decided we would miss it. We moved our Ikea gray check slipcovered chair up here too.
We have had this pine bedroom furniture since we bought our first home. There was a time when I thought it was too "country" and considered replacing it. I am glad I didn't. More recently, I have become more confident in my own style and country pine is what I love. This furniture is extremely well made and I now plan on keeping it for a long time.
The picture of the barn reminds me of Vermont.
