Master Bedroom Reveal
When we moved into our "new to us" home in TN about a year and a half ago, it was in pretty decent shape for a foreclosure. One thing I wanted to do right away was paint. Every single wall in the entire house was the same shade....that builder's grade sort of a salmon-browny-beige...pockmarked with holes where the previous owners had hung their pictures and shelves.
While we couldn't afford to have the entire house painted by someone, we opted to have them do the main rooms with the soaring ceilings, and we (uh, that is I) would do the other rooms ourselves.
The Master Bedroom and Bath have been been the last rooms to get done. I admit I've dragged my feet on getting this project done. WHY, you ask?? Because it is a monumental task!! The heavy furniture needed to be moved, all the baseboards and walls cleaned, the holes patched, etc. etc.......
There was a special wall treatment I wanted to do in this room, and I knew it was going to be a doozy...
But TOTALLY worth the effort!
The stenciling actually took longer than painting the walls! Yup...don't take this on unless you know what you're getting into!! It wasn't difficult, but time consuming because of moving and taping the stencil in place, climbing up and down the ladder to refill my roller and roll off most of the paint, and then do it all over again.
I found the middle of the wall and then started by taping the stencil in the middle at the top. I chose to let it partially hang off the wall because I knew it was too big to fit perfectly and I wanted it to look random. I needed to use a small brush at the top and at then again at the bottom because my roller wouldn't fit all the way to the crown molding and baseboard (and I didn't want to bend the plastic stencil).
I used the color of the bathroom walls for the stencil. I can't wait to show you the bathroom, but I have a couple more projects to finish up in there before the final reveal.
Our bedroom is finally the relaxed and peaceful retreat that I wanted all along. The soft light at the windows (I hung a pair of matching vintage chenille bedspreads as curtains), the dreamy bedding, beautiful wall color and lack of clutter make this a space I love to fall asleep in!
Isn't our headboard beautiful? I love the intricate carvings on it. I found it in FL at the same barn where I found the double tier table that I painted with the clock graphic. The woman was about to paint it white and mark it up, so I got it for a really great, pre-paint steal of a price!
This vintage light fixture is one of my favorite features in our bedroom. I found it down in a FL Goodwill for $9.99!!! It sheds a soft light and I love the crazed/cracked look of the glass.
In the second part of the Master Bedroom Reveal, I'll share the smaller projects that I did in this room that helped to bring it all together and my little trick to help hide the clutter and keep it organized.
Let's take a little peek at the Before and After, shall we?
Ahh, SO SO SO much better, isn't it??
Thanks for making it to the end of this post! I try to keep the photos to a minimum but they are my weakness! I want to share every corner with you guys :)
Watch for the second part of this reveal to come soon with the projects...
