When we first looked at our house having an attached master bedroom and bath was an absolute dream for me. We have vaulted ceilings in our bedroom and they are gorgeous. They also pose quite the challenge when it comes to painting. The bedroom and bathroom are the last rooms we painted because of this. Luckily the paint job in here was the only one we could live with for a year and half. The rest of the house we pushed hard to paint as soon as possible. Now it’s finally time for our DIY master bedroom to happen and we’ve been working on our inspiration plans.
What’s funny about this room is it is so similar to the bedroom color in our old house. Unfortunately we left our old curtains so we had these really old brown ones we hung up and threw in a slipper chair that didn’t have a home in the rest of the house. The thing is I never felt like our bedroom furniture style went together right. Mike refinished this thrift store headboard with one of his first tries at farmhouse style. Pair that with a traditional set of dressers he refinished, and a pair of mid century night stands we last painted in college (one of the few pieces we have from those days) and it’s just a mish mash of styles that don’t work together. I’m not going to lie here when I say I’m struggling to pull it all together.
Here’s a of couple before shots:
Our plans include:
Painting the ceiling, trim and walls
The ceiling will be Olympic ceiling paint. The trim is Valspar Swiss Coffee. We’ve used both colors in the rest of the house. We picked out Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray for the walls. We used it in our hall and I love how neutral the gray is.
Paint the furniture
I’m leaning towards painting the bedframe and side tables but the dressers are a possibility as well. We need to do something with these different styles to make them all work.
I definitely want white room darkening curtains with grommets so they are easy to slide. I’m on the hunt to find some for a good price.
Something with the chair
This could include recovering it, replacing it or just removing it. We need to search for a piece. This could be the budget breaker as furniture can be expensive.
Find a rug
Although I find it hard to believe, this carpet in our room was fairly new when we bought it. It’s definitely the cheapest kind imaginable. I would love to find something to not only cover up some of this blah carpet but to add a little texture in the room.
This room has huge blank walls just screaming for something to be hung on them. I would love to find a really cool architectural window to put over the bed. I also would love some huge quote signs that make me smile when I come in my bedroom.
This one is definitely original to the house. We really would love one with a light. Keeping the fan is a must for us since we love to use it in the summer.
What we are keeping:
The wood doors
We have a two tone theme going on in the house so we will continue it in here.
The dressers, end tables and headboard
Although we are painting at least some of them we don’t have the budget for a complete replacement here.
I put together a collage of the elements I want to bring into the room. Once we find some cool art it will help us with the design decisions for our furniture colors. I am all heart eyes over the arched window and I think that or something similar will be our showcase piece for the room.
