It’s done!  It’s done!  Our master bedroom is done!  I’m excited to share the finished product with you today (after months of work). First, a sweet (and magic) master bedroom reveal video James and I put together. It really captures the space and how we use it.

If you’re anything like me, your master has never really gotten the attention it deserves.  It has always been the room that we just deal with, that no one really sees, so it’s always the last on the priority list.  Really, that is so backward.  For us, our master is where we probably spend the most time.  It’s usually where I read to Ruby, often where we play, and typically where Jon and I work when our baby goes down for the night.  After having Ruby, I realized how much time we actually spend in that room and how much more functional and comfortable it could be if I just gave it a makeover.  Let’s walk down memory lane, shall we?

Remember what it looked like when we moved it?  Hello purple!

Before we moved in, we painted the entire room Benjamin Moore’s Blue Heather. Picking the paint color wasn’t easy. I had a few other paint colors in mind, but after putting samples on the walls (and even painting the room a completely different color), everything was reading kind of muddy. I always recommend purchasing several samples and trying them in the room, in sunlight. I had to go back to the drawing board a few times, but finally found the perfect shade of blue I was looking for.

The room sat painted and unfinished for several months. Then finally we were ready to move on to the next step, the Board and Batten Statement Wall (you can watch the video here!). The other parts of the room I’ve shared: the diy headboard, the spray-painted lamps, the ceiling fan makeover, the pelmet boxes and drapes, the artwork, and the spray-painted chairs. Still more details coming in the next week (including that daybed I purchased for $25 from a thrift store, among many other things). The room is a mix of old and new, sentimental and straight up inexpensive, with a few splurges mixed in. My favorite kind of design.

    Hi Mallory! We bought it at Carpet One, but I can’t remember the manufacturer. They still have the style though. Good luck and thanks for reading!

    Love it! Love the blue and love the little reading area at the foot of the bed. I haven’t seen that look before and I love it. I also love your outdoor deck video with the table and especially that rug! Great job Jen. 🙂
