I have so many half-finished projects around the house its not funny right now! There are blog posts to be written and “afters” to be photographed but it has been a very hectic week so I thought it would be fun to share a “before” picture of our master bedroom as well as my plans to revamp it.
As with most of the house, the master bedroom is a work in progress. Now that we are finally in our own home after years of rentals and moving constantly I am ready to give this space a true “style.” We started a while back by building our own headboard using Ana White plans. We refinished an antique Drexel table for my husband’s nightstand and I bought a white nightstand on my big IKEA trip a few months ago.
The bedding set is from Target and I love it but I feel like the room is pretty bland with the beige, white and grey. Something is missing. I’m not sure if I want to pop some color in the room or keep it neutral somehow. Also bothering me is the bedskirt…we have a Sleep Number bed so we don’t have a standard boxspring and frame and our current bedskirt fits horribly. I’m on the lookout for a box-pleated white version to tidy up the look of the bed.
The floral chair on the left side is seriously the most comfy chair ever. It is where i have nursed all three of our babies and it is never going away. That being said, it is my hubby’s since before we met and I don’t care for the pattern of the fabric and it definitely doesn’t do anything for the space. I don’t want to spend the money to upholster it so I am trying to work up the courage to slip cover it. You know how I have been avoiding the sewing machine lately though (see hot glue gun exhibits A, B, and C!). I’m also not sure if I want a bland neutral fabric for the slip cover or if I want to try something more bold.
Another big project are the empty walls-we need curtains and some wall art. My husband wants paintings for the space over the headboard so we have been scouring etsy and the web for the perfect pieces with no luck so far. I’m also at a loss on what I want for curtains. Again-do I want to stick with the neutral theme or accent with some color? Once I figure out that question the room should fall into place fairly quickly.
So, thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Would you pop this room with some color or stick with the neutral color palette?
