A few days ago, I gave you a tour into our home covering the main areas (kitchen, living room, family room). Just in case you missed it, you can find it by clicking this link, Home Tour – Living Room, Family Room, & Kitchen. Today, we are touring the unfinished Master Bedroom. I have been trying out this blue combo to see how I like it. I am used to decorating with darker colors such as burgundy or brown. But this summer, when the room really needed some sprucing up, I tried to brighten it up a bit with lighter colors. The paint color is as is since we moved in. Although the bedding and decorations are a lighter color, I am not sure what to make of it yet.
Once again, our home has very poor lighting so the photos are very dark.
I found the bedding at a Ross store along with some of the decorative pieces like this clock and the wall mirrors further down.
The lamps were purchased from Walmart.
Remember those painted Mason Jars I did a few months ago? I am using them as flower jars in the room.
The hubs side of the bed.
These mirror frames which I found at Ross were blue only. The specks of white came about when I decided that blue probably was not the best color for the walls since the paint is a bluish-grey. I had already removed and threw away the box and tags so I decided to keep them.
When I attempted to paint the mirror frames with white chalk paint and realized that the paint was not holding properly, I decided to wipe it off. Some of the paint was already dried in various spots and that is the look I ended up with. My mistake gave them a sort of distressed look! I thought it was cool!
And how about my large golden photo frame that I painted brown earlier this Spring? Well, it got a makeover in white and has been moved to the bedroom.
This large mirror was at the house from the previous owner. Hubby is not a big fan of it.
You can get a glimpse of the door leading to the bathroom (half bath) from next to the mirror.
I wrote a post on how to write on canvas. Here is the piece displayed in the bathroom.
Here are all the DIY pieces that make the room and bath come together.
As you may notice, the room does not have any huge makeover. I only changed out the color of the decorations and added a couple more items to spruce it up a little.
In reality, the room needs a full makeover with paint and furniture. But one project at a time is the way we are looking at it. Hope you enjoyed the little tour, despite the dark photos. The final part of the tour is the girls room which I hope to have up in the next post.
What do you think of the colors? Do you go with darker or lighter? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments!
