One Room Challenge: Master Bedroom DONE

Well friends, here is my finished room. I absolutely love it. I hope you like it too. This was a lot of fun and I am thrilled that we get a nice little oasis in an otherwise crazy house! I have never had a room this pretty before. It’s a relaxing, vintage with modern elements, simple, romantic, sleek french inspired bedroom. Take a look! First, I’ll give you some fun detail shots…

Closet curtain panels and window curtain panels are hanging by wire and clips – a kit purchased from Ikea (see previous posts for more info on this…).

Let’s see those befores and afters again though.

I am so so SO happy with how this turned out. I was a total newbie at this and took a lot of risk. But in the end everything turned out pretty darn good for my first try (not to mention the 6 week deadline).

This last week I painted my jewelry armoire (including the hardware), ordered stuff on amazon to get here fast (like pillowcases, bedskirt, decorative lights), finished painting lamp, painted a mason jar, picked up some fake flowers at hobby lobby, bought some candles, wall art, and curtain panels at walmart, and then worked hurriedly to get it all in order! It totally paid off! Now I need to finish this blog post so I can go clean my kitchen and living room (which have been woefully neglected these last 3 days!)

Thanks ONE ROOM CHALLENGE for this opportunity to re-do my room. 😀

  1. The art on the wall above your bed is so romantic – Paris and a wedding picture! I really like your French theme. You did a great job on the dresser! The curtains from Ikea are really pretty. Your before pictures make me feel better! Maybe I can do something with our master bedroom. (I worked on the guest room for this ORC because I thought that would be easier!) Your room is such an amazing transformation!
