Master Bedroom Reveal

IMG_1065editThis feels as though it’s been a LONG TIME comin’. By far, the longest project we’ve taken on yet. I feel like it was worth the wait though (even if it was miserably frustrating living in a construction zone for a month). It all started when one Saturday afternoon I put a hammer through my daughters wall to see “what was behind the plaster”. My husband and I had been talking for a while about possibly ripping her wall down and making one big Master. So, there we were discussing the likely possibilities of what was behind the 100 year walls. I said aloud “I’m just going to punch a small hole and see what’s back there….” My husband knows after 12 years of marriage not to stop me. The problem that I found myself in once I got a good solid hole started…..was……that I couldn’t stop. The plaster started pulling off, and it was like popping bubble wrap. I. Could. Not. Stop.

So. I kept going. Until the dust got into my lungs and I ran off crying like a baby. Then my handy husband and neighbor took over and finished.

So begins the fun part!




I love how you THINK you know what you want…..you have a solid plan. This is what my plan looked like:

  • Shiplap the back wall where our bed will now go.
  • A rod iron or metal bed of some kind.
  • Purchase really bold, bright, and LOUD area rugs.
  • Paint everything white.

Of that original plan, I stuck to ONE thing. One, friends. One. I painted all the walls white. Everything else changed. I slowly began finding pieces that I wanted to incorporate and the entire plan just evolved from there.

And let me tell you! Am I so glad it did. Our new room is even more than I could’ve ever imagined. I’m so love with this space. It’s also a great reminder that you can buy as you go, and just adjust when needed.

It all started when I purchased this bed from Funky Junk Boutique. My love for antiques won in the bed battle. So, I knew I no longer wanted shiplap now…..plus I was legitimately concerned that it would it be a repeat of the “hole in the wall”. Once I start, I would want to shiplap the whole room, then the whole house. And I don’t have time for such things. After some late night ponderings, it was decided that I would wallpaper the back wall! Something loud and bold, and vintage inspired. I found an amazing company to work with (really an A+ review from me!!). I got my wallpaper in what seemed like record time! It was fairly easy to put up, but don’t ask for me a tutorial, because I’m not an expert.

Once, the bed and wallpaper were in everything just fell into place. In short, I found this really cool picture at Goodwill which gave everything an English Country motif that I was in love with. This led to neutral rugs, white curtains, and some additional antique dressers and accents.

I knew early on that we would install a faux barn beam where the existing wall was. We used some old reclaimed fence slats for the beam.

I attempted to deconstruct a chair for the “new” side of the room. I wouldn’t recommend ever trying such a thing. I’ll leave it at that. I reupholstered it with a painters drop cloth. Remember the Christmas Tree boxes I was making back at Christmas time? I used one of those to make an ottoman. I used Miss Mustard Seeds white wax and covered the top with the drop cloth as well.
