Master Bedroom Redo Reveal

{HAPPY DANCE}
I’ve been talking about this post forever, and it’s finally time for our Master Bedroom reveal! 
Now when I say reveal I mean for the time being {of course}, because when is work ever really done?  I accomplished all my big projects I wanted done and the room is set – as is – for a while. I’ll break it down including all the projects I did in another post for now I just want to show off some a lot of pictures!

I’ve never even hinted at what our master bedroom was initially.  When we moved in our home we didn’t even really touch our bedroom except paint it green.  I initially thought I wanted to “change up my color palate” and go for greens and earth tones.  That didn’t last – I wasn’t inspired at all.  So once my husband left for deployment I vowed to redo our room by the time he returned.

By the way, can anyone take a wild guess at my favorite color scheme? Just a wild shot in the dark? Anyone?

  3. I'm speechless and in love, and you wanna know why? Because you took the vision for my bedroom right outta my head and did the thang girl! I love the wall color, and I had been contemplating the yellows in the room. And I just love love love how you didn't make everything matchy matchy...from the dresser being black, to the white nightstands, and that headboard. The headboard is beautiful. Now how much would it cost to get you to come and do mine for me:)

If you made them, where did you get the fabric? I have been searching for that fabric for a project and have not been able to find it! If you can help, I would really appreciate it!

  58. This is seriously one of my FAVORITE bedrooms right now! You did an amazing job!
    I painted so many rooms on my hubbies last deployment. Bad thing is, I didn't realize how much he didn't like blue or white (have you seen my master bedroom?) Opps, I told him, well, you left for a long time, I just went this a Potterybarn picture that I liked! lol.

    Thanks for linking it up @ Creatively Living
