Master Bedroom Makeover

My Master Bedroom Makeover has been dragging along, and I’m so happy that the day has arrived to share and I can consider it DONE! My husband built  our homemade bed almost 2 years ago, drapes hung a year ago, walls/ceiling painted 8 months ago, it was simply the finishing touches that I just couldn’t seem to hammer down. I dedicated the month of April to finish, and I did!If you didn’t realize, my goal is to tackle a room a month around here. In January it was my boys room reveal, in February/March it was my girls Fancy room (it needed two months), and now the Master in April.  I heard once that a Master bedroom should be a retreat with no pictures of your kids. I took that to heart and included images from trips my hubby and I took together (Alaska, Vermont, France), and only placed pictures of the two of us throughout the years around the room.

Who doesn’t love some BEFORE & AFTER’s?  I used some of the same elements from before, just re-purposed them! Notice the giraffe’s in the corner…

All I could locate were low res files, so slightly pixelated…

There isn’t anything too fancy or exciting DIY wise in this room. The colors are pretty trendy online right now, but I love it. It it is calm and relaxing and I hope I can keep it clean!

Here is a quick little video snippet so you can get a feel for the room as a whole:

  1. What a lovely master bedroom you got there. I really like the yellow and white color combination of the wall paint and those pieces of furniture. You and your husband did an excellent job! And those photographs are amazing, by the way.

  2. Your room looks wonderful! I really love the colour combination. What is the name of the grey colour on your wall?
