Master Bedroom Remodel | Redesign

I’ve been anxious to share some of our home remodel and decor with you.  Unfortunately, I have the horrible habit of starting one room, and before completing it, moving on to another.  The Master Bedroom is almost complete!
To remodel this space, we removed old wood shutters, painted the windows {but retained the hardware}, caulked and painted the moldings, painted the room and replaced the carpet.  We hung heavy woven cotton drapes for privacy.
I know, there is nothing cute about a tv, but it’s a must for me to fall asleep.  My chest of drawers is home to my jewelry box, a gift from my husband on Valentine’s Day the year we married, engraved with my then future initials, JAB.
We are so thankful that both of our nightstands fit in our new home!  We survived three years without and it wasn’t pretty!  Above, Chris’ side is home to a Pottery Barn task lamp and trunk along with a family photo {by RPM}.
Proving that you don’t have to spend money to redecorate your room, I utilized items I already owned.  I switched the matte in the Pottery Barn frames from the original burlap {used in our previous home} to the included white matte. A collection of my favorite books are displayed along with my travel jewelry case for convenience.  With a toddler running around, I can no longer risk leaving my rings loose on the nightstand!  The jar has been recycled from a bottle of lotion and I dried hydrangea from an old floral arrangement.  The jewelry tray has been seen quite a bit on this blog!  You never know where it will find a home next!
One of my favorite pieces in the bedroom is the trunk from my Grandma.  It holds additional pillows, blankets and a few family keepsakes.  Click here for the no sew toss pillow tutorial.
It’s time for the before photo:

    You did a great job. I love how your bedroom looked after the remodeling. It’s more warm and comfortable and collected. It reminds me of the old homes for sale I’ve seen in Asia.

    Wonderful job with the renovation! I can definitely see the radical shift from the cluttered urban feel to the relaxing tropical aura of the new setup.

    Congratulations on doing such a wonderful job! I can’t believe you did all this inexpensively. We are planning to remodel our children’s bedroom. Then, we’re going to paint the walls. Hopefully, our project turns out as beautiful as this one.

    The spaces are absolutely brilliant. I love the design and the combination of colors. You did awesome and it looks like the construction is professionally done.

  • I love the white themed minimalistic approach on the interior design. It maximizes the available space and make it seem more relaxing.

    That’s quite a very zen-like home. IT attracts serenity and makes you not want to leave its confines. Beautiful!
