Master Bedroom Makeover coming at you today! This bedroom has been a long time in the making! I made over this then clients home (now friend) when we moved to Connecticut about 3 years ago. I looked at doing her entire home and knew we would do it in stages, with the master bedroom being last on the list. Isn’t that always the case? I do agree that you want to do your main living areas first, then tackle the bedrooms. But how nice would it be to have a sanctuary to relax in first?
You might remember this home, everything is was thrifted! And this master bedroom is no exception, besides a couple new pieces to complete the space. I do want to mention that there are little things you can do before completely overhauling a space. Like painting furniture! When I went to Amy’s home 3 years ago I suggested that she paint the dark dressers she had white so it would brighten up the space and feel cohesive, rather than looking like a bunch of thrifted furniture.
Thank you The Home Depot for sponsoring this post
Master Bedroom Before and After-
Can you believe the change? Same bed. And we do have the same dresser (painted white) in the room that you will see coming up. Let’s look at the before again….
Walls were color matched at Home Depot- Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray
The one new piece of furniture we added to the room was THIS writing desk from The Home Depot. Amy is going to start working from home, so a new desk was in order. We are in love with this modern navy blue one with gold accents. I really liked how the modern style would give her thrifted and vintage finds an entirely new, refreshing look! And THIS The faux fur desk chair!! I can’t even handle how awesome it looks!
You can see in the above, before photo she did have an armoire in her bedroom between the first time I took the photo. She does love the armoire, but we discussed that it really wasn’t serving a purpose, besides taking up space. She had a bunch of bedding that was not ever used. So we moved the armoire to a new spot in her home and now this desk can really shine and not feel so cramped.
Amy is the thrifting queen and finds great pieces that I can work with! She found the art above her desk for $20, it was from Minted. The baskets to the right of the desk were both $5 each at a Tag Sale! The large jug on the desk she found for $8 at Good Will and books that the jug is sitting on were $1 each at a Tag Sale. Just shows that mixing in thrifted pieces with a couple new will give you such a personalized and affordable look! Check-out the wall shelf she found for $8 at Good Will!
We found brackets and got just a basic piece of wood from Home Depot that was already painted white to make a custom shelf!
Another addition to this master bedroom was wallpaper! I mean, you didn’t think I could do a room without wallpaper did you?
I hung THIS removable wallpaper from Home Depot on the wall where their tv is. It makes such a statement all in it’s own! The Home Depot has knocked it 0ut of the part with their fresh spring items! This room feels so light and bright with all these new additions. (PS- the stand the snake plant is on was $10 from Good Will!)
The best part about wallpaper is that you don’t really need anything else! Less is more! We didn’t hang any of the art back up and Amy loves it! She said it is so much more restful to relax to.
New ceiling fan was a need in this room! It totally updates the look of the room and blends so well with the modern desk. We found the fan at The Home Depot HERE.
We also ended up doing two rugs to add some color and also get the right size! You can find the rugs HERE. And another addition was removing the old blinds and going with something a lot cozier and that softened the room, you can find the affordable roman shades HERE.
THIS mirror was a nice addition above her bed, it makes the bed more of a focal point and adds height! Love how you can see the wallpaper reflection in the mirror.
Simply changed out the knobs on the nightstand to these Amy scored at Anthro! The nightstands Amy got on Craigslist for $25 each!
We found all the real plants in this room from The Home Depot too! If you follow me on Instagram you know stopping at The Home Depot weekly to get a plant is one of my favorite addictions 🙂
Hopefully that gave you some ideas on how to update your bedroom by mixing in thrifted pieces with a couple special new pieces! Like the thrifted trunk Amy found at a Tag Sale for $20! Click on an image below to shop the room or similar items.
