Sprucing Up The Master Bedroom

We moved into our home in July. The first room that we painted was the Master Bedroom. I think this was the choice for a few different reasons. One of them was that the lines and the ceilings in the room I was infatuated with. High cathedral ceilings, window cut outs, and a large space. Another reason was because it was purple with teal trim and just not my style. I figured it would be peaceful to have my bedroom more my style. :)




So that was 3 full months ago.

And aside from hanging up my DIY Embroidery Project that I created for Ben, there is nothing on the wall.

I have plenty of ideas (you can see them all on my Pinterest Board here), I just haven’t executed them. That has to change and so I need to start putting things up, creating, making my dreams come true!

Here are some of those dreams….

A large area rug. I gotta tell you, as much as I love the look of hardwood, I miss the comfort of a nice carpeted floor! The compromise…a large comfy area rug.

This barnwood framed mirror is absolutely a DIY that I’d like to work on. Now to find some barnwood.


Of course there is always the possibility of a reading nook. We have the perfect spot. I’d love to put an armchair there for reading and a lamp behind it.



We have a small TV in our room and it now sits upon a piece of furniture that came from our old house. It was part of a two piece set and now that we have separated them, I think it goes quite nicely. That will be staying put.

My biggest dilema seems to come with hanging pictures. With such a large surface area on the walls, I just don’t know where to begin.

I definitley would like to do a picture collage on one of the large walls. I’ve found a few tutorials on Pinterest that I like and will likely use.

And on the other wall, I plan on creating my own DIY project, a little something like this.  But with no flower, leftover pine wood we have. I want to incorporate all of the complimentary colors to the one we chose for our bedroom.



Another thing to hang on the wall, quite possibly above our reading nook, a pallet clock. Now this DIY project sounds fun!


What is your favorite piece of decor that is in your bedroom?

  1. I am hating my bedroom right now. We (or I) need to make some major changes. Right now we have wood floors (which I love) light gray walls and a pottery barn quilt that is orange and white. I would say my favorite piece of furniture in my room are the nightstands. They are matching antique sewing machine tables. One bought at a vintage shop and the other found near a trash bin in NJ…no lie and they completely match with sewing machines still inside.
