katie's master bedroom reveal

Pin It

over the past couple months i’ve blogged about several bedroom projects that i’ve worked on….  the hardwood, the burlap covered box spring, the dresser, and the old window.  i hadn’t done the final reveal because i wanted it to all be perfectly put together, but i just couldn’t find the time to get a few more little things done.  so, i still have two bare walls, but not for long.  i have plans for those walls and as soon as the plans come together, i’ll be blogging about it for all the world to see. J  sooo, without further adieu, here is our new-to-us bedroom!

i'm so in love with it!  the windows used to have mini blinds and some awful curtains that i bought in a hurry when we moved in.  i replaced the blinds with bamboo roll-up shades from lowes and bright white lined panels from jcp.  i love to mix different shades of neutrals. 

the bedding is an off white and came from kohl's.  i actually found it on, but kohl's had it cheaper, and i had a coupon... :)  it's a duvet but we sleep with it because it isn't too heavy!

the rug is a printed cable knit that came from west elm.  i got it for a really good price, too!  i love how it adds a bit of pattern to the room.

the little pegboard i've had for a long time.  i can't remember where i got it--maybe tj maxx or gordman's?  i still love it, though!  and, another shade of neutral. :)  it fits perfectly on my husband's side of the bed.

here's my nightstand.  it was a part of my bedroom suit growing up.  the picture says:

i believe in You
no matter where you go in life,
no matter what you do,
please remember always,
i believe in you.

my mom and dad got it for me when i graudated.  the vase that's behind it is part of a set that was my great-grandmother's.  i love filling my home with the same things that filled her's! 

here's the beautiful dresser again.  i still love it.  our room is so, so small and it's hard to fit much of anything in it.  the dresser is on the opposite wall of the door, so it's what you see when you first walk in.  i like it being filled with pretty things like a giant canvas of an adorable toddler. :)

the mirror on the dresser belonged to a different great-grandmother.  gorgeous, huh?  the "g" i bought at michaels and covered in twine.  i made a little felt rosette and hot glued it on for a little chic touch.  i think it's so cute.

and don't forget about the window in all it's original glory! :)

the walls are painted in olympic's flagstone.  leshia and i painted it when the floors were done drying and we thought we'd surely have to do a couple coats.  but this paint covered so well we only had to do one!  i was so impressed.  i love the color.  it can have a bit of a purplish tint in artificial light, but that's not often and doesn't bother me.  i'd use it again!  if you have any questions about anything we did or where something came from, comment below and i'll get back with you!

i sure do hope you love it just as much as i do!

  24. When looking for a pet door or playpen, it's vital to survey where you need the entryway or fenced in area to go, so you can decide how substantial it should be to fit a room or passageway.
