The master bedroom for me has always been just a modge podge of things, not really decorated, and just thrown together. Every home we’ve lived in and yes we’ve lived in a lot of homes over the years, the master bedrooms were always small. This house was our first purchased home, it has 5 bedrooms and the master has a 1/2 bath so instead of using that as our main bedroom I decided to use the smaller one upstairs for our master and the “actual master” as my office/closet because I actually enjoy having a total separate room to do all that in rather than my bedroom. Though the room is quite small it suits us for now because all we do is sleep and watch some bedtime television. Back in the spring I “sorta” redid my room but the more I laid in it the more I realized it was not my style. I tried to go neutral with touches of reds but I couldn’t get on board with it. I love color and pretty things to look at. My parents had a garage sale so as I was going through all my hoarding tendencies I just couldn’t give away all of my vintage scenic prints that I have collected over the years. I decided it was time for new bedding and an entire new look for our master using thrifted and flea market finds as well as shopping my own home, which for me can be fun, like I said I have decorating hoarding tendencies. lol. I love an eclectic cottage feel and I love vintage prints. My living room is done in vintage birds and flower prints, my office is full of vintage Japanese prints and now my bedroom has my collection of scenic and cityscape prints. I love laying in my bedroom, it almost feels like I’m somewhere on the east coast in a cottage enjoying a vacation! Check out all my nooks and crannies in our updated bedroom.
Here is when we first moved in…
Here was my first makeover…It was a rustic chic look but I love greens, yellows, and blues to much to enjoy this red and brown room.
I just changed out the lamp shades I bought on the clearance shelf at Target. The side tables are laminate and were pretty beat up. I filled in the damaged parts the best I could with wood filler and then painted them the with the paint I had laying around the house we used for our living room. Sea Sprite by Olympic paints. Throw pillows a few I got on clearance at Target and the others are pillow covers I purchased at Hobby Lobby for literally a few bucks. They were half off!! Such an affordable way to change your pillows. Bedding was on clearance at Kohls.
I picked up this telephone desk at the Goodwill a few years ago. It was an awful pea green. I painted it a bright yellow and painted the desk part with chalkboard paint.
I LOVE me some gallery walls and if you follow me you know I go big or I go home. Lol. You can check out my entryway gallery wall that’s my pride and joy because of the time it took to create it and the sentimental pieces I have hanging Here
I needed a vase to complete my room and I found these cute little rustic one’s at Hobby Lobby for 6 bucks.
Excuse the massive Television, I have to leave some sort of wiggle room for my husband when decorating. If it were up to me I wouldn’t have a television in my bedroom but I compromised. The dresser I picked up at a local thrift shop, it was pretty beat up so I just painted it and stained the front drawers with a green stain and then went over it with a brown stain. Half the knobs went missing so I had to double them up.
