Master Bedroom: Update


I first shared pictures of our master bedroom (in this post) back in September 2009.

Here are a few pictures from that post, taken not long after we moved in.



The next few pictures were taken back in January (Karlie's birthday to be exact).  Our new bed had just arrived and was waiting to be assembled but I wanted a few more pictures as "before" shots.




Here are some pictures of what our room looks like today.






So far we have:

  • Removed the dresser 
  • Switched to a white platform storage bed from World Market
  • Removed the sconces
  • Replaced the ceiling fan with a chandelier we found on Craigslist for $20
  • Sanded and painted our nightstands and antique mirror
  • Replaced the lamps with some from TJMaxx
  • New bedding from HomeGoods
  • New chair from Ikea.
  • New curtains from Ikea
  • Painted a table we found at a yard sale for $1
  • Brought in a floor mirror from Ikea
  • Built a headboard {that I H-A-T-E...please ignore it and stay tuned.  We have all the materials to make it something we both love and hopefully it will be done in the next week}
It still needs a few more things:
  • FIX THE HEADBOARD
  • Something hanging over the gray chair
  • We're going to make something new to hold my jewelry and get rid of the brown jewelry stand under the antique mirror
  • Curtains need to be hemmed
  • We need to buy knobs for the nightstands (the ones in the picture actually belong in the kitchen...)
  • Spray paint the chair legs ORB (oil rubbed bronze)
  • New laundry hamper
  • New paint (the previous owners painted all the walls with flat paint, which looks incredible, but is impossible to clean.)
I think that's about it.  We're still not finished but we love how far it's come.  Slow and steady!

It's beautiful! I absolutely love it. I also love that you slipped ORB in there...

I love it! Ever since I saw Anna's mirror, I've been wanting to get one so bad!
