Do you remember back in the spring when we completely gutted our master bedroom and bathroom? In April I revealed our master bathroom and told you our master bedroom reveal would quickly follow… well… 9 months later, I’m finally ready to show you our bedroom. Before we do that though, let’s take a look back at what it used to look like (because you know I love a good before and after picture!).
… and here’s what it looks like now…
The reason it took me long to post these pictures is because we were SO tired of doing projects, after our bathroom was completed, that we just recently got around to painting this room.
The timing of me showing you the reveal kind of worked out though because I think it’s fun to show you the “after” pictures with all the pretty touches of Christmas. 🙂 Even though it’s just a bedroom, I still love bringing the coziness of Christmas in; it’s especially wonderful in the evening, when the fire is lit, the Christmas lights are on, and my husband and I can curl up on the couch with a glass of wine.
The fireplace used to be pink tile from the 80’s with gold trim, which I thoroughly enjoyed ripping out. The marble was left over from our kitchen counters last year and I think it’s the perfect touch for the fireplace surround. Someday I want to build a mantle… but maybe when I recover from all the other projects we’ve done this year. 😉 The Christmas tree is a fun touch for this time of year and if you can believe it, I got it at Walmart for only $25!
This couch is one of my favorite places in our house. Snuggling up with these cozy pillows from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart, and a glass of wine, I’ve had so many good conversations with friends, my husband and my own quiet time, reflecting on the day.
The teal dresser is also one of my favorite things in our room. It used to be in the living room at our old house but when we moved into this house I wasn’t sure what to do with it because it didn’t fit anywhere. I was so excited when we redid our bedroom and I discovered that it would fit perfectly as a night stand and I love the pop of color it adds to all the neutral colors in the room!
I also love the pop of gold from the baroque frames. Oh and now that we have finally have a “grown up” bedroom, I decided it was time for us to have matching bedside lights, don’t you just love them?
And speaking of being grown up, we finally have a headboard again. A couple years ago I sold all of our bedroom furniture because I was tired of it all being so matchy-matchy, so when I saw this headboard on Craigslist I knew it would be the perfect piece for the bed in our new bedroom! The gold foil heart pillow is fun too and coordinates nicely with the chandelier above our bed. 🙂
My two absolute most favorite things about this room though, are all the light, and the views. I love natural light so every time I walk in our room it’s like a breath of fresh air, no matter how dark of a day it is. Can you believe that corner where the windows are, used to be where the tub sat? I’m SO glad we flipped the room around and I think the best decision I made in this room was expanding the size of the windows!
I will never get tired of waking up to this view of the river and every day I’m thankful for it.
So after seeing all the pictures, would you agree with me that it’s about a 100% improvement from what it was before?
