One Room Challenge: Master Bedroom Reveal

It's reveal day! Yea! I've been working on a makeover of our master bedroom the last six weeks and I'm excited to share with you the changes. Some late nights and weekends of work have paid off to get our room decorated. Thank you for all of you who have been so kind with your comments and thank you to Linda for hosting another inspiring challenge.  Without this deadline our room would still look the way it was, so it was worth it! I will keep this brief since you're all here for pictures. Let's take a turn about the room shall we?
Let's see a quick reminder of what the room looked like before:
Our room was already painted one of my favorite colors, Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue. We really didn't have much furniture or any art work and the curtains needed to be lengthened. It was great to start with a somewhat blank canvas. With the help of thrift stores, Craigslist and some DIYs we were able to makeover our bedroom. 
You can catch up on the progress of this room with these posts:
Week 1        Week 2         Week 3        Week 4           Week 5
I love how our DIY headboard and bench turned out. 
DIY shadow box frames and shell art give our room that coastal feel. We love to go to the beach in the summer and collect shells, most of these are one's I've collected. I sanded our dresser and put on some lime wax to give it a more natural look.
On the other side of the room we now have pictures up. I decided to go with all black frames and black and white pictures.
The armoire was a steal on Craigslist and got painted white, but I kept the original hardware, which is a crest shape. 


                                                    Chinoiserie thrift store lamp score.
This wall was looking pretty blank before. We moved the dresser to the other side of the room and put the armoire in it's place. With such a long wall I broke it up with a small desk and a side chair (free from my friend). The pictures on the wall really make it feel more inviting.


I can't wait to see what the other One Room Challengers came up with. I know it's going to be so good! Yesterday, was also inspiring with the other designers. Thanks for stopping by! Here's a list of my sources and other rooms I've done.

  8. What a restful retreat! I'm with you - I'd never get this stuff done without a deadline that is imposed by someone other than myself. :-) I'm impressed that you've tackled more than one ORC! I'm going to need some time to recover! Enjoy your beautiful master!
