Master Bedroom Surprise Update! Before and After

17 October 2011

Master Bedroom Surprise Update! Before and After

Deployment Project # 86


I am ready to show you my master bedroom. I know it took FOREVER....and to be honest, I STILL have a few things I want to tweak in here, but for the most part...It is COMPLETE!

But before I show you what it looks like now, I have to show you what it looked like before I started....

Here are the BEFORE pics  (get ready....LOTS of photos)


I just wasn't feeling the yellow walls and swags on the windows anymore.....

And here it is NOW...


Ahhhhhhhh, I just LOVE it!!!!!
It feels brighter, calmer. My 8 year old even said, "Mommy, your room looks like a hotel room now"....I am assuming she meant a LUXURY hotel room, right?!?! :)

Here is another view of the OLD room..
..I was trying out paint samples (hence the swatches on the wall)


...and the AFTER of the same space....




I love how the gray paint (Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore) looks. I hit a home run with this color!!!! 
And the good news is, I can change up the bedding color if I want and the walls will match....
the yellow was soooo hard to match it with anything!!!



I made these swags a few years back....but had grown tired of them. The windows still looked bare, even with the swags.


I hung this chevron fabric to make the walls look taller and more sophisticated.


Another BEFORE shot...


....and the AFTER. My plan is to put a chair here in this space under the mirror, but I just haven't gotten around to that yet....

(You can read about the mirror HERE)


Here are a few more photos of the room.... I am just so happy with the way this space turned out!

One of my favorite features of this room are the 2 matching mirrors I hung above the nightstands. I LOVE it!

I love the grays, blues and whites and the POP of yellow!!!

(Read about the no-sew curtains HERE)

Just for dramatic effects, let's look one more time at the 

...and the AFTER

What a difference. Even the furniture looks different. I love the gray color on the walls. I have written it down and will have to find somewhere to use that color. It's perfect.

Love the new window treatments and pillows! Looks great!

I think the chevron curtains are a MAJOR improvement. Changes the whole look. Plus....loving the way you changed up the framed photography over the headboard. The consistant size and frames is a huge upgrade. This before and after is a great example of how blogging really does help us improve our design sense. There was nothing wrong with the before. The after is just that much of an upgrade. Looks awesome. Hope you are enjoying it.

I'd love to know where you got the monogrammed pillow cases or did you make them? I love them!
