Welcome back to One Room Challenge (ORC)! I can’t believe it’s been three weeks already!? I have really enjoyed all your comments and feedback, it’s what keeps me going! If you’re just joining me in this journey check out One Room Challenge Week 1 http://wp.me/p1s2CI-nL. and Week 2 http://wp.me/p1s2CI-oh.
To recap here is what our unfinished master bedroom looked like at the beginning of ORC.
Today I wanted to share the details of our master bedroom that we had completed before ORC and what I have accomplished on my punch list this week.
We’ve moved into our current home a year ago, 4 weeks before our 2nd daughter was born. Here’s what the room looked like before we moved.
As you can see, it was very neutral and gave us a blank slate. First order of business was to paint these wall! I hired a professional painter since I was due within weeks of moving into our new home. I love blue and knew I wanted a blue grey paint color. I narrowed down my choices to Sherwin William Tidewater, Sea Salt and Comfort Grey. We ended up going with SW Tidewater.
We placed all our bedroom furniture from our old master bedroom into this master as well as a dark wood dresser from our previous guest bedroom. I love our Riley Upholstered headboard from Pottery Barn that we’ve had for a few years.
Pottery Barn has a few slipcover options, but I just haven’t loved them over the years. Thus, my desire to make the upholstered headboard custom by adding nailhead and fabric trim.
I love our double white dresser with the modern silver pulls, yet still has a vintage look.
When we moved to Charlotte three years ago I looked everywhere with all the great furniture stores nearby, but couldn’t find a double white dresser that I loved in our price point. I found this one at Ashley’s furniture of all places. Notice how it’s missing a pull already, thanks to young children.
I absolutely love our bedside tables we bought a few years ago! Originally I wanted Pottery Barn’s Lucia bedside table. However, the price point of $200 a piece and the small drawer space was limiting. I scored two bedside tables for $200 from HomeGoods, which is the cost of one from Pottery Barn. I had mix matched side tables in our previous homes, which I love, but wanted a more linear look. The matching glass table lamps with blue shades were also a HomeGoods find, which would have cost close to $200 a piece from another retail store.
A few months ago I finally found silver vintage looking frames to display my prints from my favorite artist, Monet, that I purchased from Musse d’prsay in Paris!
Pictured below is our darkwood dresser with gold pulls and an antique mirror I inherited from my grandparents. The mirror was broken from our move to Charlotte. The edges were beveled, which I’m trying to replace. However, finding a store that has the glass cutting capability to bevel non straight edges has been challenging. I am hoping to find one in the next week, otherwise I will go ahead and replace the mirror without the beveled edge. I also need to finish styling the dresser. I have a few pieces picked out already. (see below photos for style inspiration)
Fabric find Friday was a success! I purchased 2 yards (to be on the safe side) of grey fabric from Modern Fabric, a designer fabric discount store in Charlotte, to use as trim on our upholstered headboard.
I was going to share DIY for customizing my upholstered headboard. However, sourcing this out might be more efficient since the clock is ticking. I need to check availability and price point for a seamstress to assist with the trim and nailhead. I was hoping to get this accomplished this week, but with it being spring break and visiting family in Florida, my punch list for as successful as I had planned. The look below, found on VT Interiors, is a possibility.
I’ve had fun shopping for accessories to finish the look for our white double dresser and darkwood dresser! If you haven’t seen my finds, follow me on Instragram and Twitter. Here are the styles that are inspiring me to complete the look in the master bedroom.
Love Dear Lillie and her neautral, soft looks! This is what she is working on in her master bedroom. That dresser and mirror are georgous! Looking for a similar gold tray and antique looking picture frame to add to our darkwood dresser.
Love this look from Better Homes and Gardens. That detail in the dresser is beautiful! The arrangement is perfect for a smaller dresser.
I have hit another obstacle on my punch list, wall art for above our upholstered headboard. Recall I wanted to arrange these small wall tiles from Ballard Designs.
I purchased these tiles a few weeks ago and realized that they are on back order until May 8. UGH! I’m on the hunt for a replacement but at this point my plan might not be accomplished in 6 week, yikes!
Again, many thanks for all our feedback and coming back each week to see my progress! Make sure you stop by Linda from Calling it Home and check out all the other great room make overs in ORC!
