I told you I had something up my sleeve! It all started when my husband had to go on a two-day business trip to Dallas. After he left on Tuesday morning, I got to thinking... what if I could pull off a mini master bedroom makeover before he returned on Wednesday evening? You see, our master bedroom has been neglected big time! Because nobody goes up there, it's received no attention whatsoever. I wanted my husband and I to have a nice place to retreat to at the end of the day.
Let me preface this by saying that it was a "mini" makeover. I had less than 24 hours and two children to care for at the same time! I have many, many more plans for this space, so look for "master bedroom makeover 2.0" in the future. :) Without further ado... introducing the final product:
And for comparison, this is what our master bedroom looked like before.
First things first, we needed an actual bed frame -- or in the very least, a headboard. Since upgrading to a king-size bed, our pretty queen-size Z Gallerie bed that we had been using moved to the guest room. I've seen DIY headboards all over the internet, so that's what I set out to do. Fortunately, Home Depot stocks 6' long pre-cut boards for about $5.50 a piece. I used six boards, stained them, and screwed them to the wall using a course drywall screw.
Hayden - the antique cedar chest to frame the foot of the bed, and also picked up a few nightstand accessories...
And finally, I purchased this rug to frame out the space and add a little texture and dimension.
Now that this much is done, I want to do more! (Oh the lack of time and resources). Until next time...
**Update: I have recently posted a tutorial specifically dedicated to the headboard portion of this project. Click here to view.**
