Our Master Bedroom

Today I'm sharing the progress of our master bedroom. The only thing master about it is that it has a larger closet then the other two bedrooms in our house. My daughter's room is actually a little larger.

Let's back up a little, here is a before shot of this room when we bought our house:

Okay, carrying on! As usual the shell of the room is pretty neutral. I'm always drawn to neutral colors, but I didn't want to create a boring room. Pops of yellow liven it up, but preserve the calmness of the space. Our bed was a wedding gift from my husband's grandparents. We will treasure it forever.

My mother-in-law gave me her old set of dining chairs. I love getting her hand me downs! I gave them each a unique makeover and they now live in different rooms of our house.  Two of them are in my salon, the other I use as my desk chair. 

We recently added a T.V. to our room. I haven't found just the right furniture piece to set it on yet, so I'm just using something I already had for now. It's such a tight space, but hopefully the right thing will come along soon.

Our closet doors are OLD and really need to be replaced. To hold me over I painted stripes on them using the left over wall paint.

Above our bed I created a gallery wall. The two yellow photo mats were originally white. I painted them with a sample container of paint from Lowe's. I really need to update a few of the pictures. There are no pictures on this wall of my little guy! Isn't that always what happens with the second child! Poor fella!

My husband's side of the room is all decorated in his racing stuff. Trophies, pictures, etc. His trophy collection was outgrowing our small shelf in the living room, so we had to move them. He is pretty awesome.

On my side is the dresser I made over recently. I use it as a night stand too. The mirror above it is a little large. Hopefully I will find one that fits a little better. I just kind of wait for things like that to find me. It happens eventually.

Egg crates make the best jewelry holders. I've seen this on so many blogs. 

I created a burlap border around an oval mirror my grandmother gave me. I'll have to share a tutorial on that project soon.

P.S. I just have to share something personal today. My little girl is starting Kindergarten in two weeks, and has just wrapped up pre-school. I couldn't be more proud of her, but this is a very emotional time for this mama!
