Master Bedroom Makeover Update - Decorating Ideas!

Hey, gang! I'm back with another update of my progress on the Master Bedroom makeover! If you remember, last week I showed you how to use a piece of trash to make an awesome coat rack. And before that, I employed my tapeless painting skills using environmentally-friendly paint, I managed to disguise a flatscreen TV, and I even conquered the clutter in my closet.
Today, it's all about decorating - one wall! Yep, I'm nothing if not methodical! Or maybe anal...or super-picky...or maybe I'm just lazy...

Reclaimed Deck Wood Coat Rack Tutorial


Hi, everyone! If you follow me on FACEBOOK, you saw that I posted a sneak peek of today's project. I have to say, this one is so from-the-hip that I wasn't sure if it would turn out a project success or a project fail. (But, you know me - you've would have seen the report either way, warts-and-all girl that I am! LOL)

But, as it turns out, this simple tutorial is well-worth sharing, in my honest opinion! I even got unsolicited thumbs up from all the normally-disinterested men in my family! So, maybe I should have titled this post "Decide on something you don't have, hit your trash dumpsters, grab whatever you have in the garage, and hope for the best!"

Painting The Bedroom & Amazon Paint Review

Hi, there!! I'm so glad you could stop by on this first Monday in December! What did y'all do this weekend? Me? Well, my mum-in-law kicked off the holiday season as she does every year - with a Christmas Kickoff Party! She always has a theme. Last year, it was a pajama party and we all showed up in our comfiest jammies. This year, she decided it was a Wear-A-Hat party. You had to come in a hat - one you made, bought, Christmas, not Christmas - anything you wanted. I won "Cutest Hat Wearer" and got a bottle of wine, which is always appreciated, if you know me. Winking smile I do love my wine! This was my award-winning hat:

What's that Vignette Trying to Hide?!


The Hubster was off this past Thursday and Friday and he decided to surprise me! You will have to either guess what he surprised me with or wait until the end of this post, but I will say this - his surprise, while totally awesome, presented me with a decorating challenge. The upside of getting hit with a new decorating challenge is, of course, having new blog post fodder, right? And, so, voila!

Master Bedroom Closet - MASTERED!


Last week, in one of my warts-and-all moments, I shared with you the disaster zone that was my closet. Before I could tackle all the fun stuff of making my bedroom over into the oasis/sanctuary of my dreams, I knew I had to tackle this mess:



So, after gathering some great goodies to make over my master bedroom, I forced myself to knuckle down and turn this mess into a workable clothes closet!

Starting the Master Bedroom Mastery Makeover


You have heard, I'm sure, the old adage "The cobbler's children go barefoot," right? Well, unless you are talking about cherry cobbler (and why would we be talking about cherry cobbler?), the same can sometimes be said of rehabbers and decorators!

While I love making things pretty for others, my own bedroom has been a room I avoid like the plague. I hate to be in there. At night, I can't turn out the lights quickly enough. Believe me, it's not inspiring any magic that one might hope to have in a bedroom. It's just BLAH! I hate blah. I make it presentable when I have people over and they need to be able to put their purses on my bed.


So, basically, I clean the room for other people's purses and so I don't die from a coordinated dust bunny attack while I'm asleep.

My Pinterest Inspiration for Making Over My Master Bedroom


I didn't intend to do a full makeover. Really, I just meant to throw a new coat of paint on the walls...

First of all, your sanctuary should be inviting! You should want to spend time there, rest there, read there, snuggle with the spouse there, bounce on the bed with the kids there! Mine has long since lost most of its inviting qualities. Plus, it's small. Small-ish. And dove gray. Which sounded charming in theory, but is actually B-O-R-I-N-G in real life.
