Everyone has a space, nook or cranny in their home that they feel is left unfinished…or just needs major help. For me, this space was my master bedroom. After we celebrated our one year anniversary, I felt it was the perfect time to take control of the matter and transform our bedroom into a space that we could enjoy. I immediately consulted my friend and interior design blogger, Emily Hewett of A Well Dressed Home, for the makeover. We brainstormed ideas of how to redo the room in a dramatic way without spending a ton of money. We were able to accessorize most of the room by just pulling things I had crammed in my closets and garage (ever seen that show “Hoarders?”) then after a trip to Laurie Anna’s in Canton, a stop or two at Home Goods, and several DIY projects, my Anthropologie inspired vision came to life!
Check out the before’s. Could be worse I know, but it was just dull and boring. I wanted something major.
So here it is! The transformation:
My DIY projects for the room began with painting the walls a light grey-blue color and replacing the baseboards followed by building the oversized shadow box frame for our wishing tree tags and reupholstering the wingback chair. Obviously the most extravagant project was covering the back wall in vintage book pages, which Emily and I took on. I promise to follow up with step by step instructions for each DIY project soon!
Thank you Emily for your help and design expertise and to oh so talented Misti at Pink Fly Photography for taking the amazing photos!
