Master Bedroom Progress Report

Over the past several months I have been slowly making changes to the master bedroom.  I thought it would be fun today to share a progress update as I have not shown any of the modifications that have been made except for the sneak peak teaser photo of the floor.

You may remember, the main reason for this redo was the “matchy matchy” furniture.  We purchased it years ago as a set – bed, two dressers, bench, mirror, and side table.  Since my decorating style has changed and I now prefer a collected look, I decided it was time make this room more in keeping with the rest of the house.


The first thing to go was the bench at the end of the bed.  It was replaced by a Craigsllst find which looks to be French and fairly old.  I loved the way the new to me bench looked when I bought it so I have left it as is. We then relocated the old bed to my son’s room and traded out bedside tables.  As you can see we still do not have a bed and it will most likely be months before we do.


We switched out the shiny brass ceiling fan for a pretty chandelier, replaced the dark wood shelf above the bed with a vintage starburst mirror, and removed the large mirror over the long dresser in favor of a painting by Jennifer Lanne.


The biggest change occurred a few weeks ago when the carpeting was replaced with hardwood floors in both the bedroom and the closet.  It is hard to tell from the pictures but the room looks and feels so much bigger and brighter.  I may change my mind later, but at this point I do not have plans to add a rug.


Besides the furniture, we also repainted the entire space.  We lightened up my favorite SW Aria Ivory paint by 50% and painted the ceiling BM White Dove.  Painting made such a big difference we have also decided to repaint the bathroom as well.

Below is a reminder of where we began.

Here is what the room looks like today.

Although I still have a few things I would like to do, overall I am so pleased with the progress we have made.  Thanks for following along.  I will be sure to let you know when more changes are made!

Your bedroom looks great! I was wondering if you plan to share more information regarding the floor. I was wondering if it's prefinished hard wood, a veneer, engineered or finished onsite. We are researching the options for our home and I love hearing what other people decided and how/why.

Thank you!
