Master Bedroom Remodel

We moved into our new house a couple months ago.  I've been busy, busy, busy decorating (hence, my long absence from my blog).  We're finally starting to feel settled and I'm finally ready to start compiling some before and after pics.  I LOVE before and after pics.  I hope you enjoy mine!  I'm going to begin with my master bedroom.  It's one of the most "finished" rooms.  Are you really ever finished with a room?!?  My husband would tell you, I'm not!

(The before pic is from the real estate listing)

I made the curtains, headboard and throw pillows.  All of the fabric is from and the brand is Premier Prints.  The curtains are Linked Navy Blue.  The headboard is Winston Premier Navy.  The throw pillows are Houndstooth Powder Grey.  I painted my tan burlap lamp shades with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen that I had left over from a previous project.  The coverlet and shams are from West Elm a few years ago and the sheets are from Pottery Barn.  The wall color is Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments (so calming!).  

The headboard was so easy to make.  My hubby picked up a piece of plywood from Lowe's (they cut it to size for him).  I bought a foam mattress pad from Target.  I wrapped the foam pad around the plywood and stapled it to the plywood in the back.  Then I wrapped the fabric over the foam pad and stapled it to the plywood in the back again.  I mounted it to the wall using a french cleat.  Check out my DIY upholstered headboard tutorial for more information.

My friend made the awesome wall monogram for me.  She covered canvases in gray burlap and used black craft paint for the letters.  She free handed the letters based on a font she printed.  Amazing!  I love them!

I hope you enjoyed my before and after!  I love the tranquil feeling of our new bedroom.  I hope to post pics of some other rooms soon.  Stay tuned!!
