Updates to the Master Bedroom

Happy Friday Y’all!  I hope everyone has been enjoying their last days of summer.  I sure am looking forward to Fall, as it’s my favorite season of all time.  I’m definitely looking forward to cooler temps!  I finally got around to doing this post and after sitting down to look at the pics, I actually feel like I’ve been making progress around here. Woot!

Anywho, last week I stated that I’d share updates to the master bedroom this week.  I’d like to state that I definitely LOVE when people post some dramatic before and after pics where the room is all finished.  However, if I did that, it would probably be years before I’d post anything.  I just can’t seem to work on one room at a time.  Maybe it’ll be better when I’m not interrupted every two seconds by the munchkins :)  Anyway, on to some pics :)

Master Bedroom 8

This is the Master Bedroom “before” (circa January 2014…WOW, it was THAT long ago?!).  You can see that post (here).

Master Bedroom 3

Look at how little my baby was.  I remember being able to put him on the bed and he wouldn’t go anywhere.  Awe, memories.

Master Bedroom 5

Nope, these still aren’t reupholstered.  Are you shocked?  You shouldn’t be ;)

And here we have the “after”.  Those pics above the bed will never be straight.  I have 2 monkeys children who like to jump on the bed and touch those while I’m not looking. Maybe I should have taken the time to straighten them before taking pics?

I kind of want to paint the bookshelf a “fun” color.  Thoughts?  I’m open to suggestions :)

The giant mirror will be going back on top of the dresser, but I was in the middle of painting it when these pics were taken.  It has since been finished and is back in place. Mirrors definitely add so much to a room!

So, there ya have it.  See?  Getting there!  My next steps for this room is to paint all of the furniture.  The hubby thinks I’m nuts and I think he’s a little hesitant with me doing it. This is our first “real” furniture that we bought when we got married and it wasn’t cheap. What can I say?  We both had jobs and no kids, so we bought it new.  It’s what we thought we were supposed to do.  If I were to do it over again, I would buy from a thrift store.  It’s the only way to go (for us anyway).  Especially since I like to re-purpose old stuff.  The set includes an over-sized bedroom set (dresser, night stand and bed) that is just too dark for my taste anymore. Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with the furniture and I still like it, but I want it lighter and brighter.  AND painting is so much cheaper than buying something else.

Also, I’ve increased the size of the photos.  Yay or nay?

    1. Hmmm, I might have to think about that :) I do have a small container of paint similar to that color. Oh, and it’s a cake plate. LOL I suppose it could be used as a candle holder though :)
