Master Bedroom Finally Finished....

This pic. was suppose to go at the end ....but oh well.
I had decided to paint the background of my built in vanity...this color is Bamboo.

The room started out white and went to a light blue that just didn't work for me.


More of the light blue that didn't work and pieces of furniture that didn't work where I had them.



Several colors on the wall....what shall I choose?




I went with Mercer Blue (Valspar Paint: Eddie Bauer). I found some window treatments at Ross that were inexpensive. I also found some nice rods and finials at Hobby Lobby that were also on sale. :)





I painted the background behind the built in shelves a chocolate brown color, the built in had doors on them and I removed them several months ago. I like the depth of the shelves w/ the dark color.






Next came tassels, I love tassels. I pulled the curtains together with a tassel for a more custom look. See the drawers in the built in vanity: I changed that color to Bungalow Gold (Valspar Paint: Eddie Bauer), this color looked much better with the curtain panels. The lamp on the bedside table was found in a hall closet, it needs some pretty books stuck underneath it for height.







Bedding was changed to the Boathouse Collection from Ralph Lauren, I waited forever for it to go on sale. I mix and match this comforter with some older Ralph floral sheets I have and some striped sheets and sometimes Ralph leopard. The green silky quilted shams and coverlet at the end of the bed help add a layered look (from Wal-Mart a couple of years ago).
Some to these pics. you have seen before, but I wanted to show you the befores and afters.
Have a lovely day friends!!
Coming up and hopefully I won't take too long to show you....
1. I'll show you what I did with the wooden star that I repainted.
2. I'm doing a makeover on a chair for my entry way.

Okay..my blogging friends have to STOP this maddness of craftiness! It's doing NOTHING for my poor self-esteem. I just told Soladay that I may have to reacquaint myself with anti-depressants to make myself feel worthy again.

But it looks good!
