Master Bedroom

Since I’ve been totally in the nesting mood lately, I’ve been playing around with different areas around the house. I decide to tackle the master bedroom this week.

I’ve never felt very comfortable in this room – it just never really felt like “me”, you know what I mean? I think it’s mostly because of the traditional dark cherry furniture, which was a wedding gift and is too nice to paint.

So I wanted to “comfy-up” the room a bit and make it more my style.

I needed an art piece to go over this tall dresser, so I was racking my brain trying to come up with something that I already had (think 0 dollars!).

I found this blank white canvas in the attic and decided to paint some lettering on it. This is one of my favorite songs right now, so I used carbon paper to trace the lettering and craft paint to paint the lettering on.

It’s not perfect by any stretch, but I like how it turned out anyway.

I wanted to turn this corner of the bedroom into a cozy little reading nook and had been looking around for a chair to use. I found this slipcovered chair from Ikea and brought in the old door that had been out by the garage to prop behind it.

Oh, and I found those white tab-top curtains at Ikea for only $14 per pair! LOVE!!

The door just has the perfect amount of aging to bring some extra charm to the room!

I splurged and got some new bedding from Target that I am in love with! Again, I don’t love the look of the bed, but the all-white bedding makes it a little less traditional and oozes comfyness!

Hope you enjoyed my little putterings!

  1. LOVE what you did to the bedroom- just a forewarning, Tyler and I have the same comforter and the buttons have been falling off for us! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I love the comforter though, it reminds me of a big cloud!

  2. Oh goodness, I love your room! I actually like the contrast of the dark furniture with your white, chippy, flowy touches. I think you did a fabulous job! My favorite is the door in the corner with the chair. I just hung an old window and am looking for a stick wreath to hang on it.~michelle~

  3. Great minds think alike ๐Ÿ™‚ just bought that same bedding Monday afternoon from our Target ๐Ÿ™‚ and love it! Not too heavy but still will keep us warm this winter. Love love love the colors of the room and the door you brought in!

  4. Aimee I love everything about the print you made. I want to do something like that for a friend, but as I am not a crafty person don't know where to start to find the exact font tracing sheets you used. Could you tell me where you purchased them?

  5. your bedroom looks like a lovely place to nest. I really love what you did to the white canvas, very inspiring. I also love the new white bedding with the dark bed…. the contrast is fab!
