Time for the Big Reveal!! Oooo I have chills! Sorry, but it's my first big reveal. Okay, here goes.
This is the master suite just before we moved in.
This is the master suite now.
I really love green. It is a peaceful, restful, cool color. I love green in all shades and tones. I wanted to be able to walk into the master bedroom after a long hard day and feel refreshed, relaxed, and calm. Hubby and I had a difference of opinion on the exact shade of green for this room, but we both wanted green. He liked a light green, I liked a darker green. While I was away visiting family he decided to mix the two colors together, and then he painted the room. He called to tell me about it, and I can tell you I wasn't so sure about it, but.....I love it!!!! The color is everything I wanted!!!
The bedspread came from Target, it was one of those things, we both looked at it and said "hey, I kinda like that." That sealed the deal for me. As soon as it went on clearance (of course) I bought it, $35. As a housewarming gift my mom bought me stuff to make a bedskirt (which I have not done yet) and also bought me some decorative pillows. I am planning on doing something a little different with the pillows eventually, but not right away.
Not quite sure what I am going to do with the dresser, the yellow pot will definitely stay. I painted it myself, you may have seen it featured on The Virginia House's We Can Do It Cheaper Thursday link party a couple of weeks ago. If you would like to see the tutorial, click on the link above. The chair in the corner came from an auction, $2!! It is solid walnut, I could not believe it sold for so cheap. I want to recover the seat, it is currently covered in red vinyl, but I have not found quite the right fabric yet.
So far the cost of decorating these rooms, $72.95. I set myself a $100 limit for the master bed and bath, and so far I am under it. We'll see how I do with the finishing touches!
I hope you all enjoyed this tour of our bedroom. I love the room, and I can't wait to finish it! Later this week I will be showing you the master bath, and a few things that are in the works for the master suite. As always, if you have any ideas please, please let me know!! I am always on the look out for more ideas.
