Master Bedroom Makeover

I just finished a little mini-makeover of our master bedroom! This room was one where I decorated it when we moved in almost 5 years ago, then hadn't really done anything else with it. Honestly, I was getting a little bored with the same look in here. There was also a lot of dark furniture and bedding, and while it feels nice and cozy in the winter, for spring and summer it was feeling a bit blah. (You can see the original room here. ) None of the big items in the room have changed, but I think by making some small changes I was able to really brighten up the overall look of the room!

The biggest change I made was changing out the slipcover for our headboard. It was originally chocolate brown velvet, and now it's a cream cotton.

I also swapped out some of the bedding, but on a budget: I used a plain white duvet and pillow covers from the guest room (it will be converted into a nursery soon anyway!) and replaced the brown toile duvet with a blue throw from Home Goods. The blue throw pillow is something I already had- it's one of my best finds, $4.39 at the Restoration Hardware Outlet.

I added this Target lamp to my nightstand, and moved the lamp that was originally here to my husband's nightstand.

Lately my nightstand has been doubling as Allie's dress-up area- girl loves to put on all my bracelets and try to put on my earrings.

I painted these frames next to the armoire white for a bit more contrast.

On this wall, I left up the botanical print but added some white plates from Home Goods. I originally wanted to find some candle sconces for this wall, but I couldn't find anything I liked that wasn't very pricey; I think the plates were a great cheap alternative! I also recovered the chair with a painted grainsack fabric (you can see the tutorial here).

I love how everything turned out (and so does Phil! Yay!). I'm now moving on to some changes in Allie's room, in anticipation of setting up a nursery for her little sister- our house is definitely reaping the benefits of  my crazy pregnant nesting phase :)
